David Diga Hernandez: "All you need is a vision from God and the faith to step into it." | Image courtesy: davidhernandezministries.com
The Surrendered Life: On this edition of Spirit Church, David Diga Hernandez challenges you to go to higher places in the Spirit through embracing the cross. The Gospel is not about self-help; it is about self-abandonment. It is not about the pursuit of our own dreams; it is about the pursuit of the will of God.
If you want to truly experience all that Christ has offered to you, then you must die to yourself. Before you experience the riches of Heaven, you must experience the stripping away of self.
Dr. Myles Munroe: "When you believe in your dream and your vision, then it begins to attract its own resources. No one was born to be a failure." | Image courtesy: munroeglobal.com
Dr. Myles Munroe: Success is designed by God to be predictable. So you can literally plan success. I am successful today in my life, globally impacting millions of people because I made a decision as a teenager as to what I want to be and do.
God designed everything he created to be successful. You will never see a bird who cannot fly naturally. You never see a fish who cannot swim naturally. Every seed, if you put it in the ground and give it water, you don't need to pray. It is designed to bring forth the tree.

Sample Lyrics from "All My Hope Is In Jesus"
I've been held by the Savior
I've felt fire from above
I've been down to the river
I ain't the same, a prodigal returned
All my hope is in Jesus
Thank God my yesterday's gone
All my sins are forgiven
I've been washed by the blood...
Mark Wahlberg: "The first thing I do when I start my day is, I get down on my hands and knees and give thanks to God." | Image courtesy: cbs.com
After Mark Wahlberg was sent to prison at age 16, he realized the need to turn his life around. He relied on his faith and hard work to stay out of trouble. Now a successful actor, producer, businessman and devoted family man with four children.
His story reminds us that no matter what you have done, no matter how many times you have done it, God offers you another chance to turn your life around.
Pastor Jentezen Franklin: "He (God) created us to love like we've never been hurt because that is what He does, and we are made in His image." | Image courtesy: jentezenfranklin.org
Pastor Jentezen Franklin teaches how God uses offenses in our lives to make us even stronger. We can allow words to “blow up bridges, or heal wounded hearts.” We’ve all been hurt, but God wants us to use that pain and move forward. If love always wins, then why not Love Like You’ve Never Been Hurt?
