Personal Devotion - Keep It Simple Saints (K.I.S.S.)
They told me to have personal devotion. Sounded good. But they forgot to tell me "how."
It seems this is a common problem. 90% of the people who label themselves as Protestant Christians want to have a closer relationship with Jesus. Yet, only 19% spend time with Jesus on a daily basis. (Research from Lifeway Resources)
Why? An amazing number answer, "Nobody taught me how. I don't know what a personal devotion is like." You can learn how!
Personal Devotion - Keep It Simple Saints has a personal assessment, it is active with further assessments along the way. There are some fill-in-the-blanks. In K.I.S.S. - Personal Devotion, you will learn:
- The hindrances to you spending time with Jesus.
- Two important keys to sustaining your personal devotion.
- Several models for practicing your personal devotion.
If Everybody Here Were Just Like Me (What Kind of Church Would this Church Be)
What is the measure of a great church? Jesus gave some insight when He said, "Upon this rock (the revelation of who He was), I build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." A great church:
- Has a revelation of who the Lord Jesus Christ is.
- Is "being built." No church is ever complete, we are always in process.
- The church is on the attack against the gates of hell.
A great church consists of great individual believers. How well are you doing with just these three aspects of Christian life?
What if each person in your church were just like you? Would it be a strong church? There are things the Bible teaches about the measure of a great church. Using the information found here you can grow to be a great saint helping raise up a great church!
Ten Days was developed as a tool to give people immediately after they were born again. But something interesting happened, Ten Days has taken off and has been used to start establishing new habits in existing believers.
Many believers need a refresher course on how to pray, read the Bible or understand the value of church attendance. Ten Days contains ten lessons every saint needs. The material is interactive. There are blanks to fill in.
Musings on Matthew (an eBook in both Mobi and PDF format)
From each of the 28 chapters of Matthew comes a thought-provoking devotion with accompanying questions. These short readings will give you seed thoughts to consider throughout your day. You will receive Musings on Matthew in both the Mobi and PDF format.
An example of the content. In listing the apostles selected by the Lord, Matthew lists himself by the name Matthew. No other gospel writer does so. What is the significance?
Another example: John the Baptist was a powerful preacher. His call to repentance was so impacting that decades later some John baptized were strongly adhering to his teaching. However, those same men had missed at least one of the three primary elements in John the Baptist's preaching. Find out what they missed.
Bad Decisions - The Legacy of Lot
Decisions matter. Decisions NEVER happen in a vacuum.
Jesus advised an audience to, "Remember Lot's wife." She made a memorable decision resulting in her destruction. We only know of one decision the woman made.
But Lot, he is a different story. We know of at least twelve decisions Lot made. Lot's collective decisions put his wife, as well as his daughters, in a position to make terrible decisions. Bad Decisions - The Legacy of Lot examines Lot's bad decisions and shows you how to make better choices.
What the Bible Says . . .
What the Bible Says . . . is a topical Bible Study originally designed for evangelism. However, many have used it for personal growth. The seven lessons address key topics like "What the Bible Says about Salvation," and "What the Bible Says about Speaking in Tongues."
Ideally, you would read and study this material and get such in-depth knowledge that you teach others what you learn. If this happens you have on hand the teacher material as well as student handouts and worksheets. You can duplicate the student notes and handouts as long as often as you want.
Originally written for Christian men, this book has swept far beyond that objective. Each Christian has the potential to realize as John Mark did that "Failure is not Final;" to practice "Living with the Long Look" like Jacob; and to make sure future generations need not deal with their curse. The latter being what Jabez did.
These seven chapters have depth and dimension. People have written about how it changed their view and salvaged them from a terrible outcome.
