Profoundly rooted in the Scriptures and first practiced centuries ago by the great teachers of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, the Jesus Prayer, with its many variations, is among the world's most ancient forms of devotion. But how does it apply to today's world? Why does it remain so popular among men and women, lay and religious, from all over the world and in every Christian religious tradition?With an eye toward the issues facing contemporary Christians, Father Wilfrid Stinissen shows readers the underlying reason why the Jesus Prayer continues to hold universal appeal for Orthodox and Catholics, Anglicans and Protestants, and all kinds of Christians of both Eastern and Western traditions -- it is a sign of hope in an age of anxiety, a beacon of light in a world of uncertainty. The prayer, in its simplicity and clarity, brings the new life granted by the Holy Spirit into vivid focus.Easily understood yet deeply profound, this book traces the evolution of the Jesus Prayer from its beginnings in the tradition of the Desert Fathers and the words of the Old and New Testaments through Christianity's expansion into the second millennium. In penetrating style, Father Stinissen demonstrates how the Jesus Prayer sums up the whole of the Gospel, bringing the body and the heart closer to Christ.

Often quoted by Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham and other great preachers, A. W. Tozer's words are being heard and read by millions today words like: "Origin is a creature word... All things have an origin. But when you come back to God, you come back to the One who has not origin. He is the Cause of all things, the uncaused Cause. God is Transcendent." "You'll never find Him on your own... He is far away in one sense, but in another He is as near as your heartbeat, for the cross has brdiged the gulf." "If there is anything God could learn, it would mean that God didn't know it before. If he didn't know it before, then He didn't know everything, He wouldn't be perfect, and if He isn't perfect then He isn't God." The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Avenue Road Church in Toronto, ON. Whether spoken or written, Tozer's words were designed to "promote personal heart religion" among God's people.

Desiring God

Meditations of a Christian Hedonist

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Calling on the Name of the Lord

View: 1601

"At that time people began to call upon the name of the LORD" (Genesis 4:26 ESV). From this first mention of prayer in the Bible, right through to the end, when the church prays "Come, Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20), prayer is intimately linked with the gospel—God's promised and provided solution to the problem of human rebellion against him and its consequences. After defining prayer simply as "calling on the name of the Lord," Gary Millar follows the contours of the Bible's teaching on prayer. His conviction is that even careful readers can often overlook significant material because it is deeply embedded in narrative or poetic passages where the main emphases lie elsewhere. Millar's initial focus is on how "calling on the name of the Lord" to deliver on his covenantal promises is the foundation for all that the Old Testament says about prayer. Moving to the New Testament, he shows how this is redefined by Jesus himself, and how, after his death and resurrection, the apostles understood "praying in the name of Jesus" to be the equivalent new covenant expression. Throughout the Bible, prayer is to be primarily understood as asking God to deliver on what he has already promised—as Calvin expressed it, "through the gospel our hearts are trained to call on God's name" (Institutes 3.20.1). This New Studies in Biblical Theology volume concludes his valuable study with an afterword offering pointers to application to the life of the church today. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
