1). The way that God has decided He will work IN us; and
2). The way that God has decided He will work THROUGH us.
Prayer: The Way God Works
IN and THROUGH Us
Let me repeat that:
• First, Prayer is the way God transforms us into what He wants us to be like. We read, study, memorize and then ask Him in prayer and He transforms us.
Prayer is a journey into the presence of God. We enter God’s presence by way of His Tabernacle, God’s tent of Meeting. Every point of the God’s Tabernacle points to Christ.
The first and primary lesson we learned about the Tabernacle was where God placed it. In the center of the Camp, with smoke slowly rising from the altar and with the Twelve Tribes in an ordered arrangement around it around. Looking intently we would note a long, black, unattractive tent of porpoise skins.
All of us in Christ’s Church are called from darkness to light at salvation; and we are saved from the power of Satan; and we are being transformed into saints of God. That process in called consecration. Last week as we looked at the Church at Thyatira (Revelation 2:18-29), we saw that their consecrated lives were slipping because of compromise with sin and false doctrine.
Jesus called them to repent, to have a change of mind that would lead to a change in behavior. The letter to Thyatira is a challenge from Christ for His children of faith to do what is needed: repent of compromising their lives of sanctification.
COR-02 050619AM Last week we saw how Christ our forerunner has forever anchored our souls safely in heaven. If that were all there was for us in Hebrews 6—that would be enough for a lifetime of hope. But there is more. Turn with me again to Hebrews 6:17. Look again at these precious words of security, […]

Tonight our goal is to practice the words from God in Hebrews 10:24-25.
As we turn there we are looking at the simple reality of applying God’s Word.
How do we stir up others for God?
God says we are all to have as our goal, every time we gather that we are to think about our mandate, or our mission from God as we gather:
1. How to Considering One Another:
2. How to Get Stirred.
3. How to Stir Others.
4. How to Stay Stirred
Please open with me to Ephesians 6:10-17.
As we turn there, we will see a truth that just jumps off the pages of the Scriptures once you see it: every verb & pronoun (all 14 of them) in this armor passage is plural.
