Messy Christianity…Amazing Love Produces a Contagious Environment

Scripture Emphasis:

Luke 22:27 “For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.”

If a Vibrant Community of believers is defined by being Bible based, Christ centered and Grace driven, then a contagious environment is built through service.  In God’s economy serving one another is perhaps the second greatest piece of the puzzle a believer has behind loving one another.  In the Upper Room, Jesus links both together forever.  If done correctly, it produces an unbelievable contagious environment.
