I am so looking forward to being back at church in London this Sunday! There definately is no place like home, and whenever we travel Ali & I cannot help being overwhelmed with a sense of deep gratitude for the awesome people and leaders God has given us as partners in His cause here in London. On the 4th of September Ali & I celebrate 14 YEARS SINCE ARRIVING IN LONDON with our two back-packs and a vision! I can honestly say that we are right now more excited at what is and what lies ahead than ever before, and if you are part of Every Nation London then I want to encourage you and challenge you to give your very best to this vision in the next amazing season.
For the next 2 or 3 Sundays I will be preaching while (for short periods!) running on a treadmill! The message is from Galatians 5 which reminds us of the freedom we have in Christ, but warns us of some dangerous substances which promise to “enhance our spiritual performance” but actually end up disqualifying us from the race. The three most dangerous “drugs” I want to test and expose are “The Law”, “Lust” (Don’t think just sexual here), and “Licentiousness” – as the passage says in verse 9: “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” If you want to run free to your destiny, and you dont want to end up with a “christianity on the treadmill going no-where” then you have to get “clean” from these three. You don’t need them in any way, because God has some awesome legal alternatives! Its time to get off the treadmill and running free in Christ, so get rid of those drugs and lets GO – there a destiny to fulfill!
