Why Love DC?



What does radiating Jesus’ values to a lost and dying world mean? In today’s talk, Ben Stuart looks at the biblical definition of The Church and gives us practical applications for today on what it means to supply and serve the needs of the people around us.

Key Takeaway

We reflect God's character by freely giving our time and efforts to those in need.

Why do we supply and serve those in need?

  1. God's kids reflect God's character. It doesn't mean you earn it—it means you look more like God. Because God is gracious, we are gracious. Because God is generous, we are generous.
  2. Because we look like our dad, His generosity is aimed at those in need. God associates deeply with the weakest among us.
  3. Generosity is a sign of faith in God's provision and solidarity with His mission. Trust that He will provide for you and then be about His mission. Greed comes from fear.


"It's not trying to pay Him back in gratitude, it's an invitation to be a part of His expanding mission."
