Free Friday! Great Joy

free_friday_medThe one great thing that the church lacks at the present day, and if you ask me to put it into as small space as possible I can put it into a word of four letters—and that is, “Love.” Show me a church in which the members love one another, and I will show you a church that is on fire in the cause of Christ. In it there is a revival every day for the twelve months of the year—the 365 days of the year are filled with continual manifestations of Christ’s love. That is the lack today. There is lukewarmness—coldness one towards another. In Second Titus Paul tells what Christians’ lives should be—sound in faith, sound in love, and sound in patience.

Free Friday! The Commands of Christ

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

The commands of Christ are both instructive and informative. While they give us instructions for life, they also give us information about His Father. For example, when we read Christ’s command to “be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matt. 5:48), we first see the instruction for us to live a life worthy of our calling as Christians, but we also see something about the God we serve and worship. So the command is also a revelation. One of Christ’s purposes in coming to the earth was to reveal His Father to mankind. His commands are one of the ways we can learn about who God is and what He is like because they reveal to us what is on His heart and reflect His nature and His character. Each command gives us insight into the nature of who God is and gives us direction in how to come into His presence as children come before their loving parents.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $12.95, is The Commands of Christ by Tom Blackaby.
