We want to be all right in the eyes of the law of our Land, of those we respect, of our Loved ones, of those we work with We strive to gain and then keep this right standing. In other words, we long to be "righteous." And there is ore right standing that is far better and more important than any of those. It changes grid Liberates every aspect of our Lives, for ever, and yet none of us can earn or maintain it ourselves. It's right standing with God. Romans 1 -7 is all about that righteousness It shows us why we don't have it, why we need it, and how we can receive it. It thrills us that "the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" [Romans 6 v 23] These seven studies will help you to understand one of the most read, most written-about parts of the Bible. And as they enable you to unwrap Gods precious gift of right standing with him, they'll transform your hearts, lives, identities and perspectives. Book jacket.

The ancient prophets were a different breed. Though embedded in the midst of the people, administering and serving in much the same capacity as their counterparts, an inner longing to know set them apart. It was not enough to be a minister of the Lord; they wanted to know the intent of the one for whom they ministered. For them the morning sunrise was the beginning of another days inquiry, an inner desire to belie life on a rock eternal. It is through them the Creator finds voice, as the prophet scans the worlds panorama with spiritual eyes, ever longing that all people would see what they see and understand what is heard. It is the cry Moses had for Israel, that all would be prophets. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:2021 NIV). The Bible is both history and a prelude of history with an impeccable purpose. It does not deviate in dealing with three objectives: the fall of humanity, its redemption, and final liberation. As a worlds best seller, it is faulted for removing the mystique, updating and critiquing future events only as those events occur. Until the Bible deliberates, the archives of world history are mere fillers of rampant human instinct. But its final resolution is here, with immense biblical documentation, with the promise to be understood by all people. Keeping in mind that Gods intent remains to redeem and liberate, even to the very door of human extinction.

What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world. Designed for use as a college or seminary course, Conformed to His Image helps us build our lives on a fully biblical perspective. Exploring twelve approaches to Christian spirituality in depth, Dr. Kenneth Boa corrects our tendency to pick and compartmentalize. Pointing the way instead to an integrative, whole-life approach, Dr. Boa shows how each spiritual paradigm discussed is just one important facet in the gem of authentic and powerful New Testament living. With chapter overviews and objectives, questions for personal application, a glossary, and a list of key terms, Conformed to His Image will prove a defining text for the student, pastor, and church leader of today . . . and tomorrow. 12 Facets of the Complete Christian Life Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Others Compassionately Paradigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal Perspective Disciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical Differences Exchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in Christ Motivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical Incentives Devotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with God Holistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of Christ Process Spirituality: Being versus Doing, Process versus Product Spirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the Spirit Warfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil Nurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Discipleship and Evangelism Corporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship

As a child of God and a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven, do you know how you are connected to heaven on as far as your daily life is concerned? Moreover, did you know that you have a heavenly account where you can lay up treasures for yourself? Our Lord Jesus Christ revealed it to us when he said; But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven Where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt And where thieves do not break through nor steal For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also Matthew 6:20-21 And how do we lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven and how do we tap into this heavenly account to make use of these treasures on earth? The treasures we lay up for ourselves in heaven are not only to be enjoyed after we leave this earth and go be with the Lord. The enjoyment of our heavenly treasures begins right here on earth as it is the Fathers will for us in Christ. This book reveals not only how to lay up the treasures; it also reveals how to access the treasures as well in order to have your needs met according to the riches of the Fathers glory in Christ Jesus. A must read for every kingdom citizen on earth.

Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth. Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and his plan for the world. Paul's letter to the Romans remains one of the most important expressions of Christian truth ever written. Its message forces us to evaluate who we are, who God is, and what our place in this world ought to be. Going beyond the usual commentary, this volume brings the meaning of Paul's great letter into the twenty-first century. Douglas Moo comments on the text and then explores issues in Paul's culture and in ours that help us understand the ultimate meaning of each paragraph. A final section suggests ways in which the eternal theology of Romans can be understood and lived out in our modern culture.

Scholars and students alike have hailed the book of Romans as one of the greatest single literary works of all time. When you consider that it is also the Word of God, it makes the study of his remarkable book all the more valuable for help in day-to-day living. Relying on the truth that Scripture is the best commentary on Scripture, author Fred Scheeren walks us through Romans by tracing the concepts and promises found in this awe-inspiring book through the New and Old Testaments. If youve ever wondered about: how to access the grace of God; how to walk victoriously in the Spirit; what it means to be grafted in as a believer; what it means to be heart-circumcised; the role and meaning of baptism in a believers life; or how to avoid error when studying the Scriptures then you wont want to miss this Bible study guide. Better yet, find a group of like-minded friends to join you in creating a small study-group experience. Such a collection of people might also quite appropriately be called a life group, as the members do more than enhance their knowledge of Scripture. They develop close, personal relationships as they apply Gods Word to their lives and support each other in the positive growth they experience as a result.

Help Overcoming Painful Experiences (H.O.P.E.) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help people experience a life transformation through their emotional pain so they can live the purpose-filled, victorious life God intended and designed them to live. We set people free from emotional bondage and empower them to live a transformed life. To accomplish our purpose, the H.O.P.E. program was designed to help people 1) resurrect hope, 2) overcome emotional pain from a variety of issues, 3) build a safe and healthy support network, 4) comprehend the truths about God in the midst of pain while exposing and replacing lies, and 5) experience a life transformation through the healing and restorative power of Jesus Christ. Our transformation model consists of three levels. The Spiritual & Emotional Coachs Guide is used in Level 2 when we pair our members with a Spiritual and Emotional Coach (SPEC). SPECs allow us to extend our ministry by providing additional support for our members through a one-on-one mentoring relationship outside their small group. The analogy used for our members need of a SPEC is that of a contractor who can help them with their emotional and spiritual construction. Our members need a contractor (SPEC) who follows the plan of the Architect (Jesus Christ) in their life and who can help them rebuild by doing the same thing. Our members need a contractor (SPEC) who can coach them using their own experiences with the spiritual and emotional rebuilding process. Therefore, this book was designed to empower and equip our SPECs by helping them realize and tap into the knowledge and tools available to them in this role. This book also contains a topical Scripture reference guide for convenient access to verses that can be applied to a variety of issues. In addition, this book was designed to help familiarize SPECs with our organization and what their member is going through.

On Tuesday, May 7, 1889 at eight o'clock in the evening, Ellen G. White arrived at the Ottawa Kansas Camp Meeting, where combined meetings for organization, delegations and conference work was being done. This Camp Meeting took place approximately six months after the historic 1888 General Conference at Minneapolis and the passionate sermons given by Alonzo T. Jones, Mrs. White, and others have given clearer insights to the 1888 message.
