If you are Too Busy to Pray, You are Too Busy!
I Corinthians 2:2 - For I determined not to know anything among you except
Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
When the Apostle Paul addressed the Corinthians, he placed great value in
knowing the Lord Jesus Christ and Christ crucified. Current believers benefit
by assessing if great value is placed in knowing Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Individuals determine the extent of interest in personal learning.
Goals of personal learning may change during the course of life.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the most desired goal, foundation and source
of personal learning.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the primary source of learning through prayer.
He is the source of learning through the Holy Gospel and the Divine services.
Jesus Christ is the source of learning through the writings and teachings of
The Lord Jesus Christ is the primary goal for serious believers.
The Lord Jesus Christ said: “I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever…”
The Lord Jesus Christ is the most desired source for learning.
The Lord Jesus Christ said: “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
The Lord Jesus Christ is the soundest foundation for learning.
He said: “Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken
him to a wise man who built his house on the rock…and it did not fall…”
The Holy Apostle Paul found the greatest value in the Lord Jesus Christ
and proclaimed that value in writing. The Holy Apostle Paul wanted others
to experience the same joy in Christ.
The Holy Apostle Paul made it clear his commitment to Christ was without
reservation or compromise. He said: “…with all boldness, as always, so now
Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.”
Contemporary believers benefit from casting behind them detractions and
impediments serving as barriers to unity with Christ. The Holy Apostle Paul
made it absolutely clear he was committed to Christ whether in life or in death.
Every day of life is precious to be used for the glory of God and for the
salvation of the soul. The Holy Apostle Paul embodied the importance of God in
his life. He lived with the zeal for Christ that has lasted through the centuries.
Parents showing love for Christ will influence their sons and daughters.
Husbands and wives committed to Christ further the development of their marriage.
One person in the home exhibiting love for Christ makes a difference.
Turning to Christ in repentance and remaining united with Christ transforms
a person’s life. The dramatic change in the Holy Apostle Paul’s life is enduring
testimony to the difference Christ makes in a life.
Choosing Christ opens life to realms beyond human expectations.
