Is there a prayer brewing deep within your heart? Be careful. It will stir things up if you let it freely flow out.
When prayer is allowed to freely flow from the heart, as prompted by the Spirit, it’s one of the most amazing experiences on earth. However, analysis of God and His attributes, without awareness of and access to God’s actual presence, accomplishes little.
Many Christians are timid about experiencing Jesus as alive today, but He boldly rose from the dead, so we should boldly interact with the living Jesus. Christian spirituality isn’t about religious rules, rituals, or knowledge, but about following and obeying the living Jesus.
Many people think it’s foolish to be daily led by the Holy Spirit from within, but it’s an out-of-this-world lifestyle! Try it!
Christian complacency usually continues until it is disturbed and disrupted. If you have banished the personal God from your heart, life will be lonely–even in a crowd. Prayer that actually experiences God’s presence, is more than superficial or mechanical praying.
Jesus rose to reign — to be the King, the Lord, and the Master in human hearts. Let Him reign inside you. Religious hierarchy tends to dethrone the risen Jesus from His rightful place as the King & the Head of His body.
Good people have no need for God’s grace. The rest of us desperately need it. People have been taught to cover up and deny their pain with alcohol and other stimulants. (Denial seldom results in healing. Walking humbly and honestly in the light of truth, frequently does.) Perhaps it would be better to stop pain-producing behaviors and thoughts. Like the guidance system on a rocket, your thoughts direct your life. To improve your life, improve your thoughts. Align them with God’s will.
If many of its members are dormant and passive, the body of Christ can’t function properly. Let all Christ-followers obey the Holy Spirit who speaks within their heart..
