Series Four Released!

Series Four | Presence and Glory I am thrilled to say that Series Four is now available. In Series Four we focus on the presence of God and learn some practical keys to experiencing His presence in a consistent and ongoing way. We then look at how God calls us to actually live in His presence all the time by taking the conscious sense of His presence into our daily lives. When we abide in God’s presence, we can begin to easily minister to other people in His love and release His grace and power. In many ways, the material in Series Four reflects the lessons that God has taught me as I...

One with Christ Studies

1 Corinthians 2:9 Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him. In Jesus we have an inheritance that surpasses our understanding. The depths of Christ’s love, presence, nature and life are ours to experience. He has freely given us His Spirit and all the qualities that flow from His life: He has given us His love, joy, peace, healing, wisdom and more.

Predestined To..

On a few occasions in Scripture we find the word predestined. For some people this word is almost entirely overlooked throughout their spiritual lives. For others it is a word that shapes their spirituality and defines the way they view their salvation in God. So what does it mean to be predestined by God? How does predestination affect our spiritual life and our growth in God? Romans 8:28-31 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become...

Predesigned

This article continues on from the Predestined To article.   The Greek word proorizo speaks of being predesigned according to a defined plan more than it speaks of being predestined to a certain fate. Predestination is not a question of destiny but of identity. As God’s creation, we are predesigned with a definite purpose. So what is God’s design for our lives? In His Image Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” Romans 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predesigned to become conformed to the image of His Son… In the beginning, God created...

Growing in Christ

Growing in Christ is about deepening our relationship with God. In the natural realm we have many different relationships. We have friends, colleagues, spouses, children, mentors, teachers, students and so on. If we share a mutual desire to deepen a relationship with someone, then we invest more into the relationship. We put more time, energy and resources into that relationship, and we reap the reward of having a deeper relationship with that person. By investing more in the relationship we experience greater growth, connection, fulfilment and intimacy. The same is true for our spiritual...
