As Christians we are to be the light that dispels darkness in our world. Sin cannot continue in the Christian’s experience, for light cannot dwell with darkness.
Spiritual preparation equips you for unforeseen crises or opportunities. If you are spiritually prepared when a crisis comes, you will not have to try to develop instantly the quality of relationship with Christ that can sustain you.
God will use your prayer times to soften your heart and change your focus. As you pray for others, the Holy Spirit will work in your heart so that you have the same compassion for them that God does
If you will accept God’s love, however, you will be able to return love to God as well as to others. Being assured of God’s love for you sets you free to enjoy the numerous expressions of love He showers upon you each day.
Only God can purify your heart. Allow Him to remove any impurities that hinder your relationship with Him, and then your service to Him will have meaning as you offer Him your consecrated life. You will know when you have encountered God because your life will no longer be the same.
Prayer is designed to adjust you to God’s will, not to adjust God to your will. Prayer aligns your life with God so that He chooses to demonstrate His power through you.
