The idea of mentoring is pretty much ingrained in our corporate and educational culture, but our Father is the Master Mentor. From Day One He has be communicating to all of His children how to find true freedom.
When I wrote Mentored by God, Finding Our Way in A Darkening World, I was particulary struck by how Jesus was mentored by His Father. His example encourages me to press forward as a mentor – to encourage those who are stepping up for the benefit of future God generations.
As current events unfold it is easy to feel the weight of isolation, unbelief, and the doctrines of demons laced throughout our culture. Hearing from God as to how He wants you and me to mentor generations is key to the growth of the Kingdom and the survival of our culture. Because prayer for spiritual awakening via the power of God is so key, we invite you as mentors to pray bold prayers. Catalyst.city is a way to connect on this. Check it out!
Here is a good home-base session on Mentoring.
We live within a major mis-understanding of identity regarding men and women.
We’ve allowed our worst attributes and fears fuel a new identity paradigm — apart from Design and original intent. Instead of men and women being created with equal value before God, we fill our souls with distorted corrective strategies. We then pass on this un-anchored mess to future generations, and our leaders and philosophers fuel organic decay at an alarming rate.
Fourthstream tackles the challenge of being mentored by God and encouraging others in the mentoring journey. The video above frames the conversation and provides trajectory for wrestling with all of the issues presented by confusion about male and female roles, gender issues, and the anger and/or passivity that is currently fueling the Man of God/Woman of God conversation.
Here are links to posts for our Coming Home get togethers where we engaged key group conversations about 6 areas which help us on our journey to become a man or woman of God. We think you will enjoy them!
