Jesus makes the unclean clean because he is willing, he is able, and he is self-sacrificing. Jesus makes the unholy holy because that's what he came to do, he's powerful enough to do it, and he's willing to pay the price.

Ephesians 3:20 says that God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all we can ask or imagine. The story of John the Baptist's father Zecheriah is a perfect example of this fact of God at work.
Outcasts - Luke: a Gospel for the Rejected
In what is known as the Sermon on the Plain, Jesus teaches His disciples how to live life with a mercy that multiplies. God's mercy instructs the way we judge, lead, correct, and inspect others as we keep the mercy we've received at the fore of all we do towards others.

Malachi 4. Can we turn, once again, to the book of Malachi? [P] Those of you who were here last time I spoke, if you are astute, may have noticed that I skipped over a verse.

Everyone messes up. We have a choice when people mess up. We can ignore the mess, we can take advantage of them in their mess, or we can show love and kindness to them in their mess. How we chose to respond to their mess says a lot about who we are and our walk with God. How we chose to respond affects more than just us, it affects the generations that come after us.

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.

Are there anyone in here that loves movies. I’m sort of a move buff. In our home we have a dedicated movie room. Unfortunately things have changed. I’ve more or less given up on movies. Movies have gotten terrible over the past few years, but my two favorite ones are the Dark Knight version of Batman…
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.
Parables: The King & His Hidden Treasure
Theme: The parable of the good Samaritan. To inherit eternal life we have to consistently practice unqualified love for God and our neighbors around us. We have to humble ourselves to see the love that God has offered to us in the Samaritan who loved us first when we didn’t know him. And once we received the love that Jesus has offered, we become the hands, the feet and the healing of the Lord Jesus Christ offering his love and surprising many along the way.
Theme: Jonah – a man who could not love others who were not like him. How and why do you love others who are not like us? No matter what nation anybody comes from, other people are humanity and they are made in the image of God. It is God’s heartbeat that all of humanity will reach repentance. We love others by preaching repentance, which requires giving mercy, carrying for others and serving others.
