Thank you for tuning in to the Live to Love with Jesus Blog for January, 2022. I invite you to join me as we continue to consider how our minds need to be renewed about relationships. If we are going to live to love with Jesus, we should think like He thinks about relationships. The past two months, we learned that the value of relationships isn’t dependent upon what we get from them and that the value of a person is that his or her presence gives us an opportunity to know, experience, and express God’s love, revealed through Jesus Christ.
Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries
The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.
Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.
Chariot of Fire Blog
It’s the Christmas season, so of course, our focus turns to the coming of Jesus to earth. We celebrate that glorious day when Jesus, the Son of God, the Christ, the Lord, the Savior of the world entered into our dark, fallen, condemned, useless existence. What value did He see in us? God’s description of mankind isn’t a pretty picture.
It’s such an incredible privilege to live each day to love with Jesus. Having our minds renewed to think like Jesus thinks, frees us to get into the flow of His love for those He puts in our lives. Rom. 12:2, a familiar verse on the importance of renewing our minds, calls us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. It reads:
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
"Thanks again for your ministry to all of us guys at the Illinois camp, my sons and I were truly blessed by the weekend. I am excited to see God leading your ministry to focus on loving like/with Jesus. I believe this message has the potential to impact the Church greatly. "

"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!
