Friends and family feel threatened by my new faith – Audio

Inour

 

Friends and family feel threatened by my new faith – How do I reassure them I care just as much for them?

When someone comes to Christ, a desire is created within to do all things to honor (recognize that God is God and we are not; also show our gratitude for His goodness, generosity and grace) God, to offer oneself as an instrument to God’s greatness, generosity, and goodness and to worship God.

UNEXPECTED LOVE

heart-1668193_1280

By Chad West

God’s unmerited loved is the only motivation for real change. But it doesn’t guarantee change, and that scares us. So we hold on to the false safety of the lie that being good is the Good News. But, real love—grace-inspired love—that’s the stuff. It doesn’t follow any outlines or logic we’re familiar with. The gospel works against the way of the world that seems so natural to our sinful minds. We spend a lot of time trying to domesticate Jesus into some kind of weenie watchdog we can control, but sick on our enemies when need be.

A Free Drink for the Parched

By Sarah Taras

“Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” (Heb 10:23)

In a world full of bad news, the one place that we should be able to retreat and finally be washed over with a good word, is the church. There are some scattered pastors who are faithful to God’s two words, Law and Gospel, every Sunday. They don’t attempt to remove shame by removing the Law completely nor do they add shame to the hearer by preaching cheap law (i.e. moral reform via “application”).

SPEAK OVER YOURSELF

light

By Arlene Wallis

How often do you encourage yourself?

Do you seek self preservation?  Or do you stand stagnate and continually self loathe?

Do you gather your thoughts and present them at the altar? The power of life and death is in the tongue and it still marvels me how this one little muscle can cause complete havoc or enter in unspeakable joy! Your life is important so why would you discourage yourself?

A Morning Story

By Christie Lambert

Confession: I woke up cranky today. I was impatient with my kids, griping about what they had or hadn’t done and short-tempered with inanimate objects like a box of cookies that wouldn’t easily open while I was packing lunches. I was stomping around and sighing deep and bitter sighs over an accidental apple juice spill when the Holy Spirit tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me that it wasn’t my kids’ fault I stayed up too late and then overslept as a result of it.

A Call to Glorify and Enjoy God

cross-828894_1280

by Joseph Franks

LET US WORSHIP GOD BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS.

Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Selah          (Psalm 66:1-4)

The inspired minister of worship calls us to shout, sing, praise, and speak. Should not we follow his lead and obey? Friends, let us talk to ourselves. Let us talk to others.

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.
