The Refuge of Reeseville Church

Greetings to you, friends and neighbors in Reeseville and abroad, in the Name of Jesus. I pray that you all had Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I also pray for the Grace of God to be with you in this new year and that you would be blessed as you read this letter.

Because in todays’ world, with so many life threatening and life changing issues; sickness, money, depression, loneliness, accidents, and on and on, we need a blessing. Time flying by so fast we can’t keep up. Today’s world can be like a pressure cooker on each one of us. We are all stressed out and seeking a place of peace and rest. We need a Hope.

I imagine the life of Abraham, the father of the nation of Israel written about in the book of Genesis. He would ask his wife, Sarah, one day, “What are we going to do this month? Shear the sheep?”

Nowadays, we have so many things to do in a day, we can’t even get them all done. And if by chance we do, we are so exhausted by the end of the day, it all we can do to get up the next morning.

I am writing to remind us of something so powerful that lies in the heart of men and women today. It is not a chemical produced by the body, it’s not a rationalization or imagination created by our minds. But instead, something that has been placed inside of us by our creator Himself.  It’s called HOPE.

I’m not talking about hope in election results, I’m not talking about hope in the next movie releases or the latest in phone technology. I am talking about Whom the bible declares as “The Hope of Nations” Matthew 12:21 I am talking about the God of Hope. The only one who has the power and resources to fulfill all of His promises. The only one who has the authority to forgive our sins. The Hope of all the Nations.

There is a hope inside of all of us. What matters is on what we are hoping for and who we are placing that hope on.

I hope that there is more to this life than hatred, immorality and antichrist mentality. I hope there is an end. I hope that I don’t fail, that I am not a hypocrite, that I retain my integrity and reputation. That I don’t offend needlessly. I hope that I have been forgiven. And I especially Hope that I don’t ever lose the need to Hope.

And here comes Jesus, the Hope of the Nations. He is certainly my Hope. And as far as I am concerned, He is my only Hope.

The French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of the early 1800’s is credited as saying concerning Jesus, “I know men, and I tell you that Jesus is not a man.”

Jesus claimed and proved that He was not just a mere man, He was God in the flesh. He is the only One Who will never fail us. He said He’s coming back for us, He is going to come back for us. He died so that we could be forgiven, that means we are forgiven.  He promised us rest if we come to Him. Matthew 11:28, that means, if we go to Him, we will find rest. The Word of God holds thousands of promises waiting to be discovered by hearts that Hope in Him. Deliverance from addictions, fears, and depression. Promises of wisdom and guidance for your marriage and children. Forgiveness, Strength, Peace, Rest, and more and more.

[ One Solitary Life}

Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. Then for three years He was an wandering preacher. He never owned a home. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put His foot inside a big city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place He was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but Himself...

Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of human race.

All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built; all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life. [by Dr. James Allan Francis]

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church, and I invite you to come and see what this Hope looks like.

Psalm 66:5 Come and see the works of God
