SET ANDREW BRUNSON FREE

We need one minute of your time and a signature to help a friend of our church family who is in great need.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND SHARE!

American Pastor Andrew Brunson has languished in prison in Turkey since October 2016, falsely charged with “membership in an armed terrorist organization” despite the Turkish authorities having no evidence against him. Pastor Andrew is a U.S. citizen from North Carolina who (with his family) has lived peacefully in Turkey since 1993.


The White House petition for Andrew has collected 19,005 signatures. We need to reach 100,000 signatures by March 8 on the White House petition concerning Andrew, or the petition will be disabled and archived.
The American Center for Law and Justice, Samaritans Purse, Pastor Saeed Abadini and many other organizations are backing this cause. In addition, Jay Sekulow of The American Center for Law and Justice is arguing for Andrew’s release before the UN today.

MY HEART IS BEING DEEPENED

On Saturday we came to the end of this series of “Deeper Heart Days”. We truly thank God for all that He has achieved during these three Saturdays. Many have testified to fresh revelation, greater freedom, and real heart changes taking place.

We passionately believe that our hearts are the centre and source of all we are, say, and do. They determine what we long for, what we pursue, and what we hold back or hide from. Prov. 4:23 tells us to keep watch over our hearts above everything else we do, because all of life comes from them. God told the prophet Samuel that He doesn’t focus on outward appearances like human beings do, but He looks into what is going on in the inside; in the heart of a person. Jesus told a story explaining four types of heart condition. He said to His followers that unless they grasped the meaning of this story, none of the others would make sense to them.

Let’s continue to allow God to probe our hearts, and then to heal, soften, and clean them up. We all need this, whoever we might think we are.

SONS AND DAUGHTERS

imageBy Jean Packer

Peter Jackson from Toronto, shared with us a wonderful encounter where he found himself looking into the eyes of God his father. He saw Gods eyes gazing at him with such inexpressible delight and unconditional love that astounded him and totally ‘undid’ him. This experience has transformed his life entirely. He has never been the same again and he now longs for the body of Christ to realise their full inheritance and walk as true sons and daughters of God on this earth. Peter carries one message from God. In his own words, he plays a one string guitar, and it’s always in tune!

Peter reminded us that our father delights in each one of us just as we are. His love is unconditional because all of the conditions were met by Jesus. He loves the worst of the worst in a wild and reckless love and we can allow ourselves to be wrecked by His love. Wow! How do we do this? So often we live under the law of sin and death, comparing and competing with one another and finding we fall short. This is shame based. We are either living out of a blessing or a curse. Galatians says we are one in Jesus. This is the truth but do we believe it? It’s easier to believe the bad stuff about ourselves. We cannot live out of two opinions as this is double-mindedness. Only God’s opinion is the truth and good news has to be freely received.

God wants to work in us from the inside out and turn us upside down. We are His church and are not our own as we’ve been bought with a great price and God is only interested in our complete transformation. Religion is working from the outside in. Christianity is working from the inside out. Peter admonished us to let God out!

God wants to give us His power to glorify Him in this world but he can only give it through humble hearts. Power is dangerous in the hands of an orphan. Humility is the currency of the kingdom of Heaven and Heaven is a kingdom of honour. Jesus prayed that “all of them may be one” He went to the cross to give us redemption, but not just redemption but also adoption and placed as an older son to the father. He has brought us ALL of the way in. We are co-heirs with Christ! It’s not adoption papers but a bonding – the spirit of adoption.

We are so thankful for the truth that has been brought to our hearts over the weekend. Peter has urged us to be as vulnerable as we are able so that we become all who we are called to be. We must remember that God never allows us to be tested more that we can bear. We can let an avalanche of grace comes down the mountain to surround us. Lets step out in faith and risk it. Open up the gates of Heaven so that the King of Glory will come in!

I WENT TO A STRIP CLUB

Such a great article. Thought provoking and necessary. Thank you for sharing.

just a jesus follower

strip clubA while back I was asked by a group of pastor’s wives to go with them to strip clubs.

That sentence alone sounds strange. But hang with me.

At first I was a little hesitant. And not for reasons you might think.

I love people. Especially ones who are broken; it’s part of my calling. But, given what I’ve walked through, I know how fragile broken people can be.

And I know how insensitive the church can be.

And I was uneasy.

But, these weren’t just any pastors wives.

They had a vision.

One that longed to love on women that society had thrown aside.

It reminded me a lot of Jesus.

So, I jumped on it.

Their plan was to visit these clubs once a month to deliver a meal and gift baskets. I joined them the first night and I’ll be honest, I had NO IDEA what to expect.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

image.jpeg

Like Father, like son and daughter. That’s God’s desire for us – to know Him as He is, and to be like Him. Jesus lived with a secure identity as Son of the Father. His desire is for us to live in the security of Sonship too. This weekend conference will take us deeper in the Father’s love.

It will be a pleasure to welcome Peter Jackson in Golden Valley Church, from Toronto, in May as our speaker.
