20/20 VISION: What are Your Eyes Fixed Upon? 2 Chronicles 20:1-30 Have you ever had a problem finding something? Maybe it’s your wallet or your keys. Perhaps you can’t remember where you last put them or even worse where someone moved them to … what I find even more frustrating is not being able to see…

Do Not Pass Me By Mark 6:45-51 & Matthew 14:22-33 Let’s set the scene. Three weeks ago, we looked at an amazing event in the lives of Jesus and the disciples. They were on a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee (Mark 4:35-41). Jesus was sleeping in the back of the boat when a fierce storm comes down on…
Walking in Wisdom: True Faith That Works
Pastor Cedar Bibiolata • NorthsideHBC • Sermon • • 187 views • 40:19
Review: God knows our inadequacies; therefore, we are exhorted to ask NOT for a solution to our problems, NOT for the removal of trials, BUT to ask for wisdom IN the midst of trials. This emphasizes our need to be dependent upon God on a moment to moment basis, and the provision of wisdom by our God…
“Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Who among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for…

We excercise judgement about many things every day. Jesus asks us to be wise in judgement and not to simply judge the outside or cursory things. We need wisdom and we need to be asking, seeking, and knocking that we might know how to treat others the way we want to be treated. It is possible to be decieved and so good judgement is of vital importance seeing that Jesus' way is narrow and there are few who find it. LORD, give us wisdom. Help us to be merciful to others. Help us to love each other enough to hold each other accountable with mercy and grace and love. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, August 5, 2019.

Series on Elijah and Elisha
Paul Hawkins • Sermon • • 85 views
Elijah and Elisha 17. Proceeding with our looking at the prophets Elijah and Elisha; can we please turn to 2 Kings 4 ? [P] Recall that Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah; that makes Elisha, who follows after him, a picture of Jesus: “Elisha” = God saves; “Jesus” = יהוה saves. I was talking to…
The Jesus Questions
There are moments in our walk with Jesus, where his love pushes back on our posturing. His love compels us to see the sins of others in light of our own- to use a measure that we want God to measure us with. Jesus would teach and embody the kingdom concept that grace comes first, then repentance.
This is How You Should Live
Oswald Chambers has this to say about Jesus and The Sermon on the Mount. Beware of thinking of our Lord as only a teacher. If Jesus Christ is only a teacher, then all He can do is frustrate me by setting a standard before me I cannot attain. What is the point of presenting me with such a lofty ideal…
Dark Clouds Deep Mercy
Trust is only proven in suffering. To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 1 How long, O Lord ? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider…

What do you want … really? Matthew 20:29-34 What do you want … I mean really? If you could have anything in the world, what is it that you would really like? It’s kind of funny to ask this question to people. Aly and I went out with a video camera this week and asked several people this question. Their…
The Jesus Questions
This week, Pastor Nick opens up the book of Mark to talk about a question Jesus made about the mindset of a servant. While many of us get caught up in the depravity of human aspirations so much so that we silence and consign our needs and true desires to being swept under the proverbial rug, Jesus seems to have no problems talking about them out and in the open.

This Sunday is called “Rogate”, which means, “Ask.” Historically, this Sunday and the days following were known as Rogation days, days marked by prayer and supplication. Now, you won’t find the word “prayer” anywhere in our Gospel text. But in verse 24, Jesus says, “Ask, and you will receive” ( Jn 16:24…
[Sermon on the Mount] Living the New Life!
Christopher Campbell • Sermon • • 23 views
Sunday, February 28, 2021. Matthew 7:1-12 | “His Kingdom and Righteousness" - Part 2. Righteousness is a relational word and a priority that followers of Jesus actively seek. Jesus warns against an improper form of judgment. Charitable judgement represents righteousness informed by love. Condemning judgment represents righteousness ruined by hypocrisy. Our source of Kingdom righteousness is with the Father, of whom we ask, seek and knock for it.

Life can be full of problems and burdens that we must endure. We are also asked to carry the burdens of others in the midst of our own. How can we truly bear the burdens that are thrown at us. Let’s look at that subject today.
Guilty How many of have regretted episodes in our lives and wished that we could go back and change them. We play the scenarios over and over in our minds. We may be having to deal with the consequences of our actions, or we maybe having to figure out how to repair the damage that we have created. How…
Biblical Teaching on Prayer
Introduction: What are you confident about? Things that seem impossible: tight rope walking between skyscrapers, acrobatics, climbing a mountain without a rope. What can we confidently ask in prayer? What is possible in prayer? What can I ask and expect to receive it. What is our intent? 1. We want to…
