The Overflow Principle is now in print! This is a 7-week small group Bible study that explores what it means to love God with a whole heart and love your neighbor as yourself.
The study first looks at how to cultivate a loving relationship with God in three ways: receiving God’s love with your MIND, with your SPIRIT, and with your BODY. Then it looks at practical ways to overflow God’s love to your neighbor. First it looks at loving your COMFORTABLE NEIGHBOR — your family, friends, and faith/social community. Then, it looks at the heart of the Gospel and exposes the fact that the true neighbor is your UNCOMFORTABLE NEIGHBOR – the person who is different from you, and perhaps a little scary to you, or even your enemy.
The way of Jesus is a way of love that sees beyond the external trappings of class, race, politics, and creed, and sees the preciousness of the human being as a beautiful creation of God that longs to belong as an equal member of God’s family, and in so being, deserves our unconditional love. It is a way of being that looks into the eyes of the persecutor and says, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” It is the way that remembers Jesus’ words, “What you have done for the least of these, you have done for me.”
