    How to Fight Your Enemies On Your Knees

    in Christianity

    TEXT: Luke 6:27-31

    During the many times we have talked about prayer in the Bible, we have often mentioned the importance of going to our prayer closets -- a private place where we can get away from the world and alone with God. However, we must not fall into the trap of treating our prayer closet as a place to hide from the world and the difficulties of life. Yes, prayer to God is a way of gaining comfort and solace as we fight off the world, the flesh, and the devil. However, the prayer closet is also a place of preparation. It is a place where we get suited up to go back out into the world and do battle in a Godly manner. Jesus' words in our passage for today paint a vivid picture of this truth.
    Listen to Jesus' command: "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you." Jesus's words are not complicated. They are not difficult to understand. But they are remarkably hard to obey. Just how can you love your enemy? In our natural mindset, the word "enemy" denotes some whom we have hatred for. How could we love such a person?
    The key is to get rid of our natural mindset. Jesus challenged his followers to live beyond the reasoning of the world. The natural mindset says, 'Hate your enemies.' It feels unnatural for us to do anything else. However, the Christ-like mindset says, 'Love your enemies.' So, how can we go from hating our enemies to loving our enemies? One way in which we can do this is through prayer. Jesus tells us, "pray for them which despitefully use you."

    The Benefits of Praying Alone to God (Praying Through the Bible #161)

    in Christianity

    TEXT: Luke 6:12-16

    One day, a telephone repairman was working on fixing the telephone lines in a church. As he worked, he heard the pastor talking to two of the deacons about the most effective praying position. The pastor shared that he felt the key was in the hands.  He always held his hands together and pointed them upward as a form of symbolic worship.  The first deacon suggested that real prayer was conducted on your knees.  The second deacon said that they both had it wrong -- the only position worth praying in was while stretched out flat on your face.  At this time, the telephone repairman couldn't stay out of the conversation any longer.  He said, "I have found that the most powerful prayer I ever prayed was while I was dangling upside down by my heels from a power pole, suspended forty feet above the ground."
    Sometimes, it takes a dramatic incident to force us to our prayer closets, or to our knees, or even on our faces in prayer to God. However, the Gospels testify to the fact that Jesus made spending time alone with God a regular part of his life. We see it again in this passage from Luke 6. In the midst of the great work he was doing, Jesus always took the time to get alone with God and spend time praying to Him. From this passage, we notice three benefits of making time to pray alone.
