Paul the Apostle taught us that his calling was to glorify God and share the Good News of the Gospel, in spite of himself. Follow along with us as we see God’s role in our character development; being before doing.
When was the last time you responded well to the prompting of the Holy Spirit?
Would you die for your faith, if it came down to it? Would you be willing to stand up for your faith in God, no matter the cost? Sometimes Christian believers go through unimaginable trials, but God is with us and will never leave us.
Death on the front end of Acts 5, and new life at the closing. Which will you choose? Choose life, there is more blessing that way.
We learn through Acts 3 that God’s Spirit is on the move and He brings healing, wholeness and joy as a result.
If you have the Spirit of God living within you, if you’ve given your life to God in surrender to His will, then you’re in a fight, a fight for your very life. God has won the victory, but we struggle with battles in the spirit, daily. Battles we cannot see with our natural eyes, but battles that are real and difficult surround us.
Does God always answer prayers the way we pray them? Is God responsible to answer everything we pray about? Some say that God always answer prayers, sometimes with a yes, sometimes with a maybe and sometimes with a no. Could there be anything in your life that may be blocking your prayer life with God? Could it be that we may not like the answers that God gives us when we pray?
Too often we believe the lies from the devil that we’re not good enough, that we’re not strong enough, that we just can’t change the way we are. None of these lies are true, but we can be tricked into believing them to be true. Follow along with us as we look at 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 at how the Apostle Paul speaks to us about “weakness” rather than strength, which glorifies God.
You can work as hard as you want to make things right, but you have to have some fun together once in a while. Don’t neglect the joy in relationships. Don’t get too busy with the scheduling, the parenting, the managing of the home that you forget to make things fun together. Fun is not a luxury, it is a necessity in a healthy marriage.
Values rule our lives, like self-control, sacrifice and planning. We long to be people free from financial debt, so that, in our freedom, we have margin for more ministry time and service.
