Breaking Life’s Limits Through a Lifestyle of Prayer – Part I

(A Case Study of JABEZ) – I  Chronicles 4:9, 10. The story of Jabez is about what happens when ordinary Christians decide to reach for an extraordinary life-which, as it turns out, is exactly the kind God promises. Somebody once said there is really little difference between people-but that little difference makes a great deal of difference. Jabez doesn’t stand astride the Old Testament like Moses or a David or light…Keep Reading

Receiving Revelation – Ephesians 1:15-23

God provides two…Keep Reading

The Power of Thirsting – John 7:37-39

The Power of Thirsting – John 7:37-39

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink” (John 7:37) Why does God use the imagery of hunger so often in the Bible? Have you seen a person near starvation, desperately doing whatever is necessary to get food? Nothing can distract hungry people from this basic need. They’re bent on one thing only. This is the picture of a person spiritually hungry for God. But few are filled…Keep Reading

Victory Through The Cross – 1 Cor. 1:17-18; Col. 1:11-14; John 19:30

Victory Through The Cross – 1 Cor. 1:17-18; Col. 1:11-14; John 19:30

To the Jews of Jesus’ days, the cross was an ordinary wood where law breakers are nailed. But to God, it is his wisdom to effect eternal change in the history of humanity. That Christ died on the cross was the greatest achievement of the devil but at the same time his worst mistake. The cross contains the secret of the wisdom of God (Acts 2:23). The cross is a…Keep Reading
