Free Friday! The Mind of Christ

free_friday_med
The mind has always been more important to God than our outward actions. In the Old Testament, the emphasis was on the heart. At times, the Bible uses the word heart where we would use the word mind, as in the injunction, “Apply your heart to discipline” (Prov. 23:12). In the New Testament, Jesus used the word heart in the same sense: “And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, ‘Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?'” (Matt. 9:4). Most of us, most of the time, are satisfied if we satisfy the expectations of society and the requirements of God by our outer, visible actions. God looks on the inner; He said, as early as Samuel’s day, that “man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). In the more restricted emphasis of the New Testament, we can say “the Lord looks at the mind.”

Free Friday! The Mentoring Manifesto

Free Book Friday for Bible SoftwareAs mature Christian men, we’ve learned that loving Jesus and following Him is the secret to life. If we’ve truly experienced walking with Him, we want to share that knowledge and experience with others. Mentoring is simply that sharing what we’ve learned about living life with guys who are a few steps behind us on the path. Just look at how Jesus made His disciples. He picked them, walked through life with them, teaching them what He knew along the way. He challenged them, prayed for them, loved them individually and collectively, and then He “graduated” them and sent them out to “pay it forward” to others. He gave them assignments and then debriefed them when they returned. Sometimes He took over situations and finished them when His disciples couldn’t. Jesus “rubbed off” on his guys. Sounds like a mentor to me.

Free Friday! 100 Years from Today

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Life on earth is so short. Eternity is so long. Yet, many of us focus almost entirely on the seventy, eighty or more years that we expect to spend on this earth and very little, if at all, on where we will spend eternity. This is not good planning, “…what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal Kingdom of God]?” (Mark 8:36, AMP).

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $6.95 is 100 Years from Today by Jack Hartman.

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.
