Knowing God's Love
By Christian Equippers International

The purpose of this teaching is to awaken our hearts to the deep affectionate love that God has for each of us and His longing that we would return that love back to Him. Christianity is first and foremost a love story. God created each of us, through love, as special creations with the intent that we would live eternally in a deep committed, affectionate love relationship with Him.

Though we may all agree to this theologically, we are too easily detoured from making pursuit of this intimate relationship with God our priority. The pressures of life, our own sense of unworthiness, and a performance mentality are only some of the ditches into which we so easily fall.

There is nothing so spiritually liberating and so emotionally healing as living in a revelation of and a fellowship with the loving heart of God. It is the supreme cure for the confusions, stresses, hurts and fears that come with life on this planet. The purpose of this teaching is to inspire us and guide us into the ultimate pursuit: knowing the love of God.

Salvation, Signs, And Wonders
January 1, 2010

In the Book of Acts, there were four main methods God used to convert men to Christ. The preaching of the gospel was the sole agent of conversion used in most of the situations (32 out of 56 total situations recorded). Today, God also mainly uses this method. However, as in the Book of Acts, people are converted through other means as well.

For example, on 13 separate occasions in the Book of Acts, the miraculous accompanied the preaching of the gospel. Mark 16:20 says, "...and they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word through the accompanying signs and wonders." To exclude the miraculous is to limit effectiveness in evangelism. There are people who need a power encounter with God to convince them of the Gospel message.

The HeartBeat Of Christianity
March 2, 2010

You have recently begun an exciting life long journey of relationship with God. II Corinthians 5:17 describes how completely our lives are changed in relationship to Him: "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new." The Holy Spirit entered our life at the point of receiving Christ as our personal Lord and savior and we were born again. Instantly the process of change began. He revealed Jesus to us and began to draw our hearts to Him. The Bible began to come alive with all of its revelation of our spiritual destiny and its practical wisdom for daily living.

Empowering Leaders For Our Time
March 17, 2010

Written by Terry Edwards, President of CEI

Next to him was Shammah, son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel's troops fled from them. 12 But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory.
13 During harvest time, three of the thirty chief men came down to David at the cave of Adullam, while a band of Philistines was encamped in the Valley of Rephaim. 14 At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem. 15 David longed for water and said, "Oh, that someone would get me a drink of water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem!" 16 So the three mighty men broke through the Philistine lines, drew water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem and carried it back to David. But he refused to drink it; instead, he poured it out before the LORD. 17 "Far be it from me, O LORD, to do this!" he said. "Is it not the blood of men who went at the risk of their lives?" And David would not drink it. Such were the exploits of the three mighty men.
