The Exchanged Life
How are you doing in your soul? What is the condition of your spirit – the deepest part of you? It may take a moment to access your inner state, but it is good to check-in with yourself from time-to-time.
The apostle Paul said the Kingdom of God is a matter of “Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 14:17) This is what the Life of Christ looks like in us. Jesus described His life as restful, rightly fit for us and light. (Matthew 11:28-30) Deep down within yourself, do you sense righteousness, peace, joy, rest and lightness? Or do you feel cluttered and weighed down on the inside?
At the core of the Christian life is a death and resurrection. Jesus’ crucifixion is a payment for our sin-saturated lives and a release from sin’s strangle-hold. His resurrection demonstrates the power of the Holy Spirit and is a picture of new, supernatural life. This inner life...
What does it mean to be a good human?
It relates to our identity as image-bearers of God.
We were created in the image of God. Being in God's image points to our ability to connect with and commune with God.
We understand and receive our identity from being with God. In that way we need to be Human Beings - humans, being with God.
We exercise our identities in God by exercising/expressing God's will/intent/perspective in our roles and life spheres. We express our unique identities through our unique offerings to the world.
What do you have to offer the world? ... that is your unique Human doing.
To be a Good Human is to be a Human Being - with God and a Human Doing - through God's enablement and power.
At this point in your life, might God be encouraging you to grow on the Being or the Doing side?
We need both to be Good Humans!

Do you feel like you are getting good traction in your life?
Sometimes we are not gaining ground because we are not aligned with our Design, Placement and Purposes from God.

In this podcast, we look at aligning ourselves with God's Gifting.
We particularly focus on the Ascension Gifts (or APEST Gifts) expressed in Ephesians 4:11-13.
We look at the purposes of the different gifts.
We look at how each gifting - or manifestation of the Holy Spirit - functions ... what it looks like in real life.
We also consider how we can identify and grow in the expression of these gifts that God has appointed.
The goal is to continue to grow in your own unique expression of God's gifting and fruit, representing Him will and extending His Kingdom in your spheres of influence.

Are you aware of the state of your soul?
Do you know how to attend to your soul?

These are hugely important topics that are seldom discussed, and few have received any training in this area. We must learn to attend to our souls, so we can additionally attend to the souls of others. If we can't care for ours, we certainly can't meaningfully care for theirs.
Let' move beyond our addictions to the frenetic energy around us. Let's get deeper than opinions, and processed conclusions that we've borrowed from others. Let's avoid the temptation to think we know things we don't really know, to think we've done things we haven't really done, or to think we are making a difference when we actually aren't doing anything. Let's be attentive to our souls, and learn to attend to them.
Here are three tips I discuss in this short video:
1. Think about what you are thinking about.
2. Feel what you are feeling
3. Invite God into your...
