Your greatest invitation is to know God. Your biggest tools for that are Bible study and prayer. That's why those are your biggest battles.
I got to speak with my Nathan last night, and he was telling me that in one of the services in the Philippines, a girl who had been deaf from birth began to hear for the very first time! She was so shocked and kept saying that everything was too loud. Friend, there is nothing that Jesus can't do! Let your faith arise today! He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, and He still does the impossible!
If you get to go to church this morning without worrying about getting in trouble for being a Christian, don't mess that up by being bored with the song choices, annoyed by the church decor, or by being offended by someone else in the room. If you have the freedom to worship, then by all means, worship Jesus! He is worthy and nothing else is worth your attention!
On the way to church yesterday, we drove past a massive idol standing at the entrance to a cave. Apparently, people frequently go there to worship and sacrifice to that idol. I couldn't help but feel so glad that the God I serve is not a deaf and dumb hunk of wood or metal. Jesus Christ is alive and well, and we can be confident that when we pray, He not only hears us; He answers us! We serve the Living God!
A boy who was blind from birth got healed tonight. I waved at him and got to see his beautiful newly blue eyes! #ohwhatmyeyeshaveseen!!
Leading worship isn't about the latest songs or trendiest sounds. It's certainly not about the best lighting or smoke machines. It's about directing attention away from yourself and pointing it all to Jesus Christ, because He is the only One who deserves the glory! Let your whole life point to Jesus. He is worthy!
The Holy Ghost is not a show or an exhibition. He is a person. He is God Almighty. We are not ashamed of Him or of how He moves!
Songwriters: a lot (not all) of what's popular right now was written because it would sell. I'm begging you, please don't write like that! Get in the Word of God and the presence of Jesus, and don't come out until you've touched Heaven. Those are the songs that will shake the earth!
Dear America: there is no way around repentance, no matter how lovely it may sound. We must repent and return to Jesus.
I beg you, friend; fall in love with Jesus and His beautiful Name! His is the only Name that has the power to save and heal and restore!
If you don't pursue God in the Secret Place, He won't back you up in the public place.
Ok everyone, I have an exciting announcement to make! Over the past two nights, we've been recording live worship in Sarnia, Canada! This is going to be the very first Shake the Nations worship recording, and what excites me most is that many of the songs are worship based on the Cross. We're hoping to make it available in the spring of 2015. Please help us pray that God will use this recording to facilitate the worship of the Church and to introduce the lost to Jesus. He is worthy of it all!
Don't base your #worship on how you feel or how things are going. Base it on how much Jesus deserves. Your feelings will follow. :)
21 people massacred for being unashamed "People of the Cross." May we ever be people of the Cross and may we stand strong for Jesus no matter what the cost.
"Pentecostal" is not a denomination or a style of music. It's not feeling sentimental about a great service. It's not even a philosophy. It's being empowered by the Holy Spirit Himself, who is a consuming fire! #Acts2 #DoItAgainLord
Father in the Name of Jesus, I'm asking You for an awakening to sweep the nations. Let it not be something that man tries to take ownership of, but let Your Spirit draw all men to Yourself! Let the mighty Name of Jesus be lifted high!
