Love and Relationship:
We were created for love by love, and for Relationship first with God, then with others.
Love is Jesus’s power. The fruit in living infilled with Jesus power produces a life pattern of responsibility. Responsible for what? Responsible for the condition of our own hearts. When we live responsible for receiving healing from Jesus as a lifestyle, relationships are restored.
Psalm 139 13-17 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them.
Repentance does not start with behavior, but with the heart.
Is your Source of Truth, Jesus? Repentance takes each thought captive and lines it up to the knowledge of God. Repentance allows the Holy Spirit to expose thoughts that come from other sources and to receive and entertain thoughts that come from Him. The battle begins in the mind. When we use our weapon that Jesus gave us by the cross, repentance, He can change the way we think, which changes the way we feel, which changes the choices that we make. Repentance has two functions: First - it's the Key to the kingdom of heaven. Secondly, repentance is a mighty weapon against strongholds.
2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
The natural realm is not reality. Reality is the spirit realm.
Imagine you were 35 years old before you began understanding the language that your parents spoke in your home? Do you see confusion? Our heavenly Father’s language is reality. If we are not understanding and speaking His language, we are living in the confusion of darkness. We are not at war against flesh and blood but against principalities. When we are not understanding and speaking the language of our family that we are adopted into, then we are losing the battle and may not even know it.
Remind Yourself of the Truth
The context of Dance Again Ministries is unique because Dance Again is a culture, a lifestyle. A lifestyle is shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization. We are a group of people who live infilled with the Power of Jesus and teach others how to do the same. This is discipleship.
Dreams are birthed and made a reality when a person lives a lifestyle of discipleship.
Organizations birthed through this culture, are called sister ministries to Dance Again because each organization is trained and built on the culture of discipleship. We provide services to our Sister Ministries as well as other establishments.
The Proposal: When an institution requests our help, we find out their need and then target that need specifically. A proposal is written that expresses both the problem and how Dance Again can provide in improving upon their current situation. This way, the communication and expectations between the two organizations is clear and in writing.
Service Fee: Dance Again charges for this service so that there is an investment made by the client. This investment promotes accountability and provides the client an expectation to receive what they’ve asked for. The fee is negotiated between the two organizations and then the proposal is signed. This is not a binding contract but an informal dual-purpose Service Level Agreement:
1) A negotiation tool to balance the user demands against the resources available.
2) The definition of reasonability.
Ephesians 6:12 Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
