The passage calls for us to obedience and spiritual purity because God is Holy (pure). In our former lives we were controlled in ignorance by the passions of the flesh (sinful desire). However, because of the grace of Christ we should obey God. This should be accomplished by prepairing ourselves to obey, focusing on the Hope of our future grace (glorification), and by conforming ourselves to God's purity.

God, Creator of All, designed the marriage of a man to a woman for both their lifetimes to reveal His glory and character and to establish order in human society beginning with the home, the smallest unit of natural human governance. Our desparately wicked hearts draw us away from God at heartbreaking speed and in tragic realities with severe consequences personally and in our society. God rescues sinners when they trust Him, believing that Jesus died for their sin, that He was buried, and that He was raised from the dead and is alive now both receiving and coming to live in those who've laid their hope, their confidence in Him rather than in themselves. Now, having been brought into His Kingdom by faith, He sets before us a new way to live, the way of His Kingdom and He is alive with us and in us to help us to walk in His Way! Where sin abounds... grace abounds so much more! Take joy in the God who saves sinners like you and I! Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, June 30, 2019.

Romans 5:1-2 Introduction At the mission service we had in church last Sunday, one of the presenters who had spent some time in a third world country commented, “I realized how privileged I have been.” There are a lot of ways in which that person could have meant that. They could have meant it in terms…

Why is it that in the midst of our abundance we find it easier to see what we lack rather than we should be grateful for? Maybe that's an extreme statement but doesn't it seem that we spend more time thinking I could really be happy if _________ ? Doesn't it make us feel a little "cheated" when other…

What God Has Provided 11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from…

Jesus heals our sicknesses. Not always how we want, or when we want. Everyone that was healed by Jesus while He was on Earth still died. Those who trust Him are healed eternally and are in His presence awaiting the resurrection. Jesus demonstrated to Israel that He was truly the promised Messiah, God with Us, come to remove the curse upon creation after Adam's sin. Jesus did many great miracles and He still does. Not the least of which, He was raised from the dead and is, therefore, alive now. He has promised to raise everyone who lives and believes in Him. We have truly entered and enjoy His Kingdom knowing freedom from the fear of death! He Himself took our infirmities. Rejoice, we'll live free of sicknesses in the end.

Theme: Jonah prays to God from inside the fish. His prayer gives us a guide for how to practice every day confession, how to repent and how to talk to God in the dark. God hears us no matter how deep we go into the dark seas. Jonah points us to Jesus, the greater Jonah; he shows us that God’s mercy is always deeper so that we never have to go there. We have a new life because Jesus gave his own life for us.

Does God give you more than you can handle? Where is this saying in the Bible? What does God really say about what is allowed in our lives during tempations and trials? Context is extremely important when reading and understanding God's Word. Pastor Clay helps us to understand the implications of us "handling" life in our strength versus living in God's grace when we experience burdens more than we can handle.

Jesus is alive from the dead and all people everywhere are to repent and believe the good news that He died for our sins, He was buried, and has been raised from the dead never to die again. Jesus is the King of the Universe and will reign until all enemies are put under His feet and the last enemy is death. Let him who has ears to hear, hear what the Spirit says to the Church.
