We’re getting ready to do a new 7 part video course as part of the Spirit Lifestyle eLearning portfolio. Typically we tend to have a focus on the Spirit empowered life. We see this as a personal calling but also as a mandate to encourage and equip others into a spiritually dynamic faith that sees the manifestation of God’s power in all kinds of wonderful ways.

The danger of with having an emphasis like this is that some other aspects of the believers life are in danger of being overlooked or ignored. On the whole this isn’t a problem because we know that we are talking to people who already have a good diet of other kinds of Bible teaching. However, there is an area of life that really is a major key to walking in public power and that is the private life of the believer.

Traditionally throughout history Christianity has revolved around the private life of devotions. The devotions of serving, praying, fasting, worship and meditation. These activities mean many different things to different people but I want to talk about these activities when they are done in secret.

Our new series is called – ANCIENT PATHWAYS TO PERSONAL FREEDOM… the invitation is to take ‘the road less traveled by’ and experience a deeper life in God that doesn’t ebb and flow but remains deeply anchored.

That we may be ‘filled with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the spirit gives.’ Colossians 1:9
