"He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge." Proverbs 14:26
"Our sin as believers affects our fellowship with God but not our relationship....We as believers confess oursins not as sinners to a judge but as children to a father. Confession does not return us to God's good grace but turns us to God's face, from which we turned to follow after sin."Finding Forgiveness would be an exceptional discipleship tool or even for a special emphasis Sunday School study resource.
"A fleeting smile lit Julianne's face before her gaze traveled to the Bible on the bureau. 'If we had prayed harder for peace, could we have prevented the arrow from touching you?' "I don't know," Marc-Paul admitted. "Certainly the hand of God could have nudged the arrow off its path= and maybe He did, for it didn't strike my heart or head. But the greater miracle is for us to have peace and grace in our spirits, no matter what the circumstances."I always try to read whatever book I hold in my hands with a gospel-centered lense. Some books are easier to see the gospel in play than others. The Mark of the King was very easy to see an underlying picture of the gospel. Julianne begins her journey with a mark, literally a brand identifying her as a criminal. But, she ends her journey with a mark of grace upon her life. What happens in between is nothing short of the grace upon grace spoken of in the book of James in the Bible. The Mark of the King should be in your personal library and Jocelyn Green is an author to be followed.
"Identity isn't grounded in who we are; it's grounded in who He is. We've bought the notion that our worth has something to do with us. That if we want to be smart and strong and beautiful and successful, we need to call ourselves our, speak into our own greatness. But the calling is God's, not ours."These 60 "I Am's" are rich, biblical callings on the lives of those found to be in Christ Jesus. I've not read a more helpful and deeply joyful book in, well maybe ever! Michele takes readers to the word of God and points out who He is and therein, we find who we are. This message is needed in our world and it is needed now.
