“To what can we compare the kingdom of God? With what parable shall we present it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds sown upon the earth. But after it is planted, it grows to be larger than all garden plants and puts forth great branches, so that the birds of the air nest in its shade.”
God gave a small seed the capacity to produce an entire forest and God often uses small matches to light great fires. No matter how small you feel in the world, God has written a story about your life that contains the purpose and reason you walk this earth.
You have been called into greatness by the King of Kings. He will not force, and He will not demand but He is inviting you to join the story He is writing throughout history. The story of adventure, the story of courage, the story of hero’s choosing Joy and Peace as they overcome every attack of their enemy. Sons and daughters who choose to say yes to their Father in Heaven because they trust Him.
You are a special piece of the story that God is writing on this earth. You have a specific role to play in the epic narrative of history.
Will you answer the call?
Will you step forward?
Will you say “Yes”?
Are you willing to do what it takes to see change in this world?
Do you feel the desire for more burning inside of you?
Our Torchbearer’s Discipleship Training School is an intensified school for those who desire not just to know about God, but to know Him personally in a way that changes how they live their life. It is for those who want to discover God’s loving heart and to learn how to walk in all that God is inviting them into.
God’s heart is to redeem. To take what was lost and to restore it to its original purpose and design. His heart is to take our lives and make us new so that we can live the life of fulfillment that He created us to live. That He would give us the courage to walk the path of adventure and danger He has laid out for us.
When we say yes to Him and choose to lay down our lives at his feet we become new creations. We are finally able to receive his love in the way that was lost in the garden and we “are transferred from darkness to light, from the power of Satan to the power of God” (Acts 26:18). Intimate fellowship and oneness with God is once again restored when we give our lives to him. We become once again his image bearers and as we abide in him we are transformed into his image from glory to glory.
It is in this place that our birthright of being called children of God is restored and as we say yes to Him every day, we become just like our Father. We begin to love unconditionally and redeem the world around us as we reflect his image through our words and actions. In this way, we begin to be the answer to the prayer, “Your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Because His desires become our desires, it is as if everything that comes under our authority comes under his authority. In our oneness with him we become Christians; “Little-Christs” who re-present Christ to a lost and dying world. This is what it is to be a torchbearer. To be one who carries the fiery love and light of his presence into the darkness of this world and shine so that the world would have a true representation of the love their Creator. That the heart of their Father and their King would be made known to the lost Children of God. That the world would know that God longs to redeem them and restore them to be once again called the children of God. That He takes the broken who come to him and makes them Kings on the earth and priests unto their God.
We desire that as you journey through this school you will have the opportunity to reflect on your past, taking all that Holy Spirit has already given you and step into the direction and calling that God has for your future life.
Join the force of torchbearers and watch as the world is transformed starting within ourselves.
