Read More – How Can We Rest in His Presence?

readmorecircle1

1 John 3:19 This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

College Press NIV Commentary: Our love helps us to know whether we belong to the truth. John tells us that when we know that our hearts condemn us, our love is insufficient. Since God is greater than our hearts, then he can know who we are and what we are. Let us not try to deceive God by having only a “love with words or tongue.” God knows our hearts. We can set our hearts at rest in his presence if we are obedient to his command. We know that we “belong to the truth” when our consciences are at ease in his presence.

Start a Disciple-Making Movement with Disciples Path

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-10-20-39-am

True discipleship is a road Christians are meant to walk together. God intends that we are actively involved with someone who is discipling us while we are also discipling someone else. But in most churches, the responsibility or the congregation’s spiritual progress is put on the pastor and his preaching.

LifeWay Christian Resources (our parent company) has created a new resource with the prayer of launching a disciple-making movement in churches that will take some of the pressure off pastors. Disciples Path: The Journey is an intentional one-year plan for discipleship founded on Jesus’ model of discipleship.

Created by 14 disciple-making church leaders, Disciples Path is four volumes of 13 sessions of Bible studies (Note: not available in WORDsearch) focused on showing believers how to become mature disciples who in turn make other disciples. These volumes will guide church leaders through how to instill the doctrines, biblical understandings, principles, and practices of discipleship with the end of making disciples who would make disciples. This group of leaders included senior pastors, education ministers, small group pastors, collegiate ministers, and discipleship pastors from various ministry areas and traditions. The outcome is a series of studies that, when used as suggested, is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone willing to disciple another believer.

While most small-group studies facilitate transformation through relationship and information, these disciple-making resources emphasize the principles of modeling, practicing, and multiplying.

It’s our prayer as a ministry that relationships forged through The Journey will lead to disciple-making for generations to come. Will you join us in that prayer? You can also preview three sessions free at disciplespath.com/thejourney.

Free Friday! Experiencing Grief

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Grief—what do you know about this experience? We use the word so easily. It’s the state we’re in when we’ve lost a loved one. It’s an inward look. You’ve been called into the house of mourning. It’s not a comfortable place. It’s not where you want to reside, but for a time, longer than you wish, you will. Often it will hurt, confuse, upset, and frighten you. It’s described as intense emotional suffering or even acute sorrow.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $3.95, is Experiencing Grief by H. Norman Wright.
