We preachers must remember the power is in the gospel, not in all of our well-intended long winded preaching.
We must cease trying to get the Bible to live in our categories and begin to move ourselves into the category of the Bible.
We often develop strategies, objectives, plans, outcomes, and metrics to replace our trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
False prophets make good strategists: They start with the leadership, because influenced and compromised leaders can cripple communities.
The most typical pattern of Holy Spirit-commissioning is to simply "send people on their way" and to give direction along the journey.
Nothing quenches the Holy Spirit more and self-disqualifies a person from the game like the categories of "called to ministry," and "just a layperson."
We do not possess the power of God. The power of God possesses us.
True faithfulness in prayer has nothing to do with outcomes and everything to do with love.
The big takeaway in the apostolic school of prayer is this one: Do not ever give up!
Persecution is the enemy's best effort to defeat God, but it usually takes on the opposite effect.
