ON THE WAY TO MY HIGH PLACE

another-young-bald-eagle_l

By Musa Mwajim

 

Genesis 1:26 KJV “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
  
Right from creation God made everything to reproduce after its kind, (Genesis 1:21-27). Even God made man in His image and after His likeness. So, if our heavenly Father is the most High God, we are not permitted to be the most lowly of creatures.
 
On mango trees are mango fruits. Inside mango fruits are mango seeds that have the potential to become mango trees. So if you are a child of the most high God, inside of you is the seed of greatness.

 
 
 

Trusting God vs. Using Our Brain

I’d like to start with a disclaimer: This post is  me thinking out loud and hoping you’ll speak into the conversation with some comments. I talk and write about this a lot, but my thoughts certainly need refining. This topic seems to come up a lot in my conversations with people; I’m often unsettled by the tendency in Christians when making decisions to leap over wisdom and knowledge, in favor of “trusting God.”

This (and the title of my post) imply that trusting God and using our brains are mutually exclusive, which they are not. But sometimes we treat them as if they are.

In Lieu of Excitement About Church

one-logo

by Matt B Redmond

 

I know there’s someone out there feeling just how I feel
I know they’re waiting up, I know they’re waiting to heal
And I’ve been holding my breath,
Are you holding your breath, for too many years to count?

Every now and then I’ll run into a piece of writing – a book or blog post, an article – that I feel I could have written if I’d had the words at hand. You know what I mean, everything else blurs for a moment and you breathe deep, “I am not alone.”

All these thoughts and hurts and fears and cares and joys and feelings causing our chest to heave in the quiet moments are not our’s alone. There is at least one other person who sees and feels these things. God has made another, not only in his image but in whom we can see even a shadow of a reflection of our own soul.

If you were arrested for being a Christian…

would there be enough evidence to convict you?

211111912_6670873f26

By Pastor Pedro Okoro

Somebody once asked, “If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to indict you?” In other words, are you totally, completely and unashamedly sold out and souled out for Jesus not minding the consequences?
 
Have you ever been persecuted for your faith? Persecution is harassment or maltreatment because of your faith as a child of God. In Hebrews 11:35–38, the Bible tells us about heroes of faith who were persecuted for their faith in the Lord. It says, “Others were tortured and refused to accept their freedom so they could be raised from the dead to a better life. Some were laughed at and beaten. Others were put in chains and thrown into prison. They were stoned to death, they were cut in half, and they were killed with swords. Some wore the skins of sheep and goats. They were poor, abused, and treated badly. The world was not good enough for them! They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and holes in the earth” (NCV).

You Are The Messenger 

listen-to-your-kids_l

  
A video representing the need to share the “Good News” of the Bible with our family, friends,
co-workers and anyone we meet anywhere we go.
It is a simplistic version of sharing the Gospel to the un-saved people around the globe.
It includes a sound track to motivate Christians
into sharing Jesus with people they know and people they don’t know.
 
 
 

Developing Cohesive Vision

5683346808_2ee10f7be9_z

By Barry Werner

Every group from a family unit to a Fortune 500 company will benefit by having a mutually understood, clearly communicated vision for all the group members. There will be times when not everyone will agree with the vision but if the vision has been clearly communicated and they clearly understand the vision they can function at a high level within the group.

Unmet expectations almost always lead to dissatisfaction and frustration. When individuals share a commonly understood vision that is clearly communicated the danger of unmet expectation diminishes greatly. When the vision is not commonly known and the communication is lacking at best and non-existent at worst the team will experience symptoms ranging from frustration to fragmentation all the way to total disintegration. Expectations will not be met and there is friction in the home or workplace.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
