Most of all, you begin to think and pray God’s thoughts. In this message, you learn lessons on praying biblically.

When you mention “meditation” to some people, they envision an eastern mystic or a guru. But meditation in the Scriptures is entirely different, and it’s crucial for you to let the Word of God reprogram your mind in a godly, healthy direction. You might ask, “How do you meditate?” All that you need to do is to simply ask the text some questions that help you analyze and personalize the truth. In this message, you’ll utilize practical questions to ask of a text to help you internalize the Word of God.

Meditation sometimes brings mysticism to mind. Biblically, however, meditation is not merely a calming exercise. It forms you to follow the path that God has for you. Psalm 1 speaks about two men, two paths, and two very different destinies. “Blessed is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Meditation is how the Bible can renew our minds and cause us to live joyful, productive lives. In this message, you’ll receive steps towards the path of blessing.

Does going to church on Sunday morning feel rushed? How do you practically prepare before, during, and after the service? When you come to hear the Word of God, you are listening for your name. You are coming and you are saying, “Oh God, what do You have to say to me today?” If you come to it with pride or to merely listen, then you’ll go away without any transformation. In this message, you’ll take home more from church than you ever thought possible.

Have you listened to a sermon or read Scripture without your soul being stirred? When your heart doesn’t respond, how can you prevent self-deception?

The book of James admonishes us to “receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” In this message, you’ll learn how to do just that.

“Is God’s Word sufficient when I feel powerless or hopeless?” You might be facing difficulties that sap your joy. Only by focusing on the Word of God can you have lasting joy that the world can’t take away. In this message, you’ll realize the indispensable value of the Word. That’s why the Psalmist extolled the attributes of the Word of God: “The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.”

Do you ever wonder if there’s enough evidence to believe in God? In this message, you’ll think through the honest questions skeptics have about God’s Word.

Why haven’t you started reading the Bible? It could be that you have different beliefs, you’ve lapsed in the faith, or you’re a Christian struggling to see the relevance of the Bible. Despite its widespread influence, very few people read the Bible every day. In this message, you’ll encounter the reasons why people don’t open their Bibles as well as why it’s origin and purpose speak to you today. This book is far more than a collection of writings. It’s the revealed Word of God that transforms your life.

Faith sometimes changes your circumstances. Sometimes it doesn’t. Is it ok to have doubts and be disappointed with the answer? Faith always leads to ultimate victory, but it may not change your immediate struggles. By going through the “hall of faith” in Hebrews 11, you’ll resonate with these heroes, who sometimes saw miracles but also suffered and died without God’s immediate intervention. Even so, these heroes realized that they would ultimately and victoriously receive the fulfillment of God’s promises.
