The Highest Form of Religious Life is Attained by Prayer

The highest form of religious life is attained by prayer. The richest revelations of God–Father, Son, and Spirit–are made, not to the learned, the great or the “noble” of earth, but men of prayer. “For ye see your calling, brethren, that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called,” to whom God makes known the deep things of God, and reveals the higher things of His character, but to the lowly, inquiring, praying ones. And again must it be said, his is as true of preachers as of laymen. It is the spiritual man who prays, and to praying ones God makes His revelations through the Holy Spirit.

The Beauty in Suffering

The following poem, the Lord gave to me last year on May 28th.

The Apostle Paul teaches us that to know our Lord Jesus in the power of His resurrection, we must also fellowship in His suffering.

There are two recorded times in the New Testament when the answer was “no” to a request in prayer. The first is was our Lord Himself in the garden the night before His crucifixion. The other is the Apostle Paul’s request for the thorn to be removed. In both cases the cross was necessary for life. – Terry

Do Not Come Down from Your Cross

And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’”
Matthew 27:39‭-‬43 ESV

If You Obey the Voice of the Lord Your God

“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God.
Deuteronomy 28:1‭-‬2 ESV
