Norm Wakefield – October 2017
The Transforming Power of Love
The Apostle Paul wrote that the goal of his instruction was love, and that ought to be the same for our instruction. You’ll learn the difference between the world’s kind of love and God’s kind of love as well as three powerful, relationship-transforming thoughts about loving others.
Nothing glorifies God more than when we love with His kind of love. In a self-centered world such as ours, nothing stands out more than someone who knows how to love from a pure heart. Healthy, God-glorifying, enduring relationships depend upon the flow of God’s love. But that’s not an easy thing to facilitate. Although we know we ought to love, we don’t come by it naturally.
The calling of God in Norm’s life has given him a heart for men and their families. His calling as a child of God has birthed an emphasis on the gospel and relationship with Jesus Christ. It forms the basis for wisdom in all aspects of life and is the strength of Elijah Ministries. As a husband, Norm longs to see marriages that glorify God. His calling as a father of four, has given him a heart for family. When God called Norm into the pastoral ministry, God led him to disciple and encourage men. Leading people into the presence of God has come from his calling as a worship leader. The desire of his heart is to see God glorified in His people as they apply God’s Word to their lives.
