Knowing Jesus, and becoming like Him, doesn’t happen by chance. There are intentional practices we can build into our lives – things that we see modelled by Jesus – to help this transformation become real.
You’ll never find the words ‘And Jesus ran…” in the Bible. Jesus walks with us. Sometimes He talks. Sometimes He listens. Sometimes He enjoys being with us with no words spoken – like hanging out with the best of friends that you don’t need to perform for.
King David was Israel’s most beloved King, with a passionate God-centered heart. And yet even David knew that he regularly needed to allow God to conduct some heart monitoring – and inevitably, some heart surgery.
Pastor David Gentille explores the effect of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit in our healing. “He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” (Matt 8:17) “The spirit gives life to our mortal bodies.” (Rom 8:11)
Ever felt like you wanted to run away and hide, feeling discouraged, disillusioned, frustrated or hurt? You may have thought you need to find something or someone that could help you. Before David was appointed King of Israel, his life was in danger so he ran to hide in a cave, but this cave became a recovery centre for many. The reality is maybe your place of refuge will be someone else’s place of recovery. When you step out you see what God will do for you!
