Jesus heals the leper

kristie Discipleship, Love

Many of my favorite passages in the Bible are accounts of people being healed and scriptures on healing.  Maybe this is because I am a physician, or maybe I became a physician because I was so compelled by stories of healing.  I love hearing testimonies of miraculous healings, and even more so, seeing them personally. Why? Is it seeing the …

God’s Word in me

kristie Bible, Hearing God, In Christ

There are so many treasures hidden in the Word of God  placed there by a loving Father for us to find. Proverbs 25:2 says  “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (NIV)  I believe that God is calling us to a deeper place in His Word. Let’s …

In Pursuit

chad Love, Revival

Why should I pursue Him?  I know that Christ died for me and one day I will go to heaven.  Why spend time in pursuit of Him when I know that I already have the promise of heaven?   I pursue Him because He has called me and given me a divine purpose. I pursue Him because there is more.  I …

No Fear

chad Faith, Love

Fear and anxiety have a way of controlling many areas of our lives.  It is time we choose to live in love rather than fear. Fear is not meant to have any place in our lives.  You were created to live without fear. Fear didn’t exist until sin entered mankind.  In the garden Adam and Eve walked freely with no …

God Unfiltered

kristie Culture, Revival, Worship

What would it look like? God unfiltered.   Not filtered by our programs. Not filtered by time constraints. Not filtered by our comfort zone. Not filtered by concerns that a move of the Spirit might offend someone. Not filtered by lies we have believed about ourselves. Not filtered by misconceptions about who we think God is. Not filtered by fear …

Encounter

chad Culture, Revival, The Altar

An encounter at the altar can change your life and the life of a nation in a moment. An altar is not just a physical place. It is a place of sacrifice and worship. It is meant to draw us closer to God. We like to make religious monuments to things that were meant to be transforming and life giving.   We …

God we want more of YOU!

chad Revival, The Altar

It is time we became more hungry for a move of God!!! Are you hungry for a move of God in your city?   What does that even look like? It doesn’t matter what your city is like, it needs a move of God.  We can’t be content with just clean streets and good schools. We need a move of God. …

The Power of Your Declaration

kristie Faith, In Christ

Words carry power.  They carry the power to build, and to destroy.  They have the power to start wars, tear down dreams, and incite others to hatred.  They also have the power to ignite a movement, bring comfort, calm fears, and inspire greatness in others.   Great men and women of history are often remembered by the words that they spoke. …

Altar Culture – Faith

chad Culture, Faith

Let’s talk about faith.   It is a powerful word, often used without  a real understanding of it’s meaning. For example, look how people use the word love.  I love that thing. I love that food. We throw the word love around to anything that looks or feels good and the true weight of the word gets washed out.  Faith, I …

Altar Culture – Redemption part 2

kristie Culture, Love, Redemption

Welcome back.  Let’s continue our discussion on redemption.  Previously we had talked about the definition of redemption-  The action of regaining or gaining possession of something in exchange for payment, or clearing a debt.  We had been stuck in our sin.  In the old covenant men were required to sacrifice animals for blood was required to cover their sins.  However, …
