Neil Montgomery, Congregational Care Pastor at Scottsdale Bible Church, quoting Larry Crabb, defines agape love as “putting the needs of another person ahead of my own at any cost.” Neil says the true expression of our worship is without doubt the way we relate to one another. Neil articulates, “We are simply to be like Christ in walking with people through their problems”, rather than fixing them. “When you surrender and taste freedom and you begin to truly see yourself as a worshipper 24/7, then God turns you — and you begin to pour out your life in generosity.” Neil shares a powerful time when God brought him to the end of himself, and he gave up the control of the outcomes. “Let God control the outcome, and learn to feed your soul. Learn to abide and rest in him, and let the fruit of the spirit be the thing that comes out.”
