Four years ago I received in the mail a bundle of what appeared to be sticks. They looked like something you would start a fire with. They were about twelve inches long and a little larger than the diameter of a pencil. I happened to know that they were not “just” sticks. They contained life in them and properly cared for, would one day produce grapes. Continue reading “The Branches”
Sunday mornings we gather to worship like most churches do. God must look with excitement as His Bride is focused and demonstrating a unity that is rarely seen any other part of the week. Our church sanctuary is fortunate to have windows that allows worshipers to see high into the trees. Often, as we sing praise and worship to Continue reading “Freedom to Be”
” I was shown MERCY because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The GRACE of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the FAITH and LOVE that are IN Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 1:13-14, NIV)
In this Scripture we see Paul testifying of how God looked upon Him with mercy and brought supernatural transformation to His life. God poured abundant grace, faith and love on Him. That is why we see Paul was able to do great and mighty exploits for God. It was not by his power or might but by the power of the Spirit of God. He was given supernatural grace, faith and love to operate in the earth realm to advance God’s kingdom.
I believe right now in the body of Christ God has poured out grace, faith and love for us to do amazing things for the Kingdom and glorify His Name.
If He did it for His son, Paul, He has done it for us now and even greater…the testimony of Christ is the spirit of prophecy.
The realm of grace, faith and love is abiding in Christ. A place of rest where His Spirit leads and guides us to all truth. A place where He is our strength and confidence. A place of walking on water, partaking of His divine nature and sharing in the glorious inheritance of God. A place of victory, purpose, joy, peace and love.
Receive grace, love and faith now. Amen

Recently I was reading in Ephesians 4 which happens to be one of my favorite go-to passage on the Church. I came to verses 15 & 16:
Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Continue reading “Special Unique Work”
In December I wrote an article about how I believe God is restoring His church back to her original design. I said, “I believe God is looking for those whom He is rallying, to honor and trust the vision and mission of these Fathers and Mothers.” For some this statement may not make sense, as it is true that so many have self serving motives for the Continue reading “Finding The Vision To Serve”
