As children of the king and carriers of the atmosphere of another world, we are
commissioned with the responsibility of advancing the kingdom of God in a way that
darkness is destroyed and lives are redeemed and transformed.

Currently, Holy Spirit is leading a fresh wave of understanding and re-grounding
of New Testament bible concepts like the kingdom, the gospel, and community. For
years church culture has represented a model where the leader does all the spiritual
work and the people play follow the leader as he or she exercises their ministry.
But God is up to something entirely different.
In the New Testament we see believers united in love, living and worshipping together
and moving in supernatural encounters as they go about their daily lives. Kingdom
minded people are always leading significant lives because their priorities have
been realigned. Kingdom minded people are always destroying darkness and changing
culture because they bring with them greater hope, love, and creativity wherever

When ambassadors are sent to other countries to negotiate, they are anything but
insignificant. They travel with full diplomatic rights and the ability to speak
and make decisions for their home country. In many ways, we are living as ambassadors
as well. We are ambassadors of another world, a world who has a King and who has
a kingdom. With that in mind, we can no longer live insignificant lives. What does
significance feel like? Mostly it feels like finding your way down a dimly lit path,
unsure of you're next move....but it also feels like dreaming big dreams with God,
making courageous choices and taking brave steps with Holy Spirit.
What is the first step to living a significant kingdom life? It starts with and
ends with His presence. Learning to host His presence more and better every day.
Hosting is an active thing, something that we partner with. When we host His presence,
heaven is released naturally. Where ever you go and whatever you do, your significance
is not based on performance, not based on what you've done, but based on whose you
are and the presence of Jesus on your life.
Hosting His presence isn't a selfish activity, it's the only hope for the world.
Be aware of Him today and be aware of His activity. We host His presence because
we understand that His presence is essential for the deliverance of people which
is our assignment here on earth. Hosting His presence isn't a selfish activity,
it's the only hope for the world.
