Your Love Awakens Me | Phil Wickham and Chris Quilala

I would like to make you aware of another great worship song that really speaks to what God is doing in the hearts of His sons and daughters today. It’s called, “Your Love Awakens Me,” written by Phil Wickham and Chris Quilala (Jesus Culture).

Jesus’ Subversive Kingdom – Part Three

As I shared last time, Jesus’ central message was that the kingdom of God, now, for the first time, has invaded earth and intends to fully integrate itself in and among humankind.

And the Kingdom carriers, starting with Jesus, have come to turn this world construct “upside-down” (Acts 17:6). This is Continue reading
