A community joining God to restore the beauty in all things.
Day in the Sun: Battling Our Spiritual Fog
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
Creating a Culture of Holiness Part 1
From the believer’s personal pursuit of holiness and sharing the good news whilst navigating life, oftentimes we encounter a clash between vision and the reality of culture in the scope of the larger community. Discipleship extends from ourselves to the pursuit of holiness of the community as a whole, but how can we create a culture together that aligns with the mission of the kingdom? In this two-part series, “Creating a Culture of Holiness,” Dr. Sammy examines how the church can reconcile the collision of a disparate culture and the vision that Christ has for the church by paying attention to the wind of the spirit, identify our cultural silos, and center our lives around a community culture that seeks to do the work of the Lord.
Q5: What is My Plan?
Dr. Calvin Brown serves as a co-pastor for Destiny Church and a leadership partner for Arrow Leadership, an organization dedicated to the global development of Christian leadership. In part 4 of his “Q5” series, Dr. Brown helps us consider the question of “What is My Plan?” for the vision and calling that God may have in our lives. Through collaboration in prayer with the Father and a four-step strategy sourced from the book of Nehemiah to help us execute God's plans through us, Dr. Brown leads us through a macroscopic and practical framework for seeing God's work unfold in our lives.
The Singular Aim of Discipleship
Sometimes the greatest enemy to the spiritual life is not evil, but good.
Lesson: The singular aim of discipleship is the sovereignty of the individual being fully surrendered to the sovereignty of Christ.
Q5: What is My Dream?
Dr. Calvin Brown serves as a co-pastor for Destiny Church and a leadership partner for Arrow Leadership, an organization dedicated to the global development of Christian leadership. In the third installment of his “Q5” series, Dr. Brown discusses the question that follows naturally after reflecting on our stories: “What is my dream?” It is often at the disruptive moments in our lives that we pause and encounter the Father’s holiness and brilliance, and we learn just how wide the chasm is between His perfection and our own brokenness. Dr. Brown invites us to pay close attention to these moments where we learn more about who God is and who we are, for by doing so we can hear more clearly where God is calling each one of us to go, and see how each of our stories is a meaningful, precious part of the glorious narrative that He is writing.
When Pursuing Holiness Becomes Tenable Rather Than Just a Cliche
In the Christian journey, the pursuit of holiness can often feel like a lofty ideal or an impossible pipe dream of a cliche. We tend to believe that a dichotomy exists between those few who are chosen to champion the gospel and the inherently mediocre masses disqualified from pursuing God for various reasons. However, the story we find in the New Testament is not a highlight reel of the accomplishments of so-called spiritual giants, but rather a pursuit to be Christ-like that points to the one and only hero of our stories. Holiness is a daily choice to surrender to the Father despite life’s detours, twists, and turns, and a pursuit of progression towards the grace that makes us grow closer to the image of Jesus.
