    Human Being or Human Becoming?

    Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1 John 3:2 – NKJV) I am convinced more than ever that the crisis the world faces today is one of identity. We don’t know who we are and because we function from that place, the issues that flow from our hearts and into creation is a very destructive one by virtue of who we are, and what we can do by thought, emotions, and speech. We do have an effect…

    God’s Free Gift To You

    All are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:24) “Justified” is by far one of my favorite words. To be justified means that we have been declared sinless, just as if we did not sin. This applies to all sins: past, present, and future. Yes, it can be argued that we are unworthy and undeserving, but having the same mind as Christ will open our eyes to the fact that God truly loves us. He could have put conditions on His grace, but He didn’t. He extended His love to us free of cost. Sin separated us from God but God dealt…

    Getting Unstuck

    And these signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen. (Mark 16:17-20). The word “unstuck” seems to be a reoccuring one in the kingdom…

    Contemplative Prayer

    Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (Ephesians 6:18 – NLT). Prayer is the one spiritual principle, technology and discipline that I have struggled with all my Christian life. The root of my struggles is really my expectation. If I am praying to a living God, in the way He says I should pray (in the name of Jesus), then naturally I expect answers. I expect results, I expect to produce fruit from my prayer. If this doesn’t happen, and for a very long time it didn’t, then I assume I am praying wrong.…

    You Are A Son of God

    The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15). The real crisis that this world faces is an identity crisis. We don’t know who we are, so we assume all different kinds of identities based on how we are labeled, perceived, and raised by our families, associations and community. What we don’t realize is that all these are actually false identities. No human being can truly define Himself outside of God, because He sits at the very foundation of creation. His identity, His…

    You Have Holy Spirit

    God set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 1:22). As a new believer in Christ, we are often given some external practices that is said to help us get started on our journey. We are told to read our Bible daily, pray to God daily and not to forsake the assembling of ourselves weekly. These are foundational principles that churches usually teach new converts. It’s all good, but there is one fundamental truth that I wish I was taught as a new believer; the Holy Spirit is real, He lives inside us, and…
