We try to live our lives in this simple expression: JESUS, UP, IN and OUT (J-UIO).
JESUS is the center of our lives. Not only did He come to earth to die for our sins but He also gave us an example of how to live in His kingdom. He is our only way UP to relate to the Father (John 14.6). He has commanded us to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22.37). He has also commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22.39). We have two types of neighbors, those who are IN the family of God and those who are OUT-side the family. For those who are IN the family, we are to love them the way Jesus loved us (John 13.34-35). For those who are OUT-side the family of God, we are to love them by introducing them to the Son of God so that they may in turn know the Father and become a part of the family of God (Matthew 28.18-20).
JESUS-UP-IN-OUT captures everything we need to learn and do in order to obey the two great commands: love God and love people.
