Our time is short on this earth. Jesus will soon be returning to take His children home ... but are we ready? There are preparations we can make. The book you are holding is a story about fighting the good fight of faith and conquering it with Christ’s help. God’s Word says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6) The Bible also says, “The truth shall make you free ... ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:32,36) Author Rick Streight speaks heart–to-heart with the reader about the realities of the Christian journey and the reward that is waiting for us. He also speaks about the dangers that surround us, the temptations we often struggle with, and how to overcome sin through Christ. He asks a major question: “Why hasn’t Jesus come yet ?” This book answers that important question. Are you spiritually homesick? God has made a plan that we may have “... boldness in the day of Judgment.” (1 John 4:17) Jesus depended totally on His Father for wisdom and power. If we depend on Jesus, we can receive that same power to live the Christian life maturely, with no short cuts—that’s God’s way! This book also provides answers as to how we can hasten Jesus’s second coming. May we all prepare ourselves for “the day of the Lord” through in-depth study of His Word with much prayer. Ask God, “How do I apply these things I am learning to my life?”

Speaking of Jesus

Some of us fear moments when we need to defend our theology. Some of us seek them out. But we are seldom ready the way Jesus seemed to be ready. So how do we draw others to God in the midst of these ordinary conversations the way Jesus did? In Speaking of Jesus, Carl Medearis draws on his experience of international reconciliation between Muslims and Christians to remind us of the heart of the matter: Jesus. Here he gives us tools, stories, and the foundation we need to move beyond “us” and “them” and simply talk about the One who changes it all. As Carl writes, “While others are explaining and defending various isms and ologies we’re simply pointing people to our friend. The one who uncovers and disarms. Who leads people right to himself. The beginning and the end of the story. A good story indeed.”

Peter uses two chapters, Luke 24 and Acts 2, to spell out the priorities of the Risen Jesus and how the apostles responded. From Luke he draws the following themes: Enjoy Jesus' Resurrection; Receive His Forgiveness; Welcome His Spirit; Feed on his Scriptures; Receive his Sacrament; Tell others his Good News. The parallel themes from Acts: Share with Jesus' People; Worship him always; Follow his teaching; Live his life; Resist his enemies; Trust Jesus for the future. The originality of this idea lies partly in its neat focus on two representative chapters, and partly in the intended presentation which will follow the same successful pattern of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Bible, with wide margins, pull out boxes etc.

As we prepare each year to celebrate the Incarnation, the Advent season reminds us that we live in an interim period between the First and Second Comings of Jesus Christ. In this book of twelve riveting sermons on a variety of Advent themes (all based on texts from Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary), Michael Ruffin explores the challenges of Christian living in this time between the First and Second Advents -- particularly the tension between the modes of patience and action. Though we await Jesus? return with hopeful anticipation, Advent waiting is active waiting. Ruffin's messages invite readers to share in the richly rewarding life of faith, while providing abundant comfort and inspiration for those who endeavor to live as disciples of Jesus in the modern world.

In this uncertain time there is One you may depend on for now and eternity. He is the same yesterday, today and forever - stable and dependable in every way. Prayerfully, this book will introduce you to Him. Jesus Christ is alive and loves you. “Call upon Him while He is near.” - Isaiah 55:6 Dear Reader, There is a special revelation for backsliders in this book. I urge you to read it and let the Holy Spirit revive you and your personal relationship with Jesus, our Loving Savior. He did not come to give us religion; He came to give us life, which is in Him. He came so that we should know Him personally and know how much He loves us. Receive His grace to walk in victory by faith and the power of His Holy Spirit. I know there are people out there who once walked with Jesus as out of the Book of Acts and you yearned for everyone to know Jesus. If you have ever been disappointed by people, misguided by religion, overwhelmed by condemnation - don’t give up. You were under law, not grace. “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” - John 1:17 KJV Give the real Jesus a chance. He is the One - and there is only one - Who truly loves you unconditionally: the Jesus you met at your salvation. Just to truly know Jesus is the abundant life, and you know and remember, by the Holy Spirit. Trust Him again, forever. In Him, br> Joy D. Siano
