This Week: May 26th, 2024

When we look at the interactions of the Jewish leaders towards Jesus during His ministry, we see a group of men bound by, and hiding behind, legalistic rhetoric that had been passed down for generations, taught to each successor as the truth.  However, when confronted with the truth, that Christ was who He said He was, they were too blinded by their own supposed righteousness to see it.   How often do we, as believers today, fall into a similar trap with our understanding of scripture.   We've read enough to figure we've got it covered and dutifully go about our lives professing our belief in Christ.   But a relationship with Christ demands constant interaction, through prayer and a continual study of scripture.  Why?  It is because Christ illuminates Himself to us in different ways during different phases of our lives.  Each season we go through can be a different challenge than the previous one, and without returning to Him for comfort, we miss out on lessons intended for us at that time, not when we were much younger.  Never believe that God has offered you all you need to know to face the World.  Always be present with Him and open the eyes of our hearts to hearing something new.

This Week's Worship Service

May 26th, 2024 - Legalistic Jewish leaders peppered Jesus with competitive language not merely to trap Him in His own words, but to demonstrate an unbelief in His claims.  How could the most learned men of Jewish law, who had kept its own citizens in bondage to the law, have missed Jesus?

John 8:31-38

Who We Are

Rockvale Cumberland Presbyterian Church has been a landmark in Rockvale Tennessee since 1889 at a simpler time when church was an integral part of the community.   Church members were family that leaned on each other in times of struggle and celebrated together in times of joy.   This spirit lives on in our diverse congregation bound together by a love for Christ and for one another.   Our motto is simple, 'Whosoever will, is welcome - just as you are', in the manner as Christ said 'Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.'   We hope to see you this Sunday morning.
