This week in our third part of a teaching through 1 Thessalonians Pastor Justin brings an important and convicting message to the body of Christ here at RUC. We look at 6 methods or should we say motivations behind a God-built Church. The consumerist western Church culture sits not only in our everyday popular culture but creeps into the church and the motivations as to what we do and why. This consumer culture of church hinders our relationship with Christ and with one another. We find that we are not too different from the Thessalonians and need to look to Christ for the grace, strength and wisdom to live out the Gospel in our everyday lives. Not from a place of earning the love of God, no, but rather we serve because we know we are already loved in Christ by His sacrifice on the cross.
