    The Goal of the Church.

    The Goal of the Church.

    Welcome to The Refinery.



    The Church The Body of Christ is the theme for the next few Sunday’s.



    These messages are primarily based around Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.



    Today we are discussing, The Goal of the Church.



    Ephesians 4:7-16 NKJV



    Spiritual Gifts



    7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 



    8 Therefore He says:

    “When He ascended on high,
    He led captivity captive,
    And gave gifts to men.”



    9 (Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also [a]first descended into the lower parts of the earth? 



    10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)



    11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 



    12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the [b]edifying of the body of Christ, 



    13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 



    14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 



    15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 



    16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.



    The total impression of this passage from Ephesians 4 is that Christ has a goal, a supreme standard for His church, and that goal is so high, so exalted that it taxes the imagination to comprehend it.



    Nonetheless, here and now, in the body of this flesh, we are to strive to attain it.



    Specifically, this passage leaves three impressions on the mind and the heart.



    First, Christ has given us the grace whereby we may reach the goal.



    Second, the means of growth for reaching that goal are at hand.



    And third, we must not stop nor be satisfied short of the goal, no matter how high the standard nor how great the difficulties in the way.

    Until next time



    Stay in the Blessings



    I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.



    When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

    Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!



    You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at The Refinery.



    When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.



    So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us at www.refinerylife.org

    Walking Worthily as a Church Member.

    Walking Worthily as a Church Member.

    Welcome to The Refinery.



    The Church The Body of Christ is the theme for the next few Sunday’s.



    These messages are primarily based around Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.



    Today we are discussing, Walking Worthily as a Church Member.

    Walking is often used in the bible as a figure of speech to describe a certain manner or way of life.



    This is true of the seven occurrences in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians where he contrasts the walk of the believer with that of the unbeliever.



    In chapters 1-3 of Ephesians, Paul described the height and depth, the glory and wonder of the Christian calling. 



    Being a Christian is a glorious privilege.



    In chapters 4-6 he urged Christians to walk worthily of such a privilege.



    Paul was urgent, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,”



    Paul was saying, “You are representatives of Christ in this world. Let your manner of life be such that it will not be a reproach to your Master.”



    Three things about this worthy walk, all hinging on our text, are suggested in Ephesians.

    Until next time



    Stay in the Blessings



    I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.



    When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

    Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!



    You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at The Refinery.

    The Church The Body of Christ

    The Church The Body of Christ

    Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.



    The Church The Body of Christ is the theme for the next few Sunday’s.



    These messages are primarily based around Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.



    Today we are discussing, The Church, The Body of Christ.

    Centuries ago the psalmist said in Psalm 139:14, I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    Marvelous are Your works,
    And that my soul knows very well.



    The human body is an awesome example of unity in diversity.



    Dozens of organs perform different functions yet work in such harmony that we must make a deliberate effort to think of the human body in a way except as unity.



    In the church at Corinth, some had gifts the others did not have, and as a result, they thought of themselves more highly than they should have.



    This provoked the less gifted to jealousy.



    The result was discord and strife among the members.



    In substance Paul was saying to them, “You do not realise your relationship to one another and to Christ. You are joined to one another and dependant on one another.

    You are the physical expression and instrument of Christ in this world just as the body is the physical expression and instrument of the mind.”



    1 Corinthians 12:27, Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.



    Several practical suggestions about the church are called out by this text.

    Until next time



    Stay in the Blessings



    I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.



    When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

    Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!



    You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at The Refinery.

    What do Apostles do?

    What do Apostles do?

    Welcome to The Refinery.



    Today we are discussing, What Apostles Do?

    Firstly Apostles are called by God 



    1 Corinthians 1:1 

    Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,



    Apostles are recognised by the church.



    Acts 6:3 

    Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business;



    And Apostles are sent out by the church.



    Acts 13:3

    Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.



    Acts 15:22

    Then it pleased the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas, namely, Judas who was also named Barsabas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren.



    Apostles are a servant ministry to the local church and are given an office by the Lord and an anointing to fulfil the role.



    If an ‘apostle’ comes without these credentials and attitude of service, reject them.  



    Test the spirit and fruit of the apostle, there is safety in the body to discern if they sent by the Lord (church) or came by themselves.









    I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.



    When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

    Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!



    You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at ⁠The Refinery.⁠

    Deliver Us from Evil.

    Deliver Us from Evil.

    Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

    The Master’s recipe for Effective Praying has been the theme for the last few Sunday’s and is a study of the petitions found in the Lord’s prayer.

    Today we are discussing, Deliver Us from Evil.

    Seven is the number for completeness in the Bible.

    It is of special interest that the Master of prayer gave us just seven petitions in the Model Prayer,

    This could indicate that he felt that the seven petitions covered every need that people might bring to God.

    “Deliver us from evil” is the last of the petitions.

    It voices a cry that comes from the heart of the children of God as they live on this world.

    It is a cry expressing great urgency.

    Surely it is appropriate as we assemble for worship in the midst of a troubled world.

    Consider with me today some important implications set forth by this simple petition.

    And let us recognise the urgent need for us to be taking this petition to our heavenly Father daily.

    Until next time

    I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

    Lead Us Not Into Temptation.

    Lead Us Not Into Temptation.

    Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

    The Master’s recipe for Effective Praying is the theme for the next few Sunday’s and is a study of the petitions found in the Lord’s prayer.

    Today we are discussing, Lead Us Not Into Temptation.

    The battle with temptation is a continuing battle in all of life and is what prompted our petition for today “Lead us not into temptation.”

    Doubtlessly, the Teacher intended for each of these petitions to be repeated daily.

    Even one day of relaxation during the battle with temptation can be spiritually fatal.

    While Jesus did not experience the need voiced in the second of the petitions, “forgive us,” He did experience this one.

    That is, since He never said come to any temptation, He never had to request forgiveness.

    You may question whether Jesus really knew the power of temptation.

    The truth is that only the person who ever knows the full power of temptation is the person who resists it.

    Jesus knew more about the power of temptation than any of us.

    This petition lends it self to deeper meditation.



    Until next time
