Reading the Bible Through the Eyes of The Holy Spirit

Experiencing the Holy Spirit in the Everyda

Last Wednesday I taught on what it means to read the Bible through the eyes of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Inspiration and Illumination of the Scriptures. What that means is the Word of God is alive, active, and relevant for our everyday lives. We must encounter the Bible with the understanding that God desires to constantly speak to us through Scripture.

If you want to learn more about this topic, I encourage you to watch the teaching video below.

Resting in God’s Presence


I think we, as a society have forgotten how to rest. In fact, I think some of us have never been taught or shown how to rest. The reality is that our lives are busy. We live in a modern world where busyness is part of the norm. But in our modern world, we have moved from busy to hurried sickness.

Hurried sickness is a phrase that originated with Dallas Willard who recently passed away. For those of you who have picked up on it, the book we are reading – Soul Keeping is basically everything he learned from his own personal life and being mentored by Dallas Willard.

Too often we are suffering from hurried sickness. Our souls are panting and sorely in need of rest. Busy is an outward condition, a condition of the body. Busyness is inevitable. Hurried is an inner condition, a condition of the soul.

The solution is for us to balance rest and activity. We need to balance activity and rest or there will be a sickness in the soul.

Who Am I? Living In Our Kingdom Identity



What does the topic of identity have to do with the subject and title of the course I am currently teaching?  It actually has a very strong connection to the course. When we talk about the health of our soul and exhibiting a healthy Christian life, knowing who God made us is critical to the our thoughts, feelings, and actions. When we fail to understand our true identity in Christ it will effect what we think about ourselves, what we feel from our heart, and the choices we make.

We are continually forgetting who we are in Christ and filling that void by placing our identity in pretty much anything else. This leads us to often ask,“Who am I?” The question is far- reaching, belief- revealing, life- shaping, and identity- forming. How you answer determines your identity and your testimony. Tragically, few people— even few Bible- believing, Jesus- loving Christians— rightly answer that question.

You may not realize it, but being made in the image of God plays a key role in everything you do in life.  To learn more about this, please watch the teaching video below.
