The Morning Edition: Alone With God by John MacArthur
Tuesday mornings, 9:15am, YFMB Great Room

A great champion of prayer once compared the praying Christian to a blacksmith stoking his fire. It's in the intimacy of prayer—when we're alone with God—that we keep the iron hot and God skillfully refines and shapes us. And like the blacksmith trade, prayer is not for those timid of work. Intercession is a difficult, perplexing, and solitary battle that is won or lost from one moment to the next.

But the battle to pray is worth fighting. Prayer anchors the soul while lifting us to the very throne of God. It's the language of heaven and the key to unleashing God's power in our lives. In Alone with God, John MacArthur explores the anatomy of effective prayer and presents a refreshing, biblical model you can begin following today.


The Morning Edition: Forgotten God by Francis Chan
Tuesday mornings, 9:15am, YFMB Great Room
Beginning Tuesday, May 1

When is the last time someone used that word to describe you? It doesn't make sense that Almighty God would have children characterized by fear and insecurity. He put His Spirit in us so we could be known for our power (Acts 1:8; 2 Timothy 1:7). Sadly, most believers and churches are known for talent or intellect rather than supernatural power. What's worse is that we're okay with it.Could it be that we've forgotten the One who distinguishes us from every religion and cult in the world? Through scriptural support and compelling narrative, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of the Holy Spirit as the Bible describes Him. He reminds us that we were not created and saved merely to survive our time on earth. Chan contends that we've ignored the Spirit and are reaping the disastrous results. It's time for the beloved church of Jesus Christ to reverse the trend of neglect. Let's pursue the Spirit-filled life of effectiveness God desires and we desire.


The Evening Edition: A Vine-Ripened Life by Dr. Stanley Gale
Tuesday evenings, 7:00pm, YFMB Great Room
Beginning Tuesday, April 3

This is a study of the fruit of the Spirit, distinguishing the biblical fruit from the world's version. The wrinkle is that it approaches cultivation of the fruit from the ground of abiding in Christ. It is only by abiding in Christ that we bear authentic fruit, abundant fruit, fruit that will endure.

In Galatians, where the Apostle Paul lists nine of the fruit of the Spirit and urges us to walk by the Spirit so that we will not gratify the desires of the flesh, he presses the rhetorical question: "Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?" (Galatians 3:3)

‚ÄčThe same thing can be said of our union with Christ. Having found life in Christ, are you now finding fruitfulness in your own strength? Christ is the ground for spiritual life and spiritual maturation.
