From Jim’s Heart—Developing a Passion for the Church

For many years I lived a lukewarm form of Christianity with little or no involvement in a local church. Call it drifting, call it distraction, call it laziness, call it enamorment with the things of the world, or even sin. Whatever you call it, my heart was not fixed on or consumed with the things of the Lord. Then, by God’s grace, I became aware of the crucial place being a part of a local church should have in my life.

My return to the church began when I met a dynamic Christian man while on the job. God used that one man to ignite within me a new passion for the Lord, for His Word, and for going to church. Then when I began attending church, some godly men began to mentor me and help me grow. The results were literally life-changing, for both me and my family.

Attending church can do that for you and your family, too. If you’re not actively involved, Christ is calling you to “not neglect meeting together” (Hebrews10:25). If you’re not sure whether you’re in the right church, determine to find the best church for you and your family. Determine to be faithful. Determine to be active. Determine to grow. Developing a passion for the church leads to manifold blessings!

Is There a Proper Place to Pray?

You can pray to God at any time, day or night. God never sleeps and is always available (Psalm 121:3). His ears are always open to the righteous, and He hears their prayers (1 Peter 3:12). But do you ever wonder, “Is there a correct or proper place to pray?”

True believers with clean hearts can approach God anywhere with their prayers. This was true in both Old Testament and New Testament times. For example,

  • King David prayed in a cave (Psalm 57).
  • The Israelites prayed in the wilderness (1 Kings 8:33-34, 47-49).
  • Elijah prayed in an upper room in a house (1 Kings 17:20).
  • Daniel prayed in his personal chamber (Daniel 2:19).
  • Sailors prayed in their boat (Jonah 1:13-14).
  • Peter prayed on a housetop (Acts 10:9).
  • Lydia and a group of women prayed by the riverside (Acts 16:13).
  • Paul and Silas prayed in stocks in a prison (Acts 16:25).
  • Paul and the disciples at Tyre prayed on the beach (Acts 21:5).

God’s people are to pray everywhere (1 Timothy 2:8). And that includes you! You can pray from any place, at any time.
