The Two Languages In Prayer

Psalm 109:1-4 – Be not silent, O God of my praise! For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues. They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer. THEME OF THE DAY: THE TWO LANGUAGES IN PRAYER. In…

Loved With An Everlasting Love

Christianity is a message of love; pure love. It is not like human love. In today’s scripture, the phrase “God is love” appears twice. It isn’t that God loves, but that God is love. Every expression and act of Him comes from His loving nature.

And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a…

The Evidence Of Being A Child Of God

1 John 3:14, 18 – We know that we have passed out of death into life because we love the brothers and sisters. Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. THEME OF THE DAY: THE EVIDENCE OF BEING A CHILD OF GOD. All Christians experience seasons of doubt of whether or not they…
