Luke 18:15 The touch of Jesus has power over the enemies of the human family. These people knew if Jesus ever put His hand upon their children, they would be all right. Everything Jesus ever touched was changed. His touch has power over:1) Devils2) Disease3) Death I. HIS TOUCH IS A LIFE-GIVING TOUCH1) Jairus’ daughter […]

from Don't Just Stand There, Pray Something
by Ron Dunn

Every petition is formed within the context of three provisions: the will of God, the name of Jesus, and the glory of God. (p. 54)

As believers we are the objects of organized assaults by unseen forces, a hierarchy of invisible powers in rebellion against God. (p. 63)

In a sense the primary target in intercession is not the person or the problem; rather, it is the power behind it. We must break the habit of taking the visible part for the whole. (p. 64)

Prayer is the warfare. It is the battlefield upon which the spiritual war is waged. The battle is won or lost here. (p. 68)

The church could win more battles in the valley if it had more intercessors on the mountain lifting high the rod of God, the name of Jesus. (p. 69)

The Way We Give Now

In its most recent State of Giving report, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) noted that its members received more than $9.8 billion in cash donations in 2011. That giving has held fairly steady in recent years, especially compared to other reports of charitable giving. But there’s a lot of volatility among individual ministries […]

Have We No Tears for Revival?

Written by: Leonard Ravenhill “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy” (Ps. 126:5). This is the divine edict. This is more than preaching with zeal. This is more than scholarly exposition. This is more than delivering sermons of exegetical exactitude and homiletic perfection. Such a man, whether preacher or pew dweller, is appalled […]

Evaluating Your Ministry

Written by: Bill Elliff Our one great, compelling command from our King is to “make disciples, baptizing them and teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). There are no options here. If our ministry is not leading people to Jesus and growing them into obedient, multiplying followers—in whatever measure and […]

Preaching: A Point of Reference (Part 1)

On what basis do you preach? Why preach at all? What’s the goal? The purpose? I know, we’ve all got our stock seminary answers, but when it’s just you – alone with your Heavenly Father – why do you preach? When we one day stand before God and He judges our works, what will our […]

Still More Sacrifices

Read Hebrew 13:15-16; Philippians 4:14-18 God looks for the sacrifices of praise. How easy it is for us to complain! How difficult it is to praise the Lord and think Him for His mercies! “O that men would praise the Lord for His goodness!” exclaimed the psalmist. Continual praise means a continual walk with the […]
