Free Friday! The Lay Preacher’s Guide

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

“Professors in our colleges do not understand it, therefore cannot teach it; students have to acquire it when actually at work, through much tribulation; preachers know every way better than the way direct to conscience and heart; Sunday-school teachers fail for want of ability to arrest and fix attention and arouse spiritual sympathy; parents make no study of the art of appeal, so that their religious influence is thin, furtive, shamefaced. Do skilled anglers use any bait that comes handiest? Do they fling the line into the water with an air that says, ‘There, bite or not as you like,’ as if the trout were certain to jump at our hook? If it will not bite, we blame the water, the time of day, the temperature, the rod, the fish, everything but the ill-adapted bait and the ignorant fisherman. We are fools and blind! Christ told the apostles they should ‘catch men alive,’ but He said, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ It takes supernatural wisdom to ‘catch’ the natural man.”

Free Friday! Essential Church?

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

The dropouts are not mad. Many still claim their faith. They can still have a positive view of their pastor and church. They aren’t losing their religion. Most just see no reason to stay; the church is not essential to them. It is just another social venue with which they have little in common. Dropouts feel this way because many within the church assumed that they would stay. Their parents assumed that the teachings of the church would be well received via religious osmosis. But the Great Commission explicitly commands us to teach and disciple. Neglecting this element of the gospel imperative creates an atmosphere of spiritual and doctrinal atrophy resulting in a nonessential church.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $14.95, is Essential Church? by Thom Rainer and Sam Rainer.

Why do so many young adults (18 to 22) leave the church, and what will it take to bring them back? This important question is examined and duly answered in Essential Church?, a follow-up to Thom S. Rainer’s best-selling Simple Church, cowritten this time with his son, research expert Sam Rainer.

Free Friday! Whatever It Takes

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

I never cease to give thanks to God for His constant care. Clearly on this flight and every flight in World War II, I firmly believe that He preserved my life for the missionary service He later called us to. I could not have imagined all of the spiritual joys, battles, and victories He was going to give to us in our missionary service and witness to the Japanese who were so aggressively seeking to destroy us!

Encouragement is a powerful force because it is a form of hope, one of the three things we know will always remain (1 Cor. 13:13). Every man, woman, and child stands in constant need of encouragement. Offering encouragement to others is easy to do, costs us nothing, and delivers kindness, love, and energy to the weary and downcast.

Today is The National Day of Encouragement, “a day dedicated to uplifting those around us and making a positive impact, no matter the magnitude.” To encourage you, we want to share a few personal stories of encouragement. We hope this inspires you in your walk with others. And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about Free Friday! You can download today’s free book at the end of this post.
