"Looking Out for Number What?"
Pastor Rich Theilen
When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, he pointed to two: the commandment to love God, and the commandment to love others as we love ourselves. Many people believe that means we need to "love ourselves" before we can "love others." But is that exactly what Jesus had in mind? Maybe—or maybe not. Join us Sunday as we take one final look at the "Love Life of a Christian" by exploring where we can get "loving ourselves" right—and where we might be tempted to get it wrong.
Miss a week? Audio of the sermons are available on our website! Click here to listen.
