WALKING IN GOD’S GLORY
as His Family & Ecclesia in Australia
We retreat to humbly wait on God, as His children who earnestly seek Him, listening, worshipping and cherishing His presence, His Word, His revelation of who He is and who we are. We are God’s family and ecclesia, beloved sons seated at our Father’s right hand, walking in His glory, reflecting His likeness in humble servanthood, utter reliance and trust and radical obedience, overflowing His love, declaring His will and releasing His Kingdom in our nation and our world.
We are God’s guests: We retreat from man’s agenda to be guests of God Himself. We are invited by God to meet with Him and walk with Him. Be led by the Spirit of God to come as sons and daughters and fix your eyes on Jesus and know the glory of the Father’s face turned to you. Come – expecting to encounter God and open to contribute, as the Spirit of God leads you.
Key Scripture: includes Isaiah 55
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:22-23
“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed…
in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.” Romans 8:19-21
“In Him [Christ] we have redemption through His blood… that in the dispensation of the fullness of time He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.” Ephesians 1:2-23. Note: 1:7, 9, 10 NKJV
“There is a divine mystery—a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it’s being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!
“Christ is our message! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth. It has become my inspiration and passion in ministry to labor with a tireless intensity, with his power flowing through me, to present to every believer the revelation of being his perfect one in Jesus Christ.” Colossians 1:26-29
