The Rock House Church...Where Everyone Is Welcome

rock-house-shield

 

The Rock House is a non-denominational, bible-based minstry located in Linn Creek, MO. We reach out to the lost with the simplicity of the gospel every week.

We believe in challenging believers to conform to the likeness of Christ through the message and through the discipleship process that we offer. We are reminded that our faith should be evident in all we do, as reflected by our cross and shield. 

Our shield represents our faith in the finished work done by Christ on the cross (John 19:30).

The fishhook of our shield represents evangelism as communicated to his disciples by Christ (MK 1:17)

The tree with roots represents personal growth from discipleship (MT 28:18-19)

The hands represents acts of service to the body and the world (Eph 4:11-12)

The crowd of people represents fellowship of believers in and out of church services (Act 2:42)

 We are a church lead by plurality, 8 individuals including the pastor coming together to seek God and lead his flock.

We teach verse by verse through one book of the bible at a time. Keeping it in proper context and making it applicable for life today.

Today's Message

As we continue in 1 Corinthians 14, Paul is wrapping us his instruction to the Corinthian church on Agape love, and how it pertains to the gift of tongues.  We've seen the recurring notion that gifts are used for the common good, and NOT self gratification.  Agape love thinks of everyone but oneself, and how to edify the body and reach unbelievers.  Its with this in mind that Paul says in verse 20, "Brothers, stop thinking like children.  In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults."  We have to put the unbeliever and the new believer first in our mind in orderly worship to reach them, and be innocent to sin.  Most of us will not recieve the gift of tongues.  Despite what we sometimes are told, it's not the only sign of the Spirit.  As was discussed in chapter 12, we are all given different gifts by the same Spirit.  We should not only be satisfied with our gift, but walk in obedience that He knows what's best for His children.  When we extend God's Agape love, this is what comes out.  "Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers, not for unbelievers," is what verse 22 says.  "So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and some who do not understand or some unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind?"  Paul spelled it out for us very clearly what the proper use of all spiritual gifts look like.  "But if an unbeliever or someone who does not understand comes in while eerybody is prophesying, he will be convinced by all that he is a sinner and will be judged by all, and the secrets of his heart will be laid bare.  So he will fall down and worship God, exclaiming 'God is really among you!'"  If the lost come to our gathering and see the Lord being honored, they will be drawn.  If we compromise for the sake of self-gratification, we only push them away.  To summarize what the last few weeks have been about, Agape love comes from God, and we extend that to everyone.  When we submit ourselves to Agape love, our hearts will ache for the lost, and desire to see them come to the saving grace we all know so well!  We are to let our spiritual gifts, whatever they may be, be tools to show God's endless love to the world, and encourage them to come into eternity with Christ!  Chapter 14 continues with different topics next week, but God's truly unconditional love is the underlying theme of every passage of His word!
