God wants you to be discipled in both His Word and His Spirit. One way you will grow in His Spirit is through becoming more and more aware of prophecy.
You will never finish something if you don’t first commit to finish. Commitment is an important step in the completion of any project. Commitment can change your experience of life completely.
The tithe matters to you—yes, you! The tithe is your way to acknowledge that Jesus is your Lord and Savior. It’s much more than a teaching of the law. The principle of the tithe is throughout the Bible.
What a weekend we had with guest minister Keith Moore! It was a blessing as we listened to his various messages on reaping and harvesting what God has prepared for us. This was a weekend where you may want to listen to ALL three messages to get the full picture of what Keith was sharing. When you sow into God’s kingdom, you are planting financial seed into the ground. It is your job, however, to expect and reap a harvest! God has given you the ability to do so. In fact, your harvest is often waiting, and too many Christians don’t realize that they are supposed to actively get it by faith!
Set a vision for where you want your life to go! It matters. It will take time and resources to accomplish your vision, so work hard and then wait patiently for it to come together. As you wait, expect that the vision God has given you will be accomplished. Keep your expectation connected to the vision and plan God has given you.
Before Jesus left this earth, He had specific instructions for His disciples to be His witnesses “both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This is a clear strategy for how we can bring Jesus from our house to the world. Affecting the world for Jesus starts with those close to us: our family and community. From there, it goes to our state, our nation, and the world.
Centuries ago, when David first saw Goliath, he didn’t shrink in fear. He spoke. He proclaimed what he believed—and if he did have any qualms about taking down Goliath, he used his words to eliminate his fear. He spoke faith—and we can do the same as he did!
What does love look like? Well, we know that love will be shown as we pursue peace and follow holiness. We know that love is not characterized by bitterness, but by forgiveness. We know that love is not offensive. Most importantly, though, we know what love looks like by looking at God’s love for us.
We live in a time where we can’t simply live on cruise control. We need to focus our attention outward, tune into the Spirit of God, and learn how to live daily by the law of love.
