Kingdom Man - Member Book

Kingdom Man: Every Man's Destiny, Every Woman's Dream - Bible Study Book is a 6-session Bible study for men by Dr. Tony Evans. This study is designed to empower men to exercise the God-given dominion they were created for by giving them a Kingdom understanding, vision, and perspective on their identity and responsibilities along with practical steps on how to become a man who rules his world well.

The Bible clearly communicates that man was created to exercise dominion over the various areas of his life, taking responsibility for himself and others entrusted to his care. When a man functions within the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. This study challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God, learning to operate under the authority of Jesus Christ. Features: Six weekly group experiences for discussion, sharing, and viewing DVD sessions featuring author Tony Evans Individual study five days a week, including content to read and learning activities to help men apply the principles to their lives Examines what it means to be Kingdom man in the world today Motivates men to accept their roles and responsibilities as leaders in God's kingdom Shows men how to identify the spheres of influence that God has entrusted to them Suggests practical ways to advance God's kingdom at home, at church, and in the world Author: Dr. Tony Evans is a pastor, teacher, author, speaker, and one of the country's most respected leaders in evangelical circles. Through his local church, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, and national ministry, The Urban Alternative, Dr. Evans promotes a Kingdom agenda philosophy that teaches God's comprehensive rule over every sphere of life as demonstrated through the individual, family, church, and society.

Breathe: Making Room For Sabbath - Bible Study

product image
$10.99
The Breathe Study Journal includes 5 sessions of teaching by Priscilla Shirer with 4 weeks of homework in a reflective, journaling format. One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites' mindset. He didn't just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life. Week 1 - The Freedom of Sabbath Week 2 - Stops Along the Sabbath Journey Week 3 - Double-Portion Friday Week 4 - Coming Into Focus Week 5 - Sabbath Margin Features: Biblically-rooted and gospel-centered teaching Leader material (guides to questions and discussion with small group) 5-session Study Journal with group components, personal components, and leader helps Personal study segments include 4 weeks of homework in a study journal for reflection and to help the learner spend time alone with God and Scripture Benefits: Biblical truth that's reliable Can be used in a variety of ways and has a lot of flexibility. It can be used by a group of any size in a church or another setting, small group in a home, or a weekend away as an individual or with a small group of women. An opportunity to explore the concept of Sabbath in both the Old and New Testaments Great study for personal growth and reflection on an individual basis For the weary, worn out, and exhausted this study could be life-changing as they acknowledge their bondage to busyness and learn that Sabbath was created by God before the fall Sets boundaries for those who believe they must always be "doing" something for God

Following God Christian Living Series - The Ten Commandments

product image
$14.99
WHY DID GOD ISSUE LAWS THAT ARE SO DIFFICULT TO LIVE UP TO? Do you know anyone who has never broken any of the Then Commandments? Unless you are thinking of Jesus Christ, you probably can's name a person who has kept every one of these foundational laws. Why did God issue these laws for Israel and mankind if they are so difficult to live up to? What relevance do these laws etched upon ancient tablets have for us today? For Christians living under the security of God's grace, how does the seemingly rigid and arbitrary nature of the Ten Commandments apply? Author Rick Shepherd provides answers to these questions in the latest addition to the Following God(R) Christian Living Series: The Ten Commandments. The first lesson of this twelve-week interactive study provides a historical and cultural backdrop of the time the Commandments were issued. Each lesson following takes an in-depth look at each commandment and encourages readers and those involved in group study to look at the spirit and overarching purpose of each law rather than the arcane letter of each law. The final lesson looks intently at how Jesus is the culmination of the Ten Commandments, the only person capable of being obedient to all ten laws at all times. This final look at Christ's life will solidify the reader's views that a surrendered walk with the perfect Savior is the only way to fully understand the Ten Commandment's relevance to the twenty-first century. Readers will come to a refreshing understanding that the laws given to sinful man long ago are still relevant in that they point to the sinless perfection of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, our Savior who can live the spirit of these laws in us and through us.
