“Love God; Love Each Other; Love the Lost ”

by Pastor Jon Haakana

Eight years ago, I shared a simple three-prong approach to our mission and ministry here at Mount Olive: UP, IN, and OUT. I also suggested how we as a congregation can live out that simple formula; Our Purpose: Love God, Love Each Other, and Love the Lost. Let’s take a closer look at those three aspects.

UP—Love God: Here we speak of how we respond TO God for all He has done for us in Jesus, our Savior from sin and death. The first Great Commandment is “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and all your mind and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37). In others words, love your God with all you got. We do that as we faithfully respond to Him with our worship. 

We also love God with everything as we faithfully engage Him in Scripture study, devotion, prayer and meditation. Please take every opportunity you have to be with God as you “fall in love all over again” with your God and Savior. The best way to grow in our relationship with God is to gather weekly to celebrate together with your brothers and sisters in Christ at MOLC, learn from God’s Word, and be challenged to take next steps together.
