Secret Religion – Prayer

This week the focus is on Prayer. Again, Jesus warns His disciples not to make prayer a time of spiritual show. Instead, they should pray in secret to their Heavenly Father. In turn, He will not only approve our prayers but also blesses us before all.

Can You Handle the Truth About Jesus?

In our series on the life of Christ we come to the passage where Jesus goes to His hometown of Nazareth. At first everything was alright and the locals even admired Him for how He spoke. Then Jesus appropriated the passage from Isaiah 61 to Himself about the Spirit of the Lord being upon Him. At that moment they were angry and began to push Him off the cliff. Jesus rebuked them for rejecting Him. Isn't this true of us? We like the truth as long as it is comfortable and does not demand obedience. But the moment we are confronted with a truth that demands transformation, we find ways to avoid or even deny it.
