Sunday Recap for February 12, 2017
Helping the Helpless

Mission Highlight: Thank you Phil about sharing about District 5, where you go to school at UCSF! It was great to be challenged about having conversations about faith with people who are different from us, and to pray that God's people might serve in love and boldness that others may come to know Christ. Here are some facts about District 5, so we can continue to pray for these neighborhoods throughout the week!
  • The primary neighborhoods of District 5 are Haight Ashbury, Lower Haight, Fillmore, Western Addition, Parnassus Heights, North Panhandle, Anza Vista, Lower Pacific Heights, Japantown, part of Hayes Valley, part of Ashbury Heights, and part of UCSF. 
  • The population is around 70,000 people.
  • District 5 is estimated to be 60% White, 17% Asian, 16% Black, and 7% Hispanic.
  • About 23% of the residents of District 5 were born overseas.
  • Well over half of the residents of District 5 have a bachelors degree or higher.
Question #4: How and why did God create us?
Answer: God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
This week's Sermon: "Helping the Helpless" (Psalm 10)

 “Then he will say to those on his left, Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me. Then they also will answer, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you? Then he will answer them, saying, Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me. And these will go away into eternal punishment, but righteous into eternal life” 
(Jesus in Matthew 25:41-46)
  “If you think you have a saving relationship with God and you don’t have a relationship with the poor and oppressed, you’re mistaken” (Pastor Tim Keller)
“Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him” (Proverbs 14:31)
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed.” (Proverbs 19:17) 
Main Idea:  God calls us into the messiness of loving the least of these.
