Following Christ

There is always a “cost” to following Jesus.

For most of us in the Western World, it is merely the cost of obedience, but to others, it can mean life or death.

I used to think that the western world had it “easy” until I went to a Mission Trip to Vanuatu. There, a woman said to me that she prays for “us” (Westerners) because of the hardship we face every day with the choices and temptations that we face in life, that changed the way I think.

Reading Deuteronomy this morning, there are so many degrees and laws because of the temptations the Israelites faced to sin.

The Bible reiterates over and over that, if we were chosen to be His, then we need to be consciously obedient to bring honour to God (1 Peter 1:2; Ephesians 1:4; Titus 2:14)

My prayer this morning is that we will seek God first, to walk beside Him always, and glorify Him daily because from our obedience, comes His blessings, blessings of eternal life – just as He promised

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
