This Sunday, we will continue our summer series called, FOCUSED. I believe the word "focused" is a perfect way to describe how Jesus lived his life here on earth. Everything Jesus said or did, from his formal teachings, parables and miracles, to his dinner conversations, were designed to point people to God and His kingdom. Jesus said it best in Matthew 6:33: "Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously and he will give you everything you need."
In Hebrews 11:6 the author writes these words, "He (God) rewards those who earnestly seek him". Earnest, diligent, sincere, these are all great words to describe how we are to seek after God. In other words, be hungry in your searching, relentless in your pursuit. Don't be satisfied with the stars in the sky. Seek him as the shepherds did. Long for him as Simeon did. Worship him as the wise men did. God rewards those who seek him. Not those who seek doctrine or religion or systems or creeds. The reward is reserved for those who seek nothing less than God Himself. And what is the reward? That we will be given the heart of Jesus (II Corinthians 3:18). Can you think of a better gift than than to be like Jesus? Come this Sunday, focused, ready to seek the face of God, so that we can be changed through the power of the Holy Spirit into the likeness of His Son, Jesus.
SUNDAY AT 10:45 AM
Trudy Reusser will be continuing the discussion based on the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation unveils the glory of Jesus Christ. Written by the Apostle John, Revelation is a reminder to remain faithful and trust God, even when things around us don't make sense.
At Parkside, our goal is to create a safe place for a diverse community of people to gather together, explore faith, Jesus and how a faith in Jesus can bring about life transformation. All of this begins in community and no matter your age or stage of life, we want to make sure you find a place where you can build strong relationships and live life with others. Listed below are a few ways to help you connect with others at Parkside.
