Bonhoeffer says spiritual care is a function of the congregation and that it is an aspect of the broader, more encompassing activity of proclamation. In Spiritual Care, we are confronted with the awesome truth that in speech God's presence is known and that speech is also our own; in silence God's presence is known and that silence is also our own. The text demands us to consider how the gospel message is brought to people in the midst of their personal lives, and his message and counsel use the tools given within the traditional life of the church so that such grace becomes enacted, enfleshed, and incarnate in the Christian community.

If you could bring life to someone who was dead or dying, would you? There are many books that explain "how" to share faith and other books tell us "what" to share with people--but few books explore the "why." What the church needs is a compelling "why" to get out of their comfort zone and change the world with the gospel. The church, for centuries, has used Matthew 28:19-20, "Go and make disciples...baptize...and teach..." as the clarion call of the church to tell the world about Jesus. "Christians, as a community, seem not to know the 'why' of evangelism. They see evangelism as just digging another hole. They are not told that each thrust of the shovel digs deeper into a ground soaked with an eternal water; an eternal well-spring of true life for the non-believer and a virtual fountain of youth for the believer who shares his faith. The purpose of this book is to show that there is an inescapable connection between those who share their faith and those who experience complete joy. Spiritual CPR will help Christians realize that the sharing of their faith produces a spiritually abundant life.

Steps to Peace with God Pack of 25

$2.99
$0.25 - $2.99

STEPS TO PEACE WITH GOD

Most people have an idea of what they believe it will take to be accepted by God. After all, who likes the idea of leaving this life without being on good terms with him? Thankfully, it's possible to be certain that you've made peace with God, but the way must be chosen during this life. Here are the steps drawn from God's book, the Bible:

1 UNDERSTAND GOD'S PURPOSES-- PEACE AND ETERNAL LIFE

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal, fulfilling life.

The Bible says:

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)

Why don't most people have this peace and the fulfilling (abundant) life that God intended for us to have?

2 ADMIT THE PROBLEM-- OUR SIN AND SEPARATION

God did not create us like robots to automatically love and mechanically obey him. God gave us a will and the freedom to choose. The first man and woman chose to disobey God and go their own willful way. And we still make that choice today. This results in separation from God.

The Bible says:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

For the wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)

People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.

The Bible says:

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. (Proverbs 14:12)

Your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God. (Isaiah 59:2)

No bridge reaches God . . . except one.

3 DISCOVER GOD'S BRIDGE-- THE CROSS

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. Though he was God's sinless Son, he became a human, took our place, and paid the penalty for our sin, bridging the gap between God and us.

The Bible says:

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)

Christ . . . suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God. (1 Peter 3:18)

God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. . . . The free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 5:8; 6:23)

Christ died for our sins . . . he was buried . . . he was raised on the third day. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

God has provided the only way to forgiveness of sin and eternal life. But each person must make a choice.

4 EMBRACE THE TRUTH-- RECEIVE CHRIST

We must trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and receive him by personal choice.

Jesus says:

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20)

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)

The Bible says:

To all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12)

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life. (John 3:36)

WHAT IS YOUR DECISION?

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now and trust in him alone for forgiveness and eternal life? The Bible says that's the only way to find peace with God!

- Admit your need--that you are a sinner in need of God's forgiveness.

- Be willing to turn from trusting in anything else for eternal life and trust only in Christ.

- Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross, came back to life from the grave, and is your only way to heaven.

- Receive Jesus's offer to forgive your sins and come into your life as your Savior.

You may want to tell him in words like these:

Dear Jesus, thank you for making it possible for me to find peace with God! I believe that when you died you were paying the penalty for my sins. I now receive you into my life as my Savior, so I can have forgiveness and never-ending life from God! Thank you for the gift of eternal life!

Steps to Peace with God Spanish Edition Pack of 25

$2.99

La mayoria de las personas tienen una idea de lo que ellos creen que necesitan para ser aceptados por Dios. Despues de todo, a quien le atrae la idea de salir de esta vida sin estar bien relacionado con Dios? Afortunadamente, es posible tener la certeza de estar en paz con Dios, pero la decision tiene que tomarse durante esta vida. Aqui hay algunos pasos tomados del libro de Dios, la Biblia:

1 ENTIENDE LOS PROPOSITOS DE DIOS-- PAZ Y VIDA ETERNA

La Biblia dice:

Por tanto, habiendo sido justificados por la fe, tenemos paz para con Dios por medio de nuestro Senor Jesucristo. (Romanos 5:1)

Porque de tal manera amo Dios al mundo, que dio a su Hijo unigenito, para que todo aquel que cree en El, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna. (Juan 3:16)

Yo he venido para que tengan vida, y para que la tengan en abundancia. (Juan 10:10)

2 ADMITE EL PROBLEMA--NUESTRO PECADO Y SEPARACION

Dios no nos creo como robots para que automaticamente le amaramos y obedecieramos. Dios nos dio libre albedrio y la libertad de elegir. El primer hombre y la primera mujer decidieron desobedecer a Dios y hacer su propia voluntad. Y hasta el dia de hoy todavia nosotros tomamos la misma decision. Esto resulta en la separacion de Dios.

La Biblia dice:

Por cuanto todos pecaron y no alcanzan la gloria de Dios.(Romanos 3:23)

Porque la paga del pecado es muerte. (Romanos 6:23)

La Biblia dice:

Hay camino que al hombre le parece derecho, pero al final, es camino de muerte. (Proverbios 14:12)

Pero vuestras iniquidades han hecho separacion entre vosotros y vuestro Dios. (Isaias 59:2)

3 DESCUBRE EL PUENTE QUE DIOS HA PUESTO--LA CRUZ

Jesucristo murio en la cruz y resucito de la tumba. Aunque era el Hijo de Dios y sin pecado alguno, se convirtio en humano, tomo nuestro lugar y pago la penalidad de nuestros pecados, tendiendo asi un puente entre Dios y nosotros.

La Biblia dice:

Porque hay un solo Dios, y tambien un solo mediador entre Dios y los hombres, Cristo Jesus hombre. (1 Timoteo 2:5)

Cristo murio por los pecados una sola vez, el justo por los injustos, para llevarnos a Dios. (1 Pedro 3:18)

Pero Dios demuestra su amor para con nosotros, en que siendo aun pecadores, Cristo murio por nosotros . . . pero la dadiva de Dios es vida eterna en Cristo Jesus Senor nuestro. (Romanos 5:8; 6:23)

Cristo murio por nuestros pecados . . . fue sepultado . . . resucito al tercer dia. (1 Corintios 15:3-4)

Dios te ama y desea que tu experimentes la paz y una vida gratificante y eterna.

La gente ha intentado utilizar muchas maneras de salvar esta brecha entre ellos y Dios.

Dios ha provisto el unico camino para obtener el perdon de los pecados y la vida eterna. Pero cada persona debe de tomar una decision.

Por que es que la mayoria de la gente no tiene esta paz y la vida gratificante (abundante) las cuales Dios dispuso que tuvieramos?

Ningun puente alcanza a Dios . . . excepto uno.

4 ACEPTA LA VERDAD -- RECIBE A CRISTO

Debemos de confiar en Jesucristo como nuestro Salvador y recibirle con una decision personal.

Jesus dice:

He aqui, yo estoy a la puerta y llamo; si alguno oye mi voz y abre la puerta, entrare a el, y cenare con el y el conmigo. (Apocalipsis 3:20)

Jesus le dijo: Yo soy el camino, y la verdad, y la vida; nadie viene al Padre sino por mi. (Juan 14:6)

La Biblia dice:

Pero a todos los que le recibieron, les dio el derecho de llegar a ser hijos de Dios, es decir, a los que creen en su nombre. (Juan 1:12)

El que cree en el Hijo tiene vida eterna. (Juan 3:36)

CUAL ES TU DECISION?

Recibiras a Jesucristo ahora mismo y confiaras en el solamente para el perdon de tus pecados y para tener vida eterna? ¡La Biblia dice que esa es la unica manera para obtener paz con Dios!

  • Admite tu necesidad-- que eres pecador y necesitas el perdon de Dios.
  • Esta dispuesto a dejar de confiar en cualquier otra cosa para obtener vida eterna y a confiar solamente en Cristo.
  • Cree que Jesucristo murio por ti en la cruz, resucito de la muerte y es el unico camino al cielo.
  • Acepta la oferta de Jesus para perdonarte tus pecados y llegar a tu vida como tu Salvador.
  • Quiza quieras decirle unas palabras como las siguientes:

    Querido Jesus, ¡gracias por hacer posible que yo encontrara la paz con Dios! Creo que cuando moriste pagaste la penalidad de mis pecados. ¡Ahora te recibo en mi vida como mi Salvador, para asi tener el perdon y la vida eternal con Dios! ¡Gracias por el regalo de la vida eterna!

    In this book Addison Hodges Hart articulates some crucial questions for contemporary Christians: What sort of church must we become in today's post-Christendom world, where we can no longer count on society to support Christian ideals? What can we salvage from our Christendom past that is of real value, and what can we properly leave behind? How do we become -strangers and pilgrims- once more, after being -at home- in Christendom for so long?
    Summoning readers to wise and faithful discipleship in our post-Christendom age, Hart suggests both how Christ's disciples can say -yes- to much that was preserved during the age of Christendom and why they should say -no- to some of the cherished accretions of that passing epoch.

    The author of the bestselling celebration of discipline explores the great traditions of Christian spirituality and their role in spiritual renewal today.

    In this landmark work, Foster examines the "streams of living water" -- the six dimensions of faith and practice that define Christian tradition. He lifts up the enduring character of each tradition and shows how a variety of practices, from individual study and retreat to disciplines of service and community, are all essential elements of growth and maturity. Foster examines the unique contributions of each of these traditions and offers as examples the inspiring stories of faithful people whose lives defined each of these "streams."
