Roughly half of the people on the planet today live in globalized cities with populations of 100,000 or more. God’s heart beats for the nations, and Scripture is filled with narrative about cities—well over a hundred cities are specifically mentioned in the Bible. Explore God’s heart for the city from Genesis to Revelation, and discover God’s love for all people. Focus on being Christ centered by loving your neighbors and getting involved in your neighborhood. Find ways to practically love your neighbors and be involved in ways that demonstrate great love and compassion for those who are on your doorstep.
