Are you suffering on the inside?

There are 4 traditional approaches to discipleship that actually lead to bondage: Osmosis: Get people to attend church and serve faithfully. Academics: Teach information about the faith. Behaviour: Establish performance expectations for church members. Church: Train people to invite others, serve, and join a small group.  These 4 things above may have good elements but withoutContinue reading “Are you suffering on the inside?”

How can you tell if the enemy (has even subtly) gotten a foothold in your life?

(I was asked this question yesterday by my students just before leading an interactive group coaching class online…)   I first pointed them to Ephesians 4. Take a moment today to read it. I’ve seen the enemy get a foothold in people’s lives WAY too may times – as this passage explains.   Secondly, read 1Continue reading “How can you tell if the enemy (has even subtly) gotten a foothold in your life?”

Am I Being Deceived?

This past year, I had the joy of walking with a woman coming out of the New Age movement. In fact, she had once been a New Age teacher. We started with Scriptures in our sessions and took our time before we began asking Jesus questions. Her heart now was so beautifully hungry and thirstyContinue reading “Am I Being Deceived?”

God, our Almighty Nurturer and Protector (Mother’s Day)

Today, going over this message I once gave on Mother’s Day in 2015 blew me away… I needed to read this once again… to see the way God has THE BEST MOTHER HEART (He created mothers after all!!) Maybe you need this today too…? (I changed some of the language to reflect that it’s nowContinue reading “God, our Almighty Nurturer and Protector (Mother’s Day)”

A Pastor’s Confession

This is my confession. I’m sorry… To all the people who I once pastored in an institutional church… I am sorry that I didn’t know then what I know now. My church and Bible school experience did not adequately prepare me to walk you to complete freedom in Jesus’ name. Nor did I disciple you howContinue reading “A Pastor’s Confession”

Persuasive Words of Men?

If your faith is based on the persuasive words of men, your faith will not go deep. 
When life difficulty comes, your faith will fall.
 But, if your faith is based on the power of Holy Spirit, 
the kingdom of God in your life will be unshakable. Jesus didn’t merely share information, nor motivational speaking. Jesus alwaysContinue reading “Persuasive Words of Men?”

The Fastest Growing Church

This will challenge your every thought on: “WHAT and WHO is a church..?” Interestingly, I learned about this film on September 11… You will soon learn why… “The fastest growing church in the world has taken root in one of the most unexpected and radicalized nations on earth,” according to “Sheep Among Wolves,” the outstandingContinue reading “The Fastest Growing Church”

We are Tired of Listening to Men

“Mr Moody, there must be more prayer. The speaking here is excellent but there is too much of it in proportion to prayer. We do not have time to pray. We get tired when going to meetings, listening to men. We must have more time to speak to God and to listen to Him.” – AndrewContinue reading “We are Tired of Listening to Men”

How Lies Control Us

What I have noticed in walking with my Life Coaching clients… If you know the truth but don’t live it out, this is living a lie. Believing lies, makes liars of ourselves and makes it possible for greater deception to ensnare us more deeply. When we believe lies, we are more easily frightened and anxious andContinue reading “How Lies Control Us”

A Culture of Honour – Men and Women

Tears of healing began to roll down my face. I didn’t know what was happening in me at the time, but I found myself in a culture of honour – observing and experiencing men honouring women and vice versa. It was so powerful JUST WITNESSING IT. I wept deeply… healing much of the diagnosed psychological, emotional,Continue reading “A Culture of Honour – Men and Women”
