This fall, we will be diving in to a new sermon series that we’re calling: Give Careful Thought to Your Ways from Haggai 1.
Everyone has a WAY of living. One might not be able to verbalize their ways, but you can easily see them in the daily rhythm of life.
At Riverside, we help each other “Give Careful Thought to Our Ways.” There are many scriptures about paying attention to your daily rhythms and aligning them with God’s mission: for example, Haggai 1:5, Matthew 7:21-23, Mark 1:35, John 15:4-5, Romans 12:1-2, Colossians 2:6-8, 1st Timothy 4:8, Hebrews 12:1-2, and 2nd Peter 2:5-9.
Becoming more like Jesus requires a plan of action; otherwise, it will never happen. Because of this, Riverside’s main approach to ministry is helping one another live intentionally.
Make no mistake, we do not think someone can “will themselves” to become more like Jesus nor “earn” God’s love. But we each have a major role to play in structuring our lives and cultivating space for our growth. Riverside is committed to helping each other move beyond random, haphazard approaches to following Jesus.
