#6 Temples of the Spirit

   Andrew Murray- The Spirit has been poured out. He is yearning over us, and He is ready and able to take possession of His Church. Let us be ready to confess honestly the current state of the Church and the share we have in it.

   Let all who believe in the love and almighty power of God proclaim that God is longing to fill his redeemed people with the power of the Spirit. (Google image, Woman worshipping by lake)

#5 Finished and Unfinished Work

   Andrew Murray: "Because ye are sons, God both sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father" (Galatians 4:6). When God revealed His love for us in the gift of His Son, His great work was completed.
   When Christ was raised from the dead and seated on the throne of God, His work was also completed. The dispensation of the Spirit had begun. (Google image, Seeking God's Voice)

True Christianity

The way we view the future lies in how we see the past
And how we do respond to how the die in life is cast
As each event can mold us and the virtue we might lose
Or can be simply building blocks upon which we might choose

#4 Stepping Into Spiritual Life

   Andrew Murray: Private devotions give us a clearer insight into what God is absolutely willing to do for us. A life prepared for us by God Himself is waiting to be revealed in us by the Holy Spirit.

   We must only be ready to know and confess how much is lacking in our spiritual life. (Google image, Putting God First)

#3 The New Testament Standard

   Andrew Murray: "Howbeit for this 
cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him" (1 Timothy 1:16).

   In any judgement we make, everything depends on our standard of measure. Many believers become content with the levels of ordinary Christianity. (Google image, Pure Devotions to God)

10 Prayers God Always Answers

Carrie Lowrance:
  "Prayer can be such a beautiful, simple, and complicated thing at the same time. 

   Everyone prays in their own different way and still, our loving God hears every one. Getting an answer? That can be a whole different story. (Woman praying in church Photo Credit: ©Unsplash)

#2 The Spirit of Devotion

   Andrew Murray: "Pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father  . . .  shall reward thee openly" (Matthew 6:6). We use the word devotion in two ways—with regard to prayer in our private devotions and with regard to that spirit of devotion, or devotedness to God, which is to mark our daily life.

   If we meet our Father in the inner chamber, He will give us the open reward of grace to live our life to His glory and devote our whole being to His will.
