Again and again God asks men to do not what they can, but what they can’t....– Leonard Ravenhill
Becoming: Week 2 - Day 2
So then, remember that at one time you Gentiles by birth, called “the uncircumcision” by those who are called “the circumcision”—a physical circumcision made in the flesh by human hands— remember that you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus...

Becoming: Week 2 - Day 1
Whoops, I’m a little behind on posting these. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places (Ephesians 1:3 NRSV) We are blessed in Christ with every spiritual blessing.

Where is the Holy Spirit Power?!

That's Not What She Said!
“That’s what she said!” …I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this joke, or jokes like it. The surprising thing is that many times it comes from Christian guys. I’m not innocent here either, I’ve laughed and told these jokes myself. Is this really the way that the Spirit leads us though? I’ve heard many people say “don’t...
Becoming: Day 4
Ephesians 4 talks about God establishing His kingdom here on earth. What sets us apart is the way we live together. We are in the world but we do not live like the world. The world seeks to find purpose in their own schemes and plans, according to their own desires and thoughts. We are clothed with Christ, we live with Christ inside of us, not just some wonderful idea, but a true reality. He...
