Lost: The Lost Intention Of The Parable
Luke 15 is best known for the parable of the Prodigal Son. However, the father in the story had two sons. The older son represented the Pharisees who thought highly of themselves because they were outwardly obedient. It's easy for us, as believers, to have the same attitude of self-righteousness. God desires that our hearts be changed, and that our obedience would reflect a deep love for Him. We could never earn God's amazing grace. 
Scripture: Luke 15:25-32

    Lost: To The Far Country And Back
    In one of the most famous parables in the Bible, Jesus tells of a Father who had two lost sons. One son took his inheritance and wasted it all on reckless living. As we look more closely into this story, we see how serious the son's sin was and how much greater his Father loved him. Anytime a person turns from their sin and runs to Jesus is a cause for great celebration.
    Scripture: Luke 15:11-24

    God’s Amazing Grace Pt. 2
    As Paul continued explaining the greatness of God's grace, he wrote about the incredible gift of faith that God gives us to be able to receive His grace. Both grace and the faith to believe in Jesus are gifts from God. God’s amazing grace leads to life transformation for the glory of God and good of others. May we shine in such a way that others see the good work of God in us and glorify Him.
    Scripture: Ephesians 2:7-10

    God’s Amazing Grace Pt.1
    In Ephesians 2, Paul explains that before salvation, we are all dead in our sin. God’s amazing grace makes it possible for the utterly and totally lost to experience life to its fullest in Christ. God's grace delivers us from sin’s slavery, and God’s amazing grace helps us experience His great love. 
    Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-6

    A Love That God Hates
    In I John 2, John warns the believer in Jesus against loving the world. Loving the world is rebellion against God, incompatible with loving God, and it focuses our attention on the temporary instead of the eternal. We live in the world, but the world must not live in us. We can resist the world’s temptation of focusing on the temporary by focusing on the eternal One, Jesus Christ.
    Scripture: I John 2:15-17
  • Aug 7, 2017Loving God
    Aug 7, 2017
    Loving God
    When Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees about the greatest commandment, Jesus' response was twofold. First, He quoted from Deuteronomy and told them to love God with their entire being. He then instructed them from Leviticus to love their neighbors as themselves. Loving God is the highest objective of every true follower of Jesus. Loving God is demanding and requires us to love others as well. When we love God and love others, we are able to live in a way that glorifies God.
    Scripture: Matthew 22:34-40

    The Problem Of Evil Pt.2
    Series: WHY
    As we continue to better understand the problem of evil, we are reminded that God is in control over all things. He allows, even wills evil and suffering to exist for the greatest and highest good of His glory. When you are a recipient of evil or suffering trust God not your circumstances. May we also learn to be better equipped to respond to people's hurts, even if the best thing we could do is be a comforting presence rather than trying to say anything. 
    Scripture: Job 1-2:10

    The Problem Of Evil Pt.1
    Series: WHY
    Christians are often questioned about evil and suffering in the world. Many people struggle to believe that God is who the Bible says He is because evil exists. In the first part of this series, we looked through various Scriptures and dealt with some logical arguments defending the biblical God. May we all be bold in our witness and know that God is all-powerful, all-good, and always present  even though evil exists in this world.

    The Unrivaled King
    In Psalm 2, we see that Jesus Christ is God's anointed King whose sovereignty is unrivaled. Though David was writing this Psalm out of his own experiences with persecution, we can clearly see that He was guided by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of things which would ultimately fulfilled by Jesus. The New Testament confirms that this passage pointed to a greater King, Jesus, and that people today can turn from their rebellion and trust Jesus as their King and Savior.
    Scripture: Psalm 2

    Why Postmodernism Is Wrong Pt.2
    Series: WHY
    Understanding the claims of Postmodernism, and knowing how to refute it, equips Christians to better advance the kingdom of Christ in a culture saturated with a postmodern worldview. Postmodernism is self-defeating and fails to show that truth does not correspond to reality. Truth is objective and we can know the Truth in the person of Jesus and the Bible.
    Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:1-2

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.
