Consistent reading of scripture can have a very powerful impact. We pray that you can move from a feeling of obligation and becomes a time of great pleasure.
Being Jesus people means being bible people. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.
The apostles have a crown on their minds, but Jesus had a cross on His. Christ teaches us that service is true greatness. Serve out of gratitude for what He has done.
Prayer is a discipline. It takes practice, it takes all sorts of forms and it is way more powerful than you think.
