Joseph Prince (November-30-2022) Daily Devotional: Find Friends Who Can Carry You

Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. - Mark 2:3

Sometimes it is difficult for us to have faith when we are on our own. When you have no strength and no faith, you need others to pull you through. I want to share with you a precious testimony from Audrey, a leader in my church who experienced that for herself.

In the twenty-ninth week of her pregnancy, her water broke and she was admitted to the hospital for bed rest. Friends prayed with her and her husband, encouraged them, and believed with them for the birth of a healthy baby. She and her husband partook of the holy Communion as frequently as they were able to.

In the thirtieth week, baby Jenna was born, weighing 1.5 kg (3.3 lb), thankfully with no major complications. She was able to breathe on her own and all her organs were functioning properly. She gradually progressed from a tiny baby supported by tubes and needles to tube feeding and finally to normal feeding.

Audrey’s daily commute to the hospital was exhausting, but she was thankful for kingdom friends who kept them in prayer. Many of them partook of the holy Communion on their own as they prayed for Jenna and her parents. After forty days in the hospital, Jenna was finally allowed to go home.

However, Jenna was soon back in the hospital ICU as her heart rate suddenly became critically low and later became too high. Audrey was devastated and by this time was “out of prayer and out of faith.” But church leaders and friends kept surrounding them in an environment of faith and prayer even when they kept meeting with setbacks.

During that period, Audrey shared that I preached a fresh message about the Communion in church, and after she heard it, she and her husband persevered and kept partaking of the Communion for baby Jenna until finally she was out of danger. It was an arduous journey, but Jenna went home strong and healthy. Hallelujah! Audrey shared:

As I think of how Jesus healed the paralytic based on the faith of the four friends who lowered him through the roof, I thank God we also had these “four friends.” Our friends continually prayed for Jenna and encouraged us to press in to claim God’s healing and to partake of the holy Communion.

If you have been dealing with a long, drawn-out medical condition or you are exhausted from caring for a loved one, depression can creep in as the burden gets too heavy for you. My friend, bring your cares to God, knowing He cares about you with deepest affection, and watches over you so very carefully (1 Pet. 5:7 AMP).

At the same time, I want you to know God never meant for you to function in a vacuum. His heart is for you to be planted in a local church and not forsake “the assembling of ourselves together” but to exhort and encourage one another (Heb. 10:25). The church is not perfect by any means. But we have a perfect Savior who has done a perfect work on the cross, and there is safety, healing, and provision in the house of God.

Daily Devotional (January-21-2023) Friendship of the World

James 4:1-7 - “4. 1. From whence come wars and fighting among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2. Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, the spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6. But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” 

Why have we ask for so many things from God and yet fail to even receive an answer from God? The world has become in a way that almost everyone on it wants to fulfill his or her stupid desire. Nobody thinks of the will of God in his or her life but only thinks about the will of themselves. What do we see today, young people and all they want in their lives is money. Money is always their focus and nothing else. And they kill, steal, and cause troubles all be of their stupid desires. Why should God answer your prayer when you seek to destroy others? We have made ourselves worldly people by fornicate, steal, and kill around thinking it is normal. Beloved, why do we have to do all these ungodly things?

I am here to tell you that, you have being given a greater life than that of the life of this world. A life that Jesus Christ is your Lord. Greater than man can ever imagine and spirits will ever conquer. Today's word is saying that, the friendship of this world is enmity to God but the spirit of God gives grace and abundance of grace. Seek God and all your prayers will be answered in Jesus name.

No amount of ungodly things you do will ever prosper you like what the salvation of Jesus Christ has done in your life. Move away from the things of this world because it will only add you pain and sorrows. Do away with all your evil desires and make Jesus Christ your focus. Focusing and looking unto the throne of grace. From the throne is life and hope full of riches.

PRAYER: Father I am before your throne today in prayer and thanksgiving. According to the message of your grace, restored me, Heal me and Provide for me and grant me favor in thy sight. Separate me from this world and guide me on the perfect path. Amen

Mark Hankins (March-30-2020) Sermon: The Holy Spirit My Best Friend Part 1

Joyce Meyer (March-01-2022) Daily Devotional: Circle of Friends.

A confident person doesn’t fear being unloved, because they know and believe that they are loved unconditionally by God. Every single one of us needs and wants acceptance, both from God and others.

To be whole and complete, the first thing you have to know is this: you are deeply loved by God. Although not everyone will accept and love you, some will. I encourage you to concentrate on those who do love you and forget about those who don’t. God loves you more than you can imagine, and He can provide the right people in your life to love you as well.

I believe we need to have what I call “divine connections.” In other words, pray about your social circle. Don’t just decide what group you want to be part of and then try to get into it—follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in choosing your close friends. As you trust Him to direct your steps and connect you with others, He will open doors for godly relationships.

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for bringing the right friends into my life! Give me wisdom and discernment to know who to welcome into my inner circle, and help me build strong, healthy relationships with them. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

As the concept suggests, a preacher is one who practices the art of preaching. The word "preaching" is originally associated with the religious sphere of activity. Language researchers note that of all religious texts, this word - like the type of activity itself - is most closely associated with Christianity. Preachers teach Bible truths when speaking to believers or unbelievers. 

Most of the Bible's sermons are in the New Testament. The sermon, as we find it in the Book of Acts and the Epistles, is expressive, but at the same time brief. It is built on the fundamental truths of Christianity: the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Church, in whatever form it is delivered - be it an ardent call to repentance for sins and salvation or the gospel story of a relationship with God and people - is by nature Christocentric.

Christian online preaching isn’t just a statement of spiritual truths, but as a sacred act, during which the preacher, in cooperation with the Lord the Holy Spirit, accomplishes the work of salvation for unbelieving listeners and the process of spiritual growth for the saved. Words spoken by a person cannot strengthen faith, but the biblical sermon in the mouths of preachers has a special power that can transform a person's soul. It is on this supernatural power of preaching that the preacher's authority is established.

Despite the fact that the evangelical Church teaches about the priesthood of every born-again Christian, in the work of biblical preaching, special attention is paid to the character and moral character of the preacher. The moral right to proclaim eternal biblical truths, to preach the Gospel from the pulpit or in another setting on behalf of the Church, can not only be those who know these truths, but who have Christian virtues, a character that reflects Christ. We are talking about a person who sincerely loves God and the people to whom he addresses, deeply interested in the eternal and earthly well-being of his listeners. A person with the good name of a Christian, who has a "good testimony" confirmed by time and the Church. Since we are talking about eternal, enduring truths, the writing of which was inspired by the holy God, proclaim them on behalf of the Author, i.e. of God Himself, it is permissible for the one who knows Him personally, has constant communion with Him and obeys Him implicitly. From the point of view of the essence and basis of the message that he proclaims, the preacher is not the author of his message and therefore doesn’t have the right to change the truths being proclaimed. He represents the interests and fulfills the will of the One who authorized him for this with the authority of His glorious name, and, therefore, the preacher is obliged to accurately convey to his audience what was entrusted to him by God. Freely interpreting Scripture and presenting to the audience their own interpretation of eternal biblical truths, posing as God's revelation on behalf of God, is not only a distortion of the truth, but also an ethical violation that entails consequences. However, in the sermon, it is not forbidden to mention personal experience, as well as the experience of other people, examples from various areas of public life to the extent that these examples correspond to the truth and contribute to a more accurate and understandable message of it.  

Of course, in the modern world, taking into account the development of communications, a preacher is expected to possess the skills of oratory. This is not a strict requirement, but it is always encouraged, as it is an undeniable advantage and serves the greater benefit and success of the preaching work.

There are many preachers in modern Christianity who have achieved recognized success in the preaching work.
