I understand why you might have disdain for God. I assure you, He has no disdain for you. Talk in His direction. Experiment. He’s closer than you think.
Show me a person who doesn’t suck in their stomach when they look themselves in the mirror and I’ll show you someone capable of changing the world.
It is purely through grace that God reveals Himself to us But on occasion we forget that And we begin to think of ourselves higher than we ought while making Him lower We judge and assess God based on how He responds to our demands and prayers This is not right God does not owe us anythingContinue reading “Masterpiece”
Here is an interview with Francis Chan, a recovering Mega-church pastor who began to reject his own fame to follow the Spirit of God. The interviewers seem to be simply confused by him and attempt to pick his brain… attempt to poke fun at him. It’s clear that he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. LoveContinue reading “Interviewing an Alien”
It grieves me to report that from my estimation, from the US in the city with the most churches… we have almost completely quit estimating our Christianity by spiritual means, discerning the presence of the Holy Spirit and the fruit therein, and we’ve exchanged it for our perceived “church” attendance.

I can’t sayContinue reading “Dallad Willard on His Spiritual Practices”

When I received the revelation that God was calling me out of the traditional prescribedContinue reading “From Compartment to Fulfillment (Updated*)”
“Praise Jesus, I’ve been saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost!” Ever said this, or heard someone say something similar. There’s not a lot wrong with it, the intentions of it are pretty good. But, there’s a problem I want to point out… it’s all in the past tense. See we have a tendency toContinue reading “Living in the Romance”
It seems that us church folks love to focus on the past and on the future of God’s history, while neglecting the present.
