Freebie! On a Monday? (Cause it is not Friday!)

I found this really great free resource, online today. It is a free book!

“Why do so many young adults (18 to 22) leave the church, and what will it take to bring them back? This important question is examined and duly answered in Essential Church? : reclaiming a generation of dropouts , a follow-up to Thom S. Rainer’s best-selling Simple Church co-written this time with his son, research expert Sam Rainer.”

And the download link is here!

I am excited about reading this book. I just finished UnChristian and think this will carry a similar theme.

Freebie Friday: Imagining a Perfect Earth

Have you ever took time to just picture the narratives you read about in the Bible in real life….and dreamed that you were in the settings. I have, maybe you could say I’ve watched WAY too many Veggie Tale videos. But I’ve always been somewhat of a dreamer.

Recently I’ve tried to picture what it would be like to be Adam (or Eve). I’ve wonder what was on the other trees.
I took a walk with God and talked to him one-on-one! Wow. No sin to drag us down. No sin distancing me and my maker. Amazing!
Hanging out with all the animals God created, just being content and in love with God and Eve, What a dream! Can you picture that?
That would be sweet.

Now for fun, I throw in a Veggie Tale video clip:

Freebie Friday: A Pic of Heaven


I am sure you have heard pastors or preachers talking about heaven…you get a picture of halos and clouds and harps circled around the throne of God where everything in heaven, is simply worshiping God forever …is ths the correct picture of hat Heaven will be like?… No WAY!

It will be more like a rebirth. It will be back on the new earth, but this time as God intended it.
It will be perfect and mind blowing.

This is the stuff that should motivate us to share our faith!
This is the truth that should set our thinking correctly.
We need to realize that our fallen sinful bodies are not permanent, the God has new bodies waiting for us in new Kingdom in Heaven.
