Can I find refuge in Christ

  1. 1. Can I Find Refuge in Christ?<br />Psalm 9:7-10<br />
  2. 2. The world is filled with trouble, everywhere people are seeking refuge.<br />Let us study this little sentence and see what we can learn.<br />This is a QUESTION.<br />CAN I find refuge in Christ?<br />Jesus tells us in Mt. 11:28…<br />Jeremiah told of this… Jer. 6:16<br />We can do something…1 Peter 5:7<br />Yes, I CAN find refuge in Christ!<br />CAN I Find Refuge In Christ?<br />
  3. 3. Take away the can and now the sentence is an AFFIRMATION!<br />Let us all tell the world, I have found refuge! <br />Phillip told his nephew Jn. 1:43-45.<br />Psalm 23 Let all the world know that the Lord is your shepherd.<br />Take away the I and what do you have?<br />I Find Refuge In Christ?<br />
  4. 4. An EXHORTATION for others to do as you have done.<br />Paul tells Felix the gospel story – Find refuge Felix. Acts 24-25<br />Paul to Agrippa, “I know that you believe” Acts 26:27-29<br />You will find true refuge in Christ!<br />FIND refuge in Christ<br />
  5. 5. Take away the FIND and you have refuge in Christ. That’s CONSOLATION!<br />There is that consolation, nothing can compare!<br />Christ with all authority will be with us always. Matthew 28:18-20<br />Peter asked what do I get in return? Mark 10:28-30 Listen to Christ’s answer.<br />In Hebrews 13:5 Christ says, I will never leave or forsake thee.<br />REFUGE in Christ<br />
  6. 6. Erase the word refuge and you have IN Christ!<br />In Christ is EXALTATION! It’s the highest place man can be elevated to.<br />Paul wrote about the difference. 2 Cor. 5:17<br />Can share a mansion with the Christ. John 14:1-6<br />IN Christ<br />
  7. 7. CHRIST<br />Erase the word in and all you have left is Christ.<br />That’s SATISFACTION - above all.<br />Christ says seek first my kingdom and all other things will be added. Mt. 6:33<br />If in this life only we have hope we are of all men most miserable. 1 Cor. 15:19-20<br />We have satisfaction in knowing Him. 1 Jn. 5:20<br />Let us all live that at the end of life we will have nothing but Christ.<br />
  8. 8. You can have refuge in Christ this hour!<br />If you believe the gospel. 1 Cor. 15:3-4; Rom. 1:16-17<br />When you repent of sin. Acts 2:38<br />By confessing Christ. Acts 8:37; Rom. 10:10<br />By being baptized into Christ through the watery grave of baptism, and raising to walk in newness of life. Romans 6:3-6<br />By being faithful to Jesus, obeying His word.
