Linger in the Presence of God

Linger in the Presence of God

I’ve always thought abiding in Christ is the most important task of a Christian. Everything else just details. Jesus himself invites us to remain in him, to linger in the presence of God. What could that mean in real life? Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

How to Seek Guidance

How to Seek Guidance

Are you impatient to wait for God’s guidance? Sometimes it seems to take forever. But I’ve learned it does not pay off to go before God. So I wait. Even when I don’t feel like it.

Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4

Today our quest for what it means to “Live well, Live wisely, live humbly” (James 3:13, MSG) continues. We started our quest yesterday. Today we talk about how ‘living well’ can help us on our quest for God’s will. And, yes, you guessed it, tomorrow we tackle ‘live wisely’ and the day after tomorrow ‘live humbly’. In essence, following God, being a disciple of Jesus Christ and living in the Holy Spirit, is what leads us to find God’s will….

How Much Should We Pray?

How Much Should We Pray?

How much should we pray? Seriously. The Bible tells us “Pray without ceasing!”, “Devote yourselves to prayer!”,” Pray diligently!” and “Offer prayers and petitions in the Spirit all the time!” That’s a lot of prayer, don’t you think? How much should we pray? Leonard Ravenhill has said “To be much for God, we must be much with God. Jesus, that lone figure in the wilderness, knew strong crying, along with tears. Can one be moved with compassion and not know…
