    30 MAR. 2024 · 🎙️ Winnowed Warrior🎙️ The Threshing Floor Recap: In our latest episode, hosted by Paul, Bryan, Ashton, and Jay, we revisited James 2:19-26, delving deeper into the nuanced relationship between faith and action.

True faith requires active commitment and alignment with the teachings of Christ.

Our creed, rooted in the Beatitudes, serves as a guiding light in our journey of faith and discipleship. 📖 God's Waiting Room: Ashton brought a fresh perspective, likening our spiritual journey to being in God's waiting room. However, unlike a passive wait at a doctor's office, we recognize that God, the Great Physician, is waiting on us to align our hearts and actions with His will. 💡 Putting God First: Paul brought forth the tough story of Abraham and Isaac, illustrating the importance of prioritizing God above all else, even our most cherished gifts. Drawing parallels to Jonah's reluctance, Paul challenged us to walk in faith and obedience, always putting God first in our lives, even before our spouses and children. 🌾 Divine Work Unveiled: Jay tied the conversation together by referencing God's message to Habakkuk, highlighting the awe-inspiring nature of God's work in our lives. Just as Habakkuk was astounded by God's plans, we are reminded that God's work often surpasses our understanding, calling us to trust in His sovereignty. Moving Forward: As we reflect on our discussion on WW's The Threshing Floor, let us be inspired to deepen our faith and commitment to living out the principles of the Beatitudes. May we embrace the transformative power of true faith, recognizing that God is continually at work in our lives, shaping us for His divine purposes.

Welcome to The Threshing Floor!

Here, we put off what the world says to us and strive to create a safe place for the broken to share with and learn from one another.

Our lives at this very moment are a direct reflection of both the decisions that we have made and the impact of how we've responded to the decisions others have made.

As a Winnowed Warrior, you will be challenged to Accept, to Grieve, to Admit, to Desire, to Strive, to Work, to Seek, to Follow, to Rejoice, and ultimately to LOVE as you have been called.

This ministry is based on the Beatitudes and is all about Jesus.

So come on in - and prepare to get uncomfortable as we shed the world and put on God’s Word!

Love Ya'll.... Jay
