14 Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him. From an article in PsychCentral, I found this…

Behind the Story: God at work in a broken world
In Judges 6-9 we read the account of Gideon. One of the most famous scenes from this account is Gideon's fleece as he sought reassurance from God. But is this really something we should be emulating, or is their something rotten underneath the cute story? Join us as we explore the ancient Israelite judge, Gideon.

This morning we delve into a piece of Jesus’ Passion Narrative that does not normally get much attention. We typically read the Passion story all as one story on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, or most often on Good Friday. I think part of the reason that we gloss over this story is that we do not want…
Another Very Bad Day We are taking a look through the book of Job. It is going to be a bit dark and troublesome for a while.

We are in a spiritual war! How do we recognize the enemy? What is the definition of a traitor? Do we commit spiritual treason?

Jesus washed the disciples feet and said it was an example to them. They were to repeat this type of behavior. He was their Master and Teacher and He was washing their feet. We are asked to esteem others better than ourselves. We who follow Jesus have been shown that our lives are secure in Him and we are, therefore, free to love anyone right now. Anyone. Even our enemy. We are asked by our Messiah to look out not only for our interests but for the interests of others. Jesus enables us to die to ourselves and to live lives beneficial for others. This would certainly be reflected in our marriages, our family relationships, our jobs, our churches, and anywhere else we might find ourselves. Jesus gives us a new commanment, we are to love each other, as His disciples, in the same way that He has loved us. These thoughts were shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, February 13, 2022.

Jesus is not surprised as we are. His humble obedience to the Father, even to the point of death, becomes for us a guiding principle as we follow Jesus. We often fail. He knows. He knew from the beginning. Still He has committed Himself to us His disciples. We have been left with two wonderful traditions by which we proclaim the good news of Jesus' Kingdom. The church of Jesus has continued in these two practices since her beginning and shall until our King returns. Make no mistake, it may look like He is failing at times. He is not. His Kingdom comes. Let us be those who watch and wait and learn to trust Him. These thoughts were shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, October 17, 2021.

Judas Iscariot is a thought provoking story. First a cute little story: Man jumps overboard on a cruise — “Who pushed me”? We often give Judas a break, or some grace, because we think he was pushed into betraying Jesus. But what we will see today is that what Judas did was just flat wrong. He was a follower—…
