God's truth for today's world

Today, we begin a new message series called Jesus Your Everything. We’re going to be talking about the most controversial and influential person who has ever lived, Jesus Christ. Even today in America, the name Jesus stirs up strong reactions with people. Many people simply speak of God. The problem with this is that God means many different things to different people. To the Muslim, God is Allah. To the Hindu, God is Brahman. To the Mormon, there are many gods and you may become one some day. The gods described by different religions are not the same god with different names, they are very different types of beings.

Today, my message is entitled “Share Your Faith with Prayer.” We’re going to be talking about how prayer can be an incredibly powerful means to share your faith with others. Not only is prayer an effective tool to share your faith, it is something that every believer can use. I am very excited about the Word that God has given me to share with you this morning. I believe that if we can understand, commit to and put into action what God wants to teach us this morning, it will radically change each of our lives and our church as well.

This is the final message in our series “Teach Us To Pray.” We certainly haven’t exhausted everything the Bible has to say about prayer, but we’ve covered some very important topics. Personally, God has taught me some important lessons as I have studied what Jesus taught on prayer. You may have a read a passage before, but God can open your mind up to it in a new way, in a way that brings change to your life. That’s what God has done for me as we’ve gone through this series. He’s given me a new faith in the power of prayer. He’s also given me some new ideas to keep my prayer life more organized and consistent. And He’s reminded me of the importance of humbling oneself through fasting when praying. My prayer is that for each one of you, God has spoken something that has directly impacted the effectiveness of your prayer life.

Prayer is the most fundamental behavior of a believer. Our faith is expressed in prayer, communication with God. We’re learning about prayer in our current message series, “Teach Us To Pray.” I am excited about what God is teaching me about prayer as I study this important topic. I believe that we haven’t really begun to tap the potential of prayer to impact the world around us for God.

Currently, we’re in a message series called “Teach Us To Pray.” In order for learning to occur, there must be a teacher and a learner. If you’ve got the best teacher in the world, but an unengaged student, then no learning will occur. If you’ve got an engaged student, but a poor teacher, learning will be minimal. In this message series, we’re looking at the teaching of Jesus on prayer. So, we’ve got the very best teacher in the world. You couldn’t find a better teacher than Jesus. Jesus was God, so He knows better than any of us will ever know, exactly how to effectively communicate with God through prayer.
