“God loves you.” If we understood what this statement really meant, we would fall flat on our faces in worship day in and day out. But somehow it has lost its significance to us as the Church. We do not truly understand God’s love for us, and as a result, we lack the ability to pour out that same love upon His Church around us. This message calls us to a greater standard of love for one another as we walk in the love and tender mercies of God toward us. Delivered by: Eric Ludy
What would it look like for the Church to fight on the offensive, instead of the defensive? We often have a passive stance in bringing the Gospel to the world but effective evangelism happens when we use wisdom and creativity. Just as the Salvation Army brought the Gospel to the East End of London with an unexpected (and very effective!) tactic, this message inspires us to ask God for how we can proactively approach our generation. We all have been placed in this generation by God and are being built for such a time as this. Look out world! Delivered by: Eric Ludy
It has taken Eric Ludy four years of spiritual wrestling before he was ready to deliver this super-charged message. After all, within a modern Christian system that has been greatly undermined by the “Health, Wealth, and Prosperity Gospel,” no one in the “Biblically Conservative” camp really wants to touch this issue which lies right smack in the middle of the “Charismatic” and “Faith Movement” controversy. It’s high-time that the Church of Jesus Christ gain a Biblical and sound answer to this important issue of healing without blindly throwing the blanket answer of “cessation” over it. Was healing merely an outward seal upon the ministry of the Messiah and His apostles, or is it something that is intended by God to be included in our understanding of the Atonement? The answer to that question has far-reaching ramifications.
Fear controls the modern American Christian. And for most in the post-modern Church, this is non-chalantly accepted without a fight. But, the Biblical declaration of the healthy Christian soul does not allow for even a scrap of self-preserving fear, fretting, anxiety, and foreboding. It’s simply not intended to be a part of the Christian life. So, how do we deal with this great discrepancy? And how do we start living the lives of fearless faith that God intended us to be living?
Delivered by: Eric Ludy Few of us were ever trained how to handle our thoughts. In fact, most of us have considered ourselves victims to the random, strange, perverted, and otherwise demonic thoughts that float through our minds. But that should halt today. The thought life of a Christian is not the playground for the enemy, but the stage upon which the Truth of Jesus Christ can shine. Jesus has given the saints of God everything they need in order to take command over their thought lives. http://vimeo.com/32916519
