    Ryan, what a great post! The value of secret prayer can sometimes become understated when we try to be “good” Christians, just because we’re so busy. A great reminder to truly seek God!

    • Thanks for the comment Veronica. As Christians, most of us try to be busy doing our “Christian Duty.” Serving on committees, doing outreach, serving the needy, hurting, sick, lonely in the church etc, going to bible studies, organizing projects etc. These are all good things, but the irony in it all is that we neglect the most important thing – our restored relationship with God. That restoration is the only reason we can do any thing good in the first place – Let us truly seek God first.

  3. Thanks for this post Ryan! It seems to be the theme of the month for me. We’ve just been reading from Francis Chan’s book “Crazy Love” and he speaks on this subject as well. So often I serve God by habit, and not because I want to. My lukewarmness must be abominable to God.
