Hey everyone I’m Pastor Gary Hoban and welcome to episode 39 of Refinery Life radio /TV.

Our goal here is to release a 2-3 minute video / Podcast each day, designed to challenge you and get you to spend more time with God.

Today we are going to talk about, Energised by love.

There is no greater example of loving service than that shown by a mother.

It is remarkable the great sacrifice a mother makes for her children when they are feeling sick or they are going through struggles in their life.

Did you know that the apostle Paul served with that type of love?

In his letter to the Christians in Thessalonica, he wrote,

7 But we behaved gently when we were among you, like a devoted mothertenderly caring for her own children.

8 Having such a deep affection for you, we [a]were delighted to share with you not only God’s good news but also our own lives, because you had become so very dear to us.
1 Thessalonians 2:7-8 (AMP)

Is your service energised by love as well?

Do you show love to those you serve?

Confess to God today that sometimes your love is shallow and weak.

Ask Him to pour His love into you and through you to touch the people you meet today, especially those who feel rejected and alone.

Until tomorrow
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

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
