Worship…Witness…Walk…

At Dorrigo LifeSprings Church we believe that Jesus is our Shepherd, the head of His body on the earth. That His vision is our vision to work out in our own Acts !:8 commission ” you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

We all do this differently as The Holy Spirit directs us, but the framework is the same.  Worship God. Witness to the redemption found in no-one else but Jesus. Walk in the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Jesus only spoke what He heard the Father say “For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken” John 12:49, and did only what He saw the Father doing. “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5:19

He brought light into the darkness, He brought food for the hungry, He brought healing to the broken, He brought hope to the despairing. He responded with compassion, but left no room for doubt that He was God incarnate. We follow Him, we do as He did…with the help and indwelling power of the Holy Spirit and with the authority won back for us by Jesus and in His name. This can be daunting and stretching and challenging, but so exciting living every day hand in hand with the Holy Spirit.

Be blessed as you serve our wonderful, mighty, loving Papa God.

Our name is on His lips

Be encouraged, beloved of the Most High God, Jesus has gone before you, preparing your way. Just as the Holy Spirit works glory into us each day as we prepare the way for Him.We know who He is and our name is on His lips. Take a moment and think about that. Our eternal Father just loves you to bits. wow…..

On Isaiah 45:2-3

Walk in Your footsteps
Hand to the plough …
The furrow runs straight and true through the easy earth …
On either side the shattered remnants of long forgotten bronze and fragments of iron that could not bar the Way.
Work through the night as the darkness gives up its treasures
And the secret places shout “Glory” as the Spirit bites deep.
And I know who You are as I run with the sound of my name on Your lips.

 

Isaiah 45:2-3 (NAS)

“I will go before you and make the rough places smooth;
I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.
“I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,
So that you may know that it is I,
The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
