By Nancy Ruth / October 27, 2022 /

Are you familiar with the P.R.A.Y. acrostic? It’s a simple way to learn how to pray. I didn’t make it up, and I’m not sure who did, but I use this tool frequently. Too often, our prayers become like letters to Santa Claus. I want this and this and this and this. God is not…

By Nancy Ruth / January 5, 2020 /

I don’t know if people are doing this where you live, but I’m seeing a lot of posts on Facebook choosing one word to characterize a person’s New Year’s resolutions moving into 2020.

What is Pharisee-ism? How do you know if it describes you?

By Nancy Ruth / May 6, 2019 /

Can you spot a modern-day Pharisee? How do you know if you are one yourself? I recently read a very interesting book by Timothy Keller called The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism (not an affiliate link). I admire the way Keller speaks like a normal person, not a hyper-educated scholar. He…

Prayer is more than a suggestion

By Nancy Ruth / February 18, 2019 /

If you were completely honest, how would you rank your current prayer life? Non-existent? Mediocre? Ok? Strong? Or vibrant? I doubt many of us (including me) would rate ourselves as having a “vibrant” prayer life. What does the Bible say about prayer? Is an “ok” prayer life really ok? Colossians 4:2 (NASB) 2 Devote yourselves to…

What does “worship” mean?

By Nancy Ruth / October 29, 2018 /

Worship. You hear that word thrown around a lot at church. There’s the “worship service,” the “worship center,” “worship music,” “praise and worship,” and probably a few I forgot. I get it. Worship is important. But what is worship exactly? Is it more than singing a few Christian songs? (Yes.) Are we worshiping things other…
