A Message from Pastor Rodney:
October 26, 2014
We continue our study of Acts, as we work our way through this yearís theme: Becoming the Church of Christ
The disciples prayed for boldness in proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ, and this week we see a second challenge to living a bold, Christian life: People. Living a bold life requires change and challenge. People donít like changes or challenges. In fact, one of the first things you will notice if you try to do something new or adventuresome is it will irritate other people. Oftentimes, the ones most irritated are the people who are closest to us. What should we do? We donít try to be irritating. We donít try to make other people uncomfortable. BUT, we are called to follow Christ. We are called to love and serve our neighbor. Sometimes the best way to follow, love and serve will irritate or discomfort. In fact, it might even irritate or discomfort us. The deep question we need to ask is, ďWho are we following? Who are we loving and serving? If you struggle with living life boldly or need encouragement in love and service, Parkside Church is the place where you belong!
