Last sunday we came to the end of Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount", which we've been looking at over the past number of weeks as we go through Jesus' life and teachings in the book of Matthew.
It raised an important question for us to ask ourselves, which is (in the parabolic terms of building a house either on rock or on sand): What is your foundation? What are you building your life or your faith on? (see Matthew 5:24-27)
Another way of looking at it is, am I basing my life on Jesus and his teachings, or on something else which is not going to withstand the storms of life and reality? Am I instead building it on tradition, or on morality or religion, on my career or my family, or even just on myself? If I come to church, why is it that I do?
At RPC we're hoping to keep trying to understand more of what it means to be both followers of Jesus individually and as a church community, and to try and begin to live that out in our lives together. If you want to be involved too, or even just to come along to see what's happening to begin with, Sunday mornings are a great place to start!
