In our society it is easy for Christians to become so caught up in our own responsibilities and schedules that we fail to recognize the many opportunities God places in our lives. There are a variety of people that cross our paths every day with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Some may be passing through our lives for the first, and maybe the last, time. Others may be in our lives for just a short time. Those who are in our inner circle of friends and family will be with us for the majority of our lives. Whoever these people are, God has placed them in our lives for a purpose. We have the privilege - if we choose to accept this mission - of sharing the love, grace and mercy of God with them. When we look at those around us in the way in which God sees them, we are compelled to reach out to them. Knowing that each day we live on this earth is ordained by God should give us the motivation to use every opportunity to serve the Lord and bring glory to Him. It should give us a reason to invest in the lives of others as we learn of their special needs which God has gifted us to meet. In so doing we can be part of the exciting ministry of developing God’s Oaks of Righteousness. God’s Oaks of Righteousness was written to challenge and motivate Christians to recognize opportunities to minister in our world. Everyone has a place in which they have been gifted to serve, whether as a large group leader with a vivacious personality; as a quiet, caring person working one-on-one praying for God’s intervention in the lives of others; as one willingly giving time and energy to supply for the needs they recognize; or somewhere in-between. God’s Oaks of Righteousness was written to reinforce the concept that we are working together as one united body of Christ. We each have our own area of ministry and spiritual gifts to use for Him. As a team we rejoice together and give God the glory for the spiritual maturity developed in others. We rejoice in their strength to stand firm and live a life honoring God because of their personal relationship with Christ and the Holy Spirit working in and through them.

Consider it pure joy! Though hundreds of women gather weekly to hear Margo Fieseler teach them how to love and live God’s Word, the details of her life before Christ are largely unknown.

But, there was life before Jesus. In this life-story devotional learn how salvation radically changed one woman’s life, healed a marriage and family, and restored a soul as only God can do. In addition to an authentic and vulnerable narrative, you’ll be able to study the Bible’s application in your own life through devotions and journaling. Discover the key to walking victoriously, rather than in woundedness. God isn’t done with Margo and He’s not done with you. Nourish an unwavering faith as you learn to “do the next right thing” in your walk with God.

Whatever your circumstances are, wherever you find yourself in this life, don't ever think that your Father in heaven has shortchanged you. You have been created in His image and He has thoughtfully and purposely deposited in your heart the talents for true greatness in this life and the life to come. Decide today, that this day, you will do something out of pure kindness for someone else without seeking any reward. Seeds of Greatness will open the door of our heart to the gifts and abilities that God planted when He formed you in your mothers' wombs. It will further define what greatness truly is-and it isn't spiking a football in the end zone and then signing the goal post with a marker. Author Peter Zindler offers heartwarming examples of the greatness of God in an ordinary man's life, a man who has dared to go against the world's opinion and will follow God wherever He leads him. As you read Seeds of Greatness, you'll step into a corridor of truth that promises to take you to a new level!

For many of us, the attempt to live for God can leave us feeling burdened rather than free. Yet that's not the kind of life God intends for us to experience. What if he never meant for us to try so hard? What if overcoming sin doesn't rely on our own self-control? What if loving others isn't about saying and doing all the right things? What if suffering isn't designed to teach us lessons? What if we could feel closer to God without doing anything? In God's Best-Kept Secret, the founder of Grace Life International explodes our preconceived notions of living the Christian life, freeing us to stop just going through the motions and to experience true fulfillment. Illuminating commonly misunderstood Bible verses, Mark Maulding shows us that following God is not as complicated as we often make it out to be. And, in fact, the answer to our struggles has been hiding in plain sight all along.
