Nov 26: Children of Destiny

We are not accidents. We are not blind travellers. We have a place and purpose in God’s plan. This is the message of the Bible. Regardless of our abilities, our failures or even our own plans we have been given a place in God’s plans to reveal His glory and establish His Kingdom. That is, as long as we are willing to put aside our agenda for His.

Are you willing to follow the leading of the Spirit today?

Ahaz gathered together the furnishings from the temple of God and cut them in pieces. He shut the doors of the Lord’s temple and set up altars at every street corner in Jerusalem.

Oct 22: Be Holy as I Am Holy

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

1 Peter 1:15,16 NIV

The same voice that commanded creation says “Be Holy”. Is that a requirement or a declaration? Should we be trying to meet a standard or accepting a truth?

Oct 8: Conformed To His Image

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory,

are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory,

which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Cor 3:18 NIV)

Who are you? How does God see you? Did you know that you are a work of art being made into an image of God by the Holy Spirit? However, a part of that work is that things that aren’t part of that goal need to be removed. This week Ian shares that we are to allow God to do His work as He makes us into reflections of Himself.

What if sharing your faith meant more than words? What if it was more than doctrine but actually carried the actual presence of God? This week Ian Allen looks at sharing your faith in a way that carries God’s presence and not just His words.

Aug 20: The God who leads you

This is what the Lord says—
    your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
    who teaches you what is best for you,
    who directs you in the way you should go. (Isaiah 48:17 NIV)

How often do we wait on God and when we hear what He wants, we jump ahead without Him. We do this because we believe Christianity is about doing what God wants when it’s really about walking with Him. Listen as this week Ian Allen shares on our need to be “Followers of Jesus” not workers. We are to go where He’s going, nothing else.
