Life Together: An Honest Community

Dear Redemption City Family,

What is the single most important component of any healthy relationship?

Maybe your initial answer to this question is something like love, trust, or selflessness. Let me suggest an answer that is even deeper and more foundational: truth. Relationships simply cannot exist without honesty.  

The same concept goes for the church. Relationships inside the church simply cannot exist without honesty. Authentic community means being known "as we really are".  Yet, most of us are worried that others would not accept us or like us if they really knew us, so instead of letting our true selves be known, we hide behind a false self.  

Tomorrow we’ll explore how the good news of the gospel frees us from slavery to the approval or disapproval of others. When we are confident in our identity in Christ, we are free to be known as we really are and to love others as they really are.  

I hope you’ll join us.  Bring a friend!

Christ is All, 
Pastor Juan
