My Heavenly Friend

My Heavenly Friend from http://www.georgemuller.org/devotional/my-heavenly-friend The precious Lord Jesus Christ is our friend.  Let us seek to realise this!  It is not merely a religious phrase or statement, but truly He is our friend.

Prayer

Prayer – why pray?

Prayer – Have you ever read Romans 8? I find it a fantastic encouragement. The opening verse gives us that sense of belonging and comfort as we are reminded that condemnation has been laid aside for those washed with Christ’s blood.

We see the terms hot, cold and lukewarm presented to a church that has clearly lost its way. The message…
