How to Consecrate Yourself to God

To receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, a Christian must first consecrate him or herself to Christ’s service. So what is consecration, and how do you consecrate yourself to God?

Every thoughtful, spiritual Christian recognizes that something is missing from the church. We diligently do the work of God, yet we see few conversions, and even fewer that are sincere. Why is this?

How They Prayed in the Upper Room

How did the 120 pray in the upper room? The book of Acts doesn’t say much. But, Catherine Booth’s stunning sermon, “Filled with the Spirit,” gives key insights. Notably, the disciples met several indispensable conditions in the upper room. These conditions apply equally to us today. First, the 120 went through deep self-abasement. Second, they...

Real Love in the Church

Love is one of the most common topics in Christian teaching today. Often, this love is reduced to tolerating sin, and in some cases, abuse. But what is real, Christian love in the church?

Who Was in the Upper Room?

Were sinners in the upper room? Saints? A mix? Sister Alexandra shows from Scripture that only saints were in the upper room. Moreover, God would not have sent the Holy Spirit to any other group.
