From House to House sermon video. Jesus said it all boils down to loving God and loving your neighbor – the people doing life around you. I want to talk about how a DISCIPLE relates with people. A DISCIPLE breaks bread FROM HO– USE TO HO– USE. How do you do with this one? When is the last time you met in a house with other believers, had a meal with them, ministered to them, and allowed them to minister to you?

Scriptures: Acts 2:44-47; John 13:35; Acts 2:42; Matthew 18:20; John 13:34; Romans 12:10; Galatians 5:13; Acts 2:44-45
I read a story about an old house like this in Chicago that had been left idle for years. It was run down, overgrown, abandoned. Finally, in 2001, the old rundown house went up for auction because of back taxes. Someone was semi familiar with the old house and it sold for such a low price, they bought it, if for nothing else, the property. When they went into it, they found a horrific situation. They found an old rundown house, but also found a dead man named Adolph Stick. He apparently died of natural causes. He was sitting alone in his chair. Next to Adolph Stick was a newspaper from 1997. Adolph Stick had been dead for four years and no one even noticed, not a neighbor, not a relative, not a friend. The man had been dead four years and no one cared. How does someone die and no one notices and no one cares? The Lord does not want us to do life where no one cares.
Adolph Stick is a sad story. It speaks of a life that obviously did not give to others, so no one cared about him. Once a Pharisee asked Jesus, “What’s the most important commandment of all?” Someone said there are 1,613 commands in the Bible. Without so much as a blink, Jesus took the 1,613 commands and condensed them down to an absolute focus. (continue sermon notes)
