The Gracious Gift of Prayer

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” :: Colossians 4:2 What value do you place on prayer? Do you regard it as a wonderful gift of grace from God, or as an unbearable burden? The privilege of prayer is a special gift from God to us. It is God’s personal invitation to you to enter into His sanctuary, to talk to Him and listen when he has something to say to you. Prayer is a discipline that requires preparation and practice. Make time to come quietly into the presence of God. Focus your attention on Jesus. Listen and speak...

God’s boundless grace

“That they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3 Many Christians are ignorant of God’s boundless grace. Their need blinds them to the One who could supply their needs if they would trust Him. Time and again Scripture reiterates that God is more willing to give than we are to receive. We are constantly reminded that if we pray and believe, we will receive that which we pray for. Prayer is the key that...

‘To whom do you belong, and where are you going? Whose are these in front of you?’ – Genesis 32:17 (NKJV) Life must have purpose and significance if you are to live meaningfully.

When the thoughts of Christ fill you and the Holy Spirit’s...

THANKSGIVING ALL TOGETHER AND FOREVER

“You will be delivered up even by your parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and some of you will be put to death.” –Luke 21:16 Many of you in the USA will be spending Thanksgiving with your families and relatives. As you visit with the family, pray that none of them will betray you and turn you over to the police to be executed for your faith in Jesus. Pray also that you yourself will not turn them in to the authorities when persecution rages against the disciples of Jesus. If we and our families are committed 100% to the Lord,...
