Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts with Bonus Content [Kindle Edition] by Jerry Bridges

In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Navigator author Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on God’s sovereignty. The revelations changed his life.

In Trusting God, he shares the scope of God’s power to help you come to know Him better, have a relationship with Him, and trust Him more—even when unjust things happen. Tragedy, grief, loss, and death are part of life. Discover how Trusting God can reveal biblical truths about God.

Includes bonus chapter taken from More Than Ordinary by Doug Sherman.

Trusting God is a very good book one of the best I’ve read over the past few years.

 

God’s Love: How the Infinite God Cares for His Children [Kindle Edition]

An in-depth look at a God who not only loves, but is love.
 
Love has come to mean many things. It’s used to describe emotions. It’s the glue for relationships. It frames countless stories.
And the greatest of these stories opens before time began and echoes throughout eternity. It’s the story of God’s unrelenting, overwhelming love for His people. Yet the truth of love is even more majestic, more staggering, and more extraordinary than we can understand: God doesn’t just love us. He is love.

Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul takes a remarkable look at this most profound truth. God’s Love delves deep into Scripture to explore this dynamic attribute of God, which finds its ultimate expression in His Son. Dr. Sproul also examines seeming paradoxes of God, such as a loving God and divine hate, and how love coexists with His sovereignty. Practical, insightful, and revolutionary, God’s Love compels and calls us to reflect His nature of unconditional love.

Koinonia – Fellowship

True Community: The Biblical Practice of Koinonia [Kindle Edition] – by Jerry Bridges – Free for a limited time

This is fellowship: sharing with one another what God is teaching through the Scriptures, and this is an important part of true community.   …

Because we are partners in the gospel, we need to share with one another, realizing that we are not owners but only stewards of the possessions God has entrusted (not given, but entrusted) to us.  …

we cannot have meaningful fellowship with one another unless we are individually experiencing vital fellowship with God.

Those quotes from True Community  highlight the importance of fellowship and how it is much, much more than eating a meal with other believers.  If you are eating a meal together and discussing the latest football game it is not fellowship and should not be called such.  Fellowship is sharing with other believers our life in Christ, sharing what we are learning and working together to glorify God.  If we are not fellowshipping with the Lord in the Word, prayer and worship on our own, we cannot have meaningful fellowship with other believers.

True Community: The Biblical Practice of Koinonia

True Community: The Biblical Practice of Koinonia [Kindle Edition] – by Jerry Bridges – Free for a limited time

Fellowship among believers is more than just talking over coffee after church service. Biblical fellowship in New Testament times—or koinonia—had rich and varied meanings, including covenant relationship, partnership in the gospel, communion with God and others, and the sharing of earthly possessions.

In True Community, best-selling author Jerry Bridges guides you through koinonia and its implications for today’s church. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book will help you dig deeper into what Christian community in the twenty-first century should look like. You will come away with a new appreciation for fellowship, the church, and what God intended the body of Christ to be.

Trusting God is a Matter of the Will

Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts (Gerald Bridges and Jerry Bridges)

… trusting God is first of all a matter of the will  and is not dependent on my feelings. I choose to trust God, and  my feelings eventually follow.
Having said that trusting God is first of all a matter of the  will, let me qualify that statement to say that, first of all, it is a  matter of knowledge. We must know that God is sovereign, wise,  and loving in all the ways we have come to see what those  terms mean in previous chapters. But having been exposed to  the knowledge of the truth, we must then choose whether to  believe the truth about God, which He has revealed to us, or  whether to follow our feelings. If we are to trust God, we must  choose to believe His truth.

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God’s Unfailing Love

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God’s Unfailing Love by Jerry Bridges

The freedom in falling short of God’s standard relies on His gift of grace. Unfortunately, too many of us forget the free offer. We spend our lives basing our relationship with God on our performance rather than on Him. We see our identity as never being worthy of His love.

Isn’t it time to stop trying to measure up and begin accepting the transforming power of God’s grace?

The product of more than 10 years of Bible study, Navigator author Jerry Bridges’ Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is.

Accepted on Your Own Worth?

Are you accepted on your own worth?

Have you done all you needed to make yourself acceptable to God?

Hate to break the news but that is impossible.

We can never do enough, clean up enough or be holy enough for an infinitely Holy God.

Thank goodness we don’t have to.

We can begin each day with the deeply encouraging realization,

I’m accepted by God,

not on the basis of my personal performance,

but on the basis of the infinitely perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ.
