This message is about learning to humble ourselves before God and accept that we are in desperate need of his guidance in our lives. If we abide in Jesus than it will be impossible for us to not bear good fruit. This message is also about having a pure heart before God through the example of Nathaniel who was one of the apostles of Jesus.

We live in a society where we are all in such a rush to get to the place we need to go and check off all of the items that we have on our to do list. What we often don't realize is that our busy schedules and routines cause us to become completely blind to those around us and those that really need our time and attention. We often times trample over those around us because of our busy schedules. In order to really be the Church body that Jesus called us to be we have learn to welcome disruption and be willing to stop everything that we are doing to bring that one sheep back to safety. This is what Jesus modeled when He walked the earth and the way we should be reverently treating those around us.

www.lotwministries.org Have you ever wondered what it looks like to have the mind of Christ that Paul spoke about in 1 Corinthians? After each believer commits his life to the Lord there is a process that they have to go through to become fully formed in Christ. This video discusses the process involved in allowing Christ to purify your life and also what it looks like to grow in your intimacy or spiritual union with God.

This message defines real courage and shows how it is more than just a feeling and doesn't just come when you have an adrenaline rush or an instinctual reaction in a dangerous situation. Courage is not the absence of fear but it is facing things in life that come up even when you are afraid and everything inside you wants to run away. Also a person of courage is able to face correction and see bad things about themselves without crumbling or making excuses so they don't have to look at it and change. God calls us to be these people who hearken to His voice and do His will no matter what and are able to face great adversity without breaking rank. He wants us to be open to see the darkness in our hearts and not run from the Light but be lovers of His correction. This kind of courage can only come from God and takes great discipline and much prayer and is what brings us into union with Him.

This message is about having spiritual integrity with God and believing the things He tells you over what you see in the natural or what your intellect tells you. It also comes through doing what God says vs. doing what pleases man or looks good externally. For example, it is right to pay your bills on time but if is at the expense of what God is telling you to do then you are in sin. Jesus wants us to lay down our lives and desires and not put any obligations or agendas above doing his will. We have true spiritual integrity with Him when we live this way and He can trust us as faithful servants who are His ambassadors and devoted to Him.

This message is a call for other people to have that same heart and give everything to God.

From the day we are born until the day we die we only have two choices in life. Are you going to spend your life serving yourself or are you going to live out your days serving God? In this message we make reference to the Church of Philadelphia as they were a church that modeled a community who was laying down their lives for God. They made one of the most crucial decisions that every Christian has to face in their walk with God. They chose to lay down their lives and die to self now, instead of being lukewarm like the Church to follow in the book of Revelation, Laodicea. Those who choose to lay down their lives for God will find that the Lord uses trials and tribulations to form them into His pure spotless Bride. God will never put those living for Him through trials unless those trials serve to refine you and bring healing into your life. Those who decide to serve self will be under the spirit of this world and their discipline will come the hard way, not through the gentle way that the Lord disciplines those seeking to serve Him. One way or another everyone will have to choose what system to be under. What are you going to decide? Serve God or serve self?

When life's troubles come your way it is easy to put the blame on those around you and project your faults onto them. When we do this we are being spiritual laziness and end up hurting those around us, while also failing to make any of the necessary changes needed to be right with the Lord. There are real consequence to spiritual laziness and when we fail to see what is really at stake we end up lacking the urgency needed to wake up and take a honest look at ourselves.

This message is about knowing who you are in God and being everything that He has called you to be. It is an encouragement to keep running the race and fighting to be intimate with God instead of having a "What have you done for me lately" attitude. Being diligent to have that heart and to do the things God calls you to do will transform you into someone who reflects Christ's nature and into everything that He has called you to be so you will be wheat worthy and fit for Heaven.

This message stresses the importance of meditation and how it enriches our prayer life. If we meditate on the goodness of God and the good things we see in other people our lives will be full and we will be closer to God and to everyone around us. Meditation also helps you to have the resolve to overcome obstacles in your life and to enforce the God-reality of the truths He has told you.It is the key to pushing out all of the negativity that the devil brings and to keep a positive attitude. Our prayer lives are not complete without it.
