Following Jesus in the 21st Century — Part 9: Self-Giving Love

This is Episode 88 of the Jesus Society Podcast. Today, we’re going to conclude our series on Following Jesus in the 21st century, and in particular, looking at the importance and practice of love, particularly as we think about extending that love outward to the watching world.

I hope you’ll join me today as we discuss:

1. Following Jesus in Love

2. Does love compel or invite?

3. Chasing a rabbit — repentance

4. How love advances the kingdom

5. How the early church lived out Jesus’ victory of love, and how that advanced the kingdom

6. Caring for those who need care.

7. Love means meeting urgent needs.

8. You are God’s masterpiece.

9. And much, much more . . . .


And with that, I want to thank you for joining us today. I hope you’ll join us again next week.
