In Acts 19, Paul finds a handful of people following Jesus and much as they know how to follow at that point in time. He then completes the story for them, baptizes them, and then they are filled with the Spirit. Verse 7 is notable: There were about twelve men in all. Continue reading “God doesn’t mind small beginnings”
Do you have particular passages of Scripture where you read them over and over, or come to them regularly on a reading schedule, and you are reminded of when God spoke to you in that passage?
There are a few passages that are radically life-changing for me. They are passages where in that holy moment something radically changed in direction for me. Continue reading “Living in the FRESH word of God”

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4, NIV)
The goal is to fill our vision with Christ and then see his action in the world. Every day I pray that our vision would be full of Christ and not the junk of this world. My prayer each day is to hear his voice and in doing so it will cut down the noise of the world around me.
Let our vision be Christ.
