"Across The Street", by Pastor Scott Oldenburgh - Part 1 of 4 in the series “Who Is My Neighbor?” - Darkness is the absence of light and even a small light can be seen in the dark. Jesus, to whom the church belongs, called us to be lights wherever we are, and we are are around our neighbors and work colleagues the most. Our neighbors and work colleagues are struggling and it is up to us to make a point of getting to know them and eventually let them know that there is hope - a light in the darkness. The Bible and Jesus' teachings are true for people today as it was in the past. Cultures may change, but people issues and people themselves are the same. This week's message, notes and guide provide practical help in learning who our neighbors are. The free notes and a study guide for this message, and free notes, study guides, videos and MP3s for other messages, are available on somethinggenuine.org.
