Here at Living Waters Rogue Valley, we answer the question, “What do YOU look like fully alive in Jesus?” We have a mission to break people free from religious bondage and invite them into who the Father intended them to be when He created them—that they could carry and exhibit a life fully reconciled to God through Christ.
Rhythms of Identity - Ryan Rhoden
In order for us to walk in our God given identity, we must FIRST have an understanding of who He is. Identity is the EXPRESSION of our INTIMACY with God, and the revelation we carry of who He is.
Our beginning point is a REVELATION of God and INVITING HIM into our reality - messy, broken, whatever - And discovering a God of LOVE.
Rhythms of Intimacy - Ryan Rhoden
When intimacy is the root, identity becomes the visible and internal structure of your life. A tree that grows from healthy roots. Who you believe you are will determine how you think about yourself and consequently, how you interact with others. You may struggle to take hold of the reality of being made perfectly new, entirely whole, completely righteous and lacking nothing through Jesus. We pray that struggle ends now! God desires that you would grow to full stature and maturity in your identity, knowing and living out who and Whose you are.
Rhythms of Generosity - Ryan Rhoden
Our (broken) idea of prosperity is the accumulation of things, and a “better” life. Biblical prosperity that the life of Jesus brings us into is to prosper in the fruit of the Spirit.
"This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." - Jesus (John 15)
To prosper is to grow HEALTHIER (mind, emotions, spirit, body) BY ENCOUNTERING and BECOMING more like Jesus, not to grow a larger bank account.
Kingdom finances isn’t about ACCUMULATION, it’s about APPROPRIATION of RESOURCES and STEWARDSHIP!
God with Us in the Mundane and the Ordinary - Andy Southmayd
THIS ADVENT SEASON IS A REMINDER that through all the repetition of life, the repeated mistakes, the habits of brokenness, the high places, the thin places - Jesus is the GOD who is continually coming towards us.
He has promised the proximity of His presence AND He will not control us, instead He has sent the advocate to help lead us into daily practices that help us navigate all the channels of life, the high and lows, even the mundane and ordinary.
God with Us - Our Hope and our Redemption - Drew Berryessa
In the midst of the Christmas Season where seems to be a commingling of both joy and grief, we are reminded that God alone is our hope and our redemption. Let's settle that God is always working in our behalf and that there is not a detail that He is not mindful of and orchestrating for our redemption.
God With Us - Our Foundation in the Storm - Ryan Rhoden
Throughout Scripture, Jesus is revealed as the promised One who would rescue and redeem humanity - our past, present, and future! This Christmas, we will be celebrating, remembering, and inviting Jesus to be revealed in and through our lives and circumstances as the true God who is WITH US in everything we are walking through this season.
