Read Philippians 3:1-10
You make much of the Word of God and God will make much of you. When you and I learn the Book, we’ll know more about Jesus, the rock of ages; the Bright and Morning Star. Take Jesus out of this Book and its empty.
I. KNOW THE WORD OF GOD BETTER.
II. CULTIVATE YOUR SECRET PRAYER LIFE.
Brother Roloff used to say, “No prayer is prayer until the Holy Spirit begins to pray.” You’ll be surprised at the sin of prayerlessness among Christian people.
A son asked his Dad, “Is God dead?” The father replied, “no son He is very much alive, why?’ The son replied, “well Dad, how come I don’t see you talking to Him anymore?” We get too busy and then forget to pray.
We are not saved by giving our hearts to Jesus or making some kind of a commitment, but by believing on Him who died for our sin. We need to say, “Lord, forgive me for forgetting.”
Moses had a secret prayer life until his face shone.
Jacob was alone with God and his name was changed to Israel.
David Brainerd prayed till he changed the American Indian.
Jesus prayed until He gave it all.
