John 15 - I Just Want To Live. John 16 - Praying and the Holy Spirit

John 15

Recently someone walked into my office and said, "I just want to feel alive, I want to live!!" The comment took me off guard because as far as I could tell they were breathing. I knew that they were saying something to the effect, "I want some more adventure in my life, I want to experience more things." But the phrase still struck me odd.

The face of the matter is this. People who don't think that they are alive are not connected to the Lifegiver. The one who makes life an adventure. (Read Mark Batterson book - Wild Goose Chase) If there is anything that I know, it is this. If you want to feel alive, ask Jesus into your life in a new and fresh way. You will feel like you got a hold of a live wire! Living is something that Jesus knows how to do and do it well. Don't let your life become boring or stale. Let Him refresh you today!

My Prayer Today - Dear Jesus, where my life has gone stale, please refresh. Where my life is dull, sharped it. Where my life is mundane, ignite it. I do not want to regret my days on this earth, but I want to enjoy and love every moment of it all the time. In Jesus name I pray - Amen.

John 16

The Holy Spirit in our prayer life is an aspect of our Pentecostal Christianity that concerns me as a whole. Now I know that there are Christians out there who pray in tongues. Thank you and God bless you! I know that sometimes it doesn't seem that you are doing any good, but believe me you are. Keep praying and keep making a difference. Maybe you use to pray in tongues, but you got out of the practice of doing it. Do it again! I cannot tell you how important it is to do this. Romans tells us that they Holy Spirit will pray through us! Wow! If the Holy Spirit knows what to pray, and how to pray, then you know that whatever we are praying about, our faith is makeing a difference!! Then there are those who have yet to pray in the Spirit. Please seek this gift from God! You may have questions, are questions are good! You may have doubts and as long as you are willing to give God a fair chance, this can be a good thing too. What I am telling you excites my soul, it energizes my life, it gives me purpose and I love doing this now more than ever - what is it you ask? I am praying for you and I am praying in tongues! God Bless you and have a great day!!
