"Read This Book To Learn More About Evangelism"

PT28-TSOG.jpg

G’day! The PulpTheology book this week is “The Surprise of Grace” with Alphy the WOWChurch Cat.
Have you ever been surprised by Grace? Grace is not only amazing, but it is also surprising! Alphy the WOWChurch Cat investigates Romans 5:1-11 and discovers what it means for the Christian to be living under the grace of God. In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul is logically stating his case about God and humanity. In Romans 1-3, Paul highlights humanity’s separation from God. What can be done about that? The answer to that comes in Romans 4! Paul declares that God has provided the very means for people to be justified – that is, for the person to be declared right before Him!
Paul’s argument is that people can be in a dynamic relationship with God, no longer separated from God, and it is by faith alone in God that is the key to having been justified by God. It is by faith in God alone, through God’s grace alone as to how people can be justified before God and be able to stand in His presence which is Paul’s argument. Being justified means the removal of guilt and the penalty of sin from the person while at the same time being declared right by God. How is that done? We will come to that shortly!
People choose to be in this relationship with God. They can avail themselves of it as many have done or simply ignore it as many people do. God does not force but He does compel. Love never forces but it does compel, urge and encourage! You have taken up that offer and now you are in a relationship with God? WOW! Awesome! Excellent! ! Good! So what? That is where Paul is with his argument in this letter to the Romans.
Now in Romans 5, Paul gives 8 different glimpses from different angles about the Christian living under and within grace – God’s unmerited favour to undeserving sinners. Paul here is creating a fabulous stained glass sphere depicting life for the Christian believer who is now under grace and has Jesus as their master and Lord. Come on in and see what Paul has to say about these blessings or consequences for those who have taken up God’s free offer of being justified by faith through God’s grace alone? Let’s investigate Romans 5:1-11 together.

Whether you have not started the Christian journey yet, you are just starting your journey as a Christian, or have been a Christian for a while, you can either learn afresh or be reminded about the Wonderful Surprise of Grace. Come on in!

"The Surprise of Grace" available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle with ISBN: 978-1793020857

Glimpses Into Leviticus

The book we are looking at this week is Glimpses Into Leviticus: a book of Joy. (part of the "Glimpses Into" series)

Leviticus is perhaps the most maligned, misunderstood and under-read book of the Bible today.

Andrew Bonar once said: "There is no book that contains more of the very words of God than Leviticus. It is God that is the direct speaker in almost every page; his gracious words are recorded in the form wherein they were uttered."

How are we to read this amazing book? Leviticus does have important things to tell us about God, sin, obedience and holiness. Perhaps most importantly it tells of God wanting to live with His people. Some of the words and phrases we commonly use in the English language, come straight from the book of Leviticus. Come! Let us glimpse into this marvellous book of the Bible together - Leviticus the book of joy! Why do I call it a book of joy? One reason is that it reveals a God who wants to live with His people. For other reasons, you will have to look inside and read it to discover why!

Here is what 1 Amazon reviewer said: "5 stars! A theological view of Leviticus as opposed to c]the view it is an archaic 'laundry list'. Whether you agree with some of the conclusions or not, it will help you want to delve deeper, think more deeply about this often avoided book."

"Read This Book To Learn More About Evangelism"

PT27-RTBTLMAE.jpg

G’day! The book this week is "Read This Book To Learn More About Evangelism". Inside this little book, there is something for you to learn afresh or be reminded about that great subject of Evangelism, regardless of who you are.

Evangelism seems to be a scary word for a lot of Christians in the Church today. Perhaps even yourself. In what we call the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16-20, we see that before He ascends back to God the Father, Jesus issued this commandment to his disciples. They will do as Jesus commanded – go and tell the world about this Jesus and teach them to be his disciples.

Some 2,000 years later, we are the products of their obedience to Jesus. We also are to do likewise. Inside this little book, we seek to learn together more about Evangelism. We will endeavour to answer questions such as: What is evangelism? What does the Bible say about evangelism? What can evangelism look like? What is the message of evangelism? Who is evangelism for? Why do Christians evangelise? Come on in to learn afresh, or be reminded of, evangelism. Come, Church! Let's pray together!

Whether you have not started the Christian journey yet, you are just starting your journey as a Christian, or have been a Christian for a while, you can either learn afresh or be reminded about the prayer and your Devotional Life. Come on in!

"Read This Book To Learn More About Evangelism" available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle with ISBN: 978-1723440052

"Developing Intimacy With God: A Little Book of 95 Prayers"

PT25-GGHHD.jpg

G’day! The book this week is "Developing Intimacy With God: A Little Book of 95 Prayers". Inside this little book, there is something for you to learn afresh or be reminded about, regardless of who you are.

Prayer is to be a sign of intimacy with God as it develops our relationship with Him. Prayer I have discovered, is to be an ongoing conversation with God.

Prayer is how we are energized and invigorated as we strengthen our relationship with Him. God is personal and He loves to hear us and talk to us. Prayers are not just the unprompted and spontaneous variety, but also the written form. Jesus Himself would have said scripted prayers as part of 1st century Jewish worship. In this little book, we have some prayers from the Bible as well as from the Church down through history. They are prayers which I have used in my own life - both personally and corporately.

This book is also as a way to celebrate that moment in time, when on 31 October 1517, Martin Luther, started what we know now as the European Reformation, when he nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Castle. Therefore, in this little book, to celebrate that momentous act in Church History, there are 95 prayers – prayers from Moses through to Martin Luther and onto to John Stott of our own century. Come, Church! Let's pray together!

Whether you have not started the Christian journey yet, you are just starting your journey as a Christian, or have been a Christian for a while, you can either learn afresh or be reminded about the prayer and your Devotional Life. Come on in!

"Developing Intimacy With God: A Little Book of 95 Prayers" available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle with ISBN: 978-1512136838

"God Gets His Hands Dirty: The Story of Christmas"

PT25-GGHHD.jpg

G’day! The book this week is "God Gets His Hands Dirty: The Story of Christmas". Inside this little book, there is something for you to learn afresh or be reminded about, regardless of who you are.

Ahhh Christmas. When people around the world remember that moment in time when God Himself, got his hands dirty and entered our world. Christmas is the most wonderful time of year! Christmas, where the birth of Jesus Christ is celebrated around the world - by Christians and others of all faiths and none. That is how God got his hands dirty. These celebrations are diverse and transcend cultures, peoples and languages.

Of course, most people stop with Jesus being a baby and continue no further with Him. Christians believe that Jesus’ birth was the culmination of thousands of years of God telling the world that He was coming and coming to show that God gets his hands dirty - transcending time and space.

In the Bible, the whole Old Testament is a united story which speaks about this event - the coming of the baby we know today as Jesus Christ. Written in short chapters and accessible language, we inspect together Christmas future through the eyes of Isaiah and Zechariah, before going on to look at Christmas past and Christmas present. Come inside to either learn afresh or be reminded of the people and events of the Christmas story - the why, how and who.

Whether you have not started the Christian journey yet, you are just starting your journey as a Christian, or have been a Christian for a while, you can either learn afresh or be reminded about the Church. Come on in!

"God Gets His Hands Dirty: The Story of Christmas" available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle with ISBN: 978-1506104348

HAHA - Heroes And Heretics Abound

PT03-GICAY.jpg

 

I know what you are probably thinking! History is boring! Was I right? I have heard it a million times! I think history can be fascinating, particularly Church history. Why do I think that? Because how can anything with heroes and heretics be boring? More than that, the story of the Christian Church is your story! Yes! You, dear reader! Your story, regardless of where you are from and who you are. Your story, regardless of your belief or non-belief. Perhaps you know very little of it. No worries! This book is written with you in mind.

Before Jesus Christ ascended back to heaven, he commanded his 11 followers to go and tell others about Him and His work. They did, and we stand here today as a product of their obedience. But how did the Church get here today? Together we explore her birth, growth and development. Development to the point where today, she is worldwide and has at least 2 billion people who identify as a Christian, of one kind or another. All the while, striving to avoid the mistakes and embrace the joys of her history.

We also interact with some people of today, who tell about their relationship with the Church. Finally, we also interact with some of the great minds of Church history, looking at some of the prayers of the Church. As the Church of today and tomorrow, we can all learn something from this exciting story. Come on in!
