For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
- Hebrews 4:12
Biblically Building your Marriage from the Inside Out
Many people have tried to build their marriages from the outside in only to see them crumble in the end. Jesus is the Great Physician, and through His Word, He puts His finger on the crux of the issue, man’s heart. Jesus said, "Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so." (Matthew 19:8). If it is your desire to have a marriage that has true oneness that goes deep, and victoriously endures the storms of life, or you are a pastoral leader called to counsel and encourage couples, Transforming the Heart of Marriage will be a great tool for you. Not only will you have the book to use as a resource, but there is also a study guide included. Through God's Word we will allow Him the opportunity to diagnose the specific issues of the heart, and learn from Him the prescription only He can give through the heart-changing Gospel of Christ. If you are ready to put your own heart on the examination table, let's begin the journey to see lasting, eternal transformation in our lives that will touch our marriages and the world around us.
The Bible is God’s Word for all people.
God’s plan for salvation and Christian growth encompasses “every tribe and tongue.” And yet, God Himself instigated the diversity of languages. To address this, God has called faithful servants who have sacrificed their own safety and comfort to carry out the important task of preserving the accuracy of the Scriptures down through the ages as it is made accessible to everyone. From the scribes to the scholars who gave us the English Bible to the translators in the mission field today, their stories are remarkable. Learning about guardians of the Word such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, King James, William Carey, Hudson Taylor, Cameron Townsend, and others, will inspire you with the realization that God indeed uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things for His Kingdom.
Evangelism through the
eyes of a fisherman...
Life would never be the same for that group of fishermen Jesus invited on the adventure of a lifetime 2,000 plus years ago. If we hear what they heard, it may never be the same for us either. The voice of the Savior calling us from the passions of this world, to the much more compelling passion for eternal souls. You don’t have to be a fisherman to catch the correlations between a fisherman and an evangelist that inspire us to personally receive the invitation in this book. If you think fishing for fish could be an adventure you haven’t experienced anything yet! God has a bigger, more lasting adventure that He is inviting us on through His Word; “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men”. The good news is, if He can use a fisherman, He can use you. Through this simple exposition of His Word, I pray that we will personally hear the call as though we were standing there on the seashore of Galilee 2,000 years ago, and begin the adventure of reaching eternal souls for Christ.
