TRAVEL WITH US EPISODE 1: Church Planting Planning Step 1

TRAVEL WITH US is a series of videos where I share some of the steps and insights we come across as we prepare to launch a church plant in North Minneapolis. I plan to take you through the steps to catching God's vision for the church up to the point of preparing and launching that vision in your context. Episode 1 is titled Church Planting Planning Step 1: Study the Church in Scripture. Summary: You need to catch God's vision for the church and understand His design and plan for it in order to pursue planting. I recommend conducting a topical study with your team to align in understanding of the who, what, where, when, and whys of the church to begin your vision plan.

A DISCUSSION ON SIN AND THE SOLUTION

As part of a series of FB Live posts to talk about the vision for Near North Community Church, Mike Strong discusses the topic of sin, why it matters to each of us, and why church planting is God's work in eradicating it and spreading His glory to the ends of the earth.

MEDITATION: JESUS SEEKS AND SAVES (VIDEO)

Jesus is the perfect image bearer. God has revealed Himself in a unique way in Jesus. We see how God is as He lived in the world with mankind. He is the perfection of God in fully human form and perfectly fulfills the law. He is our head and our example. He is our Lord, our King, our God. He is also our savior. It has been the plan of God in His wisdom to save us from our sin. He has made this known in many ways, but we have now been given this gift in the person and work of Jesus. This broken world has many ways to point us to our need of help outside of ourselves. These pains and sufferings point us to the need for a savior. The ultimate pain is the bondage in sin. We need salvation from sin, its effects, and the masters who use it to enslave us to do their will. This is a ten minute meditation on some of these subjects and how Jesus has come and accomplished what we need as well as how Christians should follow Christ in building the church through gospel proclamation and discipleship.

DEATH AND TAXES

How the cross and character of Christ affects our work in regard to finances. 

We look at tithes, offerings, kings, kingdoms, expectations, and burdens that can affect people in regard to finances. The revelation of the heart of man and the heart of God comes through the crucible of finances and the pressures that rest on them in the law(s). This is a way to think through taxes and giving in light of Matthew 17.

NORTH MINNEAPOLIS PRAYER BLOG 11/24/17: RIGHTEOUSNESS (PART 11)

ISSUE: GOD'S WILL-RIGHTEOUSNESS (PART 11)

I hope your thanksgiving was filled with joy and fellowship. For some, it was lonely and painful whether or not the house was full. I am praying for you today. May God fill you with joy and peace as you read of God's plan to bring the presence of fullness of joy. We won't get into that part as much today. It's in the upcoming blog that links a lot of this together, but for all who are in Christ, we have become the living stones that are the work of Christ's hands in building the church, His eternal dwelling place. Whether anyone is physically around you or not today, God is by His presence. He fills His people by His Spirit and Word. Everything you walk through, He walks through with you. He goes before you, behind you, over you, and is in you. I know from personal experience that it doesn't always feel like Jesus is with you, but He is. And better than that, He will never leave you or forsake you. He was forsaken on the cross so you would never be forsaken. You are dear to Him. He calls you His own. He calls you beloved. As you read of God's plan, I ask you to look past the actions, or works that occur in the world to bring the plan into place, and instead look behind the plan at the heart of the one who Has determined to set His love on you forever. Behold, your God. Please pray this truth will seep into the hardest of hearts here in North Minneapolis. Thank you for journeying with us and praying with us. We can't see you, but I feel your prayers.

NORTH MINNEAPOLIS PRAYER FOR 11/23/17: RIGHTEOUSNESS (PART 10)

 

ISSUE-GOD'S WILL-RIGHTEOUSNESS

Today is Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you who read this. There is much to be thankful for today. I am especially thankful for God's work to save me. I am thankful for His Word and for His people who teach it and live in it. There is no fellowship like that which comes by the cross of Christ through Jesus. I'm thankful for my wife and children. I'm thankful for good food and so many wondrous things God gives us to enjoy on this holiday. I am hoping you can join us in a prayer of thankfulness to God for all of the things He has done in his mercy with so much patience and love. We are so needy, yet God has given us all we need in the person Christ Jesus. There is no lack. Today's blog continues to look at God's work in changing names and the prophecy it tells us of what He is going to do in the particular man He names and in the world as a result. We shift to the New Testament and look at Jesus' work in the New Covenant. Tomorrow we will begin to explore the personal link for every believer. God bless you and your family this holiday and may you enjoy Him and be satisfied!

NORTH MINNEAPOLIS PRAYER FOR 11/22/17: RIGHTEOUSNESS (PART 9)

ISSUE: GOD'S WILL-RIGHTEOUSNESS (PART 9)

Tonight we will begin to look at God's work in changing people and the relationship with names they are given. God is doing a special work today. He is making His name great by building a body of people who carry His name...and His Holy Spirit. He does this by the word of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have had this promise from the beginning, but we will begin to see how powerful this work is in the life of a believer. This is about God's name and men's names that point to God's name. A changed name is a gift of the promise of God to make men new and to change them inside and out. Tomorrow we will go a bit deeper into the New Testament names and the link to Revelation 2:17. There is much hope in Jesus Immanuel. Please continue to pray for God's name to be lifted up in North Minneapolis. We are also praying for His people to join us here in this work.
