To abide or not to abide, that is the question!

In our contemporary church experience we have fallen into following habitual or traditional rules and been lulled to think that they equal full participation in Body life. Sunday morning Sunday Scholol and church, church again on Wed, Night. Give a tithe and go to a weekly Bible study. What else could God ask? Right? No, sorry, wrong! Way wrong! We are called to walk in The Spirit. We think of a “walk” as something that we do occasionally, but the Bible means something far greater. Our “walk” is our 24/7 life – all of it. All of it in The Spirit of Jesus. Jesus’ life in us, as us, through us. Not segregated or broken into parts, but so integrated that we are totally “leavened”. In a loaf of bread there is no part where the leaven...

Are You Called?

“For we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NKJ) Calling. God’s calling. What is it and what does it mean to be called according to His purpose? And what does it mean specifically in the lives of those of us who are part of The C12 Group? (WWW.C12GROUP.COM) Let’s start by a general discussion and definition of “calling”. Calling is often thought of as something that only happens when a Christian “surrenders” to the “call” to the professional ministry (i.e., to be a pastor, missionary, etc.). This is a cultural misunderstanding of the term. While it does apply to the offices within the Church (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher – Eph 4:11), it is by no...

The early response has been hugely gratifying. Readers have shared their encouragement and enjoyment of the account of my journey from agnosticism to faith to today. I am excited to share today that I Radical is now available on Kindle for $3.99. For you Kindle users jusst click on the Amazon button and select Kindle. Be blessed! Yours in Christ,...

Rising From the Ashes! Really!

In I, Radical I make the statement that “I will always have all I need to do all God wants.” What He wants is His will in and for our lives. Over the years some have questioned such a bold and starightforward claim. I realize that it is bold but the fact is that it is based on two pillars; one fairly reliable, and the other totally certain. The “fairly reliable” pillar is the testimony of personal experience and that of many others. It has been my experience for over 40 years but that’s not a really long time and I’m not at the end of my race yet. God may leave me hanging out to dry and I may be shown to be a fool. But I’m not in the least bit worried about that. I have read the biographies of many others who have trusted God and their testimonies...
