As a boy, I had a group of friends that roamed our neighborhood streets. We loved to “dare” each other to climb a tree, roll down a hill, or to cross the street blindfolded. Daring them to do something exciting was fun.
As a Christian, life circumstances dare us to trust God. Sickness dares us to believe God for Healing. Financial setbacks dare us to stay true to God even when circumstances disappoint. The death of a loved one dares us to receive comfort from God. Faith dares us to rely on God for His help.
Jesus said in Matthew 21:22, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Isn’t that an amazing promise? Certainly, we must ask in wisdom and seek the Mind of God as we pray. James 1 provides excellent guidelines for successful prayer.
The New Testament is full of stories about people who dared to trust Christ for their needs. Please let these three brief stories challenge you today.
In Matthew 8, a Roman Centurion comes to Jesus and asks Him to heal his servant. When Jesus says that He will go to his house, the Centurion says the He does not have to do that. Because the Centurion understood how delegated authority works, Jesus could just speak the Word and the healing would occur. He believed that there was no distance in prayer. Jesus was amazed at the daring faith of the Centurion and called it “great faith.”
In Mark 10, Jesus was on the Jericho Road. Sitting along the way was a well-known blind beggar named Bartimaeus. As Jesus came near, Bartimaeus began screaming “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.” The crowd tried to hush Bartimaeus, but no one was going to interfere in this rare opportunity to be healed. Jesus noticed his tenacity and asked the beggar what he wanted. He said “I want to see!” Jesus commended him for his daring faith and healed Bartimaeus.
In Mark 5, Jesus was surrounded by a huge crowd of needy people. No one noticed that a woman with a grave illness for 12 years risked being trampled to death, just hoping to be healed. With great weakness, she pushed to within an arms’ length of Jesus and touched the hem of his garment. Immediately, she was totally healed. Jesus stopped, and commended her for her daring faith.
These three people exerted daring faith in Christ. They risked the ridicule of others in order to have an answer to their desperate prayer. How about you? Will you trust God in your situation? In Matthew 9:29, Jesus said (and you need to mark these powerful words) “According to your faith, it will be done to you.”
Will you trust God with your need? I dare you!
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
by whom you were sealed for the
day of redemption
Ephesians 4:29-5:2 NLT - Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Prayer: Dear Lord - Thank you for the blessings you have provided. The scripture today calls me to righteous living. You require that my words, thoughts, and actions should conform to your Word. I am weak, but strongly desire to fulfill your commands. Help me to trust and obey. In the name of Jesus I pray.

For stay at home Christians...
We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home. The coronavirus has closed many churches.
Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.
There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 ESV
In the preceding verses, the Apostle John was providing a teaching on the Last days, and the struggles that will face Christians. But He also presents the hope we have in Christ, and the importance of keeping that hope alive in our lives.
John then states in 1 John 3:3 KJV – “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” John was saying that the hope of seeing Christ our Savior, and becoming like Him in Glory, should be the goal of every Believer. John goes on to say that this “hope” has the effect of becoming a filter or agent to keep us pure before the Lord.
That “hope” causes us to turn from the things of the world, and to seek after God. Christians must nurture and protect their “hope” of seeing Christ. If “hope” is strong, a Believer will grow in faith, and live a robust Christian life. Their testimony will be compelling and their daily goal will be to imitate Christ.
We will never reach perfection in this life. But, we can make the attempt to be more like Christ and less like our human nature.
