    In addition to providing uplifting music, K-LOVE has ten full-time pastors to give you Christian advice and as you walk through the challenges of life. The following are some common answers to questions that listeners have about marriage, faith, the Bible and a host of other topics. If you have a question for one of our pastors not listed below, feel free to contact us.

    Question: "How do I know what my spiritual gift is?" Angela, TX
    Answer: Every believer has at least one spiritual gift according to I Corinthians 12:7 (NLT), "A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other."  Although we all have a spiritual gift, we often do not know exactly what that gift is or how it should be used. Knowing what brings your heart joy is a good first step to discovering your spiritual gift.  What your natural reaction to a situation will offer insight as well to what gifts you possess. For instance, a person with the gift of exhortation will immediately begin to encourage someone facing an obstacle. Another tool to aide you is a spiritual gifts assessment available online.  Finally, exercising what you believe to be your gift is also an important determining factor of whether you posses a certain gift.
    Question: "What does it mean to renew your mind?" Ken, KS
    Answer: "Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what the nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires" Romans 8:5-6 (NIV) There is a battle going on inside you between your old, sinful nature and your new nature that comes from Christ. If you want to win this battle, you’re going to have to change the way you think, because the way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act.  Changing the way you think will require bringing your thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5), humbly acquiring the mind of Christ (Phil 2) and controlling what you think upon (Phil 4:8). As you do these things your mind will become aligned with what the Spirit desires.
    Question: "How do I pray correctly?" Jack, OK
    Answer: Prayer is a conversation with God. It doesn't matter if you sit, stand or lay down while praying all God is concerned about is the condition of your heart.  1 John 5:14-15 says to have confidence when we come to God in prayer, knowing He hears us and will grant whatever we ask as long as it is in His will.  Philippians 4:6-7 tells us to pray without being anxious, to pray about everything, and to pray with thankful hearts.  The correct way to pray is to be honest and open with God remembering that God knows what is best. Just have an honest conversation with the Lord.  The Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 offers a pattern and list of things to pray for.  It includes worship, confession, prayer for others, and prayer for yourself, and victory over sin.
    Question: "I feel like I have just been going through the motions in my walk with God. How can I change that?" - Wanda, FL
    Answer: The first issue Jesus corrected in the first of seven letters in Revelations is this issue of first love. He never called us to a religion or a list of rules but to a vibrant relationship with Himself. He gave instructions to the church at Ephesus on how to restore "first love" He said to "remember" what our love for Him was like when we first believed. How we were passionate and obedient, hungry for His word. Secondly, He said to repent, that means to change our minds and course correct. Then, thirdly to return to the first works, the things you first did when you first believed. First love must be our first priority because the danger is, we become like the Pharisees, "They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me." ( Matt 15:8)
