“Compassion means recognizing first and foremost the humanity of an individual, and seeing them as created in the image of God.”

Jason Cook delivered a message at TGC’s 2018 Carolinas Regional Conference titled “I Am Your Neighbor,” as a part of their series “Equipped for Every Good.” Teaching from Luke 10, Cook addressed the nature of discipleship, particularly as it pertains to engaging culture as people who love both God and neighbor. Cook added the caveat that what we often consider to be neighbor love may not actually reflect what it means to love others as ourselves.
