The Three Legged Stool

When I was out to eat with Tyler. He brought something up that caught my attention. The Three Legged Stool. This represented the Christian foundation. Meaning, if you don't have this in your life, God will not move in your life.

1. Prayer
-Prayer is a necessity in your life. If you don't pray, God will not move

2.God's Word
-Meditation on the Bible, reading it is vital! If you do not do this, you lose fellowship with him and a calamity is about to happen.

3. Fellowship with believers.
-If you don't talk with other believers about what God is doing in your life and about life in general, pride will cultivate in your life. You will not be able to tell others your problems and or God.

Each point listed above represents a leg of the stool. If one necessity is missing, the stool or your life will fall! These three things must be in your life or something drastic needs to change.

In Prayers,

Good to see that you are back to blogging. You have been away for a while.

While I agree that those three points are essential. I would also include (1)ministry, a place where God has put you to make His greatness known. (2)Worship, exalting God's greatness in private and in public. Maybe those two points are implied some where. I could not see them though.

On another subject. I put this in a comment at my blog, but I don't know if you have read it. I am going to the NA conference now. Since I am a Boyce student I get a very nice discount. Thus I was able to aford it. Hopefully I will see you there.

I also think that another one should be added. You can pray, read your bible and be with belivers all you wan't and won't get anywhere if you don't do any of the things that God is asking you to. Therefore I would add another leg to the stool: Obedience to God
