We want a faith that's deep - but also a life that works.How do we get a life beyond the quiet time? In REAL GOD, REAL LIFE popular speaker Jo Saxton shows us how we can follow in Paul's footsteps and 'train ourselves to be godly'.Full of practical ideas and anecdotes, this is spiritual formation for everyone.

You’ve already been set free by Christ. When are you going to start experiencing that freedom? What does it look like when a man lives out a truly authentic, loving walk with Jesus Christ? It looks like freedom. The Apostle Paul, a man made new by the gospel of Jesus Christ, presents one of the clearest images of the godly man in action. He’s committed to a life of faith, focused on the Spirit instead of the flesh, set free to love others. No longer focused on himself, he demonstrates his faith by serving others. You can be that kind of man by claiming your freedom in Christ. Being God’s man means being set free to exemplify Christ’s love. Being God’s Man by Claiming Your Freedom will stimulate personal reflection and honest dialogue with God and other men. The goal is that you will strive to be God’s man in every way–feeling his heart for others, and doing his will obediently and joyfully. Special Features: ·Practical studies–for individual use or group settings–facilitate personal encounters with God and other men ·Questions encourage genuine reflection and help build godly convictions ·“Real Life” case studies show how the truths you discover have worked out in other men’s lives ·“Standing Strong” section gives you the opportunity to identify action steps for lasting change.

God still walks the earth, but these days he does it through his people. Far from an impersonal institution or a closed religious club, the church is really a life-giving spiritual community, the place where God touches humanity through those who follow him. It’s where God’s stories are told and taught, where hope is lived out, where people are reconciled, and where God is encountered. Join in this conversation about the real life of faith, the spiritual journey that is shared with others who hunger for God. The life of faith is a team sport, with God’s people gathering to hear his voice and then going out to do the work of his kingdom on earth. If you’re curious about how God shows up on earth today, then you’re ready for honest dialogue about the real life of faith. It’s time to take a new look at God on Earth.

A Place of Total Protection in Life’s Storms Did you know there is a place in God--a secret place--for those who want to seek refuge? It is a haven of physical safety and security that God tells us about in the 91st Psalm, the one place in the Bible where all of the protection promises of God are brought together. In Psalm 91, Peggy Joyce Ruth, a veteran Bible teacher, guides you through a personal study of this psalm, explaining verse by verse God’s promises of protection. Along the way you will find hope and encouragement in the stories of people from all walks of life who have found refuge in this covenant promise from God.
What if it was truly understood that individuals can have real encounters with the Divine, even in this modern world? What might happen to our collective worldview if we suddenly realized that, in truth, there is a caring God very much concerned about each and every one of us? Kevin J. Todeschi shares personal accounts from people of all ages, races, and religions who have one thing in common: an experience with the Divine. Also included are historical examples found in the lives of such individuals as Padre Pio, Vivekananda, and Irina Tweedie. All of their stories suggest that the time has come for our 21st century world to acknowledge that there is much more to us than a simple physical body. Perhaps the time has come to acknowledge that we are never really alone.
