Easter is a True Christian Love Story by James Thomas Lee Jr

When most people think about a true love story, they naturally envision a couple jumping into a bed and making mad passionate love to each other. If the scene is from a movie or from a television show, then they would probably see the two going into a bedroom together and then waking up the next day lying next to each other. However, while that in many cases might be an example of true love, it pales in comparison to the true love that God the Father had showed to human beings when He had offered His only begotten Son on the cross of Calvary. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” For one thing, the love that people see in the movies or on the television only presents a temporary kind of love that must cease when one of the two partners passes away. In fact, in many cases, that kind of love actually ceases long before the passing of one of the two partners.

But the love that God has expressed for ALL human beings is eternal. When Jesus had died on the cross to pay the sin debt for all people that will come to Him by faith in the right spirit and with the right attitude, then He had paved the way for them to be reconciled to Him and to have everlasting life in heaven with Him. So while that might not seem like such a big deal to many people, it will someday be a very big deal once those people have ended their time in this existence. Therefore, the purpose of this book will be to talk about the perfect love that God has showed for each person. In doing that, it will talk about the last week of the incarnated life of Jesus. That week had begun with His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on what has traditionally been recognized as Palm Sunday in many places of the world.

It will then talk about the fig tree that He had cursed. On the next day, He had gone into Jerusalem to teach some parables and some discourses in the temple. He had first spoken three slanderous truths against the ungodly spiritual leaders of Israel. After that, He had spoken about paying tribute money or taxes to the Roman authorities. He had spoken about the resurrection. He had spoken about the two greatest commandments by which all people should live. He had pointed out the extreme sacrificial offering of a poor widow and the extreme hypocrisy of the Pharisees. He had spoken about some of the events of the end of the Age. He had spoken about the preparedness of ten virgins. He had told a parable about the servant with ten talents. He had then concluded His discourses for the day by sharing with them a parable about the sheep and the goats. So, each of those twelve oratory remarks will be discussed chapters two through five of this text.

After those discussions, chapter six will examine the last hours before He had been taken into custody. Some of the events considered will be His last supper with His disciples, His high priestly prayer for those people that follow Him, His betrayal by Judas, and the six trials through which He had been rushed as the Jewish leaders had sought a quick execution. Chapter seven will discuss His having been scourged and His crucifixion. Chapter eight will discuss His seven statements from the cross. Then, chapter nine will conclude this text with a final look at God’s perfect love. The hope in writing this book is that all people will be drawn into a closer relationship with the Lord that had died for them on the cross. He is definitely worthy of all praise.

The Path to Spiritual Maturity (30 Day Devotional Series Book 5) by Mark J Musser

George Muller wrote, “The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts.”A.W. Tozer once commented, “Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.”Some devotionals offer you only a Scripture or two followed by a short blurb and a pithy quote. If you are looking for spiritual nourishment, that would be nothing more than a light snack. True spiritual sustenance requires much more.If you want a “full meal,” check out the following books in the 30 Day Devotional Series. Each devotional in this dynamic series will provide you with a portion of Scripture to read, a handful of questions to think through, suggested prayers to offer up, and action steps to apply God’s Word.The Path to Spiritual MaturityMany Christians live a “surface-life” existence, while all sorts of things are churning below the surface. They put on their Sunday best, show a fake smile, loudly sing songs of praise, say “Amen” at the end of prayers, and use all the right words while in church. But under the surface, there is unresolved hurt, excused sin, struggles, and unhealthy habits which are not being addressed. Can you relate? If so, spend the next 30 Days learning to dig deep and find healing.Who Am I: Understanding Who You Are in ChristDiscover who you are and all that you can be!

He is bigger, grander, mightier, and more amazing that we could ever imagine. Spend 30 Days opening up the box. When you meet God for who He truly is, you will be truly changed!Christmas: It’s Jesus’ Birthday, Not YoursOur culture has made Christmas all about us. We think only of what we plan to buy others and what we hope others are planning to buy us. Yet, Christmas is Jesus’ birthday. Because of that, the question we must ask ourselves this holiday is, “What does Jesus want for His birthday?” Not sure? Grab hold of this devotional and spend the next 30 Days discovering the answers.

The Brave River by Steven C. Westfield

“Have you ever wanted to be a hero to someone?”In 2008, Steve Westfield walked away from his comfortable life in the suburbs, heading for the violence and chaos of the United States/Mexico border, not knowing what he would encounter when he got there. He was on a quest for modern-day heroism; what he found was so much more. But first, he had to lose everything. Easy to read, hard to put down, The Brave River is a collection of journal entries following the author week-by-week through his grueling transformation into a federal law enforcement agent, and then his life-shattering arrival on the border afterward. Interspersed throughout are honest, nothing-held-back reflections on courage, manhood, duty, love, marriage, fidelity and forgiveness—a confession of the innermost thoughts, fears, and faults in a Christian’s life, speaking to the hearts of men and women alike.Ride along, as he leaves a cushy big-city job to become a new recruit, struggling through the rigors of the U.S. Border Patrol Academy; and then graduates to a full-fledged journeyman Border Patrol Agent, working alone in one of the scariest places in North America—the treacherous backcountry along the Rio Grande in Texas. But also listen in, as this would-be adventure takes a wrong turn and threatens to tear him apart from his adorable wife Katy, the love of his life and girl of his dreams, causing his formerly perfect life to unravel around him. And then root for him, as he begs God to put the pieces back together again.The Brave River is a true account, both a tragedy and a triumph—a one of a kind love story; a candid look inside the doubts, fears, and hopes in the hearts of men; a tale of destruction, and God’s faithfulness to carry his children through to the end of the story.

Blunt’s Scriptural Coincidences: Gospels and Acts by John J Blunt

This book will confirm (or restore) your faith in the Gospel records. Clearly the Gospels were not invented. There is too much unintentional agreement between them for this to be so. Undesigned coincidences are where writers tell the same account, but from a different viewpoint. Without conspiring together to get their accounts in agreement, they include unexpected (and often unnoticed) details that corroborate their records. Not only are these unexpected coincidences found within the Gospels, but sometimes a historical writer unknowingly and unintentionally confirms the Bible record.Within these pages you will see just how accurate were the memories of the Gospel writers — even of the smallest details which on casual reading can seem of little importance, yet clearly point to eyewitness accounts. J.J. Blunt spent many years investigating these coincidences. And here they are, as found in the four Gospels and Acts.
