Sunday Recap (1)
Yesterday, Ribble Valley Church started The Planted Series, based around the truth that those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish (Ps 92:12-13).
The topic of yesterdays messages was ‘‘Living and Dying for Christ” and Ps Ed and guest speaker Ps Richard Scholes laid down some helpful guidelines –
- He saw a vision of Jesus. (Jesus is THE ULTIMATE cause worth living for and worth dying for)
- He responded appropriately. What changes do you need to make in your life NOW to respond to the cause of Christ?
- He recognised God’s hand in everything. When Paul and Silas were in prison, they didn’t complain, they praised! Instead of moaning, the took the opportunity to preach the gospel to the entire prison!
Ultimately, we learned that living and dying for Christ is often not the easiest route, but is always the most fulfilling route. Too often we get into a storm for Jesus, but then let go of our anchor in the midst of trouble.
Don’t let go of your anchor in the storm!
What do you think? What does living for Christ mean to you? What about dying for Him? How do we do it? Why not leave a comment and share your thoughts.
