Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on a rock. -- Matthew 7:24 As a church, we have been walking through the Book of Matthew and the Sermon on the Mount and interacting with some hard discussions and difficult convictions along the way. At the closing of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus leaves us with the charge "everyone who hears these words and puts them into practice" -- where the pedal hits the metal on all we have learned, discussed and absorbed. We have heard and we now need to act.
On May 27th, we will begin a church-wide effort to do just that. We will be working through a book by John F. DeVries called Why Pray?, a 40-day book full of practical, everyday information and direction on why we pray. Each day of this journey will be accompanied with entries on this blog as Point of Grace staff and leaders work through the daily steps in their own lives and the lives of their families. We will also be acting on the readings during church services on the Sundays throughout this 40 day period.
Be on the look out this coming week for your copy of Why Pray?. Copies of the book will be available once they arrive from the publisher.
