How do I get more of the Holy Spirit? Audio

dove-184671_1280

We do not get the Holy Spirit as in something we should acquire, as some teach. For the Holy Spirit is not an essence or an entity. He is a person just like the rest of the Trinity. We are told in scripture that the Holy Spirit is indeed God.

In the Acts of the apostles, Peter tells Ananias that satan had filled his heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and that he had not lied to man, but to God…

The Hardest Thing To Believe

clock-1358429_1280

By Chad Bird

The hardest thing to believe is not that God has simply been there for all eternity, before clocks and pelicans and stars winking from galaxies away.

The hardest thing in theology to believe is not the existence of heaven and hell, or predestination, or how that tiny Jewish boy nursing at Mary’s breast is simultaneously feeding the ravens when they cry…

Theology in Sound Bites – 11

11-1

It’s our prayer that in these quotes others may know or be reminded of the wonderful mercy and love that is ours when walking in God’s Grace.

  • The law will always push our opinion of ourselves downward, as it reveals our stink and always makes us appreciative and thankful that it is about Christ, not us.
  • When we mix the law’s purposes, robbing them of their beauty, uniqueness and distinctiveness, the end result is always a softer, kinder, gentler, meeker, more flexible milk toast kind of law…

Faith equals Trust

I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help?  My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.  Psalm 121:1-2

I was asked by my 16 year old son to help him with a bit of homework. Usually when a parent hears that nowadays we envision fractions, negatives and pluses and calculus!  But I digress, this was not the case.  He wanted me to help him deal with learning the first amendment.

The Strongest Faith

by 

The weakest believer among us receives the same strong Christ as does the believer whose faith seems unmoved.

This is good news for all of us because it’s not the strength of our faith that gives us hope; it’s the strength of Jesus’s faith.

Let me explain:

One summer my family was invited to enjoy a day of waterskiing and lounging on the lake with some friends…

Inglorious Nobodies and Notorious Sinners

old-698485_1280

by Joseph Franks

In Jesus’ day, meals were public proclamations of kinship and association. Those interested in climbing certain social ladders and maintaining a proper public imaged were most careful with whom they ate and drank.

However, throughout the Gospels, Jesus was quite pleased to spend time with inglorious nobodies and notorious sinners. Hear the testimony of Mark:

And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him…

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.
