I'm sure most of you that are reading this right now have had to deal with clutter. It seems that as we settle in to a place, we start collecting things and we keep on collecting things until it's either time for a move or a thorough deep cleaning. But what about the clutter in you? If you think that dealing with physical clutter keeps you from doing the things you want or need to do, dealing with the emotional and spiritual clutter can be even worse. Guest teacher Eric Carter takes us to a time when the Temple was in desperate need of decluttering and restoration and in this journey, we see whats needed to get our own temple in order for God to all that He wants to do through us. Are you having a hard time focusing on your purpose and passion, you may need to do some housecleaning!

Series: Rain
Duration: 40 mins 38 secs
Seeing is believing, right? I mean, if we're going to get right down to it, there's nothing better or more convincing than seeing something with our own eyes. Or is there? In a world driven by visual media, the idea of believing something before we see it (or as some call Faith!) is almost foreign. In today's message from our series "Rain", Pastor Chris Tomlinson shares an amazing story about a deluge of drought-ending rain that started with a little cloud, no bigger than a man's hand. Join us for a powerful lesson in faith, process, and purpose.

Series: Identity

There is a popular saying that goes something like this: You are what you think. Now this is not a new philosophy, Solomon admonished us in Proverbs 4:23 to "guard our heart", or literally, guard how we think. In our last installment of the series "Identity", Pastor Chris gives directs us through scripture to help us think the right things about ourselves so that we can truly live out our identity and purpose in Christ. We certainly hope that you have been blessed by this series. Let us know! Better yet, tell your friends about us!

Series: Identity
Duration: 37 mins 9 secs
If someone asked you to honestly describe yourself, what kind of words would you use? Would they be mostly positive or negative, or a little of both? Do you believe your description of yourself? In our third installment of the series "Identity", Pastor Chris takes us through one of the greatest encounters in The Bible; Moses and the burning bush. Moses discovered his truest identity and purpose in this radical encounter with God, but you have to know that the same holds true for you. Allow The Lord to speak to you through this message, you will be empowered and encouraged!

Series: Identity
Duration: 32 mins
Welcome to the podcast of Destiny Church of Jacksonville and the second installment our series "Identity"! Pastor Chris draws today's message from the story of Gideon, and if you know anything about Gideon, you understand what it means to have anyone other than God define you and determine your value. There is so much talk of identity going around in our society; whether it's being stolen, being hijacked for political gain, or being used in a way to keep us down and submissive to the will of others. Only God has the authority and the knowledge to define us! Trust Him with who you are!

Is there something that you feel like God Himself has planted in you, something that maybe is so big that you haven't seen it come to pass just yet? Well, today's message gets to the heart of those dreams, and with the story of Joseph as a backdrop, it's easy to see that sometimes destiny and the realization of dreams come as a result of serving others first.
