God wants to use you to make an eternal difference in the lives of your friends.

And there’s no better time than now. After age nineteen, the chance of your friends coming to Christ drops to 6 percent. That’s right: 6 percent. That means if anyone is going to help them discover a real relationship with the God who loves them, it will probably need to be you. If you’re like many Christians, you really want to share your faith, but you don’t know how. Just the thought seems scary.

You don’t have to act weird or become someone you’re not. What’s so cool is that God wants to use you the way you are—your interests, your personality, your strengths, and even some of your weaknesses. You’ll be amazed at how these are the very things the Holy Spirit can use to help you confidently relate to your friends and introduce them to Jesus Christ.

Forget about long, boring lectures. These exciting sessions are full of video clips, lively discussions, role playing, and all kinds of opportunities to interact with your group. You won’t just get to know your group members better, you’ll get to know yourself better, too. You’ll find out which of the six evangelism styles fits you. You’ll learn how to share your faith in a natural, authentic way with other students who need God’s love and truth. And you’ll discover the unbeatable joy of seeing people you care about become real followers of Christ!

What does it look like when pastors cultivate a culture of generosity in
the church by actively teaching and mentoring people in the spiritual
act of giving? It’s generosity that’s contagious. A growing number of
leaders are beginning to discover that there are key factors that make
some churches thrive with abundant resources while others struggle with
shrinking budgets. Jim Sheppard and Chris Willard have spent years
consulting with church leaders across a broad spectrum of church
settings and have gathered their observations into this resource, part
of the Leadership Network Innovations Series. Contagious Generosity
highlights the best practices gleaned from real-life church leadership
situations and shows how church leaders can effectively cultivate a
culture of generous giving in the local church. It explains why some
churches are experiencing unexplainable ministry growth and
unprecedented church funding … even in the midst of tough economic
times.

God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it?

It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong.

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

Jesus
gave his followers a command: “Follow me.” And a promise: “And I will
equip you to find others to follow me.” We were made to make disciples.

Designed for use in discipleship relationships and other focused settings, Multiply will
equip you to carry out Jesus’s ministry. Each of the twenty-four
sessions in the book corresponds with an online video at
www.multiplymovement.com, where New York Times bestselling author David Platt joins Francis in guiding you through each part of Multiply.

One plus one plus one. Every copy of Multiply is
designed to do what Jesus did: make disciples who make disciples who
make disciples…. Until the world knows the truth of Jesus Christ.

God's Women of Yesterday Speak Boldly to God's Women of Today

The women of the Bible play an integral, essential, and crucial role in the eternal plan of God. From heaven's point of view, women are always unique, matchless, and irreplaceable-they are never to be found in a subservient ranking within the kingdom of God. As this study shows, these Women of the Bible (Book 1) demonstrates to us the lofty ideals of faith and faithfulness, virtues and values, brains and beauty, redemption and resourcefulness, servanthood and sacrifice.

Through a detailed study of each of these noteworthy women of the Bible, you will learn that God has called today's woman to play a significant role in society, in the home, and the church. You will learn from their mistakes and discover that the blessings of God are heaped upon the woman who faithfully trusts the Lord in all situations.

The Ten Commandments:  The Heart of God for Every Person & Every Relationship Life Principles for Following Christ Life Principles for Meeting with God:  How To Develop A Quiet Time

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?
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.

When we think of Jesus Christ, we conjure up different images. Sometimes we see Christ as a sacrificial lamb, while at other times we see him as the conquering King of kings, the great I AM! Sometimes, we see Jesus as the gentle master-teacher or Rabbi, while other images picture a warrior ready to do battle with His enemies. Life Principles for Following Christ looks at Christ in both the Old and New testament (paradoxes and all) and shows how Scriptures unveils a complete portrait of rare value, a picture of God Himself, revealing His holiness, His love, His power, and His awesome plans and purpose for man.

This latest installment in the Following God line of Bible studies can be seen as a collection of twelve portraits of Christ- portraits that reveal Jesus in His multifaceted Glory, view Him in His magnificent beauty, and allow us to experience Him in the magnitude of His Power. Each portrait expresses something unique about His person and His work. Each conveys an avenue of worship and surrender, a point of love and adoration, and a path of obedience to follow.

One of the greatest joys and comforts in a Christian's life comes through personal time spent with God. What an awesome privilege it is to meet with Him every day, to come confidently into His presence.

In Hebrews 10:19-22 we read, "Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,... let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water." Because of what Jesus did on the cross two thousands years ago, we need not approach God in fear and trembling, for our hearts are sprinkled clean and our bodies washed. The application is strong and unambiguous: "LET US DRAW NEAR!"

How to develop a Quiet Time is a forty-day journey of structured devotions, guided prayer, and personal application. Each week of the study centers on an important element to a personal relationship with God. Each day's adventure takes you to the Scriptures for guided self-discovery as it transitions you toward the daily habit of quietly meeting with God. This unique addition to the Following God Discipleship Series will serve as an excellent jumpstart to anyone who has ever struggled with the concept of a daily quiet time with God.
