    BOLDNESS Boldness is not a suggestion for ALL IN Christians. The definition of boldness here is “showing or requiring a fearless, daring spirit.” That is not to say we are rude. It does not mean for Christians to push their way on others, but it certainly means that we are not afraid of being bold to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Jesus makes this very clear in this statement: 32 Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33 NKJV   Well, you may be saying, “This isn’t such an easy fasting guide.” That is why we are fasting. We must keep our body under submission to our spirit to even read these verses and take them to heart! Deny here means “those who disavow, contradict or refuse Him before man.” So we need to evaluate before the Holy Spirit if we truly are living our lives in a contradiction to His characteristics that He says we should have. If someone asks us, “Why is JESUS the only way to

    OBEDIENCE Obedience is another important word and aspect in every Christian life. It is a principle of God in both the Old and the New Testament (Covenant). And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 11:13 NKJV   This is the same commandment that Jesus told His disciples. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. Mark 12:30 NKJV   And Jesus goes on to tell us the other commandment that is equally important: And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31 NKJV   We have to be ALL IN in our LOVE first for God with all that we are, all that we do, all that we think and we have to be ALL IN in our love for others. Let’s face it, loving God is usually so much easier than loving people, because

    VISION Vision is “the ability to see or dream, especially as part of a religious or supernatural experience.” Vision is necessary if we are to accomplish anything in the Kingdom of God. I am not talking about natural vision, but we must see as God sees things. That means we do not just look at things as they appear to be, but we get to look through spiritual lenses to see everything as He sees it. And our Father sees everything through eyes of love and through spiritual revelation. Abraham got to know that God was his reward because of a vision he had in the night. After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Genesis 15:1 NKJV   It was a revelation of the giving God that he served. It killed the fear that was trying to steal away his coming reward. Vision that the Lord gives us will always cause us to see past the present circumstances. Abraham couldn’t figure out how he could be the father of many nations as he was still childless. He appeared childless.

    DEVOTED This is how God began speaking to me in regards to 2018. Devoted. What a word! This word is so layered in its meaning. It means “having strong love or loyalty for something or someone.” The synonyms are: • Adoring • Affectionate • Loving • Tenderhearted While the antonym is: • Unloving Wow! One little word, with so much meaning! Let’s break this down. If God is speaking to us about devotion, then we need to pay attention to what He is trying to reveal to us. Let’s start with the kind of love He wants us to exude through our devotion. Didn’t He model that for us? 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18 NKJV   God had pre-determined to

    21-Day Scripture and Worship Guide ALL IN We have so many things to be thankful for! God has spoken many things over us. We have been discovering and experiencing how limitless we are as we have: • Reached out to others • Seen miracles in our midst • Been a part of bringing people to know the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ • Seen transformation of lives • Been loving to each other • Connected to God on a higher level • Enjoyed a closer, more personal fellowship with God and with each other • Welcomed new people into our family • Been together in His presence finding the meaning of life • Become more and more givers We are now entering into a season where we will begin to understand what God is saying to us with the words “ALL IN.” When He began speaking to me about 2018, He awakened my spirit to the importance of being ALL IN. First and foremost, of course, ALL IN with HIM, which is much of what we will be concentrating on. There is a lot to consider of how we can be ALL IN with God. Consider this: However,

    One of the ingredients of impact in those who make a difference is truth – God’s revelatory truth; then passion – a burning zeal that consumes their spirit-man; and a reflex obedience to follow through with God’s dictates and instructions. Jesus is a person that represents the truth of everything – he is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Peter, despite his inadequacies was a proclaimer of truth and over 5,000 people got saved in a day. Paul, after his conversion from being a persecutor, commanded infirmity to leave a woman in the name of “truth” (Jesus) when the zeal of the Lord consumed him. Truth always prevails because Jesus has won the victory. The name of Jesus makes a difference. Passion was the ingredient that caused Jesus to leave his majestic throne as God in heaven, to come to earth. God loved us so passionately that he gave us Jesus to atone for our sins. David in the earthly realm was considered a friend of God who loved him so passionately that he was called – a man after God’s heart. David had an intimate relationship with God – through the shepherd days when he slayed

    You can be so godly and be so active with all the gifts that God gave you but he may not know you still. If your heart is not right with God, then it could all be a waste. There are things in our hearts that cause a blockage between us and God. The contents and disposition of our hearts determine the access we’re given. Luke 19:8 talks about the situation of Zacchaeus’ heart when he desperately wanted to make it right with the Lord even though he appeared to be a good man. Jesus saw the intent of his heart and he got an invite to the fold. David who was labeled a man after God’s own heart failed miserably in his place before God, and it cost him his very own seed. All it takes at times is a recognition of how divergent our heart may have been drifting away from God and a conscious effort to just stop and make a turn back to the throne of grace. We need to always have a heart check even with our charitable deeds, the intent of our hearts determines the reward that the heavens bestow on us following such

    If you must win the nations for God, it all has to start with a vision. The scriptures say: go into all the nations and raise disciples for the kingdom. Jesus started with 12, then 70, then a couple of hundreds, then an army of disciples that spread the gospel to all nations – for which we are partakers of today. It all started with a vision. Joshua was a charismatic leader but he was unable to raise a generation of leaders and disciples after him. The vision however did not die, so God had to raise some other generation of leaders to take up the mantle. One other power tool the church needs to conquer the nations for Christ is influence – but the church barely has any. The church seems to have been polluted by the world, and rather than be led by the kingdom ways, the church seems to be trying to keep up. The church should be a stable of influence, be involved in the communities and have an impactful touch on the world. If the church is more involved with the nations – raising disciples for the kingdom, then our world would be a better

    We have to learn that right in the middle of fear and chaos, there is remedy. When hurricane Irma raged through Florida, the fear metrics were raised to the maximum, but through it all, we had a remedy – Jesus (who is an embodiment of peace in the storm. Mark 4:35). You may be surprised to know that “Irma” (the name of the Cat-5 hurricane that made land-fall in Florida Keys and later through the entire state of Florida from coast to coast) means the goddess of war. How co-incidental that the goddess of war had to bow to the God of peace – Jesus! In John 16:33, Jesus says – in me you may have peace because I have overcome the world. Jesus and his disciples were also in the middle of a storm off the shores of Galilee, but right before, during and after the storm – Jesus was there in the boat. While the disciples in the boat with Jesus were gripped with fear, Jesus was asleep – in peace; not because he didn’t care that they may perish, but he wanted them to see the storm with his kind of peaceful mind. He wanted them to

    Are we allowing the impact of our life circumstances to affect our relationship with God? At times we feel we are the only ones going through difficult situations and we think God may have forsaken us. Job passed through such life changing circumstance – so traumatizing that he was even asked to curse God and die, so he could be out of his misery quickly. Job was a right standing man with God by the way, and yet he was so battered and beat down that he lost EVERYTHING! When we get curved balls thrown our way, when we’re in the middle of winding roads, trying to find our ‘feeling fine’, getting bashed, pummeled by life and trying not to lose our mind, we have to: BELIEVE IN GOD (still) and ultimately TRUST HIM (even when we can’t see him at work). The three Hebrew men when they were going to be thrown into the burning furnace for refusing to bow down to the king’s idol, they stood their ground with an unwavering faith: Our God is mighty enough to save us from this fiery furnace, but even if he doesn’t – we shall not bow to your god! That’s
