Is Your Squad The Right Squad?

Have you ever gone somewhere with a giant squad? There’s something about rolling with a mob-sized friend group that makes you feel invincible. Going to the movies? You own that place. Laser tag? You’re untouchable. Chipotle? I’ll have…ALL your guac.

To go even further, when you roll with the right people, everything becomes 100x better. Jokes are funnier, stories are crazier, and whatever your goal is becomes easier. If we’re being honest, sometimes we even “forget” to invite certain friends to things because we know they might ruin the vibe (too real?). But whatever the mission is, you want a dream team that knows what they’re doing, and has fun doing it.

We all have a mission, you can even call it a purpose, and the truth is: Your mission requires the right squad. Your squad will determine your destiny. It’s true, they will either keep you on mission or knock you off it. The people you surround yourself with will dictate where you end up. So, in order for you to grow into the person God created you to be and then accomplish everything He’s called you to do, you’re gonna need the right squad.

How To Live an Unstoppable Life

How To Live an Unstoppable Faith

“But 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.” – Acts 1:8


“You WILL receive power…” When Jesus made this statement, it carried the same Spirit and authority that ushered light into the universe. The God-given power we have as Christians is not up for question, but what we DO with that power is. The differentiating factor between someone who is and is not on Mission Unstoppable lies upon both the individual’s mindset and the inevitable actions that flow from it.

So, how do you live an unstoppable life? The answer is two-fold…

A Faith That Fights

A FAITH THAT FIGHTS

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7

 

Fear Factor

In such a fearful world, we need faithful christians. But in order to live faithfully, we must live fearlessly. A fearless spirit is required for a faithful life. The problem is that we often agree with the wrong spirits. We listen to the voices and opinions of others, rather than what God says about us. The truth is, we’re called to stand out; we’re called to make a stand even when it’s not popular. No thing can define you, no single person can define you. We can’t let a crowd determine our calling – only HE can speak over your life.

Revival Is Serious

Revival is serious. In a world that desperately needs answers, it’s not a word to be thrown around. It’s not a concept to be taken lightly. When God hears prayers for revival, He listens. When thousands of believers come together and cry out for revival, it demands a response. This year, God responded to the cry.

Awakening Conference 2016 was less of a conference and more of an Awakening. We saw hundreds of salvations, heard thousands of worshippers, and millions were reached. But now that conference is over, what do we do? What do the repercussions of revival look like? What does it mean to be in a new era?

10 Things You’ll Miss If You’re Not at Conference

10 THINGS YOU’LL MISS IF YOU’RE NOT AT AWAKENING CONFERENCE


1. THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA
This is the 10th year of Awakening Conference. It’s been a decade in the making and what’s going to happen this year will be ushering in a New Era. We are expecting a move of God.

2. THE OPENERS
Have you ever experienced the openers at Awakening Conference? Imagine that 10 times over, in an arena of thousands. You haven’t even begun to imagine how mind-blowingly awesome this is going to be.

3. THE WORSHIP
The worship that you’ll experience at conference will blow the roof off of the arena and your life. Singing along to Awakening Worship or Elevation Worship in your car (admit it, we all know you blast it and sing at the top of your lungs when you’re driving alone) is awesome, but worshiping God with thousands of people in an atmosphere of revival is probably unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. You will never be the same again.

A New Era

Recently in an article entitled “These are the Most Godless Cities in America” Time Magazine stated “America, you may have a new Sodom and Gomorrah.The two least “Bible-minded” cities in the United States are the adjacent metros of Providence, R.I., and New Bedford, Mass.” This isn’t news to the New England church, we’ve been labeled the frozen chosen, and the preachers graveyard for decades. We’ve heard that the church in this region is a “sleeping giant”, that its hard ground, and bad soil. I remember one famous preacher saying that the best view he had of Boston was in his rearview mirror. Seeing all this one might draw the conclusion that the New England church has been defeated, that its dry bones have become too scattered, and that its body has breathed its last breath. But those who are listening can hear the voice of the Lord asking “Can these dry bones live again?”

The Heart Behind Awakening Conference

This year we are making a statement. We’re not backing down, we’re doubling down: Awakening in the Northeast. We know – it sounds crazy, almost impossible, but faith doesn’t back down, it steps up. It’d be easy to stay in our church & sell out a month early, but we’re going to an arena and believing for God to fill it.

Worship is 🔑

“It is you who move man to delight in your praise. For you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” -St. Augustine

Jesus both deserves and demands our worship. The very first commandment is “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.” Whatever you glorify most is what you worship, and whatever you worship is what you become like. Worship Jesus, and allow your life to come into alignment with His.

God’s Word is 🔑

As we walk in this new life with Christ, it is important that we constantly align our life to His, our actions to His, and our thoughts to His, in order to accomplish all that He has for each of us. Though this may sound easy, it something that doesn’t comes natural.

The Bible says in Isaiah 55:9, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” God’s ways are immeasurably different than the ways of man, and it takes a lifestyle of consistent faith to bring us into alignment with the way He does things.

Here is one way to help keep in alignment with the life God has for you:
