  • Getting Connected to the SourceHow to live a more spiritual life

  • We have no power until we get connected to the source and that source is God.I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

  • Establish contact points with Godthat they should seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; (Acts 17:27)And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

  • Listen to me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you when you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. And for many days Israel was without the true God and without a teaching priest and without law. But in their distress they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and they sought Him, and He let them find Him. (2 Chronicles 15:2-4)

  • Connect through Bible Study

  • Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, (1 Corinthians 2:12)Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

  • So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. (Daniel 9:3)

  • Connect through prayer

  • Translate your spiritual study into lifes day-to-day decisionsHow blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart. (Psalm 119:2)Because you did not carry it at the first, the Lord our God made an outburst on us, for we did not seek Him according to the ordinance. (1 Chronicles 15:13)

  • If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lords commandment. (1 Corinthians 14:37)

  • Find encouragement by associating with the Lords peopleand let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

  • And all those who had believed were together, and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions, and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. And day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved. (Acts 2:44-47)

  • Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins. (Acts 10:43)

  • And Peter said to them, Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)
