What We Believe About Repentance

jump-493889_640

 

Repentance means to change one’s mind. It is a change of mind about God, His ways, or living life in the light of God’s Word. This change of mind usually results in a change of direction, in the way we may be living.

By stating “usually,” we mean as it may appear in the eyes of others. Biblical repentance always results in a change of direction, attitude, choices or way of life. However, such changes may not always be readily apparent to others…

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” He replied, “You are talking like a foolish[b] woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?”  Job 2: 9-10

As human beings we know what it means when something good happens, something bad happens and definitely something ugly happens.  We teach our children that it is very unsportsmanlike to have an attitude when you do not win a game and that it shows good character when you can approach the winning team and show them your respect for a game well played.  Many of these teachings play well into our adult life and not just in the sports world…

Will God still, forgive me?

We hope you enjoy this excerpt from Walking in God’s Grace…

I have not been living right and have messed up really bad. Can God still, or will God still, forgive me?

None of us are living right! All of us must go to God moment by moment and confess our sins.

If we say that we have not sinned, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth isn’t in our hearts. 9 But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away. (1 John 1:8-9)

Happy 2016

By Latasha Ransome

The common cliché, “New year new mindset” has been my motto for years. I always recite it at the beginning of the New Year as it reminds of one of my favorite Scriptures. In the passage Romans 12:2, the writer, Paul states,

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

I believe that this passage perfectly demonstrates our need to stay in tune with God through His Word and His Holy Spirit in order for us determine His plan our lives…

“Happy girls are the prettiest” – Audrey Hepburn

I grew up with a dad who told me I was beautiful – a lot – thereby defying the conventional wisdom that daughters who are told this will define their worth by their appearance. I don’t. That’s probably because he also told me I was smart and capable and fun to be around. I somehow believed him about those things, but not about the beautiful part. Not even a little bit.

I would roll my eyes as he’d say it, reaching out to hug me, thinking to myself, “He just thinks that because he’s my dad.” My subscription to Seventeen Magazine reminded me faithfully every month that I was not, in fact, beautiful at all…

Hills To Die On

hills-to-die-on

By Steve Brown

Christians are divided over just about everything. Yet we should stand with our friends…regardless.

It’s an important truism: Convictions, by their very nature, cause division. The only people who fight are people who believe that there is something to fight about.

Therefore those of us who are convinced as conservative evangelicals, as Calvinists, as Arminians, as Dispensationalists, etc. must be very careful that the hills we die on are the same hills God would have us die on…

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.
