A Note from Pastor Raul

Mountains-Cross-282107_305x170A Note to The Refuge from Pastor Raul

First of all, I wanted to thank everyone that made this past Sunday special for the mom’s at The Refuge! It was great to see many people brought to church because it was Mother’s Day which served as a great opportunity to hear the Gospel.

Remember, from the message:

#1 – Our Humanity is wrapped up with the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus and although we are human we can trust God to accomplish the IMPOSSIBLE. (Luke 1:37)

#2 – Our will should be in HUMBLE SUBMISSION to the AUTHORITY of God’s WORD. Our response should be very much like Mary’s, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)

#3 – BELIEVE and be Blessed – If what we believe results in how we behave then how we behave should illustrate what we believe. Does HOW we live illustrate what we SAY we believe? Our life should totally reflect Jesus. (Hebrews 11:6)

#4 – The SON of God Changed the SERVANT of God Forever – I hope Jesus has changed YOUR life forever. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I hope that resonates profoundly within you!

As far as THIS COMING SUNDAY is concerned, we will continue in our FACE DOWN Message SERIES on Worship. We’ll hear the answer to two more questions: 1) WHO are we to Worship (I know it’s obvious, but you’d be surprised who it is that many are worshiping), and 2) What can HINDER our worship of the ONE TRUE GOD.

Our GIFT SERIES CLASS continues this Sunday, which is our basics-of-the-faith class. This is for everyone who have not been through one of these classes, or a new Christian or someone who just wants a refresher in our faith’s foundational elements.

Lord Bless You REFUGE…
