Hey everyone I’m Pastor Gary Hoban and welcome to episode 50 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, Imparting your life.

One reason the apostle Paul’s ministry still affects us today is that he was thoroughly focused on pouring his life into other people.

To the church leaders in Ephesus he said in Acts 20:20 (AMP)

20 [you know] how I did not shrink back in fear from telling you anything that was for your benefit, or from teaching you in public meetings, and from house to house,

And he did this for three years it tells us in Acts 20:31 (AMP)

31 Therefore be continually alert, remembering that for three years, night or day, I did not stop admonishing and advising each one [of you] with tears.

To the Christians in Thessalonica he said 1 Thessalonians 2:8 (AMP)

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.

And he worked with Timothy for fifteen years, equipping him to carry the baton of leadership.

The famous preacher John Wesley said, “God buries His workmen, but His work goes on.”

Are you that kind of workman?

Are you pouring yourself into others, including your children?

If so your impact will continue long after you are gone, even if you don’t see it now.

Ask God to help you honestly assess your impact on others.

Ask Him to show you who you should pour your life into, and how you should do it.

Ask Him to show you how to influence others for good through His power and Spirit.

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
