How to really see the Spiritual Power in our lives as we have
seen in the Bible... front to end.
Over my decades of living, now at the last leg of my life,
I have been a student of the Bible, and around other
What has been my desire is show people in a
simple process, how to live life as a mission
and live in the power of the Spirit we see in the Bible.
All through my life I have seen the emphasis on
getting saved... go to heaven, how to avoid hell.
But living in the Spirit goes beyond that.
What He has for us is something to do,
the Lord has a mission for us.
Living life without a sizzling mission in us,
we go through life aimlessly,
going one direction or another, and not live for
what we are cut out for. The Lord gives us a
vision of what life may look like in Him and
living in a mission that drives us from morning
until night every day, and even getting up in the
middle of the night to think about it, pray about.
Here's, in my long life journey, what I have found as
the key components to live in God's vibrancy
and power, and impact the world around us.
God has something for us to do.
First of all as Jesus told the disciples in the
end of the Gospel of John, feed my sheep.
Our mission is about that in one shape or form.
Feed others. To bring the vibrancy of Jesus
to them and play a role with them in seeing it happen.
Our mission may take on many pictures,
but it is one set up for us by His Spirit.
Second is faith.
We must believe God made us for a purpose,
and what we see may seem like a
humongous picture in our minds, but He,
the Spirit is there to help us.
We learn and grow as we build faith.
Do the following and it will build faith.
The three cornerstones to live what we are
called to do in His Spirit.
Adding to the above, we need to renew our minds.
To live in the mind of Christ and live in our minds
in harmony with the Spirit.
Our minds are conditioned by the world,
it needs to be transformed into the Spirit.
When we do that, the Spirit speaks to us and
gives us His Power, beyond our own. But coming into
the mind of God, Jesus is the first step.
This is done by inundating our minds with the Scriptures,
daily Bible reading plan and not just knowing the Scriptures,
but being the Scriptures. That we condition our minds
to be synonymous with the mind of God,
becoming compatible with the mind of Christ.
The other is hearing from the Lord...
gaining His Spiritual intelligence.
God tells us, when we are in Him in Spirit, the deep things
of God, the secrets of man, and strategies on how to
handle every thing we face.
This happens through Prayer...
that is in constant conversation with God
and His Spirit. When in one Mind with His Spirit,
it flows into us quite naturally without a lot of effort.
In these times of Meditation in Him, we hear His Voice
and know what He is directing us to do.
I call it Spiritual Intelligence, that we have the
Intelligence of God working through us.
The third of the big three key areas is having
These are those doing the same, we talk to very frequently
and are constantly sharing things back and forth.
When we are in this relationship with someone else
who daily renews their mind through the Word, and
is constantly seeking God on all matters,
seeking His Intelligence, and living through His power...
when we unite with just one or two others like this,
this ignites a powder keg of power through what we ask.
By combining our talents and resources for the mission
on each heart, we see exponential power, 10 times and
So, it is living your mission, building faith:
renewing our minds (a mental transformation into
His Spirit and ways),
acquiring His insights, intelligence and working in His Power,
coming in agreement with others of the same mind in Spirit.
This is the core of it.
We then advance it.
By cultivating our relationship bound in love
and mission we see power increase as our bond in love
with each other increases more and more. This bond of
love super-charges everything.
We find others doing the same and expand this
Spirit Network that God is creating as we connect with
others in the same mind.
As we do this we see Spiritual gifts emerging in all we do.
We become smarter and more powerful in Spirit. Gifts
of a supernatural quality blossom when we all grow
together in unity. Being One, as God is one with Jesus
and Jesus is one with all of us.
To summarize, it takes living in mission, God's will for us.
Believing it will happen and seeing it mature through
Bible study, transforming the mind;
prayer, gaining Spiritual intelligence and His power;
connecting with a few who are also living in His Mind.
Cultivating strong relationships in Spirit... to the degree
we do this is the degree we see His Power at work
Then networking with others in their mission
as we help each other.
It's all a heart thing... us with God and us with
each other in the Spirit.
Behold, He will never leave us nor forsake us.
He lives in us and we live through His love and power.
All this is explained in more detail at
Living Your Magnificent Mission... the online course.
And I am available to help guide and assist in
the whole process. As I have learned how to
partner with others in all aspects of above.
In my lifetime, I say with great confidence,
in doing this you will see a resurgence of
power in your life. You will see the Spirit at
work through you in a way you have never seen before.
