As he shows us in the word, the vertical covenant we have with God, mandates a horizontal covenant with the world around us, and because of that we , who are called to God, should be seeking to impact the culture around us.

    In the third part of Pastor Ashley's Lead by The Spirit series, Pastor Ashley talks about the importance of relying on our ability to "see" God moving spiritually, instead of through what our five physical senses tell us. Understanding, rather, that we should be leaning on our "sixth" sense and that being our spiritual sense to truly allow us to see God moving always.

    History Teaches
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley teaches us not to shy away from the aspects of history, and that even the ugly things of history can teach us invaluable lessons. Using the story of Judas the Iscariot, we are able to receive a great lesson of what it means to truly be a follower of Christ.

    Know that You Know
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley preaches from Exodus 33. God promises to go with the Israelites as they enter the Promised Land to take possession of it. Realistically, they were heading into enemy territory where they knew they would face imminent danger, ungodly people, and fierce resistance. But God's promise in verse 14 was that He would go with them, give them rest, and that everything would be fine for them. That promise is for the church today as we live in perilous times, and we can find comfort in that understanding.

    A Relationship with God Part 8
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    In Mark 11, we read of the fig tree that appeared on the outside to be good for fruit; however, it did not produce. Pastor Ashley uses this example to show us that as Christians we are created to produce, and when we don't, we are violating the intent of our creator. Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it died immediately at its roots. In like manner, we should be speaking to those things in our lives that are not producing according to God's will for our lives. Too often we speak to God about our problems when He has instructed us to use the Law of Faith to speak to our problems directly.

    Would heaven be inviting to you if you had could have everyone and everything that you loved and held dear here on the earth except for Christ? Pastor Ashley teaches in Part 7 of A Relationship with God series that without Christ we would never have had the blessings in our lives to begin with. He is our ultimate goal, and when we cultivate a relationship with Him through gratitude, we will not desire anyone or anything more than we desire Him.

    A Relationship with God Part 5
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley teaches us to rightly divide the passage in Luke 11:5-8, which many have taught as a comparison to God when it is, in fact, a contrast. We do not have to beg God for things that He not only desires to give, but has already given. In the Old Testament, great men like Moses and Abraham had to serve as mediators between God and man; however, today we have Christ as our mediator. He is always advocating on our behalf, but it is our job to position ourselves to receive whatever it is that we are asking for.

    Getting Real Part 1: True and False Worship
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Melanie Bertoglio teaches from Isaiah 58 to remind us that the condition of our vertical relationship with God does not rest on what we do for Him, i.e. going to church, reading the Bible, fasting, praying, sacrificing, singing in the choir, etc. While all of these things are important, a loving, intimate relationship with God will manifest itself in our horizontal relationships with others. If our relationships and our communications with people do not reflect the heart of God toward them, then our vertical relationship with God is not what it needs to be. In today's culture, the world needs to see Christians being nice.

    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Prayer is communion with God, and not an attempt to inform a misinformed God. Using the Lord's Prayer as our outline for how to commune with God, Pastor Ashley encourages that if we start and end with praise, all of our circumstances that we are praying about become very small. When we think of our prayer time as communing with God, worshiping and loving Him as our primary goal, we can truly develop a deep and meaningful relationship with Him.

    "A Relationship with God Part 2" by Ashley Ellison. Pastor Ashley shares the words of the prophet Zephaniah as he emphasizes the goodness of God as motivation for our desire to have relationship with Him. God rejoices and dances over us with singing because of His great love for us, and if we have genuine gratitude in our hearts for that love, it will ignite in us a love for Him necessary to build a real relationship.
