God Is on the Move [Video]

"How do these gospel movements which we long for and see happening in many places, begin? They often begin with one person, or one family."

While it can be challenging to see God at work, Mariah Nix (InnerCHANGE L.A.) can see places God is on the move, giving her vision and hope to keep praying and keep serving. Listen as she shares the story of her context, the gospel movement they see emerging, and the steps their team is taking to sow into that movement.

A Cause Worth Living For: Why We Go

I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.

Can you imagine this scene? What it would feel like to stand in this vast crowd? The indescribable joy of worshiping Jesus with brothers and sisters from every nation and tribe and people and language!

I first experienced a bit of this vision 34 years ago while attending a Cru missions conference for 18,000 college students. During one of the main sessions, Elisabeth Elliott challenged my heart when she said, “There is nothing worth living for, unless it is worth dying for.”

That the Unreached May Know: A Historic Gospel Movement Birthed Through Prayer

“Just as a plant may die for lack of watering, so may a genuine work of God die and rot for lack of prayer.” –James O. Fraser (1886–1938)

James Fraser, born in London, was an accomplished pianist and engineer, with a promising career ahead of him. A little booklet on the neglected multitudes who didn’t know Jesus challenged the direction his life was going.

From the President: Why We Do What We Do

The ultimate expression and realization of the Kingdom of God is when the redemptive reign and rule of Jesus happens in the lives of people …when the Kingdom breaks in and the highest and most excellent of the created order—human beings—become committed followers of the King of the Kingdom. While there are certainly other essential manifestations of the Kingdom, this remains the ultimate biblical centerpiece of the mission of God.  

A phrase that I like to use to describe this priority is that the Kingdom of God is never fully present unless people are becoming followers of the King.

When it’s all said and done, that’s what we are all about.

Our Best Offense Against the Enemy

“Full court press.” That’s a term I learned back in 7th grade when I joined my Jr. High School’s basketball team. At one of our pre-season practices our coach, Coach Gabe, divided us up into two teams, gave one team the ball and told them they would be playing offense in the next drill.

Then he took those of us who were going to be playing defense, and told us that when he blew the whistle and the ball went into play, we were to cover our opponents “man to man.” We were to rush up on them and stick to them like glue, wherever they went. We were to apply aggressive pressure on them throughout the court, not just by our basket. We were not to surrender any territory. Instead we were to make them fight for every inch of the court.

The Power of the Gospel in Real Life

One of my favorite verses is John 17:3, “Now this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” This verse speaks to the deepest part of my heart because I long to experience all that Jesus has for me and is to me, not only after I go to heaven, but also here and now on earth. This is the heart of the gospel: to know God and his Son Jesus Christ in an intimate way that transforms us from the inside out, conforming us to the image of Christ for the benefit of others.

In order for this transformation to happen, I believe we need to recognize that God wants to be an intimate part of every aspect of our lives—in every relationship, at work, when we play sports, and in all we say and do.

The Dying Become Disciple Makers

When our central African leaders arrived at the location where they had been asked to take seven evangelists through a Disciple Making Movement (DMM) training, they were in for a surprise. The house they had been directed to was filled with men and women on pallets on the floor who were sick and dying—38 of them.
