The human condition is bleak. Though many attempt to trumpet the inherent goodness of humanity, the reality of our own relationships, and of the relationships of communities, cities, states, and nations, proves quite the opposite. All of the evil things of the world have flowed out of the hearts of humans. Cleaning up the outside of lives makes us only hypocrites, still in bondage the base desires of our bodies. Jesus' Kiingdom is about God's rule within the lives of those who trust Him. God comes to reside within us. He has promised to give us new lives, eternal life, and new hearts. Hearts of flesh rather than hardened hearts of stone. We ought to continue to pursue Him, to trust Him. Keep on praying, saints! He is able to open deaf ears and make the truth plain. Sometimes, the answer to physical problems may be something spiritual. Shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge Christian Fellowship Tallahassee on Sunday, March 8, 2020.

Closer: Pressing into Jesus
The Christian life is much like a marathon. We need to get rid of everything that holds us back from running the race effectively. We stay focused on the example of Jesus as we run the race.
Jesus is Greater (Book of Hebrews)
Having come through Hebrews chapter 11, the "Hall of Faith", it's good for us to take stock of who has the most influence over our lives. Biblical examples are important, but a living, breathing example is even better. And we certainly should not neglect the greatest example of all, Jesus Christ Himself. An expository sermon from Heb. 12:1-3; sermon begins at about 18:30.

We need to share with others how God has worked in our lives. Sometimes we have to be very patient so that we can tell people what God has done in our lives. God will remove all obstacles to Church growth, making way for us to share His Good News.
