Commit to pray today and every day

Prayer is one of the most essential elements of a Christian's life. To think that we can speak with the God of creation is a mind-boggling thought. But it is the truth. God has invited us to speak to him regularly. Paul wrote, "Pray without ceasing." And so we know that prayer is essential.

Following God takes life changes

If you truly desire to be close to God, you have to make some changes in your life. If you are like most people, you have been caught up with the "what's in it for me" mentality.

"He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told." - Matthew 28:6-7 - New King James Version

Commit every moment to Him

While every day is significant, the last few days have been amazingly powerful for me as I remembered the significance of living a committed life - one dedicated to God.

Some things we need in our lives

There are many things needed in our lives in order to live. We need food and water, shelter and such. Most people spend the biggest part of their lives trying to provide these things for themselves and their families.

Celebrate that Jesus is alive

Easter is later this year than usual. It is very rare for Easter to come on the last Sunday of April. We have to wait much longer than we usually do. But we wait with great anticipation. We know, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story."

Jesus will help fulfill destiny

When we think of why Jesus Christ came to earth more than 2,000 years ago, we might think of how he taught, healed or preached the good news of salvation. We might even think of how he lived a perfect life of example. All of these are important, but they are not the main reason he came.
