The Blessed life that Jesus points out is so foreign and contrary to what the world values. It’s even more so today. But Jesus lays out this Kingdom Way to show us the path to the blessed and happy life. Are you feeling blessed today? What areas or attitudes need to be altered in your life to align with His kingdom?
Israel had to be conquered by God before they could go and conquer. God’s conquering comes by our dying to the flesh. When we die to the flesh and live in the Spirit, we can walk in victory. That’s the book of Joshua.
Pastor Brent explains why Riverside supports Israel. When we say we support Israel, we do so from a biblical position and understand that this is a nation that God has chosen for very specific purposes. If this is a nation that God has chosen and a nation He is not done with, then we’re going to support what God is doing! And we hope to make it clear from God’s Word why we hold this view.
Paul lived solely to magnify Jesus Christ in every aspect of his life. To Him, to live is Christ and to die is gain. For to live is to preach the good news of Jesus and bring many more into the kingdom of God, but to die is to live eternity with the Saviour whom he loved. With what perspective are you living your life?
