prayer

I have been studying the ACTS devotional model that Bob Hartley and Bob Fraser have published and I wanted to post a couple of points that have been stirring me.

“If you fight the battle for a lifestyle of prayer, you will win victories in every other area of life.”

“We [Christians] have wrongly defined our mission — we are not called to be moralists — we are called to be epistles of Christ, presence carriers.  Otherwise, we are no different than Buddhists — good moral people with a philosophy.”

“If you are ever dissatisfied, it is because you have forgotten your true calling… to know God”. 

“We tell others Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship — but most have little relationship.  We tell others Jesus loves them — but most rarely experience his love ourselves.  We tell others Jesus brings internal peace — but most cannot find peace themselves.  This makes us prtenders if we try to give to others what we ourselves to do not possess…  We are fools if we think with an empty, barren spirit we will accomplish the work of God.  The world smells duty-fueled Christians and wants nothing to do with it.”
