Bulletin Sept 24, 2023

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!

Memory Verse
“Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle” (2 Thess 2:15).

Life Lessons
Regarding 2 Thess. 2:15, Dr. Tony Evans writes, “This is Paul’s theme: Stand firm. You are to be like a member of the Queen’s Guard in England—no matter what happens around you, you stand firm. While everybody else is waffling and buying into different worldviews, you hold onto the truth of Scripture. Too
many are fast-food Christians or spiritual hitchhikers, desiring convenience and a free ride. But, the Christian life is based on long-term perseverance. If you only follow Christ when he gives you good things, and not when you struggle, then you’re not following Christ at all. Paul told the Thessalonians to hold to the traditions taught by apostolic authority, by the Word of God.”
