Free Friday! The Incredible Power of Kingdom Authority

free_friday_med

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $19.95 is The Incredible Power of Kingdom Authority by Adrian Rogers.

Ours is a supernatural faith built around three personal miracles. Our faith commences with a miracle. We come into the kingdom by a miraculous new birth (John 3:3). Our salvation concludeswith a miracle. At our Lord’s coming we will be made like him (1 John 3:2). What a transformation! But there is the continuing middle miracle that many seem to miss. This miracle is that we can reign in life right now with Kingdom Authority.

Free Friday! Ryrie’s Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine

free_friday_med

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $10.95, is Ryrie’s Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine by Charles C. Ryrie.

Sound doctrine is, literally, healthy doctrine; therefore, to learn, teach, and preach doctrine brings spiritual wellness and wholeness to believers. The same word used in 3 John 2 for physical health is used in the pastoral letters for spiritually healthy doctrine (1 Tim. 4:13, 16; 5:17; 2 Tim. 1:13; 4:3;Titus 1:9, 13; 2:1, 7). In light of these verses, who can dare to suggest that doctrine is not practical? Notice also that some of these verses are addressed particularly to Timothy and therefore apply especially to ministers and leaders (1 Tim. 4:13, 16; Titus 2:1, 7).

God’s Hand Is on Him

Many times I have been asked how I explain Billy Graham’s successful work. I could mention his ability as a preacher, his co-laborers, and the effectiveness of prayerful organization. But my reply is, “God has His hand on him.” That’s the difference between success and failure in the Lord’s work.

Free Friday! The Leadership Lessons of Jesus

free_friday_med

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $9.95, is The Leadership Lessons of Jesus by Bob Briner and Ray Pritchard.

The idea of a “calling,” particularly for those not employed in some sort of professional ministry, is often seen as archaic, impractical, or quaint, even by Christians.

This view is damaging, however, both to God’s kingdom and to individual lives and careers. As Christians, we must understand that God has a call on our entire lives, including our careers. To see this any differently denies both allegiance to God as our Creator and an understanding of the unbelievable price Jesus paid for us on the cross. It keeps us from living fully integrated lives in which all things work in synergy for our good and for the building of God’s kingdom.

Free Friday! Is God Calling Me?

free_friday_med

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $9.95, is Is God Calling Me? Answering the Question Every Leader Believer Asks by Jeff Iorg.

Few concepts are talked about more and understood less in Christian circles than God’s call. Some believers claim to be called into ministry, to missions, to the pastorate, or to some other church leadership role as a special instruction from God. Others contradict that narrow understanding with the claim that all believers are equally called to serve God. Still others point out phrases in the Bible such as “called to be holy” or “called out of darkness” (i.e. 1 Pet. 1:15, 2:9) as evidence that calling is just another word for a common spiritual experience, not a special or specific instruction from God.

Who is right about all this? Does God call people to serve him in special ways? Are all believers called? If they are, are all callings equal before God? Is the concept of call simply another way to describe the sanctification process? Is it an overspiritualized way to describe how circumstances just happened to turn out? Or does all this fit together somehow as these definitions and understandings relate to one another?
