Justification by Theology | TheResurgence

Repent of our theological idolatry. While theology is a great thing, it is not an ultimate thing. It is a means to an end to know God and make him known. In what ways have you made it an ultimate thing? Confess them to God. Claim gospel promises. Ask God to help you not makeContinue reading “Justification by Theology | TheResurgence”

5 Reasons You May Not Be Seeing Spiritual Growth | TheResurgence

Trial and temptation is often a sign of God’s work in our circumstances to draw us away from the fleeting promises of sin into the sweeter promises of grace. Allow trial and temptation to push you closer to God, not away from him. Difficult things often indicate God’s presence, not his absence. He disciplines thoseContinue reading “5 Reasons You May Not Be Seeing Spiritual Growth | TheResurgence”

Have We Forgotten The Holy Spirit?

I think it was Francis Chan who said that if you took away the Holy Spirit in churches today, sadly many would still keep on operating because they have been built completely on talent with no request from the supernatural. “Many churches are empty, dry, and void of spiritual life because they have lost touchContinue reading “Have We Forgotten The Holy Spirit?”

ARTICLE: 6 Weeks Away & Unplugged – LV Hanson | Catalyst

The Father Does Not Shout, He Whispers. It wasn’t until I shut everything off that I slowly realized how much I tune into that which is the most immediately appealing…to that which “wins” my attention, and everything around me seems to SHOUT and compete for it – the television I watch, the movies I see,Continue reading “ARTICLE: 6 Weeks Away & Unplugged – LV Hanson | Catalyst”

ARTICLE: 10% Christian Living – Buckley | Catalyst

Imagine if Christ had adopted a 10% world view. What if he gave only 10% of his time and passion while he was on earth and considered the other 90% his? What if he could only have spared 10% of his life on the cross or had chosen to take on just 10% of ourContinue reading “ARTICLE: 10% Christian Living – Buckley | Catalyst”

Not Interested in Religion?

Not interested in religion? Me too. Freedom living is not about religion, it is about a relationship… Many of you may be disillusioned because of ‘religious’ people you’ve known. The interesting thing is that when you read the life of Jesus, he scolded religious leaders of his day because they emphasized the wrong things andContinue reading “Not Interested in Religion?”

Why Is There Suffering?

This morning I read a passage which gave a glimpse into the purpose of suffering… 1As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happenedContinue reading “Why Is There Suffering?”

People Will Listen to You When…

People only accept discipline or criticism in their lives when they feel loved. Too often we burn people out or even push loved ones away when we neglect filling people’s emotional tanks before we offer a word of advice or criticism (or worse we offer advice but no help). Problem is… this is contagious. SoContinue reading “People Will Listen to You When…”

Stuck In A Rut?

I again read this morning in Numbers 14: where the people failed to completely trust and instead grumbled and complained against God. As a result, they wandered in the desert- unable to enter the land God promised. It’s the age old problem –  we think we know better and if we would only trust inContinue reading “Stuck In A Rut?”
