10 Things to Consider at the Start of a New Year of Ministry

Image
Harriet Tubman (1822–1913) knew God’s leading. She once said, “’Twant me, ’twas the Lord. I always told him, ‘I trust you. I don’t know where to go or what to do, but I expect you to lead me,’ and he always did.” She was a bold and audacious African-American abolitionist in the middle 1800s. She tackled injustice and made a difference that reverberated in history. How did she find her freedom from slavery, free hundreds of slaves and become a nurse and a spy and scout in the Civil War? She followed the Lord. What could happen this new year if we followed the Lord like Harriet Tubman? The psalmist wrote, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105). In what ways might God’s word lead us this year? Here are 10 things the Lord might have you consider as you approach 2020. 1. Celebrate victories Celebrate what God has done over the past year. Maybe you saw people repent of sin, come to Christ or get baptized. Perhaps you planted a church, raised new leaders and…

From the publisher:The biblical teaching that Jesus was the Suffering Servant who carried the sins of His people when He went to the cross is vividly brought home to children in The Donkey Who Carried a King, the latest children’s book from respected theologian, author, and educator Dr. R.C. Sproul.

Davey was a young donkey who was bored and unhappy because he was never given anything to do. Then one day, some strangers came to the gate―and Davey’s master picked him for a very special task. Davey carried the King, Jesus, into Jerusalem. A few days later, Davey saw some angry people making the King carry a heavy beam of wood. Davey could not understand it―until another donkey helped him see that the King was being a Servant on behalf of His people.

The Donkey Who Carried a King offers a unique perspective on the events of Jesus’ Passion Week and…

Growing in Holiness: Understanding God's Role and Yours by R. C. Sproul (Giveaway)

Image
Goodreads is giving away 25 copies of Growing in Holiness: Understanding God's Role and Yours by R.C. Sproul.
From the publisher: The Christian life is a process of growing in holiness, our natural response to the good news of our redemption in Christ. This kind of growth is gradual, and obstacles are plentiful. Thankfully, we don't have to go it alone. God has given us his Spirit so that we can overcome temptation and become more and more conformed to the image of Christ. But how does the Spirit work? What is the nature of our own personal involvement in the process? And how do we know if we are making progress?


Drawn from the lectures of beloved theologian R. C. Sproul, Growing in Holiness explores the doctrine of sanctification, offering insightful commentary on themes such as developing perseverance, overcoming barriers to growth, dealing with feelings of inadequacy, cultivating love for God and others, exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit, and much more. Whether you're …

In the Cauldron by Lew Paper (Giveaway)

Image
Enter to win your chance the book In the Cauldron: Terror, Tension, and the American Ambassador's Struggle to Avoid Pearl Harbor by Lew Paper.

From the publisher:This is not just another book about Pearl Harbor.  It is the story of Joseph Grew, America’s ambassador to Japan, and his frantic effort in the months before the Pearl Harbor attack to orchestrate an agreement between Japan and the United States to avoid the war he saw coming. It is a story filled with hope and heartache, with complex and fascinating characters, and with a drama befitting the momentous decisions at stake.

And more than that, it is a story that has never been told.

In those months before the Pearl Harbor attack, Japan and the United States were locked in a battle of wills. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's economic sanctions were crippling Japan.  America's noose was tightening around Japan's neck — but the country's leaders refused to yield to American demands. 

In this cauldron of boiling te…
