Grapefruit // Great fruit

About once a month we take a day to fast and pray as a church. This is one practical way we live out one of our core-values and that is: “3. We bow before the battle.” On these very special days we get together in the evening, across the state, and pray and worship together. Nothing flashy or fancy, just an old-school Holy Ghost prayer meeting. It’s awesome.

The format changes, but I often have different campus pastors give devotional thoughts. Sometimes we take communion. I love these nights so much. No webcast or time crunch. They are some of the most extraordinary and powerful worship experiences. I often will share something about our vision or something the Lord puts on my heart right then in the moment. Last night we also heard something very special from a daughter of the house, my oldest daughter, Miss Alivia Sky Lusko. Check it out:

    Thank you SO much for posting this!!! After seeing on Instagram that Livie shared something, I was bummed more than usual that I am soooo far away from Freshlife church. I would love to be participating in bow before the battle, and I feel a little more connected when I can see the awesome things that come from those.

    Oh how wise and precious she is!! Thank you Pastor Levi for posting this! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again 100x, Thank You for setting an incredible example for us all. I would not be the Christ follower, the mom, the wife, the friend I am today without yours and Jennie’s leadership and example. Our Norah looks up to Alivia and Lenya so much!! Excellent job Alivia, we are so proud of you!!

    Hi Levi! My name is Katy von Kuhn, and I am currently living in Seattle, WA. I was living on the east coast for a couple years and attended Hillsong with Laura and Carl. In December of last year, Carl pointed me to your story when your sweet Lenya passed away. I have recently started listening to your sermons and am SO grateful for the words you speak! I pray for you and your family often (and “met” Jennie on her Instagram), and just wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing your life and story. Your sermons are powerful and so totally creative. Love Alivia’s faith. Bless you and your family today. I just want you to know that you are appreciated. #runningwithhorses is right, my friend.
