red letters

13 09 2008

i am really going to make a valid effort to be more consistant guys and gals so here we go..

started a new study recently with the young adults called “red letters” and we have been studying the sayings of Jesus.

its amazing the power in the red letters. read them sometime.

this week we started our first annual “search 08” three days of fasting one service and one night of prayer and worship… its amazing how fasting really changes the atmosphere in everything you do, the clarity, the sounds, the noise, things become so much clearer. Probably the greatest two nights of power embrace community has ever seen. amazing altars, young adults weeping for God weeping for the lost! just amazing!

the bible shows that Jesus fasted after God had told him how pleased he was in him.. he had just received favor, and then he fasted.. we always hear fasting for a breakthrough but Jesus fasted after the breakthrough… why? because he knew coming up would be one of his greatest battles… being led into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

after his breakthrough the battle came so he fasted “after the favor before the fight ” because he knew the power that he was about to need!

red letters there is power truth forgiveness and correction in the red letters…





love is the missing link!

11 04 2008

over the past month at embrace we have expirenced truly amazing growth at embrace.. growth with more consitant people than ever… but more importantly growth IN people. we have been doing this study called “linked” we have been discussing the things in life Jesus linked to and how it applies to our everyday walk.

tonight was love.. True love has been the missing link in not only society but in churches (in general)

Jesus is crying out for us to just truly be intimate with him and fall in love with the things he is in love with.. but in order for us to know his heart we must be linked with love..

love is intimacy and we truly understand the heart of God when we become intimate with him!

Love is the foundation of every relationship, every marriage.

 

Love requires commitment.

 

Love will defeat the enemy and give you victory in every circumstance.

 

Love is passion

Love is intimacy

 

Love has been the foundation of our salvation.

 

Love in its greatest moment has linked us to eternity..

love is .. intimacy.. and intimacy is more than physical touch .. intimacy requires time, listening, and blind faith.
