Discernment: Improving Your Spiritual Insight

Jesus isn't only interested in handing out "free tickets to heaven" even though many people view their relationship with Christ as just that.

The Difference Between Praying and Fellowship With God

People who are living breathe. People who are Christians pray. As soon as a child is born, he breathes the air around him, and as soon as a person is born again in Christ, he wants to pray. But prayer can be a struggle. Why do we struggle so much with prayer? It's because we lose sight of the most important reason we are praying. The purpose of prayer is fellowship with God. When you [...]

Have you ever spent one uninterrupted hour in prayer with God? No [...]

The Beatitudes: The 8 Types of Blessed People

Jesus delivered HIs longest sermon called "The Sermon on the Mount," and He began by identifying eight types of blessed people. Matthew 5:3-11 The Poor In Spirit: Empty of Self; Full of God The first in His list of blessed people are the poor in spirit.
