I spent two years there serving God in the pro-life prayer movement. Christina Styles : There is something to be said about the movement of the Holy Spirit related to inner peace. Through many different seasons of my life, I have made decisions out of zeal, dreams or desires and they never quite work out great. Serving at several stadium prayer rallies with TheCall, Christina Styles has seen miracle healings occur But when I feel that God has given me a dream, spoken to me somehow or a scripture jumps out, there is something about the inner peace and when that peace is gone.
I feel like that has directed me more than almost anything else with these moves.
Then an opportunity, sometimes three opportunities present themselves and one of them, my heart will find peace in. Even if it does not make sense to anybody else, I feel the peace of the Lord about making that choice and I follow that peace. Christina Styles : I believe my calling is to be a friend of Jesus. So much of my history leads me to this place. Are you an anomaly? So it brings me back to those words of Aimee Semple McPherson. As the church, as the bride of Christ, what do we have to offer Him? We have nothing without Him. And what does He do?
He clothes us in white!

He exchanges our ashes for beauty. If we start reading at Matthew , and read until and when the disciples left their work and followed Jesus, it seems Jesus had never met those four men before. The key to understanding Matthew and Mark and Luke is to read it in the context of all four Gospels and pay close attention to the details. In fact, not only did they know him well, they were already his disciples when he called them from their boats. Actually, as this study develops, we will see that he called them from their boats on two different occasions. Andrew and Peter were brothers, and were deeply spiritual men, something that is obvious from reading John 1.
Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist before he ever met Jesus John That speaks volumes about Andrew. Of course there would have been many things John taught about the spiritual situation of the times, and so Andrew would have seen through the religiosity and corruption of the spiritually bankrupt Pharisees and Sadducees.
Furthermore, John would have taught his disciples much more about the truth and error of the religious system of his time. The Four Gospels do not say much about the teaching of John, which is understandable since the Gospels are about Jesus, not John. One of the great truths that John would have taught his disciples was that he was the forerunner of the Messiah who was to come shortly.
However, because the roads deteriorated quickly, there was no need to repair them until just before the arrival of the dignitary. The fact that John declared that he was the voice who shouted to repair the road of the Lord meant the Lord would come on the scene shortly after he did. Of course John did not tell people to fix the roads Jesus traveled on, rather, John told people to fix themselves and the culture so they were ready for the arrival of the Lord. For example, Abram to Abraham Gen.
That Peter would accept what Andrew said and also immediately accept the new name Jesus gave him shows us that Peter was a deeply spiritual man too, and immediately willing to become a disciple of Jesus. The next day Philip and Nathanial began to follow Jesus, along with Andrew and Peter, and this was before John was arrested and before Jesus started ministering in Galilee John Jesus called the disciples from their boats after John was arrested, so they had already been following Jesus for some time Matt.
The record shows us that Peter, Andrew, Philip, and Nathanial were following Jesus, and we can also assume that since James and John were business partners with Peter and Andrew, and also deeply spiritual men, they believed what Peter and Andrew said about Jesus.
But if Peter and Andrew were following Jesus before John was arrested, why were they fishing when Jesus called them? In the biblical culture a person could be a disciple or follower of a rabbi without giving up his occupation. Although some men were full-time disciples, discipleship often did not require that. For example, Andrew was a disciple of John John but still made a living as a fisherman, which is what he was doing when Jesus called him Matt.

God will not allow His Church to drift from its appointed course or fail to fulfill its divine destiny. To those who have separated themselves from the Church, I say, my dear friends, there is yet a place for you here. Come and add your talents, gifts, and energies to ours. We will all become better as a result. There are few members of the Church who, at one time or another, have not wrestled with serious or sensitive questions. Faith is to hope for things which are not seen but which are true. If you could see into our hearts, you would probably find that you fit in better than you suppose.
You might be surprised to find that we have yearnings and struggles and hopes similar to yours. Your background or upbringing might seem different from what you perceive in many Latter-day Saints, but that could be a blessing. Brothers and sisters, dear friends, we need your unique talents and perspectives.
