We live in a world that is easily overcome by fear. And as some of you have no doubt observed recently in our country that fear can lead to panic and hysteria. And it can cause us to do crazy things- like depleting the world’s supply of toilet paper. Why is that? Why is fear so powerful? 14 Since therefore…

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.
How is it possible for someone to have hope, and not just hope- living hope, as they are struggling through various trials?

Jesus asks everything from those who follow Him. He will be second to none and nothing in the life of His disciples. Only He has the right to claim this kind of ownership of us since He created us, sustains us, keeps us alive, orchestrates our lives in the order in which we find them, and He knows the beginning from the end. God is supreme and Sovereign and there is no other being like Him. Jesus demonstrates to us the power and order and control of our God. We who follow Him lay down everything for Him. There is no other option for us for everything else is covetousness and idolatry. Jesus rescues us and brings us into his Kingdom where we find we needed no other things besides Him anyhow. He is present in our storms, able to calm when He is ready. He is able to heal and even the demonic forces know who He is and are under His authority as they, too, are something He created. He created them good, they turned away from Him, but they are no match for Him. That is sure. Be not afraid!

Jesus is the Good Shepherd of those in His Kingdom. He ensures we have all we need, every moment, to do and be and think and say what He wants. He is the ruler of all the Earth and there is nothing that is hard for Him. He is able to help any who come to Him. Jesus rescues sinners. Many believe they have established there own righteousness but those who know they are sick are readily rescued by the Good Shepherd, Jesus. He justifies the ungodly. While he is able to and does variously heal physical illness or touble, we look forward to the fullness of His Kingdom, when all sorrow, sickness, death, and pain will pass away and we will be made new! Isn't He wonderful!??!!!?!?!!

Often, even as followers of Jesus, we find our immediate response regarding behavioral psychological issues to be more in line with an unbelieving, materialistic, naturalistic worldview. This, in spite of the fact that Jesus regularly dealt with, talked about, and affirmed the reality of the meta-physical, the unseen spiritual world in which we live. At the very least, we should pause and pray, consider, and seek the LORD in the situations in which we find ourselves in relation to the people around us in regard to both their and our behavior. Maybe there's more to humans that random, electrical impulses, synapses, and chemicals. Where do we draw the line anyhow? And who gets to decide where that line even is? God has made a world full of powerful elements. Medicine can be good. We ought to trust in God and be wise. We are to live by faith.

Get out of your graveclothes! (insert slide/picture, already saved: graveclothes) Who we are is not who we were, but sometimes we have to look at who we were so we can know who we are today. We, like Lazarus, need to get out of our graveclothes (Jn11:43-44) 43 When He had said these things, He cried…

Jesus gave His life as a ransom for ours. He died for our sins. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him. He laid down His life demonstrating the love of God for sinners. Anyone may be rescued from sin, death, hell, judgment, by trusting in Jesus. He, alone, is our hope for redemption. We have no other Savior. He rescues everyone who trusts Him. Let us be a people firmly planted on the solid ground that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and has been raised from the dead. He is, therefore, alive now, receiving all those who place their trust in Him. Shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge Christian Fellowship Tallahassee on Sunday, January 12, 2020.
