||CleanWalking in the Spirit||Inside of all of us is the capacity to recognize the presence of God. Bill Johnson unpacks Romans chapter 8 for us, revealing the nature of a life in partnership with the Holy Spirit. Bill teaches us that God gave us an inheritance, and the Holy Spirit the down payment of that inheritance on earth. As sons and daughters of God, it is our nature to be led by the Spirit and be familiar with His voice. The more we learn to yield ourselves, the more walking in the Spirit is normal and natural.||9/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Lifestyle of Peace||Jesus promises to guard our hearts and minds with peace. The enemy uses anxiety to create a battlefield in our minds, that affects our relationship with God, our creativity, and our identity. When we abide in a place of prayer, and fill our minds with truth, we won’t be distracted by battles we aren’t meant to fight.||9/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanIntimate Disruption||The agape love of the Father is after us, and He will break every rule to get to our hearts. Eric Johnson teaches from Luke 15, where a son chooses to leave his father’s house, dishonoring his family. When the son returns, the father runs towards him and puts a robe and a ring on him, disrupting the cultural norms of the time. On the cross, Jesus disrupted every rule in history, for the sake of intimacy with us.||9/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanBorn for Times of Crisis||Like Nehemiah who rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem, we are commissioned by God to take ownership of our cities and spheres of influence.

Pastor Bill Johnson breaks down 1 Timothy 1 to encourage us that there are things that God promises us that are not guaranteed.
