Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Dear Via Family,
In today’s consumer driven approach to church, many look for, and expect, a church to meet their needs and desires, and to do it well. Via certainly desires to serve those inside and outside our walls. As a community of faith, however, we must look to the Scriptures for our direction. What are the things that should mark us? What are the characteristics of a community with whom God is pleased?
Jesus actually laid out a compelling teaching that is meant to shape us, examine us, convict us, and change us by the Holy Spirit. How can we better reflect Jesus? How we operate should display how the Gospel has radically transformed us.
Jesus’ new and better law, given to us in Matthew 5:1-12 will be our focus through the summer. Our series is called Kingdom People. I, along with all of our pastors, are praying that God will work in our hearts as a congregation and lead us to repentance of sin and faith in Jesus. Let’s allow this series to be a mirror to who we are individually and as a community of faith (James 1:22-25).
