We all know that everything we have is a gift from God. But some-times it’s hard to know just how to give back to God. How much is enough? What does the Bible really say? What should giving look like in our everyday lives? Filled with good news for followers of Jesus, Giving to God shows Christians the way to a better life and a better relationship both with their money and with God. Popular author and Bible scholar Mark Allan Powell presents stewardship as an act of worship, an expression of faith, and a discipline for spiritual growth. Faithful use of our time, talents, and treasures starts with a deep, satisfying relationship with the God to whom we belong. We can then learn, says Powell, to give gladly and generously out of our heartfelt connection with God. In the second half of Giving to God Powell applies these principles to today’s complicated world. After providing answers to practical questions about living and giving, Powell lays out a specific plan that Christians will be able to embrace as both a duty and a delight.

This is a one of a kind book because it not only deals with Spiritual gifts, but Natural gifts as well as talents and abilities within man. In short, "all kinds of gifts!" Book teaches us how to discover these gifts, access them, develop and utilize them for the greater use. It teaches us how to discover our children's gifts and abilities and how to avoid the gift killer. It also teaches that your success may just be in you. Author teaches that everyone is wired in a certain way to fill only a certain type of shoe. He teaches that the discovery of our unique formation results in the discovery or our life vocation. Author teaches that to access the spiritual gifts, one has to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Book is not only a great read, but a success tool in life's disappointing reality.

Many Christians are either confused or deceived about the subject of giving. This book takes a look at the Bibical view of giving to the church.
Meaning; that our fruit should become like that of the Spirit of God, and no longer of the soulish nature of the flesh! If we are not pursuing God, then we are not doing what He's given us to do as believers. Which is using our talents; ...

For many years the church has prayed for revival to come, never knowing or understanding how God might answer that prayer. Today, we are witnessing the greatest shaking that we have ever known, and on a world wide scale. As financial institutions become bankrupt, and many lose jobs, land, and homes, the awakening that we once prayed for has come! Everything that can be shaken is, and this scenario is causing even the weakest links within the soul of man to rise up, as God becomes our only hope. But what will become of it all, and how will we survive? Where God's People are Going is like an oracle from the Lord. He tells us in His word that My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27 Until we come to know the Lord's voice, our relationship, and our knowledge of Him is vague at best. The life giving messages in this book are just that, messages that bring life to dark situations, and answers to life's questions about today, and what is yet to come. My questions to the Lord often reflect the times in which we live as I ask the simple question, why?

Grief and pain is the root source of all that hurts us in life - the ill that is our fraility as mortal beings. This is disease and sickness in our lives: spiritual, social, physical, emotional. Christ in us is the root of all that is good in us; all that is God-given, and that enables us to live and grow through life in a healthy way to a healthy end. The good that is our soul, that we can nurture to maintain God’s energizing power within ourselves to create the balance to be healthy. God gave us his Son so we could learn this - through His life and death. In Christ we have the means for health and wellness throughout the seasons of our lives - that transcends all understanding. The Bible gives it all to us: the Creation, our corruption, the rules and regulations for a healthy, balanced life; what happens to us when we are good; what happens when we are bad. The Old Testament tells us of God’s character and expectations of us; His requirements, His disappointments, His punishments; His presence; His Being in our lives; His hopes. He also gives us the ‘how to do it’. Still, in our human fraility we fail to find, or fall short all the time, of arriving at, His Promised Land. In large part because our earthly self denies ourselves the power God has given us - to operate, live and ultimately die according to His dictum - because we cannot place faith in the intangible. So, God, in His love and compassion for us, and to remain our strict but kind, Father in Heaven, sent us His Son to show us how to be human in the sight of God. In Christ He gave us the gift of how to achieve the health and wellness that God intends us to enjoy...
