This is some of my journey in listening to God speak – as evidenced all through Scripture.
Warning: Challenging thoughts ahead.
What do you do when Scripture and hearing God’s voice challenges everything you hear and experience in your culture? Even your church culture?
Do you defer to your tradition?
Or do you boldly follow Jesus – out of your tradition?
Do you follow Jesus ‘out of the box’?
Jesus wants to be in fellowship with us and that is one reason He gives us His Holy Spirit—so we would never have to be alone. One of the things Jesus promised us is that the Holy Spirit would speak to us, so that we could maintain our intimate relationship with Him. (1 John 14:16-21).
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13)
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27 (NIV)
The challenge comes when your culture silences the voice of God, His Holy Spirit.
This is some of my journey…
Walking away from the culture I knew (even as a traditional church pastor), and following Holy Spirit has led me to the most beautiful adventures with Jesus.
Jesus has far more for us – than the boxes we knowingly or unknowingly put Him in…
I love to hear God’s voice.
His voice heals and leads to abundant living!
I love to empower others to hear God’s voice and follow Him.
I’m on a journey…
learning about less of me, less of religion…
and more of Jesus.
What does it mean to really follow Him?
I’m exploring and learning.
I am a child of God.
…a gold miner… a treasure hunter, a mentor, a coach, a spiritual director, a former traditional church pastor – now a church planter of disciple making movements, a teacher, a researcher, a hungry prayer warrior, a loyal friend, a fellow traveller and an avid explorer. 🙂
