Killing a Critical Spirit

Posted by Matt Shull in Blog. Comments Off on Killing a Critical Spirit

22nd September

I want you to succeed in life. I’ve learned you will never reach your full potential in God if you have a critical spirit. I used to have a really critical spirit. I would pre-judge people, criticize other ministers and thought I had all the answers. My critical spirit peaked in college and about that time God began to sharply deal with me. Now I walk in love, mercy and understanding. Let me give you 3 reasons to kill a critical spirit:

1) It is not love. God has commanded us to love our neighbor. I’m convinced many believers are not walking this out on a daily basis.

James 2:8 “You are doing right if you obey this law from the highest authority: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” – (GWT)

2) You increase the judgement on your own life. The only … Read More »

Hello Partners and Friends,

Genesis 26:1-6; 12-14 – “Now there was a famine in the land—besides the earlier famine of Abraham’s time—and Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines in Gerar. The LORD appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham. I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspringa all nations on earth will be blessed, because Abraham obeyed me and kept my requirements, my commands, my decrees and my laws.” … Read More »

Hello Partners & Friends

Recently Phillip, one of our ‘Dudes on Skunks’, came back from a missions trip to Nigeria. While he was at the airport a Nigerian man, who was loading his luggage, stopped him and said, “Hey aren’t you on that show Skunks TV?” Phillip was surprised that the man recognized him and said “yeah I am.” When Phillip relayed the story to me I was reminded again, we never know who is watching.

Also this past month a lady came up to me and told me her 60 year-old brother watches us all the time. He’s been away from God for years and he has recently come back. She said that Skunks TV was one of the avenues that God used to open him back up to the gospel. Even though our show is aimed at a younger audience … Read More »

The Working Class

1st September

In our recession we are seeing a generation struggling to find work. We have a lack of jobs for all the workers who are eager to work. However, in the Kingdom of God we have a different problem. We have more work than we can imagine but we cannot seem to find the ‘workers’ who will get the job done.

Luke 10:2 – These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. (NLT)

Bill Wilson of Metro Ministries said recently, “If you’re going to plow a field do you want to use a 1000 chickens or 2 oxen?” Then he said, “Don’t be a chicken.” Many of us believers ‘chicken’ out of the Great Commission. … Read More »

Spheres of Influence

1st August

Mark 16:15,16 – “Then he said to them, “As you go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to everyone. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever doesn’t believe will be condemned.” (ISV) We are supposed to go into the entire world. In the ‘world’ there exists different spheres or circles of influence. There is the medical world, there is the life of a policeman, there is someone in the armed services world.

Because people are involved in different ‘worlds’ it is important for us to venture into their world and identify with them to lead them to Christ. This is why God has called His entire body to witness. The reality is that there are some people that have been burned by an evangelist and they will never listen to Alyssa and I. Others have been personally … Read More »
