Not Afraid to Pray

Not Afraid to Pray

July 15, 2019

Daniel was not afraid to pray even when it meant being throw into the lions den. Why don't we pray more? It is a lot deeper than saying we are lazy, we are afraid of what real prayer will mean in our lives. Yet we should not be afraid to pray we need to embrace it so we can glorify God prosper in this world that we live in. 

Walking in the furnace with Jesus

Walking in the furnace with Jesus

We live in a culture that is pluralistic. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego lived in a similar culture. They had a choice, to engage the culture or assimilate to it. Unfortunately many Christians chose to assimilate instead of engaging the culture with the gospel.

Mathew 10:30,31 Jesus said that if we confess him before men he will confess us before his father. What keeps us from being a witness for Jesus? When we love Jesus more than we love anything else we will become a better witness for him.

In John chapter 7 Jesus asks anyone who is thirsty to come and drink. Our real thirst is not physical but spiritual.

How do we know if God's Word is true? Jesus tells us that if we do his will we will know for sure that His Word is true. Often times we don't believe because we don't want to do what God says.

The family of Jesus did not believe in him as the Messiah. We often think that family drama is unique to our family, it is not. Jesus had to deal with drama in his family.

John 6:41-71 - Jesus made it clear that real belief means you will eat and drink of the son of man, the bread of life. Many of his disciples turned back because they said it was too hard. Peter said to Jesus, we are not going anywhere else, you have the words of life. 

GJ 023Do you see the bread or do you see Jesus?

GJ 023Do you see the bread or do you see Jesus?

Jesus fed over 10,000 people. The next day they came back looking for more bread but they missed the point of who Jesus was and that he is the true bread from heaven. Substitutes may satisfy us for a time, but they they can never replace the true bread, Jesus. 

Jochebed the mother of Moses

Jochebed the mother of Moses

We may think it is very difficult to raise our kids to love God in such a hostile culture, but when we consider the circumstances of Jochebed and how she was able to influence Moses even though he was taught in all the ways of Egypt, we realize we may not have it so tough. Jochebed was able to raise a prince in the midst of a hostile environment.

GJ 022 Get into the boat.

The disciples wanted to go to the palace, but Jesus wanted them to get into the boat, because it is in the storm that we learn who Jesus is.
