The Good News about Jesus is powerful to change lives. John McCarthy is called to help with this to be understood and to explain how this can be applied to all areas of life. This website is a platform to share some of the writing projects before they are published. It's about a new church that is revealed in a fresh vision of where God is moving.
'I have found amazing grace when God saw that I was serious about helping Him. It's when I started to be real with Him things started to change in my life. I said words that needed to be said and did things that needed to be done. I have found my rest in doing ministry including writing as God has called me to. I didn't know till later in my walk with the Lord that He wants to heal by dealing with sin even after confessing in the past. I can see this is because He is looking to sanctify and purify us. It's been an evolving process for me. Not just to hear but also to listen, to think carefully and with dialogue with God that's bringing more breakthroughs.
It definitely was a new season once I started using a Jesus sign to evangelise. I can see that when we do something to help the people around us it is one of the best things to state every day who we want to be - the new creation. I only found out that I was called to write some years ago and as I moved the gift develops. I know that many blessings are found in what he has for us by sharing our spiritual gifts to people what we are given.'
Spiritual friendships and ministry are the two parts of the purpose of how we are made. The ministry video below explains about this that's deep in God's heart.
'The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You support my lot.
6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.
God's Heart is for Small Groups
A core of the relational connection in the church can be found in small groups. Just like a gardener removes weeds and establishes fertile land to grow plants, the same can be said what is to happen in these. The right spiritual friends that want to help with the spiritual cleansing process would make it more smooth sailing for success in God's kingdom. There is something also deep in Father God's heart - it's ministry! These groups can fill holes in the heart for this purpose.
It could be the case that you have in your heart already to start a group but have not done anything about it. It's easier than you think. All you need is a common agreement to live with the Lord Jesus in repentance and faith. When these groups follow this pattern it should be life transforming. Be bold and have confidence that this is a deep purpose that God wants to thoroughly bless.
