Most of us enjoy eating. But there are times in a Christian’s life when eating should be avoided. Do you need to be reminded about Christ’s teaching on the benefits of fasting?

Many of us say grace together before eating a meal. Prayer is the vehicle that takes our thanks before God’s throne. Jesus also taught us to pray in secret, that we might one day be rewarded openly.

In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus showed us how to pray, and there is depth and breadth of meaning latent in these sacred words. These beautiful lines train us in the way we should approach God with our petitions.

Some Christians wonder if God listens when they pray. Jesus taught that the Father listens and even knows what we need before we ask. But then why should we pray at all?

In the race of life, success with God depends on time spent with Him in secret. This means setting aside time to the discipline of prayer. For many, prayer is something mysterious, especially private prayer, but it shouldn’t be.

God wants believers to give their money in secret, so only He knows who did what. Then we can’t flaunt our donations as badges of honor. We must give so as to please God first and foremost, not others and not ourselves.

The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. God wants to break money’s stranglehold on our hearts, and the key is giving in secret. Let’s pursue right motives and methods to do just that.

God wants our giving to be a secret we keep with Him. After all, God, not the IRS, keeps the ultimate books. Do we give discretely, valuing only the watchful eyes of God?
August 12, 2015
We can safely entrust our secrets with God. In fact, there are four secrets He wants us to share with Him. When we do, we’ll experience some life-changing results.
August 11, 2015
The return of Jesus to this earth will be a grand event! When He comes, He will exert His kingly rule over humanity. Even those who have loved and served Him will be raised from the dead to greet Him.
