Never Falling Silent

It is not a hidden fact that the Gospel can change lives. Even more so, when it changes lives, it also has the ability to change culture. This transforming Gospel is found the Bible. In his sermon, Tom Patton once said, “Many people handle the Bible in the same way a child might handle a loaded gun. When they discover it, they are attracted to the shine of it. They are enamored by the style of its lines and they pick it up. They play with it and they point it at other people, not realizing that they hold in their hands an instrument with the power to either save life or to take it.”If lives and culture are to be changed, the Gospel needs to be shared in its entirety. You cannot share about the remarkable love that God has for us without acknowledging the sin of mankind He came to die for.

Love Malta: The Gospel In Action

When you picture a “prostitute,” what comes to mind: Tight, revealing clothing that screams sleazy? Someone so far from God that it would take more than a miracle to save? It’s funny how wrong we can be and how much God loves all his children, regardless of the lives they live. Going into the Red Light District of Malta in September of 2017, Rachelle Brewer wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It wasn’t until she let God take control that she was able to bring a ray of hope into the life of a young woman named Sonja.

The words we say and the actions we do, however big or small, are able to change and make an impact on our world.

Underestimate: The Power of Reaching Youth

It is our job as the Church to reach the youth

 

That day God laid on our heart the Z8 Initiative. An initiative to awaken a world changing movement to make Jesus known. Known as Generation Z, those born after 1995, they mostly make up the middle and high schoolers of our nation. It’s said that they have an 8 second attention span. However, at LifeLight we believe it’s not an 8 second attention span, but rather an 8 second filter; a filter that searches for truth and love.

World Changers: Making an Impact

When you think of historic leaders who have made an impact, who comes to mind? Is it Martin Luther King? Mother Teresa? What about Billy Graham? While all of these were famous faces of history, a key individual that popped into my mind was none other than the brilliant Thomas Edison. Why Thomas Edison you might ask? Edison was an inventor who, with little recognition received today, changed the world.

“He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed!” If you stepped foot in church Easter Sunday, it is very likely you heard these words and even said them multiple times yourself. The Christian faith comes to an amazing climax at Easter time; from Maunday-Thursday to Good Friday to Resurrection Sunday, the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is put on display for the world.

Chrisitianity: the Biblical Counterculture

Pastor David Platt once said, “We chase all these things, thinking that we’re free. But we are blind to our own bondage. For in all our running to serve ourselves, we’re actually rebelling against the only One who can satisfy our souls.” These Counterculture efforts resulted in the deterioration of the standard Christian values and morality that had been held for years

The 21st Century World

When I think on the last two decades and where we are today, I think back to Disney childhood tv shows and movies such as the Back to the Future series. These features depict what was thought that the 21st century would look like: “High Tech” electronics, time machines, and weird space-looking clothes? Although there has been a lot of speculation around what the 21st century would hold, there are certain things, expected or not that have changed culture.

Change: A Christian Necessity

Evangelist Billy Graham once said, “My one purpose in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ." The very life and work of Billy Graham proves that change in our culture is possible and most importantly a necessity. Dedicating his life to the Lord, Graham shocked the world with his convicting revival meetings. He saw how much the World needed change and knew the importance of a relationship with Christ! With the death of Graham this past week, it is a perfect time to reflect on Change.
