Be careful and don’t gripe at God about the confusing times. God alone saves. Your mouth cannot save you. Money cannot save you. God alone provides. Therefore, fear God, and be thankful for the life He has given you.
Pastor Jon Couch • Hill City Church • Sermon • • 204 views • 53:48
1. What I allow into my heart, is what my mouth will be filled with. (Luke 6:43-45), (Isaiah 29:13), (Proverbs 27:19) Don't let your heart be filled with these toxins that have developed over the centuries in this broken world. 2. What we praise, is what we worship, and what we worship is what we praise. Let everything that leaves our breath be of praise. The flesh craves TO BE praised, not TO praise. Jeremiah 17:14, Deuteronomy 10:21 3. God's glory must dominate our lives all the day We have an ever-changing culture, but a never-changing message. Pslam 115:1, 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, Romans 8:18 Pslam 71:8 - 1. Not an easy thing to live out (our hearts and mouths are tainted by sin and Satan) - 2. Your pain has a purpose (your pain is temporary, God is sovereign and his ways are better) - 3. God is passionate about his praise and his glory (God will pursue his glory even if our own lives will be affected by it, Isaiah 42:8)

Why does God bring thunderclouds and disasters when we want green pastures and still waters? Bit by bit we find behind the clouds, the Father's feet; behind the lightning, an abiding day that has no night; behind the thunder, "a still, small voice" that comforts with a comfort that is unspeakable. --Oswald…

The way of Jesus' Kingdom is the way of authentic love pursuing God's pleasure and God's will. We ought to be authentic in our lives seeking to please God rather than men. Doing good things to be seen by people will result in failing to receive reward in the Kingdom of Heaven. Whether giving to the poor, praying, or fasting, let it be done in secret with no show. Let us not seek to manipulate others with our public demonstrations of 'good will'. Frequently, we are guilty of using the poverty of others for our own benefit. This should not be so. LORD, help us to be of no reputation, to take on ourselves the form of a slave, a servant; to do what is right and good and true and just, when no one sees. Even pursuing ways to do good with no one seeing. Because You see. And You are enough. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, July 21, 2019.

Covid is still present though we all thought that it would have passed by now. The country being in turmoil with riots still happening…
It seems timely to consider a week after Easter that Christ shared with his disciples an important task following his resurrection. Before his ascension, he calls them to follow his example here on earth and to bear witness of him to everyone. Over this last month we’ve observed five portraits of our Risen Lord. Join us as we consider a sixth and final one, focusing our minds on these last and crucial imperatives of our life’s sole Master and the Church’s one Head and Chief Shepherd.
"Divine sovereignty means that God is God in fact , as well as in name, that He is on the Throne of the universe, directing all things, working all things 'after the counsel of His own will'...unrivaled in majesty, unlimited in power...: Arthur Pink, Attributes, 32.33
