The Purpose and Essence of Prayer (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Prayer is an essential part of our lives as Christians. When we pray correctly, we communicate with God and give heaven consent concerning what is already done. Praying in the midst of our daily routine is much more effective than compartmentalizing our prayers into a specific time slot. What Jesus did on the cross took out all the work and toil from prayer.

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Prayer is extremely important in the life of a Christian. Not only is it how we communicate with God, but it also provides an opportunity to commune with Him.

The Bloodless Savior

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

To rightly divide and correctly analyze the Word of truth, we must understand the contrast between the old and the new covenants. One of the major changes from the old to the new is that we now have the opportunity to receive new natures and be led by the Holy Spirit, who comes to live in born-again believers. Now, instead of having to rely on what we must do to be in right-standing with God, we only need to believe in what Jesus already did.

What Does It Mean to be Free from the Law? (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Grace gives us limitless freedom that was previously unavailable under Mosaic Law. As born-again believers, we are no longer bound by restrictive rules, but this does not mean we are free to continue sinning. We are now free from the penalty of not being able to obey the law through rule-keeping, and from the resulting feelings of condemnation, guilt, and shame. However, we are not free from God’s moral law contained in the Ten Commandments.

Understanding How to Handle the Death of a Loved One

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The death of someone we love can be heartbreaking. Whether it is gradual or sudden, it is painful and brings sadness and grieving. Loving someone makes us vulnerable to sorrow; however, God does not want us to refrain from loving people simply to avoid future grief when they die. God’s Word reassures us that any emotional pain we feel now is only temporary, but the joy from being reunited with our loved ones in heaven will be forever. This redirects our focus and gives us hope. It is okay to grieve when someone dies; however, knowing God’s promises of life after death helps in the healing process, matures us spiritually, and enables us to comfort others in their time of sadness. We will never become trapped in despair or hopelessness when we depend on God and His Word to comfort us when we are hurting.

What Does It Mean to be Free from the Law?

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

To appreciate what it means for us to be free from living under the Law of Moses, we must first understand the concept. Although Jesus replaced the law with grace, this does not negate the need to continue keeping the Ten Commandments; the difference is that instead of trying to follow rules through our own efforts, we now have the Holy Spirit’s help to keep them perfectly.
