Guiding Principles For Growing Your Christian Church
Recycle this, recycle that. Everyone has heard by now that we must recycle everything we can to save the earth. But is that really true? A plastic grocery bag takes 1,000 years to decompose in landfills. If that one little bag takes that long, consider your mall shopping bags, your trash bags. There is a growing industry in recycling, taking one thing and making it another. Old tires are shredded and used as playground tread. Grocery bags are remanufactured into clothing. These are examples of the economical aspect of recycling.

Cultivate an ever-growing relationship with Him by spending your time with Him in prayer, reading and studying His Word. It is only the presence of God in your life that makes all the differences. When you keep God first, you will be amazed at what He will do for you. Do not forget that the proof of love is not in spoken words, it is embedded in action. It is the love that God has for us that made Him to take such a great action on our behalf – giving His only Son Jesus as a sacrifice for our salvation! Your services to God or man will carry greater rewards only when they are done out of a genuine love (John 3:16).

To some, prayer is the only way to give them confidence, to pursue a very difficult task. To others, prayers are one way to keep their hearts light and to feel that closeness to God. Christians have learnt the importance of frequent praying, and starting from morning prayers, lunch prayers, dinner prayers and other prayers are some of the much known prayers. Online prayer is one of the most widely spreading ways of praying since one doesn’t have to move to the local church. You can have your prayer request while at home or at your place of work.
