“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that…” Acts 3:19
God has given the life of His Son for our redemption from sin, in order that…why? Why are we called to repent and return to God? In Series Three of the One with Christ studies we discover the reason for our redemption and learn that Jesus saves us for a purpose greater than heaven. He saves us for an entirely new life in love and unity with Him. But how can we know the reality of our new life? How can we prepare our hearts to be overtaken by the Spirit of God?
WHEN THE DISCIPLES WITNESSED the power of prayer in Jesus’ life they wanted to pray like Him. Prayer was an integral component of Jesus Christ’s character and ministry. Through the Lord’s Prayer, Christ gave believers the secret to an effective and fruitful prayer life. Since prayer is a heartfelt communication between believers and God, knowing God as the Father and King transforms how we value prayer. The Lord’s Prayer is an invitation for all believers to savor at the revelation of God as our Father and King.

From the Author
Christianity is littered with prayer cliché, prayer works, prayer changes things, PUSH – pray until something happens. We have the bumper stickers, have worn the T-shirt or bought the DVD, but did that transform your prayer? I will be lying if I say I have found the secret, I don’t.
After noticing my prayer life hitting a dry patch, I began questioning if I knew what prayer was. I believe God led me to Luke 11 and Matthew 6 there I discovered how knowing God revolutionize prayer. Our prayer life is energized not by knowing what, why or how we pray, rather through the knowing who we pray to.
The Secret Place is my new book focusing on how knowing God transforms prayer. The book explores the petitions listed in the Lord’s Prayer and the parables on prayer and the kingdom of heaven. My prayer is after, especially during, reading this book you will be moved to a deeper, intimate relationship with God.

When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst. But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.
Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we’re offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty – so that we can be filled until we overflow.
Come Empty – Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love guides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God’s love and His ability to overcome life’s hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God’s presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you’re hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God’s peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
