Prayer really is the way you demonstrate faith in God’s Word and trust in His will. You truly cannot prioritize God’s will without praying.
Taking a deeper look at serving, reaching outward beyond ourselves. A true servant wants to please the master.
There’s something about church attendance that you can’t see, touch, taste, or smell that makes it the most powerful investment of your whole week.
Unity and love will naturally happen when we determine, that in God’s power, we will put others before ourselves.

Abiding in Christ means our thoughts, our ways are not the truth that guides us. It’s God’s way, God’s thoughts, God’s truth that guides us. When we hunger and thirst for the things of God, when we call on God consistently, when God’s values, ways, agenda, and plans are our desire, when we surrender, we will be abiding in Christ and we will live our call and our purpose.
We join brothers and sisters in congregations all throughout the United States, in every state there are Global Methodist Churches. We join brothers and sisters in Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, the Philippines, Spain, Bulgaria, Slovakia, and in parts of Africa.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.
