LEGACYouth: The Recipe of Faith

Image
This summer, as some of you know, we've been talking about fullness through the lens of unity; however, I believe not only should we be capturing this in the question, ‘Lord, How do you want to fill me’, we need to be asking, ‘Lord, are you able to fill me? Am I allowing you to fill me? If not, what needs to be activated…what needs to be stirred up in me before you can fill me?’
You see…before we have a container that can receive what God wants to fill us with, we need to have a container that can hold what God wants to fill us with. And after processing this conviction, I submit God wants to do some patch-work in our hearts this summer where our faith is activated to the next level.
But Cam, ‘How do I activate my faith?

By trusting God. By not only by saying "I believe", but “I do” and “I will”. God wants us to trust him like Peter did when God asked him to walk on the water. Have enough faith to know he won't let you drown. 

The Bible states in Deuteronomy 31:8: “The…

How to Go with the Flow When You Just Don't Know

Image
So yesterday I’m driving home reminiscing about last week’s rafting trip when it hits me…

Like the Ocoee, there are many out there locked into flow riding the rhythms of life.

Steadfast. Persistent. Always on the move.

Yet, while on the outside, they seem to be getting somewhere…abiding within a certain fluidity, on the inside, they are trapped…unable to slow down…and dampened by what the current is hiding.

So I pressed in. Lord, what are you trying to tell me? 

And he said, ‘Cam, behind every responsibly managed white-water river, there’s a dam irrigating its flow. Each year, the river flows in season and is then drained for maintenance. Yet, even when there’s no water, the river is still a river. For man may define a river by how much water it holds, but I define a river by the fact I’ve created it to do so. After all, if I am that I am, I am that I dam.’

Selah.

Faith at Work (Part 2): Rethinking Influence

Image
If you’ve been a frequent flyer with us over the years, chances are you know we’re passionate about helping bivocationals bridge the gap between sacred and secular…in living the same way on Monday as they do on Sunday.

But lately I’ve been thinking: What if we’ve been looking at the Sunday –> Monday discussion all wrong? 

I know, like many, I’ve heard my share of seasoned voices charging consistency within the body of Christ. Yet, the more I consider this in the context of commissioned marketplace leaders, the more I wonder if the core issue has more to do with connecting our influence than leading from spiritual authority/expertise.

For instance, I may not have the most expert depth relative to my occupation, but I do have the mind of Christ guided by his thoughts and purposes (1 Corinthians 2:16 AMP). Sure, I may be a low man on the totem pole from a corporate hierarchical perspective; however, this doesn’t mean I lack influence.

You see…far too often we get distracted trying to make…

LEGACYouth: Setting the Table

Image
When I say ‘set the table’, what immediately comes to mind?

Dinner? Chore? Family? ‘Power off’?
I know for me I’m reminded of one my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies: the classic “Food!” chant in Twister when the chasers try to convince Jo to swing by her Aunt Meg’s for some sustenance.


However we approach the phrase, chances are we’re thinking about one of life’s most basic essentials being satisfied. After all, we can’t live without consuming nourishment.
Yet, while physically, cravings are interspersed, continually coming and going, when we talk about spiritual nourishment, we’re talking about a completely different kind of filling.
You see, often times, we talk about spiritual hunger and fullness in exclusive terms (i.e. gotta get hungry, then I gotta get filled, and then I gotta get full, stay full, etc.)
But when we dive into the Word, we find that’s not how it works.


‘Cause as we inevitably find, there’s a difference between being filled and being full.
For ‘to be fille…
