Journey into the

WORD

Insight Kingdom

January/February 2012 Volume 13


Pastors’ Page A Journey  into  the  Word No  other  habit  can  do  more  to  transform  your  life  and  make  you  more  like  Jesus  than  to  study   and  act  upon  God’s  Word.  To  be  a  healthy  disciple  of  Jesus,  feeding  on  God’s  Word  must  be  your   >irst  priority.  Jesus  called  it  “abiding.”  He  said,  “If  you  abide  in  my  word,  then  you  are  truly   disciples  of  mine”  (John  8:31  NASB). God’s  Word  is  not  meant  just  to  inform  you,  but  to  transform  you.  God  never  meant  for  Bible   study  to  simply  increase  our  knowledge.  Receiving,  reading,  researching,  remembering,  and   re>lecting  on  the  Bible  is  useless  if  we  fail  to  put  God’s  Word  into  practice.  The  apostle  James   says  if  we  want  our  lives  to  be  blessed  by  God  we  must  become  “doers  of  the  word”  (James   1:22-­‐25  KJV). Jesus  says  both  knowing  and  applying  the  Word  creates  the  foundation   for  our  lives:  “Everyone  who  hears  these  words  of  mine  and  puts  them   into  practice  is  like  a  wise  man  who  built  his  house  on  the  rock”  (Matthew   7:24  NIV).  In  order  to  become  Christlike,  we  must  become  living   translations  of  God’s  Word.   God’s  Word  is  unlike  any  other  book.  It  is  alive.  When  God  speaks,  your   life  will  be  transformed,  but  that  can  only  happen  by  making  the  Bible  the   authoritative  standard  for  your  life:  the  compass  you  rely  on  for  direction,  the  counsel  you   listen  to  for  making  wise  decisions,  and  the  benchmark  you  use  for  evaluating  everything.  The   Bible  must  always  have  the  >irst  and  last  word  in  your  life.   The  Word  of  God  was  so  important  to  Job  that  he  said,  “I  have  treasured  the  words  of  God’s   mouth  more  than  my  necessary  food”  (Job  23:12).  In  other  words,  what  God  had  to  say  was   more  important  to  Job  than  three  meals  a  day.  It  was  fuel  by  which  Job  lived  his  life  and  by   which  he  was  sustained  during  his  severe  trial.   We  live  in  a  time  of  trial,  stress,  and  challenges.  Our  need  for  the  Word  of  God  is  critical!  Never   before  has  there  been  such  a  famine  of  God’s  Word.  Most  people  are  ignorant  of  what  the   Scriptures  have  to  say.  We  live  in  a  day  of  biblical  illiteracy,  even  among  believers.   Let’s  begin  2012  with  a  journey…a  journey  into  the  Word  of  God.  Let’s  learn  together  how  to   dig  out  the  riches  of  the  Word.  Over  the  next  three  months  my  prayer  is  that  you  will:  love  the   Word  of  God  like  you’ve  never  loved  it  before,  learn  the  Word  of  God  like  you’ve  never  learned   it  before  and  live  the  Word  of  God  like  you’ve  never  lived  it  before.   Pastor  Bob


Campaign Report The Lord  has  been  faithful  to  us  during  these  past  three  years  of  the  Partnering  to  SEE  the   Vision  Continue  campaign.    We  thank  Him  for  his  kindness  in  supporting  us  through  the   dif>icult  times  we  have  endured  together.    We  also  thank  you  for  your  faithfulness   throughout! Our  original  pledge  for  the  3-­‐year  campaign  was  $1,671,458  pledged  by  469  partners.     We  have  now  reached  our  original  completion  date  and  have  received  $1,309,575  from  983   participants.    Anticipating  that  our  church  community  would  desire  to  meet  the  >inancial   targets  set  for  the  campaign,  Pastor  Bob,  the  Finance  Committee  and  I  have  agreed  to  an   extension  for  Partnering  to  SEE  the  Vision  Continue  until  March  31,  2012.    This  will  allow   more  time  for  our  partners  to  help  us  reach  our  goal. The  “giving  progress  balloon”  in  the  Atrium  has  come  down,  and  the  Giving  Tree  will  soon   be  erected.    The  Committee  felt  that  recognition  should  also  be  given  to  those  who  had   contributed  to  the  >irst  campaign.    Therefore,  contributions  from  both  the  Partnering  to   SEE  the  Vision  Continue  and  the  Building  for  the  Harvest  campaigns  will  be  combined  for   inclusion  on  the  Giving  Tree.    As  such,  donations  of  $1,000  or  more  will  now  qualify  you  for   a  leaf  on  the  tree,  as  against  $300  previously  announced  for  the  current  campaign.    All   leaves  will  be  in  one  colour,  regardless  of  the  amount  given.    You  will  have  the  option  to   have  your  name  inscribed  on  a  leaf  or  you  may  dedicate  the  leaf  in  memory  of  someone  else. Update  letters  will  be  mailed  out  to  all  participants  in  January,  outlining  your  giving  to  both   campaigns  as  of  December  31,  2011.    Also  included  in  that  mailing  will  be  an  information   card  for  you  to  record  whose  name  will  be  inscribed  on  your  leaf. As  Hebrews  6:10  (NIV)  says,  “God  is  not  unjust;  He  will  not  forget  your  work  and  the  love   you  have  shown  Him  as  you  have  helped  His  people  and  continue  to  help  them.”    God  takes   note.    He  does  not  forget.    Thank  you  for  partnering  with  us  to  serve  Him  and  His  great   work. Larry  Willard Chairman Partnering  to  SEE  the  Vision  Continue

Discipleship Journey to  Discipleship Our  faith  walk  is  a  journey,  and  while  that  journey  may  look  different  for  every  believer,  the  Bible  iden9fies  some  landmarks   to  keep  us  on  track. These  markers,  or  core  components  of  discipleship,  are  going  to  be  integrated  into  every  ministry  and  group  of  GKM.    For   the  5  Cs  to  be  more  than  just  a  nice  chart,  we  must  all  commit  ourselves  to  growth  and  disciple  making. Why?    Healthy  believers  are  commiPed  to:

Christ -­‐  Growing  in  the  Knowledge  of  Christ  -­‐  2  Peter  3:18

The first  step  in  our  faith  Journey  is  to  gain  a  greater  understanding  of  Christ  through  study   of  the  Bible  and  the  prac9ce  of  prayer.

Character -­‐  Being  Transformed  into  the  Image  of  Christ    -­‐  James  1:23-­‐24,  2  Corinthians  3:18

We should  examine  ourselves  and  compare  our  character  to  that  of  Christ's.    This  is  a  life-­‐long   process,  but  we  need  to  start  somewhere.

Calling -­‐  Pursuing  the  Call  of  Christ  -­‐  Philippians  3:14,  1  Peter  2:21

God has  a  plan  and  purpose  for  us.    As  we  discover  our  giEings,  we  are  more  prepared  to  walk   in  our  des9ny.

Community -­‐  Serving  the  Body  of  Christ  -­‐  Ephesians  2:10,  Romans  12:3-­‐8

The first  expression  of  our  giEs  is  oEen  in  a  ministry  or  group  in  the  community  of  faith.     We  are  all  parts  of  the  Body.  Are  we  doing  our  part?

Care -­‐  Loving  the  NaLons  as  Christ  -­‐    2  Corinthians  5:14-­‐15,  20,  MaOhew  28:19-­‐20

Our calling  extends  to  making  disciples  of  all  na9ons.    When  we  care,  we  give  people  the   opportunity  to  experience  God's  love  in  a  prac9cal  way,  so  we  can  invite  them  to  start  a  faith   journey. In  the  last  few  weeks,  I  have  received  emails  and  calls  from  those  wan9ng  to  know  how  to  get  involved.    There  are  basically   three  (3)  op9ons  I  have  outlined  to  people. I.

Stay connected  to  your  group,  if  you  are  already  a  Ministry  Group  volunteer  or  you  aPend  a  Life  Group.    We  will  be   bringing  a  discipleship  emphasis  to  all  areas  of  ministry.

II. Get involved,  if  you  are  not  yet  involved  in  one  of  our  GKM  Ministries  or  Life  Groups.    Volunteer  applica9ons  are  available   at  the  Info  Centre  or  can  be  filled  out  on  our  website.    Our  Life  Groups  list  is  available  in  paper  and  online  versions  as  well.   School  of  Ministry  is  a  great  op9on  for  those  who  need  some  direc9on  for  involvement.* III. Join  a  Journey  Group,  if  you  are  new  to  the  faith,  recently  returning  to  church,  or  feel  you  need  a  good  founda9on  in  your   faith.    Journey  Groups  are  discipleship  groups    that  touch  on  each  of  the  core  components  of  discipleship.    For  more   details,  email  journey@globalkingdom.ca  or  call  Pastor  Godfrey  at  416-­‐438-­‐1601  x235.  *In  the  newsleOer,  we  have  placed  icons  next  to  some  groups  that  indicate  what  component  of  discipleship  it  covers.


Discipleship The decision to accept Christ into our lives marks the beginning of a lifelong journey, shaped and influenced by our life experiences. The average life span for an individual is roughly 77 years. As a Christian, these years would best be utilized by developing our faith, so that we grow spiritually. Each Christian begins the journey by first learning the foundational biblical teachings that set the stage for deeper learning and spiritual growth. In order to grow however, we must be intentional and disciplined. Once we have learned the basic teachings, we must begin to dig deeper in order to grow. In 2 Peter, we are commanded to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). As we grow, our faith becomes stronger. We become more aware and attuned to God’s desire for our lives. As much as our spiritual growth calls for steps of faith, we should also take time to share our lives with others. The Bible instructs us as Christians to, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Our faith journey begins with a choice. From that point on, we must choose to pursue spiritual growth and development, which will shape and mold our character for an eternity spent with God in heaven. By Jermaine Brown

KINGD OM KIDS 10 Can’t Fail Predictions for 2012 There is  always  a  big  buzz  about  predic5ons  for  a  new  year.    I  wanted  to  offer   some  insights  from  God’s  Word  as  we  look  forward  to  2012  . #1  The  Bible  will  have  all  the  answers  (that  we  really  need) The  secret  things  belong  to  the  LORD  our  God,  but  the  things  revealed   belong  to  us  and  to  our  children  forever,  that  we  may  follow  all  the  words  of   this  law.    Deuteronomy  29:29 #2  God  will  hear  our  prayers The  righteous  cry  out,  and  the  LORD  hears  them;  he  delivers  them  from  all   their  troubles.  Psalm  34:17 #3  The  Holy  Spirit  can  s?ll  change  the  world. But  you  will  receive  power  when  the  Holy  Spirit  comes  on  you;  and  you  will   be  my  witnesses  in  Jerusalem,  and  in  all  Judea  and  Samaria,  and  to  the  ends   of  the  earth.”  Acts  1:8 #4  God  will  s?ll  keep  His  promises God  is  not  man,  that  he  should  lie,  or  a  son  of  man,  that  he  should  change  his   mind.  Has  he  said,  and  will  he  not  do  it?  Or  has  he  spoken,  and  will  he  not   fulfill  it?  Numbers  23:19 #5  There  are  s?ll  only  Two  Ways  to  Live For  the  LORD  watches  over  the  way  of  the  righteous,  but  the  way  of  the   wicked  leads  to  destruc5on.  Psalm  1:6 #6  God  will  s?ll  love  sinners  like  us For  God  so  loved  the  world  that  he  gave  his  one  and  only  Son,  that  whoever   believes  in  him  shall  not  perish  but  have  eternal  life.    For  God  did  not  send   his  Son  into  the  world  to  condemn  the  world,  but  to  save  the  world  through   him.  John  3:16-­‐17 #7  Jesus  will  save  any  who  comes  to  Him And  everyone  who  calls  on  the  name  of  the  Lord  will  be  saved.  Acts  2:21 #8  Jesus  is  coming  back  for  us My  Father’s  house  has  many  rooms;  if  that  were  not  so,  would  I  have  told   you  that  I  am  going  there  to  prepare  a  place  for  you?  And  if  I  go  and  prepare   a  place  for  you,  I  will  come  back  and  take  you  to  be  with  me  that  you  also   may  be  where  I  am.  John  14:2-­‐3 #9  God  will  not  give  up  on  you ..being  confident  of  this,  that  he  who  began  a  good  work  in  you  will  carry  it   on  to  comple5on  un5l  the  day  of  Christ  Jesus.  Philippians  1:6 #10  Everything  you  do  in  2012  will  be  on  the  record And  I  saw  the  dead,  great  and  small,  standing  before  the  throne,  and  books   were  opened.  Another  book  was  opened,  which  is  the  book  of  life.  The  dead   were  judged  according  to  what  they  had  done  as  recorded  in  the   books.  Revela5on  20:12

Parenting Tips Develop a Family Vision "Without a  vision,  the  people  perish." These  9meless  words  from  the  Bible  have  inspired   mankind  throughout  the  ages,  reminding  us  of  the   necessity  to  think  about  the  future  and  our  role  in   it.  As  a  parent,  it's  easy  to  forget  the  vision  part  as   we  are  caught  up  in  the  "tyranny  of  the  urgent"  and   the  day-­‐to-­‐day  challenges  of  raising  children. Many  overwhelmed  parents  ins9tute  a  bunch  of   rules  and  rou9nes  to  help  get  through  each  day.   But  don't  mistake  having  a  list  of  "dos"  and  "don'ts"   for  paren9ng  -­‐  it's  more  like  policing.  Having  rules   without  telling  our  children  what  they  mean  in   context  of  their  future  can  leave  them  feeling  frustrated  and  angry.  Worse  s9ll,  living   a  legalis9c  life  can  result  in  emp9ness.  Yes,  your  children  should  obey  you  just   because  you  "said  so",  but  paren9ng  also  involves  inspiring  them  to  do  so. Today's  culture  teaches  our  kids  to  live  for  the  moment,  to  fulfill  selfish  desires  and   cravings,  and  says  very  liPle  about  who  -­‐  not  just  what  -­‐  they  should  become.  No   one  is  inspiring  and  encouraging  our  children  to  become  adults  whose  lives  are   marked  by  strong  moral  character,  goodness,  truth  and  joy.  We  need  to  set  the   vision  clearly  before  them  -­‐  and  you  can't  do  that  with  just  a  set  of  rules.  If  you  don't   thougheully  connect  your  rules  with  how  they  help  your  children  have  a  beau9ful,   meaningful  life,  you  have  missed  the  opportunity  to  raise  sons  and  daughters  of   purpose. Write  a  vision  statement  for  each  of  your  children.  This  doesn't  mean  you  are  telling   them  WHAT  you  want  them  to  be,  rather,  it's  WHO  you  want  them  to  become. Nothing  creates  more  happiness  and  hope  in  a  young  heart  than  knowing  that  mom   and  dad  believe  you  are  capable  of  greatness. Take  the  9me  to  inspire  your  children  by  sharing  your  vision  of  a  bright  future  for   their  lives.  Let  them  know  that  you  want  them  to  be  marked  by  integrity,  fidelity,   love  and  compassion  for  others.  Tell  them  that  you  are  commiPed  to  them,  and  that   you  will  do  everything  in  your  power  to  help  them  become  a  man  or  woman  of   grace  and  strength. I  was  blessed  to  have  a  mom  and  dad  who  taught  me  that  if  I  worked  hard,  sought   God  daily,  and  lived  with  integrity,  the  sky  was  the  limit.  They  inspired  me  to  believe   that  I  could  reach  for  the  stars  and  actually  touch  them.  And  they  also  reminded  me   that  the  most  important  thing  in  life  was  to  be  the  woman  that  God  created  me  to   be.  Being  conscious  of  those  visions  at  a  young  age  helped  me  understand  the   importance  of  making  wise  choices  and  of  following  their  rules.  It's  sort  of  like   knowing  that  a  key  purpose  of  the  Ten  Commandments  is  to  cause  us  to  live  in   harmony  with  God  and  our  fellow  man.  When  we  understand  the  wonderful  vision,   the  list  suddenly  makes  sense  and  becomes  easier  and  even  fulfilling  to  keep. When  we  teach  our  children  to  dream,  hope,  and  plan  for  a  beau9ful  future,  we  are   helping  to  make  that  dream  a  reality.  When  they  can  see  our  own  hopes  and  dreams   for  their  lives,  then  our  daily  rules  start  making  sense. And  there's  an  added  bonus  that  comes  with  talking  to  your  child  about  the  value   of  having  and  holding  on  to  a  vision  of  loveliness:  it  will  help  keep  that  vision  clear   for  your  own  life  too. Rebecca  Hagelin  is  a  public  speaker  on  the  family  and  culture  and  the  author  of  the   new  best  seller,  30  Ways  in  30  Days  to  Save  Your  Family.

Resolution Magnet Make this New Year's resolution magnet craft for kids they can stick with all year long. Hang it on the refrigerator so that your kids are reminded of it daily.

Tips

What you'll need: • • • • • • •

Talk to your children about the significance of making resolutions each New Year. Choose whatever color construction paper you wish, our choices are only suggestions.

White and light blue construction paper Crayons Black fine tip marker White craft glue or glue stick Scissors Magnet strip Laminating paper (optional)

How to make it: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Cut a sheet of white construction paper in half. Across the top write “I RESOLVE” with a crayon of your choice. Use a fine tip black marker to outline your crayon. Choose your resolution and use the fine tip black marker to write it below the title (i.e. “to keep my room clean”) Use crayons to draw a colorful picture depicting your resolution below the words. Trim the white construction paper so that all sides of your artwork are even. Glue your artwork to a piece of light blue construction paper. Trim the blue paper to create a nice border frame for your art. If you choose to laminate, do it now, before adding the magnet. Glue a magnet strip (or use self-stick magnet strip) to the back of your resolution art and hang on the refrigerator.

5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Pastorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Profile Pastor Windsor Toussaint Sound &Technical Ministries It is a privilege and honor to be at Global Kingdom Ministries, which I came to know through my wife, Pastor Patrice. At the age of thirteen, I knew that service in ministry would be my life. I never had much of an opportunity to live a rebellious life, because as a teen, my life was church, school, home and many, many prayer meetings. It was there, being surrounded by the faithful grandmothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the church, that I understood the power and beauty of salvation and what a privilege it was and is to be SAVED. I have a 20-year career working in television and radio, 10 of which has been in Christian Ministry which has allowed me the opportunity to travel to different countries, gaining knowledge and experience while doing something I thoroughly enjoy. I believe the best part of my life (besides being married to Patrice) is the opportunity to fulfill my destiny by using the skills and experiences that I have gleaned over the years to benefit the church. I look forward to this journey that God is taking us on in life and ministry.
