Gospel Motivated Care for the Vulnerable

Because of the uniqueness of this time of year, we had a 2-week mini series called Loving Life by Loving People. On January 18, we asked the question, Why Do “Black Lives Matter”?” Yesterday, we focused in on those vulnerable children in our culture; who the Bible refers to as “the fatherless”. In modern American society, this is primarily those kids in the foster care system; globally this is the orphaned and abandoned. This quote from the Austin Stone Church website is a great summary of what we talked about…

By God’s overflow of mercy and grace, we have been adopted into His family. While once orphans, we have been rescued by love. This reality changes everything! God has set his love on us. And by the power of His Spirit, we are freed to set our love on orphans, caring for them as family and pointing them to our Savior, for the glory of His name.

Listen to the sermon, Protecting the Vulnerable (1/25) or Why Do “Black Lives Matter” (1/18)

We used this well-done video as an introduction…
