[a continuation of the lessons I learned in Vegas. more about that trip can be found here.]
Loving unconventionally is what Jesus is all about.
His approach to love was strange but needed for the people He came to save; ours should be too.
Our visit to Vegas coincided with what Grace City called “Love Week”: a week dedicated to reaching out to the city of Vegas to love them without restrictions or an agenda. The premise was that God’s love has no agenda. He just loves us. There’s no catch to His grace. One of the most beautiful phrases I heard all week was this: “Jesus died for the catch.” And so, we ought to love others without a catch.
Some of the ways that we reached out during Love Week were a little… atypical. At one point, I wrote “Free Hugs” on a sign, for cryin’ out loud. Two of my favorite ways of expressing the love of Christ were buying people’s coffees and the Compliment Chair.
