Free Friday! Preaching with Bold Assurance

free_friday_med

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $21.95 is Preaching with Bold Assurance by Hershael W. York and Bert Decker.

Although God is sovereign and can work through anyone he chooses to use, he clearly uses those who are most committed to preparation, study, and hard work. If we want to have a real demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, ministries, and sermons, we cannot simply do nothing while hoping that God decides to use us. We strive and agonize in our study and commitment to our calling so that we are always at God’s complete disposal.

Quick Tip – Use the ESV with Strong’s

quick_tips_fb

One of the great features in WORDsearch is the ability to easily access Strong’s Numbers from the King James Version (KJV), Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) and New American Standard Bible (NASB) translations. Today, the English Standard Version (ESV) has been added to that list. Yes, you can now use Strong’s with the ESV!

The ESV is an “essentially literal” translation. It aims to be transparent to the original text so that you, the reader, can directly see the meaning and structure. It’s one of today’s 5 most popular Bible translations.

Wondering what to read next? With the thousands of books on the WORDsearch site, it can be tough to decide on what book to add to your library. But we’re here to help! Today’s Staff Pick highlights one of our employee’s favorite books. And don’t miss the special discount, plus an excerpt of the commentary on John, at the end of this post just for stopping by!

Without a doubt, prayer is essential to every believer. It is the way to communicate with our Creator and will transform our lives. In 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18, Paul urges us to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

In An Expositon on Prayer: Igniting the Fuel to Flame our Communication with God, Dr. Jim Rosscup, a Bible teacher for over 50 years, has created an incredibly in-depth study of every single prayer in the Bible. There are introductions to each prayer and outlines to go with them. Each prayer is broken down to verse level, really digging deep into who, what, when, where, why, and how of the prayer.

Guest Post – Who We Are…What We Can Be

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy’ (1 Pet. 1:14-16).

Have you ever been to an animal shelter to look for a pet? There are many cute and cuddly dogs and cats, who are well-trained and would make excellent pets found there. There are others, however, for whatever reason, that bark and may try to bite you, who exhibit anti-social behavior. Most people usually pass them by, but there can be potential in them, if you look past what they are and think of what they can become. Cleaning them up and training them not to be a menace to themselves and humans, some can go through a transformation that offers company and enjoyment for years to come.
