Quotes from Christian Basiga: One of the greatest gifts we have of being alive is the ability to give, receive and even lose love.
TweetI was speaking to the leader of a church network recently and during our conversation he said: ‘I like you.
Tozer once said: ‘the church began in power, moved in power and moved as long as she had power.
Last year I went to the 15th Anniversary celebration for an organisation that does amazing work with marginalised young people in London.
I have to confess that I did wonder what would happen if those 3,250 people joined the organisation I was with as volunteers.
I think that a vibrant faith includes risk taking, adventure, sacrifice and the willingness to be the answer to your own prayers. A church leader friend of mine told me recently that he wants to see revival come to his town.
So come on let’s be what we supposed to be – look outward, get involved, take a few risks and see what God does with us.
Why do you think that some Christians find it easier to be inward focused rather than outward focused?
I was part of meeting of leaders recently and we recognised (confessed even) that we’d oversold the gospel and undersold the cost.
I’m not sure though that you can make a direct relation to those praying and those getting involved.
As we pray we will want to get involved in projects, our money becomes more useful and we seek His glory before our own. As Jesus is lifted high in our congregations, we will through Gods grace and Holy Spirit become people who are outward focused. I think possibly the reason that we fail to get involved in our communities as much as we should are because it’s hard.
I think this is the sin of the western church (and I include myself in this) that we are too married to comfort to be truly radical. I think we need to recapture what it means to live a life of generosity, grace, kindness and love. I work with Compassion UK as the Events & Ambassadors Director; this involves working with events, bands, speakers and artists to help them to use their platforms to communicate about justice.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.
In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful. We are facing some kind of phantom, a certain person or party, who are professionals and who have hatched a terrorist plot and are carrying it out.


Threats to our faith are always present and, as Christians, our fight is against the powers of this world that call us away from God. When she no longer had power she dug in for safety and sought to conserve her gains!’ Unfortunately, I think Tozer is right – too many of us are simply digging in for safety and trying to maintain what we’ve got; rather than working hard to see the Kingdom come.
You’d expect to me to say that I think that attending events and conferences are great things to do. While he and his church are waiting and praying for that to happen they are working to ‘revive’ their town. Instead of talking about the long hard journey of faith we’ve turned it into a one stop shop where people can come to get their hurts healed, their energy refilled, their hopes lifted and once a week they can feel great as they sing at the top of their lungs. We’ve told people to come as they are but forgotten to add that they need to give all that they are.
And of course it will and they are -but if we give to get, we’re not really giving are we? In our experience those who turn up for a prayer meeting, tend to be those who roll up their sleeves and get involved. As we walk with Him follow Him, spend time talking with Him, learning for His word – we see the world as Jesus sees it. I think I am challenged precisely because of your lack of hypocrisy; your integrity and determination to make a difference, even at personal cost, and not just take the easy way. It’s much more likely to be a failure than if we focus our energies on worship and good Christian meetings.
Half of me wants this to change – but the other half doesn’t want to be uncomfortable! Over time it’s become about being a true as I can be to what I believe God has every right to expect of me. I picture it a bit like them enjoying the scraps of an amazing banquet, which as scraps go is pretty decent; but in some ways these scraps are innoculating them to the knowledge that there is an amazing banquet waiting for them outside the 4 walls of the church.
I enjoy drinking coffee, wearing Converse, hanging out with my family and friends, and watching films.
I was struck by his observation that many leaders were claiming to be something they are not. She told me in no uncertain terms that she didn’t mind me being a Christian but ‘don’t you dare be a hypocrite…’ I knew that if she ever caught me saying I was something I wasn’t – I’d be in big trouble.
On the other side of London 3,250 people had gathered for a worship event to pray for revival.
But if they ever become a replacement for getting involved in our communities or churches we’ve got a massive problem.
They run a free festival every summer; school breakfast clubs every day and a whole host of other community activities.


The journey from that place to the place where we genuinely think about how we can change the world (without our own reputation being the motivating factor in that) is a hard and costly road that involves us being prepared to let parts of us go, die even. They say they've been frustrated for a year and a half in getting this investigation into whether the administration twisted the intelligence and they're making no apologies whatsoever for it. When we put on the armor of God’s word,  and remember that Jesus goes with us, we can face down every enemy and rest assured that we will come out victorious. We tell people what they will get out of it if they follow – forgive and it will release you, give and get more in return, serve and you will be rewarded, if not here then in heaven. As we re-image Jesus, as we develop our picture of Him, we will pray like He does for the world. He sees the wars that rage within us and has an endless supply of strength for those who turn to him. When we are overwhelmed by the fight in front of us, we can take heart that God is with us.
Wars are won by those who throw up their shields and slowly, but surely, push back against the enemy wall until it is to weak to stand any longer. When we hold up our troubles against his truth, we are shielded from the worry that so often defeats us. When we grow weary, what is important to remember is that God has a far better grasp of our capacities than we do. If we are to be true soldiers in Christ’s army, we have to full knowledge of just how strong we are in Him. May the give you strength to fight on, peace in knowing the outcome, and refreshment from the joy of certain victory. Take heart mighty warrior, you are fighting on the winning side.Article by Jada PryorI am a married to my best friend, the proud Momma of the world’s coolest kiddos, and so in love with God that it brings me to my knees.
I don’t always understand Him, sometimes argue with Him, but am eternally grateful to have been saved by Him. I have a blog called A Nap and A Prayer where I blog about my adventures as a God Girl and Stay at Home Mama.
