Duty of Christians

"It is the duty of Christians to create the kingdom of God on Earth. This kingdom will exist only when we all have enough to eat, when our children, brothers, parents don’t have to die from hunger and malnutrition. That will be the “Glory,” a Kingdom for we who have never known it." ~ Rigoberta Menchu

Christian Parents

"What does it mean to be Christian parents, whether we are ministers or dedicated laypeople? It means loving our wives or husbands the way Christ loved the church. It means intentionally loving and investing our lives in our children and grandchildren." ~ Porter

A Prayer...

“Dear Father; please stir our hearts to reach out for all that you have promised us.  Forgive our carnality, our indifference to the spiritual realities around us, and our dependence on human resources rather than your power.  Teach us to pray and wait upon you in humility and faith; send the wind and fire of your Spirit upon us.  Transform us into men and women who bear powerful witness in word and deed to the reality of Jesus Christ our Savior.  We ask all of this in his precious name.  Amen.” ~ Jim Cymbala  (Fresh Power)

SIX QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR PRAYER LIVES

  1. Is prayer changing me?
  2. Is prayer making any difference in my life?
  3. Is my prayer life bringing me closer to the Lord?
  4. Am I moving toward giving control of my life to God?
  5. Do I constantly try to tune into God's presence?
  6. Are any my prayers helping me develop a more loving relationship with others?
     If you answered no to any of these questions, then one more question comes to mind: WHY NOT?
