Tony Merida: ‘Love Your Neighbor’ sermon series

Tony Merida, pastor for preaching and vision at Imago Dei Church in Raleigh, N.C., has just concluded a sermon series called “Love Your Neighbor.” The series focused on central aspects of our mission as believers, including issues like mercy and justice ministry, hospitality and evangelism, and adoption and orphan care.

If you have a heart for multiplying justice in your community, you will benefit greatly from these four videos:

Hospitality and the Kingdom of God (Luke 14:12-24)

Mercy Ministry (Luke 10:25-37)

Three Ways to Live (Luke 15:1-2, 11-32)

Our Adoption in Christ (Romans 8:12-17)

Is he (in Dr. Carl Henry’s memorable phrase), “the God of justice and of justification”? How is it that so many of us staunch evangelical people have never seen, let alone faced, the barrage of biblical texts about justice?

and

What sort of a community do we think the church is meant to be? Is it not often indistinguishable from the world because it accommodates itself to the prevailing culture of injustice and indifference?
