Minister Joseph Shepherd

Hello to you all, again, on this joyous day that the Lord has given to us. I pray that all is well with you, and I just wanted to share a little something that the Lord placed on my heart. Often, we seem to be caught up in the flow of life that and we forget to just enjoy breathing. We forget that Grace goes before us daily to protect us from any hurt, harm, or danger. As we are instructed, we are to continue trusting the Father in all things that we do so that we can live our lives serving him! Real brief, I want to share with you one of the things that I was able to learn in Masterclass. Some may remember it or this may be new to those who have not started it yet.

I was able to learn about the T.T.E.A.R. process within Masterclass, to which at first, it didn’t make sense until I began to progress through the course and complete all the assignments. The mental/physical toll it puts on your body can be straining but, spiritually, it is one of the greatest sacrifices I’ve done to my flesh. TTEAR simply stands for “Teach, Train, Equip, Activate, and Release.” This method is applicable to many, if not all, areas of our lives. As you read them in order, you will begin to see how they correlate.

Many of the things in life that we learned while growing up, carnally and spiritually, are all behaviors that we learned from others. For example, being taught to cook, clean, ride a bike, etc. Even spiritually, we’re taught how to pray, trust the Father, and how to study the word we are given. I thank the Father for the example he was able to give me through my parents to help me see how this process really goes. We train individually on all of these things while storing up knowledge for ourselves. When we are fully equipped with this knowledge, we are able to apply it to every situation, whether it’s spiritually or carnally. Holy Spirit then activates within us, which emboldens us to trust the Father and acknowledge our own roles within the living-loving organism. Lastly, is release. We then share this newfound revelation/information that we obtained with others so that they may start this process for themselves. The release is going ye into the world to then preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I pray that something I have shared has sparked a light bulb moment for you. Being able to apply this process to any and everything that we may go through is a beautiful key to have. As we embrace life step by step, we allow the Holy Spirit to be our conductor in all ways. With that said, I pray that you have a fantastic day as I leave you with this scripture:

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16: 15 &16
