Compassion: A Call To Action

Show-Mercy-Worship-BackgrouWhen God burdened my heart with the vision for Revive Outreach Church, He placed a single word into my spirit; compassion.  Compassion is something we often talk about, but do we truly understand what it means?  Matthew chapter nine gives us a glimpse of the true meaning of compassion as demonstrated by Jesus.

Matthew 9:35, 36 – Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.  But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

When Jesus saw the people, He saw them as lost, scatted, and without any hope of salvation.  As a result, He had compassion for them.  The Greek word translated compassion in these verses is not simply a feeling of pity, but it was a call to action.  Jesus wanted to help them and help them He did.  He gave His life freely for them and provided the hope they so desperately needed through His sacrifice.


We Need Your Help!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we need your help!

ROC is very active in our community ministering to students, families, and seniors. We partner with local homeless ministries to provide emergency first aid kits and food kits. By God’s grace, we’ve raised nearly $10,000 for World Vision in the last two years and packed 280 shoe boxes for operation Christmas Child.

The good news is we have outgrown the space we currently utilize; especially our student ministry. And as many of you are aware, we are in the process of renovating 5,000 sqft of space as a home for our church. It is our desire to remain debt free so that we can continue to minister through compassion, service, and evangelism.


Living a Life of Integrity!

In this series, we look at the life of Daniel and how he reflected integrity in every aspect of daily living. He refused to compromise his relationship with God for personal gain or to save himself from certain death. We should all strive to honor God with a life of integrity, but we must first understand what integrity is, its costs, and how it is rewarded by God. Please join us on this journey through the life of Daniel.

Repentance: Why?

Adam and Eve were God’s very own creation. He created them in His image and as a result made them volitional; meaning He gave them the ability to make choices and then to act upon those choices. He gave them everything that they needed to live in splendor and happiness.

Imagine, they had access to the world’s largest produce section. Watermelon, apples, oranges, mango, strawberries, blue berries, corn, potatoes, green beans; you get the point. Yet there was one fruit they were forbidden to touch. The fruit of the tree of knowledge.


The Authority and Inspiration of Scripture

There are three foundational elements that must be understood when looking at the authority and inspiration of scripture. They are Revelation, Inspiration, and Illumination.

To keep it simple think of these elements in this way:

A truth that was not known before.
The method by which Revelation is communicated to man.
The method by which man understands Revelation.
