Prayer Index Cards

There is nothing more important in the life of a Christian or in the life of a church . But unfortunately a lot of time spent in prayer is not properly focused.

Family Revival

Recently I discovered in Psalm 101 a prayer that is directed at a nation that is in danger from corrupting influences of deserting the disciplines that have made our nation great. And I believe the family is our (and God’s) most sacred institution.

Transparency Among Men

Rick Warren writes “Many Church Fellowships and Small Groups remain superficial because they are afraid of conflict.”  But real Spiritual growth and maturity take deliberate efforts, thoughtfulness, and commitment to do the hard work sculpting a new person who is accountable to God and his church community to be a strong, loving, and effective Christian who attracts non-believers.

Charity can be equated to agape’ love.  This kind of love is aid and comfort given to someone without qualification.  Churches often fall short of this because as individuals they expect to receive appreciation.  But that would be qualifying the nature of the recipient. 

head of the body

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.

Here and Now

If the Holy Spirit is recognized in the church, then we are a part of His Kingdom. And the disciples lived to see this at Pentecost. God is intending us “to act” and not wait for the return of Jesus while neglecting to do His work in the here and now.
