Love God and love others, in that order. Author Tim Muehlhoff encourages families to not just be against something in the culture, but to be for something by serving in their community.

As believers, our lives should be characterized by always showing love and care to those around us.

Author Tim Muehlhoff, a professor of communication at Biola, talks about the importance of balancing truth and grace in our speech. Muehlhoff believes Christians should familiarize themselves with opposing beliefs in order to understand that perspective. The gospel, he states, gives us humility to say, "I can learn from people I disagree with, and even if we disagree, I still care about you and your community."

Dr. Juli Slattery, author of "ReThinking Sexuality," explains what it means when parents sexually disciple their children on the biblical view of sex. From outward appearances, the world has won in the sexual arena, but Slattery tells why she believes Christians need to reclaim lost territory. Every sexual issue is ultimately a spiritual issue, and what we think about sex begins with what we think about God.

Rosaria Butterfield and her husband, Kent, wanted to get to know their neighbors when they moved into their new neighborhood. So they moved the grill and picnic table into the front yard, and now it's become a favorite meeting place for friends and neighbors alike. Butterfield illustrates how she practices radical hospitality, caring for her neighbors, welcoming the stranger, and loving the lonely. By doing this, she explains, we can live out the gospel in front of others and build relationships, and hopefully see others come to Christ.

Wife and mom Rosaria Butterfield talks about practicing radical ordinary hospitality as a way to live out the gospel. It's not always practical or sensible, and opening up your home to soothe and serve the lost will cost you something, but the blessings are unfathomable. Jesus is alive, and our neighbors are image-bearers of a holy God even if they don't know Him yet. Butterfield reminds us that hospitality isn't just an event that you do when the cat hair is off the couch and you've swept the floor, but our homes are the places where we can take the church to the people.
