Below are the most recent messages from each of our campuses.
We are reconciled into the Kingdom of God. Our new vocation is to be ambassadors of God to reconcile others. We are made new. We are no longer part of a political party, or an ethnicity, we are Citizens of the Kingdom of God. We are ambassadors of God first, before anything else.
We were once orphans, and we are now given a seat at God's table as his children and heirs. What greater way to appreciate that love than to show the same to the orphans and vulnerable children of our world? Click here to learn more about or get involved in orphan care at RHMV.
James 1:27, Jeremiah 7:3-7, Matthew 13:44 In a world corrupted by sin we are all orphans that are separated from God who has all we need. Caring for orphans helps us remember our own dependency on grace. We were all adopted b God. Jesus is the one that came and brought us to God's table. God desires us. He saw us when we were unseen.
We are called by Christ to live as Christ lived, to literally be the body of Christ, to be a human body filled with the Holy Spirit doing the work of God. We are called to love as Christ loved, and Christ loved the orphans. Hear what the bible says about orphans, and hear stories of people who have decided to get involved with orphans; as foster care parents; as camp volunteers, and as adoptive parents.
As God's people, we want to continually be aligning our hearts to God's heart so that we care about and want the things God cares about and wants. Today, we look at how God feels about vulnerable people and, specifically, orphans.
