This Week: June 28th, 2020

Often Christian's hear from non-believers that if God was so powerful why doesn't he come into the world and fix this mess.   Every day that you turn on the news you are bombarded with human suffering, sin, and conflicts with one another.   If God was 'all that' then why doesn't he wave his hand and make it all away.   Well, the first problem is God didn't create this mess, we did.   God gave His creation free-will to make a choice good or bad and live with the consequences of our decision.  But God did intervene.  He did come down and give us a path to 'fix this mess' and it begins with an individual choice to follow Christ Jesus who is God 'with us' as He became flesh and gave us the example we should follow.   Then, he took upon Himself the penalty of our wrongdoings so we will no longer be held prisoner to our mistakes and are forgiven, given a second chance, and a promise of life after this.   He gave us hope.   He showed us love so we can show others love.  In this week's Pastor Post, Pastor Jonathan explains that our daily walk in this knowledge of Christ Jesus's purpose is where the renewal of our mind, soul and spirit occurs.  The daily walk is where courage rises up.  Peace keeps us in a place where we can calmly respond to situations , but courage allows us to act with Godly power so we can move forward to our next stage of growth.

This Week's Sermon

June 28th, 2020 - We need to remember that each one of us has been chosen by God.  Some of us like to think we chose God but if we remember that God chose us, it makes it harder to leave God.  If we think we chose God, it becomes incumbent on us to make the effort to remain with him.  But God chose us and draws us to him through Jesus Christ.   The best thing about this is that we are never alone, never empty and never unloved.  When we fully understand this simple truth, it becomes our desire to treat others the way God has treated us.  Or it should be.   This morning Pastor Jonathan reminds us that we should live our lives as the example set for us by the grace and sacrifice of God.   And let our lives mirror that to everyone we meet.

Colossians 3:12-17

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.
