Confusion reigns over the topic of prayer. Yet, at one time or another just about everyone prays-but often it’s like shooting in the dark. Wonderfully, the Bible-and Jesus especially-shows us what real prayer is: talking to the real, living God with humble confidence.
If we look at what the Christian message tells us about “connecting” with God, we’ll see how and why we can talk to God knowing that he will listen and respond. Forget formulas and techniques. This is about real communication with the real God-the unique Christian privilege of real prayer.
Contentment : Healing The Hunger Of Our Hearts (Student/Study Guide)$8.99Add to cart
We all know what it is to feel discontented with our lives with what we have, how much we can get, what we do, who we live with, how we are and what the future promises.
The constant hunger for something more may seem like the aches and pains of growing old something that we must just put up with in this far-from-perfect world. But the Bible shows that discontent is the symptom of a lethal disease that will kill us if we do not find a cure. It was discontent that first led humans into rebellion against God, with the catastrophic consequences that have followed from that decision.
Yet Jesus Christ promises that anyone who believes in Him will never again hunger or thirst. The apostle Paul was able to say that he had learned the secret of being content in any and every situation in need or in plenty. Discontent is a problem of our hearts not our circumstances. This Good Book Guide can help us to understand why we become discontented, how Jesus Christ alone can help us, and on a practical level, how Christian living can bring the treasure of contentment to our daily lives.
Holy Spirit : Understanding His Work In Our Lives (Student/Study Guide)$8.99Add to cart
You may have heard a lot about the Holy Spirit… or very little. Christians and churches seem divided over this issue. Some are always talking about gifts of the Spirit, baptism of the Spirit, Spirit-filled people and so on. In other circles, the Spirit seems to be rarely mentioned.
There are plenty of books around that will claim to offer insight into the work of the Spirit…but what does the Bible actually say on the subject?
This Good Book Guide has been put together from a survey of every single verse in the Bible that mentions the Holy Spirit and His activity. It will help you discover what God’s Word means when it talks about being ‘filled with’ or ‘led by’ the Spirit. Or the differences between the Spirit’s work in the Old and New Testaments. You may be in for some surprises!
But most of all, this Good Book Guide will show how your life can and should be changed and shaped by the Spirit of God, who gives us life, and brings glory to Jesus Christ.
Please note: These studies take slightly longer than a typical Good Book Guide study.
