Sermons on Practice
Is your mindset important for your spiritual life? The word “mindset” doesn’t appear in Scripture, but it does appear flipped around as the phrase “set your mind,” and is very important, according to Pastor Donnie Johnson in part 2 of his teaching series, “Love God with All Your Mind.” For example, the way that you think about God, yourself and the world affects your prayer life greatly, and other essential elements of the Christian life.
Part of living in God’s presence is talking to God. In John 17, Jesus gives us insight into the relationship that He has with the father and shows us how we can talk to God through PRAYER.
How do we live life in God’s presence? We need to know that God speaks, and we need God’s Word more than food. God’s Word is precious. Actively put yourself in Jesus’ path by reading His Holy Word.
If we are thinking of serving others by trying harder, there we are missing something. Serving needs to be part of a spiritual discipline. Practice serving through your gifts and in serving sacrificially.
