Activities and information that promote our growth as Christians and our relationship with Christ within the corporate body of the Church.

When You Just Have To Pray

First of all, the theme of the day is not about being in crisis and calling upon the Lord. Hopefully, we always resort to Him as our refuge and help in times of trouble. However, we are not looking at the urgency or even the desperation in situations prompting us to pray. This is about desire. Friends, this is a must discipline if we are to be changed into the image of Christ.

And He Loves Us Still

Imagine we set up a meeting to spend time together discussing life and things of the Lord. The day, time, and place are agreed upon. Soon, our appointment arrives.

He did not suggest our active and sacrificial participation in His church. He commanded and expects such participation from us. The pattern from the early church is still in place as the pattern for today’s church.
