Double Minded

Categories // Blog

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:6-8)

 

Unbelief cannot receive because it does not believe. When we don’t fully believe in God we cannot properly receive from God. If we don’t receive what we are asking for from God we will wind up disappointed in God. A double-minded man cannot receive from God because of unbelief. The reason a double-minded man does not receive from God is also he doesn’t have the mentality to steward that which God truly desires to give. Faith comes from the heart but being double-minded is a head issue. The head and the heart must work together to receive from God and steward that which comes from God. Whatever ever we receive from God is for people because he loves them. What God whispers in our ear should be shouted from the rooftops. What receive in private should be declared privately.

Communion and Creativity

Categories // Blog

For the last few months I often have had a re-occurring subject on my mind. The subject is creativity, especially relating to the musical portion of our church services. As a traveling worship leader, I visit many different churches. So this is not directed at any one group, but rather a trend I see in many different churches ranging from very conservative to very charismatic. Often I see a lack of creativity in worship, which causes people to copy other people who are more famous or well known. Now I realize, to some extent being influenced by people you admire is unavoidable, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, what I observe often tends to be excessive. It strips people of their own style and personality, and causes them to abandon who they are to copy someone else.

Encouraging yourself in the Lord

This blog entry is an excerpt from our new ministry manual "Listen.Learn.Obey"

"And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire; And had taken the women captives, that were therein: they slew notany, either great or small, but carried them away, and went on their way."

The Justice Issue

Written by // Adam LiVecchi Categories // Blog

 As you search through the scriptures, you will find the issue of justice from the book of Genesis all the way through Revelation. In the pro-life movement, there is a common phrase that states, "social justice starts in the womb". We believe this to be absolutely true, however it doesn't end there.
