Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 44 The ministry of Intercession

Perhaps the most basic instinct in men is to pray. Even the person that does not confess to believing in God finds themselves praying in an hour of crisis. What is prayer? Why pray? How should we pray? In many ways, prayer is one of the greatest mysteries in the life of the Christian, while at the same time even a small child can pray. We are commanded to “pray without ceasing.” The disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. Let us be encouraged in this great labor that God has called us to.

• Prayer is communication with God
o In prayer we face God directly
o Acknowledges the sovereignty of God
• We pray because
o God commanded us to
o It is the way God has involved us in what He is doing
o We are concerned about the things of God (Matt. 6:10)
o We care about others
• How do we pray
o Should be inspired and directed by the Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:26,27)
o In the will of God
o In private (Matt. 6:6)
o With others (agreeing together,  Matt 18:19)
o Without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17, Col. 4:2)
o From the heart (John 15:7)
o In the name of Jesus (John 14:13)
• Prayer is a labor
• We learn to pray by praying
