Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: The Power of the Telic (Biblical Purpose)
The radical re-orientation: Purpose through prayer. (Mark 1:32-38)
Jesus faced the constant demands of people (ministry). He recognised the priority of withdrawing and spending time in prayer. In prayer we can refocus and recharge in order to keep direction and purpose in our life. It puts all we do into perspective. Today, when things get busy and chaotic, let’s try taking a ‘prayer break’ to refocus where we are going.
