The amount of time we spend with Jesus is directly proportional to our effectiveness in living a Kingdom lifestyle.
We experience a taste of Kingdom goodness as we spend time with Jesus regularly (Matt. 17:1-2).
Listening to Jesus' voice and fixing our eyes on nothing but Him allows us to experience the Father's pleasure in Christ, which transforms our self-esteem (Matt. 17:5-8).
As God leads and we discern people are ready, share your personal experiences of Christ with others (Matt, 17:9-13).
Our power to influence events is directly proportional to the time we spend with Christ (Matt. 17:1-2, 14-16, 19-21).
Listen and hear, trust and obey. Experience Jesus creatively meeting daily needs (Matt. 17:24-27).
Notice the intensity of E.M. Bounds, in a quote from his book, Necessity of Prayer. "Prayer ascends by fire. Flame gives prayer access as well as wings, acceptance as well as energy. There is no incense without fire; no prayer without flame."
Ask God to give you a heart to spend additional time with Him. When will you schedule this time?
