Thomas Manton shows us what the Saviour requires in terms of our words, thoughts and affections in prayer. This shows us what prayer is and how to pray.
Meaningful conversation has become challenging in recent times. Here is some practical counsel as to why it is important in spiritual matters and how it can best be done.
In hard times we need more than ever to dwell on what is most important and the goal of everything. God’s glory is ultimate and this gets everything in its right perspective.
It’s easy to forget as well as to promise to pray for others. But praying for others is more than a “to-do” item. What should our prayers for them sound like?
We may be tempted to question how things are with ourselves and around us, but Christ’s infinite wisdom is ordering all things for our good. No one knows better how to do that.
We barely notice many things we depend on until things become more challenging. But we need to acknowledge often that all outward necessities of this life are the gift of God.
It’s often the easier option to submit our conscience blindly to others rather than the Word of God. Sometimes we don’t realise we’ve done it. We need to know how to nurture rather than outsource our conscience.
Scripture gives us the best and most realistic help for those who experience mental distress of various kinds. Though believers may experience the bleakest possible situations they are sustained.
Self-pity is healed by God’s infinite pity. But it is such a serious disease that it can only be cured by thoroughly exposing its danger and purging its corruption.
This is not about what you might expect. Showing love for our neighbour through this command is not simply about what we do or do not do. It reaches to our hearts also.
Heavy-hearted discouragement is real. It is a constant temptation. Yet, if we seek out reasons and opportunities to encourage others it is bound to help encourage ourselves.
Nothing could be more counter-cultural than living in a way that is God-centred rather than serving the great idol of self. This displays our real purpose. It shows others what we were meant to be.
