At my church we have Communion each week. I’m one of five men in the rotation (occasionally a woman). And it never gets old. And you’re probably asking how that can be?
This is me – I spend an hour or more a day for things I’ve had in my hand and don’t remember where I laid them. There are stories after stories of self-created frustrations I could bore you with.
Jesus describes how the Comforter/Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus Himself are in constant communication with each other. But the real question is if we’re tuned in to this conversation. Often we’re like the car radio on a long trip and each station we tune in grows fainter as we distant ourselves from the radio tower.
all too often Christians do count the cost. The cost of their time, their priorities, their vulnerability, their emotional energy, is too great
A Missionary from Africa comes to the United States and shares with a concerned Christian how he feels the church in America is being deceived and in great danger. The Christian is very convicted by what he hears, makes a significant change in his life, and then sets forth a plan to reach his city with the gospel.
God has convicted me that I do too much finger-pointing in my posts. My posts are seldom about me and a lot about others.
Jesus was the master at looking below the surface of the issues presented to him. And He knew people’s real motives. While compromise seems like a solution, I think we need to follow Jesus and find the core of each issue, mine for the common ground of the issue with the point of view of others, and build up top a solution using Biblical principles.
Here it states the phrase “He (Jesus) is the head of the body, the church”. that is not considered very often in the church. It is true that church leaders will say this. Yet at the same time they put people in between God and the congregation.
Prayer is essential for the church and for Christians. It is our walk in Christ that is the highest priority. It guides the church and allows the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of Christians.
In 2020 it’s hard to find things to be thankful for. I remember in the great recession of 2008 that people fell out of the middle class and never found their way back. I know there’s a large percentage of our population that make just enough to survive; and now a great portion of them have lost their jobs and could soon be homeless.
