Please, come on in. We’re so happy you stopped by. Feel free to dive in and explore. You may have never actually walked through a whole website before, but it will be worth it. Walking with Jesus through this site will light a Fire. Here’s some insight into CatalystPeople and a few of the on-site features and resources:
Catalyst is the one-word job-title for the person who has accepted the Messiah’s invitation to be His extended, fully-functional Body-Part. Being a Catalyst means Jesus has ever-widening authority and expression in every aspect of our lives, as we eagerly comply with each newly clarified aspect of His nature. It also means that, though we would rarely be aware of it, there is an influence wherever we go. That influence is Jesus, Himself, whispering in the ears of the people around us and inviting them to walk and talk with Him. The goal is that they will see actions and words from us that confirm it is Him calling to them. Jesus is the People-Whisperer, we add the flesh & blood touch, audio and visual to an atmosphere of His own welcoming presence.
CatalystPeople.com provides essential elements of support to Catalysts, whether newly enlisted or seasoned veteran. God has created a new day for His specific purposes in us today, every day. Since God has sent His Catalysts to the exact place and time where each of us is today, this minute, and we are being transformed to fit into His eternal design, our job-one is looking into His face, surrendering our lives to His transformation by the renewing of our minds. By that determined interaction with Him, we are equipped for every moment and situation. He is able to cloth Himself in our skin and be in that place He has sent us to, and, in our surrendered body, physically interact with the people He planned to connect with on that day in that place.
A fundamental element in a Catalyst’s day is time set aside to hear God speak to us personally as we read His Living Book and to respond intimately and courageously to that to which He calls us. That intimate conversation with Him is the core of our life, our identity. What Jesus says is the place to start. Listening to His perspective and commands is vital to that conversation. Well, what ARE His commands, then? What DOES He say about – ____? Fill in the blank with the question needing an answer in your own heart right now. Jesus was not only the Creator of human beings, but He also became one of us, so that He could be the undisputed Authority on us being us, not just human beings in general, but specifically you and me. We are His premier creation, His image-bearer, His physical presence in the physical world.
If you have a Bible reading regimen, we invite you to “turn up the index,” as Oswald Chambers says. Turn up your personal engagement to make it an inevitable staple of every day. If you are not already on a schedule, please join us in the most important resource here at CatalystPeople.com, the Daily Hungry Bible Reader. It is designed, not as a commentary, but your own personal commentary generator, a strong starter-kit for us to develop our own interactive record of our conversations with Jesus as we turn that into action throughout the day, sacrificing our natural way, to live out His way. That process gives Him the prerogative to transform and integrate us into His way, His truth, His life so to be one with God and each other. The Bible we hold in our hand today is one Book, not many or even two. So we’ve developed this adventure that coordinates the reading of the Old Testament with multiple times through the New Testament every year. Daily Hungry Bible Reader is truly a full family meal at God’s Table. Learn more. Being in synch, reading and meditating in the Word as the family of God though we are spread out all over the planet, makes it possible to communicate with each other, digging into God’s living Book, discovering together and encouraging each other to press into Him and live His life out-loud in a world that desperately needs to know Him.
