Our Vision
“I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” Philippians 3:10

It is our VISION and call, and commitment to point the church back onto the path of making disciples. It is our passion and directive to lead Christians away from our false perceptions and into His way.

We desire to see a church committed to His purpose and poured out to His ways. Then we will see revival through real prayer and devotion to His Lordship.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105 KJV

Into Thy Word Ministries teaches people how to study the Bible in a simple, clear, and concise way, discipling pastors and missionaries, providing seminars, speaking,church consulting, discipleship tools and resources for Christian growth.

Do you want to know what the Will of God is for your life?

Seeking and searching, in our contemporary language, suggests looking for something that is not there or can’t be seen. But, is this what we do when we search for the Will of God? When most Christians say they want God’s Will, they may actually want Christ to do their will! So, what is “seeking” about? More


rom838[1]
Hidden? Mysterious? Undeterminable? Ask the average Christian in the pew and they will concede that they passionately desire to know what God is up to in their lives. They want to know God's plan, His will for their Life. So they can better lead their lives. Yet at the same time they will admit their frustrations in seeking it, that their fears creep in saying they cannot live it. Or that it may be just too hard to find. And if you ask them again what they think that will may be, they will utter several self-doubting answers. More

We must have the firm desire to surrender ourselves to the will of the Father!  However this surrendering we do is not giving up our distinction and personality. It does not make us eunuchs and robots who serve a master out of obligation and employment or out of a predetermined program. It is the refusal to surrender our will that leads us astray and away from His perfect will. More


godwithus[1]
When our relationship with Christ is what it should be-THEN we will be in HIS WILL!!! Then we will be able to make good decisions. Then we will understand the road bumps of life, how to learn and grow from them. To be a better servant by being a better child of His. More


standwithhim[1]
We need to focus on the source; especially those of us who are not experienced in letting God lead us and are easily turned off the path from what seems to be common sense and good opportunities.  But these in fact are sometimes tricks of Satan to mislead us and confuse us. Sometimes we misinterpret our own will as being what God's will is.  What we think might be the leading of the Holy Spirit may not be from Him at all but just our own selfish inclinations.  Our focus needs to be on what God has revealed to us through More


hetouchedme[1]
God has given us a wonderful gift;our mind!!! We have the ability to process information and to discern our situation. Yet, this is a difficult task. We tend to like the easy way out which does not involve too much thought. This is a result of our fast paced and fast food society, where we want the burger NOW!!! And we want our information now too. More


hope_for_the_hopeless[1]
God’s wisdom is seen by His grace, which provides us a way out of our sinful nature, by the means of redemption.  This was His choice, His decision, for His glory (Psalm 46:10).   God works by choosing us (Psalm 104:24; Proverbs 3:19-20) and then, God gives us the means to carry out His plan (Psalm 145:13-16).
    Whatever decision or dilemma you face, relationships, money, career or whatever… you can rest assured that God has an example and advice for you to follow. More


if_god_is_for_us[1]
Life seems like putting together a puzzle without looking at the picture on the box. We pray and hope we are doing it right, but sometimes its like working in the dark. God's will is a mystery; there is no doubt about it. Mainly because we are not mature enough to handle the truth of what is ahead. If we do know, then we are likely to be cowards and flee! So, God reveals his plan to us slowly, just as you start feeding a toddler. You start slowly and gradually increase in the amount and types of food. Only God knows for sure what our finished life will be like, More


in_his_hands[1]
Decisions! Decisions! & Decisions!!! Each of us faces scores and scores and just a huge amount of choices each day. Confronted by either an employment choice, place to live, who will I marry or which socks shall I wear, we decide from the major to the minor: Yet, most of us have learned there is no easy process to automatically know what God is thinking. Mainly because we clutter our minds with all of our own desires so God’s seem to be pushed aside. More


incontrol[1]
Jesus calls us to be for Him; that is to be nourished and grow, as a plant is nourished and grows.  As a plant sinks its roots deeper into the soil to receive richer nourishment, so must we sink our will into the depth of Christ and yield to His riches and splendor.  Our relationship to Christ is not about a way of thinking or a particular theology but it is to Christ Himself. More


jesusstyle[1]
Obedience is the foundation of knowing God’s will.  Without obedience, nothing can happen.  For us to be the friend of Jesus, He asks us to, “…lay down our life for His friends…” (John 15:13-15).  We must make a conscious decision to give ourselves to Christ.  This is not a suicide clause, not at all!  What it is about is a life filled with giving wonder and excitement.  Yet, it goes against our natural way of thinking and this is where our will collides with God’s will.  And, we have the choice to obey or face difficulties.  So, let us do it with cheerfulness and More


never_alone[1]
Abraham in Genesis 22 faced a crisis, which was interpreting God’s will as having to kill his son.  Abraham had to learn he had to do anything, no matter what the cost, to be totally dependent and obedient to God, no matter how much it went against his convictions and belief system. More


neverthirst[1]
John 15 is the most beautiful description of our relationship to our LORD.  He wants us to be with Him!  Just as Christ wanted the disciples along His side, training them, loving them, enjoying their companionship, He wants that of us: love, closeness, and relationship. This is our primary call and the will of the LORD. Everything else falls from this prime directive. He loves me! And wants to be with me! Do we want to be with Him? Do we want that close, loving relationship?  Do we want to walk as Abraham walked, building altars? More


not_afraid[1]
Do not assume that to be in God’s Will, our lives must be harsh and filled with no fun! God’s purpose may be vague; yet, our call is to respond out of our love, which comes from the grace He provided as a result of the guilt of sin! More


inyourlight[1]
Virtue is not the talk of the town these days; in fact it is depicted in our culture as weak and useless. It is the butt of jokes. It is forgotten as part of a perceived bygone era filled with contempt and arrogance. To be a person of character is to be alone and endure criticism by the world and even by some so-called Christians. Virtue calls us higher to a level where few people desire to go, because it is an assault against the self will. It flies in the face what we expect and desire to do and to be. More


runstraight[1]
We need to put out the effort and do. Rom. 12:1-3 tells us “to present ourselves as living sacrifices holy and pleasing to God…” just like a Marine finishing boot camp and placing himself for duty; so must we place ourselves in His service.  We are to offer ourselves daily!  Before our feet hit the ground when we get out of bed, our focus is to be in His will! Jesus is our supreme commander, so say “Yes sir, here I am, ready for service!” More


matt7_7[1]
I love to talk to missionaries and hear their stories. It gives me a sense of perspective of how God works. I have heard some of the most heart wrenching stories and such great efforts to overcome great difficulties. Stories of a spouse being killed and the other taking over, such as with Elizabeth Elliott and her incredible story of how her husband was speared by South American Indians. More

Have you considered that pride is in the same category as the ‘big’ sins of homosexuality, adultery and the like? Perhaps you are shocked? Maybe you never thought through how pride impacts others, or it’s impact on our sanctification, or how God feels about it? Well check our Romans 1: 26-32! More

old scribe
The classic work of 'Saint Alphonsus de Ligouri' 1696- 1787

“Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: ‘Charity is the bond of perfection;’ and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God’s.” The essence of perfection is to embrace the will of God in all things, prosperous or adverse. In prosperity, even sinners find it easy to unite themselves to the divine will; but it takes saints to unite themselves to God’s will when things go wrong and are painful to self-love. Our conduct in such instances is the measure of our love of God. More

JESUS ' Model to Know God's Will
 

JESUS ' Model to Know God’s Will Matt. 26:36-46 

 

I. His strong assurance. "Father."

  • The character of God. 

2. His encouragement. "My father!"

  • Experience of the Father's trustworthiness. 

3. His outreach for others. "Watch with me!"

  • Wanted others with Him in the struggle. 

4. His acknowledgment of need. "Sorrowful--even to death!"

  • Owned His feelings openly--amazing freedom from guilt! 

5. His acceptance of individuality. "A little farther!"

  • Willingness to go it alone. Ultimately we stand before God as a solitary! 

6. His persistent appeal. "If it be possible!"

  • The petition not answered--the person was! His dominant desire always had been to glorify the Father (John 17:1-5) and save the lost (Luke 19:10). That deepest prayer was heard! 

7. His acceptance of the Father's better Way. "Never-the-less." 

8. His immediate experience, inner peace, and power endure. 

9. His ultimate answer, His resurrection, ascension, and outpoured spirit.
