Rob Norman: Worshipping God
A true worshipper is someone who has surrendered their life to Jesus and chosen to live before him transparently and faithfully. This is a consecrated life; a life that is dedicated and set apart to God and His purposes.
Rob Norman: Loved By God
Many Christians don’t know the love of the Father from first-hand experience. We may have some intellectual understanding of The Father’s Love and we may have even experienced His presence at different times, but it is still possible we don’t walk in the reality of The Father’s love.
Rob Norman: Intimacy With God
As we get intimate with God we should expect to be overwhelmed by his uncloaked presence; whether that means a full-on Theophany, Christophany or that our our eyes and heart are opened to the unseen world isn’t so important, what is important is that God reveals Himself to us.
Rob Norman: Commitment | A Fulfilled Life
Real fulfillment can only be found in Christ. Yet, discipleship caries a cost that we measure by questions like “what will it cost me if I do this?”. We may not say that ‘out-loud’, but subconsciously we ‘do the maths’ in terms of time, money and energy. What we don’t often consider is that non-discipleship also carries a cost that can be measured by answering the question “what will it cost if I don’t do this?”
Rob Norman: Commitment | The Cost Of Commitment
The parables of the ‘hidden treasure’ and ‘the pearl of great price’ in Matthew 13:44-46 are about God’s absolute commitment to His people. When we understand the magnitude of God’s love for us it becomes natural that when Jesus said “follow me” to his disciples the invitation meant following him all the way into ministry!
Rob Norman: Commitment | Three Myths About Commitment
The word “commitment” dials up all sorts of anxieties in us. As soon as we hear someone asking us to commit our minds automatically begin looking for an ‘out’, an excuse that precludes us from committing “too heavily”. Commitment, however, is at the very heart of following Jesus.
Corey Akeley: Introduction To ‘Demonstrating The Kingdom’
Do you have a growing desire to experience God in even more tangible ways? Was it God’s intent that everyone get to play in His kingdom? The answer is most definitely yes. And it starts with knowing your true identity in Christ and the importance of building up your confidence as a believer. Knowing who you were made to be ensures that you do not operate out of a motive of performance, for approval, or broken identity needs, but out of a secure identity as a child of God.
Rob Norman: What Is The Gospel | Justice Fulfilled
The Old Testament provides us with a view of Justice that stands apart from all other writings of antiquity. Its pages reveal account after account of consequential justice being executed against a back-sliding Israel because of her breaches against God’s just Law.
