There are two ways to grieve the sorrows of this life: With hope, or without it.
What is God's will for my life? What does he want from me? We wonder about who to marry, where to go to college, what to do after school, should we move after retirement, etc, and sometimes feel almost paralyzed not knowing exactly what God's will is for our lives. In this message, we'll find out that his will for us is both more difficult than choosing a college, and at the same time much simpler.
The Holy Spirit has been given to the church as the power to do what we’ve been called to do – which is what? In this message from one of River City’s Leadership Team, we look at what the church is empowered to do.
Ever feel like reading the Bible, knowing Jesus, understanding how you ought to live, is like trying to chisel through granite with a fork? We cannot understand what we read or how to live in faith without the power of the Holy Spirit as our map, our guide, and the power to unearth the Treasure.
After his death and resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven. In this message, we look at three quick but massive reasons why Jesus had to ascend, and what it matters to us today.
There are two kinds of people in the world, and they aren't rich/poor, Democrats/Republicans, slave/free, white/other. The two kinds of people are those who believe the cross and resurrection are nonsense, and those who believe the cross and resurrection are the power of God for salvation.
If you sat down with Jesus, and he asked how he can pray for you, what would you say? As it turns out, Jesus did pray for you in John 17. Join us as we look at what he prayed for us.
Maybe you’ve had computer problems before, and someone told you, “Have you tried turning it off, and turning it back on again?” Sometimes a reboot helps solve the problem. What would happen if this virus/quarantine/etc is part of God’s merciful reboot in our lives? Shutting things down so that we learn to view them rightly?
As the coronavirus continues to leave it's mark on our lives, we turn to the Psalms to help us lament the fact that the world isn't as we'd like it to be. The longings we experience in these days (coffee with friends, going out to eat, not worrying about jobs, etc) are really longings for heaven. And because of Jesus, that is one guarantee that we can be sure of.
