    Authority of the Believer – Living Complete Part Two
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Because of Jesus' victory over sin and death, we can have right standing with God. Our salvation was a free gift from God. We now have spiritual authority to live in victory. We did nothing to earn our salvation, however as Christians, we do have the ability to work on our relationship  with God.  We have direct access to God through prayer.   Pastor Ashley shared four ways God responds to our prayers: 1. Direct (immediately) 2. Different (than what we asked)  3. Delayed (not in our timing)  4. Denied (God says no)

     As believers, we have access to everything we need to live a completed life. We have access to the Word. We have access to prayer. Nothing is missing in the life of a Christian. We can grow in our knowledge, but He has already completed the work. We must access the authority that God has given us as believers.

    Parables -The Sower
    Parables were a means that Jesus used to convey his message. Parables are an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. It's God's desire that we would understand the meaning of the parables. The Parable of the Sower, found in Mark chapter four is foundational. It teaches us how to receive the Word in all of the other parables. Ultimately, in the Parable of the Sower, we find that it all comes down to two types of soil...Soil that produces fruit and soil that doesn't. The seed is good, but it is dependent on the soil, to determine whether it will bring forth fruit. As we apply this parable of Jesus to our lives, we may examine ourselves to see if our heart is soil that produces.

    Our Promised Land
    In his message, "Our Promised Land", Chatman Laxton shares that God has a promised land of life and abundance for us here on this earth. We must first seek God's kingdom and his righteousness, and we can then know that God has a place of success and abundance for us to take part in. Chatman presented three takeaways from the Promised Land referenced in the  Old Testament: 1) The Promised Land was a literal, physical place. It was not simply a symbol for Heaven. 2) The Promised Land was centered around a relationship with God and his presence. Our success is built on relationship with God, and his Holy Spirit inside of us. 3) The Promised Land required effort through faith to obtain it. It takes effort to go to the next level in our faith.
