2.0 When Someone Asks About Spiritual Matters

“No one will ask after spiritual matters unless God is at work in his life.” Blackaby, 2.0 — Is God working around you and you just don’t know? Did you ask God to use you to minister to others, yet you’re not sure if an opportunity arises, if that is really God? The scripture is plain as day in John 6:44 — “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.” If that’s the case, then you should know, that God is already working in a person’s life when they come to you and ask about spiritual matters. When that person comes to you and ask about your faith, why you believe in God, why you go to church, what’s with “religion”. Know that this is an opportunity that God has created to use you in his Kingdom Work, to share the Good News with this person. Continue reading 2.0 When Someone Asks About Spiritual Matters

1.5 Accepting Gods Invitation

We need to make major adjustments to our life to join God in what he is doing. All too often we find ourselves very comfortable in our daily routine, even if that routine has nothing to do with God’s work. It’s a safe life to stay within the boundaries that we feel no one will reject us nor judge us. However, the Lord may have other plans and he may be calling you out of your comfort zone to get involved in his work. Will you obey? Continue reading 1.5 Accepting Gods Invitation

Cry Out to Jesus

Where are you today? Have you been crying out to the Lord and feel there is no response? Maybe that lack of hearing from the Lord, is the response. Maybe the answer to your prayer, is no and that’s why there’s silence. Maybe there’s sin in your life or the one that you’re praying for and repentance needs to occur. Whatever the situation is, the Lord says he hears us. He will answer, just remember you may not like the answer, doesn’t mean he didn’t hear you. Keep crying out to the Lord, for he cares for you.

Time, Gifts, and Talents

“Is it possible that God is calling each of us to do so much more with our lives? Is God calling us to really use the time, gifts and skills he has given us for something bigger than ourselves? Is God calling us to produce a great harvest of loving and serving and blessing others in our lives? So that when we arrive at heaven’s gate at the end of our lives we will hear verse 21 from God Himself – “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Continue reading Time, Gifts, and Talents

The End of the World

I believe that we all, at some time or another have wondered, “how much longer” will I be on this earth. For some it’s a thought when they are given the news of a deadly, sometimes incurable disease. For others the thought comes when they hit a certain age in life, or when a close family or friend dies, in which they want to die themselves due to the loss. I don’t really hear people talk about the actual time of when the earth would come to a complete END. It’s a scary thought, so we live our lives day by day and more people probably ask the question, “what happens to me after I die, than what happens when the world ends.”

Why Pray?

Prayer is as essential to knowing God and growing spiritually as breathing is to living and staying healthy. Just as you need to communicate effectively to be a good employee or spouse, our walk with God is only as strong as the communication between you and Him. Continue reading Why Pray?

Gods Instructions

In place of the Old Testament law, we are under the law of Christ ( Galatians 6:2), which is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). If we obey those two commands, we will be fulfilling all that Christ requires of us: “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:40). Now, this does not mean the Old Testament law is irrelevant today.
This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome” ( 1 John 5:3). The Ten Commandments were essentially a summary of the entire Old Testament law. Nine of the Ten Commandments are clearly repeated in the New Testament (all except the command to observe the Sabbath day). Continue reading Gods Instructions
