Can I know for sure I have eternal life? Audio

paper-1100254_1280

This is a great question, a common one, and yet one that can cause much confusion when answering. The confusion comes from a heart that is really having difficulty grasping the words of Christ when He said “It is finished” (John 19:30). In a world where the sentiment exists that there is no such thing as a free ride, it is indeed hard to grasp that the grace (favor) God gives each of us, to come and accept Christ as our Saviour is freely given, requiring nothing more from us.

which promises are for me?

love-castle-832120_1280-1By

Not many things are more comforting than a promise made and kept. And not many things are more hurtful than a promise broken. Knowing we worship a God who keeps his promises is a source of deep joy. But misapplied, this knowledge can also lead us to treasure-hunt Scripture for promises in problematic ways. How can we know which promises are for us? How can we lay claim to the promises of the Bible without overstepping their application? Here are some common pitfalls to keep in mind as you study…

Theology in Sound Bites – 2

cross-918459_1280

There is so much confusion in our Christian life, what it means to live it, what does it look like. If one studies it one will hear terms like Justification, Sanctification, Union With Christ, Eternal Security, God’s Will, Love, Grace, Law, Mercy and other terms. While in a blog of our size it is impossible, nor is it our intent to go free diving to depths unknown in these areas, it is our intent to introduce terms, statements, reflections and thoughts on what we see as theological truth.  

Martin Luther said the following and we would echo it…

Where the Water Flows

Several weeks ago, we had days full of heavy rain. After the system passed through and the sun came out again, I went on a much-needed walk outside. I was delighted to find that the rain had created creeks and lovely little waterfalls throughout the neighborhood. The water was still flowing, creating little melodies as it bubbled over stones and through tunnels beneath the roads on its way to lower ground. The sunbeams played with the water, sparkling and dancing over the surface…

The Tragedy Of Accomplishment

success-846055_1280By Chad Bird

It was March 10, 2008, when Cindy found the emails. She remembers because it was her birthday. She was turning 33. Her husband would be working late, again, but he’d promised to make it home in time to take her out to dinner at her favorite Thai restaurant. She’d tried on several outfits, but flung each aside until she finally found one that still halfway fit. Who had time for the gym with a two- and four-year-old demanding your attention every moment of every day? A stack of unpaid bills were piled beside the computer…

Imagery Of Heaven

Images Of Heaven

by Patrick Badstibner

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:4

In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? – John 14:2

And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb…

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.
