in the name of god

Where is God? If you had to point to the place where God’s presence is known, his power is real, and his authority is sure, where would it be? If you find yourself even a little unsure, you’re not alone. For many of us, we imagine God to be nearby. But if we’re honest, his presence, power, and authority seem too distant to be real.

If we want God with us, Jesus makes clear what we must do: “Where two or three gather in my name, I am there with them” (Mat 18:20). To bring him near, we’ve got to get together and invoke his name. If you’re no longer content to imagine God is near, then you need us and we need you. Let’s get together in 2022—with Jesus!

the fire of god

When God is present, all his goodness comes with him. Like water, God’s goodness flows out of who he is. At the same time, to behold God’s face is to encounter God’s glory. If God’s goodness is like water, his glory is like fire—it changes everything it touches!

the face of god

Nothing on the face of this earth can supply what you will only behold in the face of God. Though no eye can see his face, God does reveal his face—his presence—to the hearts of those who call to him by name. Do you know his name? Will you seek his face?

the name of the lord

God wants back in—back into the world he created, back into the lives of his people. He’s ready to show up: to speak, to move, to work in us and among us. With so many other so-called “gods” running around, we’d better be sure we get his Name right.
