Time to Suit Up, Family!

We’re in the countdown to Easter and I’m excited! God wants to include us in how powerful heart-level work. Keep praying and don’t forget our weekend schedule: 40-Hour Prayer Room: Come intercede for those who don’t know Jesus’ love. The prayer room will be in Building A from 4:00p.m. Friday, all through Saturday and Sunday at 8:00 a.m. We…

A Chance to be a Family for Real

    During our Experiencing God series, we’ve talked a lot about praying the Include Me prayer. Much of the time, though, I’ve been speaking about it singular perspective–how Jesus wants to include you personally. But God has something even bigger going on. He wants to include us all in something as a family.     This Easter, Jesus wants us to band…

The Old Couch

   Once when Debbie and I ordered a new couch, we realized, almost on the day of its delivery, that we needed to move our old couch to make room for the new one. Every time God calls us to obey, he’s leading us to place of greater blessing. Yes, it may seem like sacrifice in the moment, but really, it’s like getting rid of the old couch to receive a new one.  …

How to Hear God’s Voice

I’ve been moved recently by Mark Virkler’s book on how to hear God’s voice. Here’s an excerpt I found to be a powerful reminder… Prayer is our link to God, and therefore, the most important activity we can engage in. Prayer is supposed to be powerful, effective, and meaningful in our lives. Yet many times it is nothing more than a dutiful…

Getting It or Not Getting It?

    This quote from Experiencing God really gets to the heart of the issue… “There is a world of difference between knowing something to be true in your head and experiencing the reality in your life…God does not merely want you to read about Him, He wants you to know Him. For the Greeks, to know something meant you understood a concept in your mind. It…

Superman is Coming!

    Okay, okay, I know Jaye Thomas isn’t Superman, but that’s what I think of every time I see this guy. He’s got super passion and his worship leading is both powerful and contagious. I couldn’t be more excited about his coming this Sunday.      Jaye will be leading worship this Sunday in both services and then leading Immerse on Sunday evening…

I Don’t Need God in Order to Live My Life

    Remember the Six P’s? See if you can name them without looking. Really, take a moment to try it. Here they are….(last chance to try to list them before I reveal them)…pain, power, pleasure, possessions, praise of people and…of course…pmoney.     If all I want to do…

God Really Answers the “Include Me” Prayer!

As people center their lives in what Father God is doing in the world, he loves to include them. I don’t have time to share all the stories people are sending me. Here are a few cool ones… “I prayed the include me prayer the night before and the next day at school I saw a girl…

Jesus and James Bond

     In almost every action movie ever filmed is a scene where the good guys rescue other good guys from the bad guys (sound familiar?). The good guys fight their way in and then, finding their comrades, they untie them and yell, “Come on, let’s get out of here!”      This is what Jesus is doing when he call us to deny ourselves in Luke 9:23. After his…
