This Week: May 15th, 2022

It is easy to see the riches in your life as a blessing for being faithful to Christ and His teachings.   Equate riches to 'stuff' and it takes on an entirely different meaning.   Worldly rewards for yourself or for your church, do not necessarily mean that God is being generous to you because of your faith.    He's not giving you an ice cream cone because you had a good day at school.  He does, however, provide for our needs so that His will can be advanced in our lives.   The scriptures are full of examples that demonstrate God's provisions for the lives of the early church and its followers, but some churches, such as Laodicea had began to straddle the line between the world and Christ.   Christ berated them because they were neither on fire for either but 'lukewarm' as they attempted to satisfy both.   Eventually the world will demand more than God demands for His children.  And while the world's definition for success can change with each generation, God is never changing.  He is the same today as he was 2,000 years ago.   And whether you have money or are poor in the eyes of the world, God's final judgement is based on how well you loved His son and how well you loved one another.

This Week's Worship Service

May 15th, 2022 - The early Laodicean church by all accounts was a wealthy and well established church.   They had become so by appearing to be both faithful to the teachings of Christ but also adopting worldly provisions to grow.   Christ called them out on this 'lukewarm' approach to their ministry.   They believed that because of their riches, God had blessed them.  So in their minds, they were not failing.   But being rich in the world does not equate to being rich in Christ.

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.
