MHCC Youth Minister John Pryor speaks about how Jesus invites us into a state of rest
We owe a debt of gratitude to many people around us. The Christian thing to do is to pay that debt.
Let no debt remain outstanding except the continuing debt to love one another (so says Romans).
Sure, respect is earned in a sense, but there is a basic level of respect we owe each other by default.
Among the most valuable qualities a person can have is appropriate humility. We exercise that quality by practicing service as a spiritual exercise.
God’s Word is food for the soul, and we need to be on a healthy diet.
Prayer is not simply a desperation heave into the end zone as time expires. It’s about building a relationship and making us grow.
We rarely make progress in anything without goals. Why should spiritual growth be different?
The tougher things in this series – the fear of the Lord, the fact of hell, and the freedom of obedience – make sense only because God loves us.
