40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 22- Birth Pangs
Friends, when the kingdom of God is ready to be birthed, those who walk through it will experience things that they never thought in a million years they would ever experience.

How Being a Slave Gave Me Value. A politically incorrect blog.
"The translation of doulos by 'servant' rather than 'slave' [led] to the total effacement of its ancient significance (1965: 319). This ennobling title means the believer belongs to the Lord, who constantly "gives Himself away" in infinite love, through faith. Indeed, the doulos (slave) of Christ is His very Bride (cf.

This is possible because the believer is joined to Christ as a genuine member of His very body (Jn 14:20; 1 Cor 12:13).

Word from God to my Heart
Many moons ago, as a freshman in college, I walked along a lonely path from the science hall back to my dorm. Ahead of me on the path was a friendly looking student crunching his way through the leaves. All about making friends, I quickened my step till we were walking side by side. "Hi!" …
