This is How You Should Live
Oswald Chambers has this to say about Jesus and The Sermon on the Mount. Beware of thinking of our Lord as only a teacher. If Jesus Christ is only a teacher, then all He can do is frustrate me by setting a standard before me I cannot attain. What is the point of presenting me with such a lofty ideal…
In our modern society, we can be quick to give up. Jesus calls us to be dependent on our Heavenly Father, and to keep asking, seeking, and knocking. Do you believe that God is good? Do you believe that good things come from God?

God partners with His children, with those people who actively trust Him, working in the world in various ways. We have the privilege of asking God to work for those around us and of obeying Him in being the answer to many of those prayers. Jesus is LORD over all, even the demons must obey His commands and none are able to overcome His strength. We are always in an evil generation; we frequently demand signs of Jesus, trying to force Him to prove Himself. His death, burial, and resurrection give witness to His power and truth and provide for us hope that lasts beyond our present circumstances. He isn't looking for pretenders; He wants genuine followers. Shared by Jason Stuart Percy on Sunday, July 11, 2021 at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL.

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.
“Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Who among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for…

Open in prayer. “Never Give In” Winston Churchill said those famous words to as a part of a larger speech to his alma mater in 1941. He had persistently been communicating to his nation and surrounding nations that Hitler was not to be trusted. Now that the world was at war, he urged the students in…
Luke 18:1–8 (NIV84) 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up . 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice…
Renewing Your Mind
7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him,…
[Sermon on the Mount] Living the New Life!
Christopher Campbell • Sermon • • 32 views
Sunday, February 28, 2021. Matthew 7:1-12 | “His Kingdom and Righteousness" - Part 2. Righteousness is a relational word and a priority that followers of Jesus actively seek. Jesus warns against an improper form of judgment. Charitable judgement represents righteousness informed by love. Condemning judgment represents righteousness ruined by hypocrisy. Our source of Kingdom righteousness is with the Father, of whom we ask, seek and knock for it.
