We Are Rise

Rise is a church that gathers Sunday nights at 4pm & 6pm in Gresham, Oregon to worship God and grow in God's word. During the week we meet in homes to encourage one another and provide a welcoming place to share our real lives. A church is not a building, a mission statement or way of believing. A Church is a people of Jesus. We are the Church. #wearerise

Current Series - This Is Jesus

As Jesus followers, we must follow His Way, and spiritual disciplines allow us to train in the ways of Jesus. Throughout the summer, we will open the Gospels looking at the Way of our King as we follow His example, putting each spiritual discipline into practice. This is Jesus.

In his book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, Donald S. Whitney writes, "At the heart of a disciplined spiritual life is the disciplined use of time. To be like Jesus, we must see the use of our time as a spiritual discipline." . Today, spend some time in prayer asking the Lord if there is a habit or way you spend your time that does not serve you or your relationship with Him. Then, just for this week, abstain. . Don't seek to replace the practice with something else. Just create some margin in your days, trusting the Lord to fill as He sees fit. . As always, we encourage you to download our app so you can follow along with the above content from our 'Spiritual Disciplines Guide'. πŸ“²Such a great opportunity to grow alongside of one another and become more like Jesus together. πŸ‘†πŸΎ . #wearerise

"Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

When we are experiencing longing for something we are fasting from, we use the physical desire as reminder to direct our attention to Jesus. . Today, when you experience the pangs of fasting, use it as a reminder to pray for others. Perhaps pray for an ongoing need in our community, or maybe for the health of a loved one. πŸ™πŸ½ . This is where the disciplines of prayer and fasting collide to strengthen each other. . ⬆️The above content is an excerpt from our 'Spiritual Disciplines Guide'.
