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.

If the tax laws in the USA did not allow a deduction for charitable giving, some of these folks might give nothing away except what they are forced to surrender to the taxman. Some die still trying to accumulate even more wealth.

This book makes the argument that humankind was placed here on earth to multiply, fill the world and take dominion over all of Gods other creations. A purpose driven life will necessarily align with these purposes. A purpose driven life is one that is fulfilling Gods purposes. How well we do this is the primary reason why some people have become very successful while others have failed. Our spiritual side reflects our God connections and for the Christian it begins when one is born again. While our purposes and the things that drive us may need adjustment after we are born again, they do not change significantly. They all have one common denominator and that is fulfilling our responsibilities as parents and doing that in obedience to God. With this in mind, it should not be difficult to answer the question what on earth am I doing here? What drives our lives? It is the need to provide for our children, for adulthood comes with the obligation to find a life partner and begin multiplying and this is universal.

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...

Imagine being shipwrecked on a deserted island, wandering around for years without ever inspecting the weather-beaten treasure chest aboard the ship. The chest contains a compass, map, mirror, silver and gold, and precious gems of every kind imaginable. Although you're regularly in the vicinity of the chest, you never take the time to discover what is inside. That's what happens in many of our lives. We live our lives on auto-pilot, never taking the time within explore the precious cargo God has buried to each of us. Consequently, our dreams go unrealized and we never manifest our God-given potential. Manifesting Our God-given Treasures: The Stewardship of Life is a must-read for people interested in discovering the valuable treasure they have within. Author Rebecca McClain gives meaning to the sometimes-painful process God takes us through to discover our gifts and talents and realize our potential. She explains the importance of mentoring relationships to help us reach new levels. You will get an understanding of how to use the keys of faith, hope and expectation to unlock your dreams and hidden potential. We are all divinely unique and were created to make an impact in the world in some capacity. In fact, we have a responsibility to do no less. It is a matter of stewardship.
