The Fulcrum of Time
Human government was first instituted by God in Genesis 9:6 . Coming out of the Ark, God instructed Noah that humans were given authority to carry out His purpose among all humans. However, when leaders serve themselves or only part of their constituents, Politics goes bad. Peer pressure is not only…
From the Garden to Glory
Not Much About Palm Sunday Today That’s because it puts things out of sequence for the preaching points I have been sharing with you from the Gospel of John since February 13. I began at the end of the Seder meal that was Jesus’ last supper. To start, we looked at the new commandment that Jesus gave…

Reading: Jn 18.36-40 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say…
How I Met Jesus
There are some many voices in our world today. Every voice carries with it a different opinion or belief. It's hard to know which voice holds the truth. Today, as we unpack the conversation between Jesus and Pontius Pilate, we find out that Christ alone holds the voice of truth.

Jesus gave His life as a ransom for ours. He died for our sins. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him. He laid down His life demonstrating the love of God for sinners. Anyone may be rescued from sin, death, hell, judgment, by trusting in Jesus. He, alone, is our hope for redemption. We have no other Savior. He rescues everyone who trusts Him. Let us be a people firmly planted on the solid ground that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and has been raised from the dead. He is, therefore, alive now, receiving all those who place their trust in Him. Shared by Jason Stuart Percy at Refuge Christian Fellowship Tallahassee on Sunday, January 12, 2020.

What comes to mind when we think of Christmas in 21st century America? Santa. The manger. Baby Jesus. Mary. Joseph. The wise men. Angels. Shepherds. Etc. But we know that the Christmas story was not "made in America." The setting was about 2,000 years ago in Israel. Roman occupied territory. Israel was looking for "Christmas": God's gift to set them free from Roman oppression. A Messiah. What does Scripture say about the Messiah? What exactly was his mission, both regarding Israel and the rest of the world? Come with the Grace United crew as we talk about God's gift embodied in Messiah.

Those who have a working knowledge of the Old Testament know that "priests" and "prophets" are all over the pages! Priests handle the holy things of God, and prophets speak to others in the name of God. But it may come as a surprise that the Bible tells us that priests and prophets appear in the New Testament as well. In addition, there are priests and prophets the church of Jesus Christ. Today.

Join the Grace United crew as we discover amazing things regarding priests and prophets in the Old Testament, and in the church of Jesus Christ as well.

John 18:36-38 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.” Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I…
Scripture Reading 1 Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate. 2 “Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate. “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied.…
Encounters with Jesus
Bex White • Sermon • • 2 views
The Setup It’s the early hours of the morning. The last supper, the first communion, was the night before. Jesus was betrayed, as He said He would be. Denied, as He said He would be. He has submitted His will completely to the will of the Father. He hasn’t slept. Arrested by Roman soldiers, He has had…
The Gospel of Luke 2
PRAY INTRO: Truth is not pliable. Truth is not simply relative to your perspective. Truth is truth. Truth is not something to be twisted for your own purposes. Similarly, justice is not merely a tool to be wielded in the hands of those in political power. Justice is a righteous judgment based on what…

Who is responsible for Jesus’ death? John Stott asks a similar question in his book The Cross of Christ, the second chapter titled “Why Did Christ Die?” In this message I follow Stott’s general outline. Who is responsible for Jesus’ death? Well, the answer will likely depend on who answers. For instance,…
Isaiah would depict in such a detailed way what our Savior would go through. The prophets would be looking ahead to a promised Messiah as they declared the Promised One… Tonight we remember. This is not a service of celebration, rather it is for contemplation, reflection, and remembering what our sin…
