Our Practice as a Pray-er

5/10/2020 Jeff Schwarzentraub Philippians 1:1-11

Spending time in the presence of God changes us. When we go to God in prayer, we become humble because we realize we are nothing more than willing slaves for His glory. Yet, at the same time, we are saints of God through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Spending time in God’s presence also makes us grateful for the opportunity to participate in Christ’s mission of the Gospel. There is no greater joy than knowing that God is using your life to impact the world for Christ. Through this mission, we gain deep friendships and a love for God that is deep and special, unlike any other, and we also gain a strong desire to see God’s people mature and grow. As the Apostle Paul writes under the influence of the Holy Spirit, we should grow in our hunger to spend time alone with Jesus.
