Following a morning of powerful testimonies about transformed lives, Pastor Casey continued the encouragement on what makes gospel transformation possible. God loves you and has already taken care of the sin that causes shame and guilt. Jesus took care of your sin before you even acted it out. Sharing your problems with God and others is never the problem.
The problem comes when you don’t let Jesus free you from the shame you hold over yourself.

Presented by Casey Kluver with Evan and Autumn Stewart (00:55)
Life’s Journey had the privilege to formally commission a local family into the mission field. Evan and Autumn Stewart, along with their four children, were invited and accepted to join the Assembly of God World Missions Tanzania, Africa team as Missionary Associates. During the commissioning presentation, Evan and Autumn shared why they are going and how this is a “yes” moment to follow Jesus.
Pastor Casey also announced a huge blessing for the Stewarts as they raise the funds for their two-year stay – a $10,000 matching challenge by Life’s Journey Christian Fellowship. Listen to be encouraged and find out how you can say “yes” to Jesus every day.
This isn’t the first time Life’s Journey has sent our own into the overseas mission field. We are excited that our team continues to reach the whole world for Jesus Christ.
Pastor Casey continues to address the different angles from which we approach our relationships and conflicts. This week we look at our attitudes. We can hear what we think someone is saying when our internal attitude is “off”, instead of what they really said. Our internal world, the soul, is where we need discipline. Jesus trained his disciples for three years so they would be ready for the history-making ministry they were about to embark on.
Let us consider training ourselves. Listen along as Pastor Casey encourages us to be a product of who God says we are.
