Everybody Always

In the season of Lent, FPCM studies Everybody Always by Bob Goff. What happens when we stop worrying about a challenging world full of difficult people and instead simply love everybody? From finding the exact right number of friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible.

Love Everybody Always

We tend to mark people as good people or bad people but no one is either all good or all bad. When you start to get to know people they stop being flat characters and you start to see them as people that God calls you to love.
Scripture: Luke 10:25-37 and Matthew 18:1-5

Love Without Condemnation

Consider empathy and shame when it comes to loving people who you might find a little creepy. Instead of judging them you will be asked to consider where they’ve come from and what they’ve been through. Scripture: Matthew 16:13-20 and
Luke 15:11-32.

Be Loved in Brokenness

God saves broken people. Even if you did everything right, it would separate you from God because you did it on your own. Jesus calls prostitutes and tax collectors so that he could give them grace. Let’s get real about our failures to find God’s grace. Scripture: Matthew 6:1-4 and John 9:1-11

Love Messed Up People

Who you spend your time with is a big deal. We normally tend to live by “bad company corrupts good character” but that isn’t How Jesus lived, he ate with the messy people. Opening up to God is not just about seeing your own need but drawing close to other needy people. Scripture: John 17:20-30 and Matthew 25:31-46

Love Fearlessly or Be Not Afraid

It is not easy to love people well. It can risk your comfort, your plans, your life. Do not fear losing the life you build for yourself. Only fear meeting a holy God and not being ready. Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:6-12 Matthew 20:18-22

Love in Action Part 1

Before you ever did anything or thought about loving anyone or were able to love anyone, Jesus died for you. All of our actions find their start in this one moment, we are always part 2 to his part 1. Scripture: Romans 5:8 and Gospel reading.

Love in Hope

 Jesus comes back new as a first fruit of the new creation. You are in the process of being made new as well. You get to life Easter and resurrection each day as you welcome his grace.
