The Bible says this universe is ruled by the mighty will of a sovereign God. On the other hand, it says our prayers make things happen. How can both of these things be true? God is deeply affectd by our prayers.

Just Lift a Finger

God is right here. Closer than you ever dreamed--as near as your breathing. He's waiting to be touched. That makes prayer so simple. All Adam has to do is lift a finger. Any time, day or night, you can too.

Exodus 32, Matthew 5

Why is Prayer so Hard?

Mark 1:32-39

Prayer is a spiritual discipline. If you're going to be a disciple, you need to exercise discipline. Discipline isn't like eating your broccoli as much as it is creating space in your life for God to work.

Why is Prayer So Easy?

Luke 1:1–13

God wills that you pray; God delights in it and really wants it. Prayer is as central to the meaning of the created universe as you can get. He's near as your breathing. Just lift a finger.

Can I Pray My Way to Happiness?

Psalm 1

You can have a faith as orthodox as a bishop and still be a train wreck. Does the Christian life promise more than it can deliver? Learn the key to happiness, according to the Bible.

Work and the City

2 Thessalonians 3:6-13

The Christians at Thessalonica decided to opt out of the work force, pray and wait for Jesus to return. The tentmaking Apostle Paul was not amused. One of the most Godlike things you and I can do is get up and go to work in the morning.

Sex and the City

Tolerance was perhaps late Roman culture's highest virtue. Jezebel, a member of the church at Thyatira, thought she should help the church evolve to a changing world. Sound familiar?

Success and the City

Ephesus was a big, bold and upcoming city, and its church was the most effective church of the New Testament. Peachtree has also had a big impact on its city. But is it good enough?

God and the City

Jeremiah 29:4-7; Isaiah 65; Revelation 21

God invented the city. Cities can be wicked. They are also culture shapers. Even when believers are marginalized, we're to work for the welfare of our city.

Do You Love Me?

John 21:1-22

God can replace our fears and faithlessness with a yearning for new adventure that can only be known with a spirit made bigger by Christ’s redeeming act on the cross.
