Loving God: Heart and Soul
Dr. Tony Chute, Lead Pastor
Overview: Our mission at Northpoint is to love God, love one another, and reach out to His world. This mission is basic yet fundamental; and it is intentionally unoriginal. Our call to love God and to love one another comes from Jesus’s answer to a Pharisee when He was asked about the great commandment. The fact that Jesus summed up the Law and Prophets in this way underscores the importance of love, reminding us not to go through the motions of the Christian life without it. We are thus called to love because God is love; He has created us to love and to be loved; He has saved us through an act of love; He has given us a new heart with which to love; and He has made Heaven to be a world of love. As we worship the Lord at Northpoint, let us keep our mission in mind by loving God with our heart and soul.
