Early last week I heard the words "Grass Roots Christianity" in my Spirit.  The Lord has been speaking to me that He doesn't want our Christian walk to be complicated.  He desires that we take steps forward, steps of faith.  Grass roots is not about special buildings or ceremonies, it is a church of the body of Christ.  Its simple FOLLOW JESUS, love Him and love others.  He wants His followers to get back to pure faith.  Nothing added.  When we get back to the basics we leave rituals behind and it's all about being intimate with Him and resting in Him.  
Simple faith can move mountains.  Faith as a grain of mustard seed.  With God all things are possible.  He is just asking us to believe and you will receive.  Pure faith is about loving God and loving people that's the simplicity of the gospel of Christ, ordinary people living extraordinary lives, focused on being led by the Spirit and encouraging others, ensuring everyone is valued and God's love is shared.  

Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, He died for us and rose from the grave so that we could experience resurrection life.  It's simple, follow Him and believe.  Set your sights on things above, live for today and know that He has the map of your life planned right from the beginning.  He is the substance of life and He is our highest aspiration.  Love you Jesus. 
Blessings and love

A new painting called "Gaining Ground" - Taking Territory for Jesus. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has prevailed.  He has already won the war. He is causing His people to make progress, to advance, to gain spiritual ground.  

No advance can be made without Him.  To gain ground we use God's word and that is when He opens things up to us. Time spent in His word is advancing us on our spiritual journey.  We're picking up speed and pressing forward to the goal. 

Paul explains this in the scripture in Philippians 3:14 

I press on toward the goal to win (supreme and heavenly) prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward (AMP)

To lose it all is gain.

Philippians 3:8

Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege( the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him(of perceiving and recognising and understanding Him more fully and clearly).  For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One)(AMP)

 Consider everything loss compared to knowing Jesus.  Leave the past behind and reach for those things that are still ahead of you.  Focus and pursue the goal of the heavenly call of God.  You're on His winning side.

Blessings and love,
