These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
John 15:11 (KJV)
As we put our trust in Jesus, let us remember that His desire for us is that we are filled with His joy. There should be great joy in our walk with the Lord, for no matter what we face in the area of circumstances and conditions, we are joined to Him who has overcome the world. And as we abide in Him, we get to partake in that overcoming! So today, let us give thanks that there is a joy ever available to us that is not of this world. As we open ourselves to this joy through abiding in His Word and letting His Word abide in us, we will soon discover that, as Scripture says in another place, the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Foundational Text: 1 John 3:1-3
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
1 John 3:1-3 (KJV)
If you have been following this website, you may have been wondering, what exactly is Graceway. Are we a church? An online ministry? Or something else all together?
And the answer is this: the vision behind Graceway is for us to become a church!
I do not know the exact time frame for this, yet God has most clearly put it on my heart that this is what His vision is for this ministry, and furthermore He is now leading me to begin to share this, to speak life into the vision.
Currently, we are in very early stages, with “Graceway Fellowship Gatherings” about to start in Los Angeles this summer. And in addition to that, you can expect regular video sermons such as this one today. Also, look out for downloadable audio versions of our messages to be made available shortly.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out this website, and I pray—whoever you are, and wherever you may find yourself—that this video message will inspire you, encourage you, challenge you, and invite you to grow in your walk with the Lord. It is my heart for us to realize that God is inviting us all to continuously go deeper in our walk and in our fellowship with Him, yet to never forget that, no matter how deep we go, it is always about serving the people He is leading into our paths every single day. It is about understanding that we, as the Church, are all being called to shine the light of Christ in this world that is in such need of healing and salvation.
So with that said, may you shine your light for Jesus, and may you catch a revelation that He is calling you to fulfill both your purpose and your mission in Him.
Much love and many blessings,
