We all have limitations and deficiencies to present to the Lord for His attention. Jesus will answer us if we keep calling out to Him.
Our prayer is not a matter of keeping God informed of our needs, but of keeping ourselves aware of our dependence on God.
It's important for the Christian believer to reflect occasionally on the last judgment, and to be receptive at any moment to the coming of the kingdom.
The kingdom has not yet come to its fulfillment. It is still developing, and it still consists in the life and action of Jesus.
God never stops giving. He keeps on being generous and never takes back the gifts He has given us. Jesus expects us to be grateful.
The call of Jesus for his disciples to be servants includes everyone--from the lowest in society to royalty and the privileged.
Faith makes forgiveness possible. When we forgive we offer love to another in spite of the evil the other may have done to us.
Not only is the misuse of money destructive in our lives, but the non-use of financial resources for spiritual ends is also unsatisfactory.
God loves His people and wants to be close to us in all sorts of ways. That's why we honor our church buildings, and offer thanks for them.
It isn't our response to God that is important. What is important is the Lord's illogical eccentricity based simply on His love for us.
