The third most important thing a Christian should know after the message of salvation and the abundant life, is the power of prayer. It is critical to understand what prayer is and isn't, how & why, and when & where to pray, because it's what made Jesus, "Jesus"!

Jesus commanded us to make disciples, but discipleship can seem like a huge mountain that's too difficult for us to climb. The only way to tackle it is one step at a time. So let's 1) confirm our relationship with Jesus, 2) establish discipleship time, 3) pray for discipleship moments, and 4) prepare for discipleship milestones!

James is calling us to integrity. Anything less is evil. We need to be men & women of conviction, not convenience. The bottom line to our sin is not truly knowing the Father's character. Ultimately, God wants to be spiritually healed and made whole in Jesus.

"Worship His Majesty" - One of the two subthemes of chapter 5 is worship. Worship is a priority to God. It begins at the recognition of a completed action...the cross! True worship happens when we truly see the slain Lamb.

"The Preaching of Penitence" 

Jonah finally went to Nineveh and spoke out against it according to what the Lord commanded him. Consequently, the great city believed in God and repented, and the Lord withheld His judgement upon them. We have all been called to preach the Gospel to our "Nineveh's"! What is your "great city"?

"The Greatest Real Estate Deal in History"

John sees God sitting on His throne in heaven holding a scroll with seven seals (the title deed to the earth), which only Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah, the Root of David, the Lamb of God is worthy to open.

More of the scene in heaven is revealed to John. He sees the four living creatures and the 24 elders all worshiping the Lord. The scene is set for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. True love doesn't come unprepared. Are we ready and waiting for Jesus our bridegroom?

The Protesting Prophet...

God calls Jonah to preach revival to Ninevah, but he flees in the other direction and ends up in the belly of a great fish. Before we preach revival to others, we first need a revival in our own hearts. Are we going to trust God enough to be obedient, or are we only looking for the easy way out? The Lord loves us enough to break the "ship" that we are using to run from Him.

Daniel is told of the time of the Great Tribulation yet to come. Although he is troubled and doesn't understand all that was revealed to him, he is instructed to conceal the matter and not worry about it. Like Daniel, we musn't worry about the future and things we don't understand, but focus on the ministry that God has us in right now.

Daniel was given details of future events - the rise and fall of the Persian and Greek kings, which all came to pass exactly as predicted. God is the same yesterday, today & forever. He has proven Himself faithful & true through the prophecy given to Daniel as well as many others!

The Church of Laodicea - the only church that Jesus had no word of commendation for. He rebuked them for being "lukewarm" and not taking God seriously. They were self-righteous and deceived. But the reason Jesus was so hard on them was because the loved them and wanted them to open their hearts and repent. What are our priorities? Are we on fire?

Yahweh, the Great I AM. God wants to have an intimate relationship with us, but that intimacy is built on more than just a name. Over and over in the scripture, God defines Himself as many things and that He is everything we need. It's not what we know, it's who we know. Do you know the great I AM? Are you His child?

Sardis - The Church of the Living Dead

Sadly, the Lord had nothing good to say about His church in Sardis. It was a church with a good reputation, but was spiritually dead and in need of a resurrection. The Lord's command to the dead in Sardis was: 1) Wake up  2) Remember what they had received  3) Repent. Let's learn from Sardis and heed the Lord's warning in our own lives and churches!
