Object Lessons for Christmas (Object Lessons for Children)

Verna Kokmeyer

Christmas is not all about Santa, decorating a pretty tree, or getting every gift you want. Christmas Object Lessons will help children learn and remember the real reason for celebration. Little lamb illustrations will grab a kid’s attention, while unforgettable lessons move the focus from simple Christmas objects every child recognizes, to memorable, biblically sound lessons about God.

Lessons have possible memory verses bolded within the quoted verses, and each includes a simple activity to keep children involved and make the application stick.

Christmas Object Lessons is a fun, easy-to-use, kid-focused book, meant to provide families, teachers, and leaders of children ages 6-12 a tool to keep Jesus the center of holiday festivities. Kids and adults are reminded the baby Jesus is also our Lord and Savior.

This book is ideal for family devotions, home school and Bible school classes, youth programs, and kid’s worship services. Relevant ideas can easily be implemented in sessions for youth and adults.

Building a Christ Centered Marriage: 7 Keys for Keeping Jesus at the Center of your Relationship (Spiritual Growth by John Stange Book 2)

Building a Christ Centered Marriage: 7 Keys for Keeping Jesus at the Center of your Relationship (Spiritual Growth by John Stange Book 2)

John Stange

“Wish I had read this earlier in marriage!” -J.G. Smid

Apart from the decision to follow Jesus, there is no greater decision a person makes than the choice to marry someone. For some people, marriage is a joyful experience – filled with delight. For others, married life is a daily struggle – filled with disappointments and disagreements.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is filled with good news for your marriage. As we meditate more and more on the nature of Christ’s Gospel and its application to our daily lives, we begin to see that He has called us to apply His Gospel to every area of our lives, particularly our marriages.

When we center our marriages on Jesus, we begin to better understand how to react and respond to the common sources of stress and disagreement that all married couples face. What does His Gospel say about love, commitment, communication, and mutual submission? How does the Gospel apply to how we handle our household finances?

In this brief book, we’ll take a look at each of these areas and we’ll also examine the very foundation Jesus has called us to build our marriages upon.

Prepare to be encouraged and refreshed.

Comfort the Grieving: Ministering God's Grace in Times of Loss (Practical Shepherding Series)

Comfort the Grieving: Ministering God’s Grace in Times of Loss (Practical Shepherding Series)

Paul Tautges

Until the end of time, when the curse of sin is finally removed, suffering will be a large part of the human experience and a large part of that suffering will be walking through the painful reality of death. ‘Death,’ writes Paul Tautges, ‘provides a natural opportunity not only for ministry to others, but also for personal growth in ministers.’ Those who shepherd others through the pain and loss that accompanies death should seek to offer wise and biblical counsel on these precious and painful occasions.

This book is a treasure chest of pastoral theology that will equip you to reach out to those who grieve with the Christ-centered comfort of God rooted in the gospel. The theological foundation espoused here, as well as the numerous practical helps that are included, will help any servant of the Lord to point the hearts and minds of the bereaved to the ‘man of sorrows’ who is ‘acquainted with grief’ (Isaiah 53:3).

The Practical Shepherding series of booklets provides pastors and ministry leaders with advice and practical help to do the work of pastoral ministry in a local church. In Comfort Those Who Grieve, experienced pastor Paul Tautges offers readers a guide to comforting those dealing with death through the hope of the gospel.

Jesus Unmasked: The Truth Will Shock You

Jesus Unmasked: The Truth Will Shock You

Todd Friel

Jesus Christ is the most famous man in human history, but exactly who was He? Some say a fable; others think just one option among many good teachers, or even a nice guy who taught morals. Do any of these descriptions capture the totality of who He was? Jesus Unmasked goes directly to the world’s greatest expert on Jesus Christ, Jesus Himself:

– Who Jesus said He was and why He said it the way He did
– What historical accounts and Biblical details reveal versus what we assume
– Why 4000 years of history, prophecy and chronology force every human being to render their verdict about this one man.

When you encounter Jesus Unmasked, you will not be ambivalent. Jesus gives us clarity and insight into the nature of God. Interact with what Jesus taught about Himself and draw your own conclusions to the world’s most important question: “Who is the real Jesus?”

Humility: True Greatness

Humility: True Greatness

C.J. Mahaney

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” —1 Peter 5:5

A battle rages within every one of us every day. It’s the clash between our sense of stubborn self-sufficiency and God’s call to recognize that we’re really nothing without Him. It’s pride versus humility. And it’s a fight we can’t win without looking repeatedly to Christ and the cross. C. J. Mahaney raises a battle cry to daily, diligently, and deliberately weaken our greatest enemy (pride) and cultivate our greatest friend (humility). His thorough examination clarifies misconceptions, revealing the truth about why God detests pride and turns His active attention to the humble. Because pride is never passive, defeating it demands an intentional attack. The blessing that follows is God’s abundant favor.

“This is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit.”
—Isaiah 66:2, ESV

God clearly states that He is drawn to the humble. He’s also clear that He opposes the proud. These two, humility and pride, cannot coexist. Where one is fostered, the other is defeated. Which will you pursue? When you acknowledge the deception of pride and intentionally humble yourself, you become free to savor abundant mercies and unlikely graces. You will find a new life is yours—a life God richly favors. A God-glorifying life you don’t want to miss.

Reclaiming Love: Radical Relationships in a Complex World

Reclaiming Love: Radical Relationships in a Complex World

Ajith Fernando

In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul places love at the very center of what it means to embrace life in Christ. All other spiritual gifts are worth nothing in comparison. But the love explained in those verses is nothing short of radical.

Fernando’s pastoral work—in the midst of the cultural and ethnic tensions of Sri Lanka—often brought up a very real and honest question: “Can the biblical teaching about love actually be practiced?” The answer he discovered is a resounding “yes.” The radical love of God is not only real, but it is the key to experiencing joy in the pain and suffering of this world.

Believers must look to the Scriptures for God’s teaching on the true nature of love, its divine origins, and its power for those who trust in Christ. This book offers reflections on the Bible’s consistent teaching on love and shares real-life experiences of learning to love in difficult situations.
