Bravo, God, Bravo!

Where is our enthusiasm for God and His marvelous works? Why don’t we shout it out? Do we long for an encore? What is it about God’s glory that causes us to stand in awe? Are we ready to stand at attention and salute the King of Glory?

Bravo, God, bravo!
Gods and all angels shout, “Encore!”
In awe before the glory,
in awe before God’s visible power.
Stand at attention!
| Psalm 29:1-2 (The Message Bible)

Where is our enthusiasm for God and His marvelous works? God is not boring. God is God and God deserves our enthusiasm. We need to yell out “Bravo, Bravo”!

Why don’t I shout it out? I am silent many days. I go through the day not uttering a word about the stunning work of God and Jesus. It is a stunning day in paradise. I will shout it out.

“Right now I am storm-tossed. What am I going to say? ‘Father, get me out of this’? No, this is why I came in the first place. I’ll say, ‘Father, put your glory on display.’”

A voice came out of the sky: “I have glorified it, and I’ll glorify it again.” | John 12:27-28

Do I long for an encore? God has done amazing works. I long for God to do it again and to do it better and more gloriously. Encore dear Jesus! Encore Holy Spirit! More and more. I want more.

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” | John 11:40

I want to see it.

What is it about God’s glory that causes me to stand in awe? Here is something stunning. Listen to Jesus.

“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” | John 17:24 (NASB)

Jesus wants me to see His glory. Lord Jesus, show me your glory! Now that is something to ask for. Good news! Jesus wants to do it and will.

The beauty of Jesus is stunning. I can’t bear to look directly into His brilliance. Oh, the magnificence of the Son of God.

Am I ready to stand at attention and salute the King of Glory? I will honor God and Jesus. I will stand at attention to my King. Jesus is in charge. Jesus deserves my utmost respect. I am so proud of the work Jesus has accomplished for me.

What We Believe

There is power in prayer. We see it every day. Let us join with you in tapping into the Power of God. Click here to make a request.

Our programs are like an immersion into a new language – the language of living in Jesus.  The goal is fluency in the language of relationships.  Programs share a sequential vision, building an understanding of relationships and family culture.  The foundation is an encounter with Jesus.  This encounter is the means for both insight and vision.  Encountering Jesus leads a radical change in living and relationships. Learn more here.

We are an inter-denominational ministry, and our desire is for transformation: a genuine change of heart and lifestyle that flows out of an intimate relationship with Jesus.

We believe:

  • Jesus is Lord. We exalt the One True God who made us and gave us the Lord Jesus Christ as our salvation. Our goal is to be a people with a heart for obedience to Christ in all things. His work made it possible for us to live – eternally and now – as children of God. Jesus made it possible for us to be rightly related to the Father and to one another. His desire is for us to succeed. We believe a right relationship with Him is the first and most important step.
  • The Bible is True. God’s Word is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12-13), which we take into our minds and spirits and live out through the flesh. When Jesus asked what the greatest commandment was, He said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31). The basis for everything we teach is “Life is Relationships.”
  • Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit. We desire to walk in and by the Spirit. The Holy Spirit (available to all believers) empowers Christians for living witness and dedicated service.
