What is Grace?

horse-430441_1280

God has many qualities and gifts, but of all His qualities none express His character or does He have a better gift than
His grace.

All grace originates with God. Grace can be classified into two main categories. These categories are often classified as
common grace and special or what we might refer to as transforming, saving grace. Common grace is that which everyone
experiences whether they believe in it or not…

 What We Believe – Prosperity Gospel

chandelier-203512_640

Does the Bible promise us prosperity? Does is it say if we live a righteous life then we will be prosperous? Some would even teach that sickness is evil and, as a result, sickness is from the Devil, and we in fact sin when we say God is responsible for sickness. Are those teachings right?

Often, people use certain passages to say such things as “we are not to be sick” or “while living here we should always prosper.” Do such statements contradict or conflict with other verses in the Bible?

What will we do?

By Mike Messerli

Panic.

You’ve felt it, haven’t you?

That sudden sense that everything is out of control…

…that the world and the problems you face are overwhelming, too big, too much!

You may have actually said it at one time, “What will I do?!”

Suspicious of Grace

frost-70166_640 By Wendy Alsup

 
We are by nature suspicious of grace. My pastor used this phrase in a recent sermon and it stuck with me. I have a long history in the church and have experienced my share of conflict. Though I can’t remember a time where I was actually in the middle of the conflict, I’ve observed much conflict from the sidelines. And I’m becoming increasingly convinced that it is our suspicion of and lack of endurance with grace that is the turning point in each conflict. When we loose hope in grace, conflicts become unreconcilable and deeply wounding…

Kick the enemy’s tail!

God-gives-victoryBy Lisa Buffaloe

The enemy has been messing with me, with so many of my friends, and probably with you. Let’s kick the enemy’s tail! Let’s take back the ground the enemy has gained.

The Israelites were given the Promised Land but they had to conquer their enemies. God helped the Israelites, but they had to take action.

We are given Christ’s freedom, but it’s up to us to live in His freedom. God fights for us, but there are times we are to join in the fight.

Christ Covets You

window-200525_640By Patrick Badstibner

If we believe in a theology of glory doctrine then we might believe that the Bible is about us. We might pull passages out of context and go, “OH, there goes my direction for the day, I will do likewise and go hang myself like Judas.” That is a bit extreme, but the reality is, believing in the theology of glory, at some point we are to miss the point so much that we are sure to hang ourselves spiritually or at least rob ourselves of both the joy and life that Christ covets us to have.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all of those who have been brought near to God are on is not one that is about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but rather 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 and that is 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 and re-connecting them, one soul at a time to local bodies of believers.

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