WALKING IN THE FAVOR OF GOD

Jason gave this message to his good friends at Vanguard Church in Buffalo NY. Using the Parable of the Sower, Jason speaks on the power of seed (God’s love) to transform us.

INTIMACY IS THE STRATEGY

Our mandate as a church is discovered in Jesus’ words “on earth as it is in heaven” but the implementation is discovered when Jesus said, “I pray that you would be one just as We are one.” The strategy us intimacy.  Jason teaches on what it means to be a church by highlighting our God lens and access to intimacy.

This message was given to Newsong Church on our second week in our new building, April, 2017.

BECOMING SURE

Becoming Sure: The nature of our Father is our inheritance.

Jason speaks about the revelation of God our Father. To the extent we are sure in the perfection of our Fathers love is to the extent we live sure as sons and daughters. Our identity is secured in the revelation of our Fathers perfect love.

SOWING & REAPING

This message is an invitation to step into a breakthrough in our thinking which leads to breakthrough in our experience and finally, breakthrough for the generations. It's an invitation to keep sowing into the season of reaping.

MUSTARD SEED FAITH

“Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it (a demon) out?” He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:19-21

In this message, given to Newsong Church, Jason teaches that Jesus wasn’t talking about the size of our faith, He was talking about the purity of our faith. He wasn’t talking about the size of our actions, or words or knowledge, He was talking about the size of our connection. He was talking about intimacy.

HEARING GOD #whisper

Jason kicks off a Newsong Church message series based on Mark Batterson's book, Whisper. Jason teaches on the importance of our methodology of interpretation (our hermeneutic). Jason highlights how Jesus always heard God through the lens of family and while He lived as an obedient servant, it was always in the context of son-ship. I no longer call you servant, I call you friend. Friendship with God is the whole point of hearing Him. And when we are His friends, we represent Him truly. "We can't be His voice if we can't hear His voice."

This message was given to Newsong Church, Jan, 2018.

In this message, Jason noted song lyrics from his album, Heaven's Crush

"I've been Your Echo, I've been Your shadow, but my heart is to know You so I can be Your voice."

A FAMILY STORY #honor

Jason teaches on the subject of family to his home church on the second week in their new building. Honor is the language of family. Honor creates a culture where trust can grow. Trust is the birthplace of intimacy and is the expression of family. Jason also teaches on how to navigate offense through honor.

This message was given to Newsong Church on our second week in our new building, Dec, 2017.

FAITH & HUNGER

Jason teaches how our faith is a partnership with our redeemed imagination. It's the evidence of things unseen. Faith simply believes God is good and can be trusted. Faith isn't bootstrap "try harder" living, it's simply agreement with the nature of God - the sovereignty of His love. Faith gives us access to heavens perspective. Faith gives us access to heavens perspective.

This message was given to Newsong Church in 2015.

BELIEVE

Jason uses The Polar Express movie to reveal how faith and hope can be accessed through a greater revelation of our Father.  He teaches about how Jesus and the Holy Spirit are continually making a way for us to know our Father.

This message was given to Newsong Church in 2013.

This is an excerpt from a message in Dec of 2012 to Crossroads Church Concord.

MEASURELESS LOVE - part 2

Jesus received the "well done" or "well pleased" from His heavenly Father before He did any of the things He is famous for. Jesus lived from His Father pleasure, from His Fathers measureless love. And He purchased for us, this same revelation.  

Jason goes more in depth on this subject in his book, Prone To Love. For more information on the book CLICK HERE

This message was given to Christian Victory Church in Peterborough ONT CAN in the fall of 2015.

MEASURELESS LOVE - part 1

Jesus revealed our Father and what it looks like to live sure in His affection. Jesus lived, died and rose so we could have access to the same confident "on earth as it is in heaven" lifestyle. God is a good Father, He is well pleased with us and He desires us to live confident in His love. He has never desired desperate kids.

SHIFTING OUR LENS

In each test that God gives is available to us breakthrough for our thinking, for our future experiences and for the generations that follow us. This breakthrough is available to the extent that we, like Abraham with Issac, go into the test contending for resurrection life, contending for the goodness of God, the sovereignty of love.

Jason helps us reset our God lens regarding testing. Testing is an invitation to a greater revelation of sovereign love so that we can access intimacy.

GRACE & IDENTITY

Grace is unmerited favor. We can’t do anything to earn it and we can’t do anything to abuse it. Grace enables us to see ourselves from God's perspective and empowers us to live in agreement with how He sees us - as saints of the Highest One. This message was given to Newsong Church Sept of 2017.

ABOUNDING IN HOPE

This message was given to Newsong Church in 2016.  Jason talks about how Proverbs 13:2 "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life" is not meant to be a commentary on life. We can actually choose by faith to live in "longing fulfilled" regardless of our circumstances. We are intructed to live abounding in hope.

#HopeDeferred #LongingFulfilled

HE LOVES ME BEST

This message was given to River Church Charlotte 2010. Jason had just started writing Prone To Love, a book focused on the always good love of our heavenly Father. This message has been the foundation of every aspect of the life and ministry of A Family Story. 

#HeLovesMeBest #GodsFavorite 


What would happen if we actually lived out the relationship and reality we talked, preached, and sang about? Easy. We would change the world.

The roadblock preventing us from stepping into our identities as sons and daughters of God is not lack of discipline, resources, or creative ideas. We have all of this?…so what’s missing?

To discover who you are, first, you must know who the Father is and what He’s like. Prone to Love is your invitation and manual to discovering an always-good Father and His love for you.
