Unclean Hearts

Mark 7:1-23

When the Bible talks of our hearts, the writers are speaking of our inner most being; our thoughts, motivations, emotions.   In The Gospel of Mark, chapter-7, Jesus declares all hearts unclean, and the source of our defilement not external, but internal.  But Jesus doesn’t leave us there, he gives us a solution.  If we want to get well, Jesus offers a new heart, and a clean start.

Parable of the Sower

Mark 4:1-20

When you truly seek to HEAR God’s Word and let it take root, it will transform your desires, your hopes, your dreams, your response to trials, the pursuits of your life, the way you raise your kids, the way you love your spouse.  It will produce a bountiful harvest.

Mark 2:23-3:6

Due to some technical difficulties, we only recorded a portion of the audio from this message (2nd half), however, the full written manuscript follows, and as an added bonus, this week we’ve also included the audio for our time of worship together.

Night of Worship

This week we took a break from our study of the Gospel of Mark and simply spent time in worship through song.

Singing is such an emotional activity.  We sing when we’re happy.  We sing when we’re sad.  Singing requires the use of our physical equipment.  Posture.  Breathing.  Listening.  Making sound.  Energy.  Our voices can rise in a triumphant SHOUT, cry out in anguish or tremble in anticipation.  Singing is that rare activity that has the unique ability to involve our entire person as we come together and that the center of ALL things is a glorious and gracious King, and that we are not that king.

We hope you enjoy (and sing along and worship along with) this full audio recording of a very special night at Refuge.Church.
