The Refuge of Reeseville Church
Greetings to all from the Refuge. We believe the Lord Jesus has called us to minister to the poor in heart, to give hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the tired, strength to the weary, and peace where there is chaos. To listen to someone who needs to talk, to play with a child that wants to play, to give respect to the heart that longs so much for it, but can’t find it. To heap the blessing of the Lord upon those that are wondering where the blessings of the Lord are. To reassure them that this too shall pass, that the Lord will make a way. That Jesus has already won. To teach them what really matters in this life: the things that will last forever, the things that will not. To speak words of truth to them that have believed a lie.
In Matthew 25:35-46 Jesus shares with us an amazing truth. That if we will reach out to those in need and if we will give of ourselves for the benefit of others, Jesus tells us that “In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of my brothers, you have done it unto Me.” Visiting the sick, feeding the hungry, and meeting whatever needs are out there.
Also Isaiah 52:7 our Lord gives us a picture of what His value system is made of: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of them that bring good news, that proclaim peace and Salvation, that say unto His people, Your God reigns!”
Who doesn’t want to hear Good news? Who doesn’t want to hear that there is Hope? That there is more to this life than the “Rat Race.”
Once again we pause for a moment and wonder where the time has gone. Last month we celebrated Mothers’ Day & Memorial Day, this month we will celebrate Fathers’ Day. Just like so many other holidays that we celebrate: every day should be Mothers’ Day, every day should be Fathers’ day. Every day we need to be remembering the price that was paid for us to live in a free country. Remembering the price that was paid for our Salvation. Every day I will honor my mother and my father. Every day I will give honor and respect to the most wonderful wife that the Lord has given to me.
Who doesn’t want a home that is full of Peace and Love? What would a father give to have his children respect their mother and father?
My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church. I would like to invite you to come and learn more of what the Lord has promised to us. To experience the family that the Lord intended.
