An interesting gem in emphasizing fellowship with the Father Feb 23, 2006
For 16 years now, I have been collecting, analyzing, and writing about "quiet time" as it appeared in the early Alcoholics Anonymous Christian Fellowship in Akron. Quiet Time was a must. The "Quiet Hour" in United Christian Endeavor Society, from which the Akron program derived its major principles also stressed this time. But people got so tangled up in A.A.'s Oxford Group episode that they ignored the real ingredients of Quiet Time as it derived from the Bible. Discussions centered around "two-way prayer", writing down thoughts, and checking them. But the real picture was quite different in the early A.A. program. It started with sonship. The connection with the Father didn't start with some listening program. It started with being born again of God's spirit and thus becoming one of his kids. And acceptance of Christ in early A.A., plus "conversions" as they existed in Christian Endeavor established the standing as a child. The thing I like about the instant little book is that it stresses the desire of God to communicate and be communicated with--to have fellowship. And the key is found in 1 John 1. The aim is to have fellowship with our Creator, His son Jesus Christ, and other believers (sons of God). How is that done? Prayer - which involves thanksgiving, praise, asking forgiveness, seeking healing, praying for others, asking to be shown what the Father really wants. Bible study - without study of the Bible, the keys to prayer for Christians is just not present. Then comes the seeking of guidance--seeking revelation from God as to what He wants and offers. Early AAs used devotionals to help them in this project--The Upper Room, The Runner's Bible, and My Utmost for His Highest. What then? Jesus spelled it out in Matthew Chapter 7--He who does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Obedience, then, the walk in the spirit and in love that constitutes the love of God - obeying His commandments. That completes the picture so that one can ask, pray, give thanks, and praise according to God's will. The instant book would qualify as to approach and guidance. I like it. It's all about walking in the light as God is light. See my title, Good Morning: Quiet Time, Morning Watch, Meditation, and Early A.A. http://www.dickb.com/goodmorn.shtml God Bless, Dick B.
Great Book Sep 14, 2005
This little book is packed with a lot of practical information on having a quiet time. Several of these are so simple, yet things I was not doing. This book has really helped my quiet time. It is also good for teaching others how to have a quiet time.
