Redefining Religion (Mark #9)

Ever thought you knew the words to a song, but it turns out you were singing it all wrong? Some of the Jewish leaders of Jesus’ day thought they knew how to do thing likes fasting and observing the Sabbath, but turns out they were off the mark.

In this week’s message, Pastor Erin Bird walks us through Mark 2:18–3:6 showing how we are much like the ancient Jewish leaders who were off in their understanding of religion and obeying God. So if you have a desire to have a close relationship with God that isn’t a burden to your soul, listen in.

Continue with Jesus (Following Jesus #2)

It is very natural for humans to think that in order to achieve a certain level of holiness, they have to “earn” it. Whether it be through classes, practices, or upholding certain traditions, they believe they have to jump through certain hoops in order to be “saved” or to please God.

But as Erin Bird, teaching pastor for Riverwood, shows us from the book of Colossians, what we need isn’t to add classes or religious practices in order to make God happy – rather, we just need to continue with Jesus.

So no matter where you are at in your spiritual journey, listen in to learn how you can love like Jesus loved and live like Jesus lived.
