Article: Living Out the Great Commission – Donovan Littlejohn — November 20th, 2014

“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen”                                        -Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV I have always been compelled by last words of Jesus to His disciples, and the weight and importance they carry; “Go therefore…”, and the very clear call to action those two words instill. But then the counterpoint to that is seeing how few people actually “Go” from the body. Understand, I am not condemning in any way, shape or form, but hoping to shape a thought based on my own experiences.   Throughout my early years pursuing Christ, the overarching teaching I encountered concerning the Great Commission always made it seem as if this was only and exclusively for […]

Article: Soliloquy of the Song — Karissa Gray — June 3, 2014

The book of Song of Solomon is a beautiful story of love and desire between a woman, the Shulamite, and a king. The Shulamite and the King are in love, but a time of testing comes to the Shulamite when the king asks her to go somewhere where she fears to go. She tells him to go without her but, later on, she realizes her mistake and goes to find the king. When she finds him she is determined to never make that mistake again. When the king comes to her once more, she rises to go with him, but suddenly she finds he has gone again. Determined to not be offended, she searches for the one she loves in a time of great darkness and tribulation. Even when she is beaten, bruised, shamed and mocked she continues her search for her love, and strengthens herself by remembering who the King is, and how he is better than any other lover. We see her justified as she finds the king, and her heart of love […]

Article: Cultivating a Watchful Spirit — Jerry Marek — April 11, 2014

“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” -Matthew 24:42 NKJV Throughout my early years pursuing Christ, the prevailing teaching I encountered concerning the second coming of Christ was very apathetic. My teachers emphasized our inability to know the day of the Lord, while also claiming our energy should not be spent preparing for His coming. Biblically, the call is quite the opposite from what many of my teachers have emphasized. Jesus teaches us to watch because we do not know the hour of His coming. His appearing is most certainly coming! With every passing day this devotion called watchfulness becomes more essential. I for one am contending for the day when it becomes a reality that the majority of Jesus’ disciples are hearing His words and taking great care to obey them. If cultivating a watchful spirit requires us to know His Word, then we must also become a student of the Scriptures. The signs in the earth only point to the coming of Christ in context to the […]

Article — Dark Nights and God’s Ways — Gary Wiens — March 13, 2014

In the journey that God has each of us on – the journey toward intimacy and authority as the Bride of Christ – it is essential to understand the strategies of God, particularly during those seasons when His presence seems hard to find. The primary promise of God, spoken to the Shulamite in Song of Solomon 2:4, is that His banner of love is over us for the entire journey. In other words, everything He does and everything He permits is about loving us, and drawing us further into His grace and power. This truth seems the most difficult to grasp when His immediate presence is withdrawn from us for a season, and we experience a “dark night” of wondering, longing, and searching. These “nights” happen for several reasons – the first being compromise in obedience. This is the one most easily understood, but God does not withdraw because He is angry or rejecting us, but rather to draw us back to Himself, to woo us further along the way into His fullness and love.
