V.M.I. takes the Gospel and God’s Word to remote areas that aren’t easily exposed to missionary activity.


The Project of Love.

Get us all wrapped up in the foolishness and silliness, the toxic and trivial, …

…so that we never get around to doing what our Father has asked us to do.

Today we are going to examine the project that our Father has asked us to take on.

JOH 15:12

There are many commands in the New Testament letters, but they can all be summed up in one word: love.

ROM 13:8-10

COL 3:12-14

HOW do we put on love?

The commands in Paul’s letters provide answers to this question.

The job description includes both qualities and activities that we are to take on. They make up our project of love.

#1: Serve one another: bear one another’s burdens.

#2: Perform good works.
#3: Foster unity in the body.

#4: Adopt love’s qualities.
#5: Put other people’s needs ahead of your own.

#6: Never take your own revenge. Be at peace with others.

#7: Edify one another by speaking the truth & singing.

#1: Serve one another: bear one another’s burdens.

ROM 16:1-12

They have a deep love for the brethren, so they are great servants.

GAL 5:13-14
GAL 6:2

You fulfill the law of Christ by BEARING ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS.

When was the last time someone was asked to step down from leadership because they failed to bear another’s burdens??

#2: Perform good works.

GAL 6:9-10

Works won’t get us saved, but after we are saved, good works are in our job description.

TIT 3:14
