Gratitude to God
Paul began his letter to the church at Colossae by thanking God for their faith and love. He recognized that God was the one who, by the finished work of Jesus Christ, saved them and has been at work within them. He also thanked God for the powerful presence of the gospel in their lives. As we dwell on all that God has done to accomplish our salvation, may we be full of thankfulness and gratitude to God, and let's share the Good News of Jesus with boldness. Scripture: Colossians 1:1-8

    Undeterred
    Series: UNBOUND
    At the end of Paul's life, many of his closest friends abandoned him. His only assurance was in the presence of God by his side. He trusted God to deal with those had wronged him and he forgave those who deserted him. In all of it, he had faith that the Lord Jesus Christ had faithfully sustained him. May we have that same confidence in God to work in our lives and keep us from stumbling, and may we keep running the race He has set before us.

    Carry On
    Series: UNBOUND
    Paul knew his life was coming to end, so he challenged Timothy to carry the torch and follow his example. During his life, Paul endured much hardship, but he persevered to the end. He held onto the hope of seeing Jesus, and that hope in the finished work of Christ on the cross helped sustain him throughout his ministry. This same challenge is given to all of us. May we fight the good fight and accomplish all the works Christ has for us, namely spreading the Good New of Jesus. Scripture: II Timothy 4:5-8

    The Preserving Power of Preaching
    Series: UNBOUND
    In Paul's final words to Timothy, he gave him a weighty command to preach the word at all times. During Timothy's day, many people sought out teachers that would tell them only what they wanted to hear, not what they needed to hear. We can easily fall into that trap and, as a result, wander off into false teachings. May we diligently seek Jesus through studying His Word, and may we be open and willing to accept correction knowing that it's making us more like Jesus.
    Scripture: II Timothy 4:1-4

    Sustaining Our Faith In Difficult Days
    Series: UNBOUND
    Contrary to the deceptive disciples Paul mentioned previously, Timothy exhibited the characteristics of a true follower of Jesus. He learn from Paul's life and grew in his faith as a result of Paul discipleship in Timothy's life. As believers, we need be in discipling relationships so that we can grow more in our walk with Christ. The times of suffering in Paul's life were used to help build his faith in Christ, and the more we immerse ourselves in God's Word, the more we can trust in God's character and His promises in difficult days.
    Scripture: II Timothy 3:10-17

    The Danger of Deceptive Disciples
    Series: UNBOUND
    As Paul continued in his letter to Timothy, he warned him to be aware of the deceptive disciples that had crept into the church. These people appeared to be godly men, but were practicing sin and leading people astray. Churches are often known for judging people outside of the church, but Scripture tells us to examine within the church and practice church discipline, when necessary. When we lovingly speak truth into each others' lives, we will help keep the church from being led away by false teachers. We must trust God's providence that even though people may try to lead others away from sound doctrine, that they will not have the final victory in light of eternity. God's purpose for the Church will come to pass.
    Scripture: II Timothy 3:1-9

    J E S U S : Son of God
    In John's Gospel, he wrote with the purpose that we would believe that Jesus is the Son of God, completely equal and fully God in every essence of God's being. He also desired that many people would believe and have life in Jesus' name. John began his Gospel with those themes in mind and started laying the foundation for the deity of Christ. Jesus Christ is the eternally existent Word of God that created the entire Universe. He created all physical life, sustains all physical life, and breathes spiritual life into lifeless souls and shines in darkened hearts. May we testify of the majesty of who Christ is and declare the Good News of all He's done.
    Scripture: John 1:1-8

    A Call To Holiness
    Series: UNBOUND
    If we desire to be useful for the Kingdom of God, we must be intentional to pursue holiness. Paul challenged Timothy to flee prideful, arrogant, youthful passions and make every effort to seek Jesus and imitate His life and love for others.   As we are made more like Jesus, we will be more effective in our witness. Let us also pray that God would lead many to repentance.
    Scripture: II Timothy 2:20-26

    The Fight Against False Teaching
    Series: UNBOUND
    While Timothy was ministering in Ephesus, he met opposition from false teachers from within the church. Paul instructed Timothy to help his congregation fight against false teaching by avoiding unhealthy debate, handling God's Word carefully, avoiding wordy speculation, and trusting God's firm foundation. May we do our best to work hard in studying God's Word that we may know God as He has revealed Himself in Scripture. Let us hold fast to right doctrine and not be swayed by false teachers, so we can effectively disciple others and point them closer to Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: II Timothy 2:14-19

    How To Endure
    Series: UNBOUND
    Paul knew that endurance could only be possible if believers would remember Jesus and rely on His Word. This leads us to respond to God's faithfulness. When see the greatness of God's faithfulness throughout His Word, we grow a deeper love for our Triune God. May we see Jesus' faithfulness and be encouraged to continue the works He's called us to accomplish for His Name's sake.
    Scripture: II Timothy 2:8-13

THE STORY
If you would like to know more about the story of redemption and what the gospel means, please view this short video.
 
Everything we do at Refuge Church is made possible by God’s infinite grace and the generous giving of God’s people.
 
From the start of humanity, God instituted giving as a means of worship. Abel brought the best of his produce as an offering to God. Abraham was willing to give his son as a demonstration of worship. The people of Israel gave their possessions to build the Tabernacle. Paul received financial gifts from various churches he ministered at to fund his pastoral and missional work.
 
When we give to God’s mission and the work of His people through His people, we are making an eternal investment that will not come back empty.
