  • Living A Life Of Holiness

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Jun 15, 2016

    Has God really called you? Then where is that separation? Where is your heart? What is it captivated by? Is the presence of the Holy Spirit evident in your life? This is not something you can determine or speak for yourself. This the church will testify.

    Opening Illustration: A certain king needed a faithful servant and had to choose between two candidates for the office. He took both at fixed wages and told them to fill a basket with water from a nearby well, saying that he would come in the evening to inspect their work. After dumping one or more

    People want blessings. They want renewal. But they are not often so willing to obey and to praise God who gives it to them. That’s why, sometimes, meetings that tell you how to be renewed and be filled in the Holy Spirit are packed to the doors ...

    Opening illustration: I expect that if I were to ask you, ‘Why do you come to ‘The Well’ every week?’, many of you would answer, “I come to worship God and be fed with His Word … I want to hear the good news and grow in fellowship with other folks in the body of more

    We may share in his creative work through faith, or we may forget the power of his shaping hands and look to our own ingenuity, our own capacity to market and manage our Christian fellowship. The security of God's people lies only in the Potter's Hand.

    Opening illustration: I read a story of a woman on vacation that was shopping in the finest stores. One day she saw the most beautiful cup she had ever seen. She went in bought the cup and every day she would take the cup out and admire it. She would even talk to the cup and say, more

    Do we continue in a lifestyle if sin? Is our life filled with any form of violence? Do we yearn and live our life based on corrupted wisdom? What sort of worship we bring before God? Is pride evident in our lives?

    Opening Illustration: Narrative of Krupy who used to be our worship leader in the Middle East. As soon as pride and corrupted wisdom entered his heart, God eliminated him from ministry and his calling was stunted. Introduction: The devil was at one time a righteous angel!

    based on 1 rating

    Now with the media tracking you and keeping you accountable, the way you live out your life daily will send a message to others who you really are and what is your calling. This should not stop you to live out God’s call.

    If you don’t consistently spend time alone with God in His Word and in prayer, you don’t have a walk with God! If you don’t have a walk with God, you will not be able to stand alone as Noah did. You will be more conformed to this evil world than you ...

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Mar 11, 2016
    based on 2 ratings

    Overcoming our fears is not about us … it’s all about Him. It’s all about whether you will allow God to be more than enough for you! If you will, then you can cast your fears behind you and in freedom become all that God desires you to be!

    How do we overcome the fear that is holding us back? Let’s face it, fear impacts us all. We all have things that create fear within us. But, when these fears hold us back and keep us from becoming the people God would have us be, it’s time to throw them off. Key Verse: Hebrews 12:1 more

    Opening Illustration: The struggle I had with my personal calling - • I knew I had a call upon my life since childhood but was running from it because I saw that there was nothing lucrative in it for me or my family … it meant the cross and suffering … I wasn’t more

    How do you respond to Christ the King Who is the fulfillment of the ages? Like Herod, and all Jerusalem with him, do you hate Him and fear Him? Or, like the shepherds and magi’s, do you bow down before Him and worship Him?

    Opening illustration: A young boy desperately wanted a bicycle for Christmas, so he asked his parents for the bike; His parents wanted to teach him the importance of prayer, so they suggested the young boy should write a letter to Jesus and pray for one instead."

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Mar 11, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    All glory for our change goes to God. He provided us with salvation. We do not need to do good works to merit salvation, but we should do good works because we have received salvation. This is God’s plan for every believer.

That question became international news when a man from Ohio showed up in good health after being reported missing more than 25 years earlier.

    Are we at that place where we know our calling explicitly? Have we positioned ourselves for God’s plan to play out? God’s favor will bring upon you trials and test your faith and endurance. Are you ready?
