Featured Books Plus a GIVEAWAY: The Way of Hope by Dave and Beth Weikel

23138668The Way of Hope – Growing Close to God Through Loss


Passing through the valley of the shadow of loss can appear to be an unending gray, dry, barren journey from which you would never return. It seems impossible that spiritual life could even continue in such circumstances, let alone grow. Yet it is especially there, in your darkest hour, that God will bring you light and new life like you’ve never known before—if you will see that He is there with you.

Follow The Way of Hope with Beth and Dave Weikel as they lead you along your own dark paths toward the true light, found only in God’s Word. They themselves have passed the way of tragic loss several times and have found always that, through the pain and brokenness, God’s promises in Scripture become so much more meaningful.

Discover personally what it means to be blessed because you mourn— what it means to be comforted by God. He promises you there still can be hope, still new life.

Featured Book: Spiritual Disciplines for Today by R. Douglas Wardrop

sdt

At your salvation, your spirit was renewed, but your soul and body was not changed.

Spiritual Disciplines are given to us by God. They provide a way of sowing to the Spirit and they help you put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” (see Ephesians 4:22-24). By doing this, you “renew” your soul so it will agree with your renewed spirit. As the saying “means to an end” goes, the Spiritual Disciplines are the “means,” while the “end” is intimacy with God.

By exercising the Spiritual Disciplines, we are helped to mature spiritually and are put in a place where God can work within us to transform us. If we truly want to walk with God, we will exercise the Spiritual Disciplines.

Spiritual Disciplines are for everyone to use and should be a natural part of a Christian’s life, as natural as breathing.
