Major W. Ian Thomas in his book, The Indwelling Life of Christ, wrote the following:
"The Lord Jesus came from heaven to earth not just to get us out of hell and into heaven--though He is the only One who can and does, if we let Him--but to get Himself out of heaven and into us. He gave himself for us to give Himself to us, the gift of His Life, so that we may enjoy a wonderful, personal relationship with Him that never changes, because 'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.' (Hebrews 13:8)"
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, our Creator, God is remaking us into the image of Christ. He wants us to be just like Jesus, to have the same attitude that Jesus had, an attitude filled with love, compassion, forgiveness, honesty, purity and hope. This is to be our focus as Christians...the pursuit of Christlikeness. This will be the focus of this Sunday's message from Pastor Roger.
Please join us Sunday at 9:30am in our air-conditioned worship center as Pastor Roger shares with us from God's Word on how we can become more like Jesus.
Also, consider joining us at 8:45am in Pastor Doug's office, for a special time of praying for Parkside and the other churches that meet on our campus.
Special Update: As we gather for our in-person service, Parkside church staff and leadership will be wearing masks and we are asking everyone to do the same. Please consider joining us this weekend. We were created by God to worship and praise Him together, in community, so plan on being at Parkside this Sunday at 9:30am and don't forget your mask!
Also, for those that are not able to join us in-person, you can still join us online
After the service, at 10:45am, we invite you to join our "after-church" discipleship class 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.
See class details below:
Discipleship Study: Revelation (The Christian's Ultimate Victory)
