~ About the Growing With God series:
This series is based on John 15 and Matthew 13. God is the vinedresser, and we are the vines that He has planted. However if we do not stay “rooted in Him” then we will cease to grow. Jesus said, “if you abide in Me, and My Word abides in you….” His Word, however, cannot abide in us if the soil of our heart is hardened, it takes constant nurturing, tilling and weeding, if we want our hearts to remain good fertile ground that will bear fruit for the glory of God. Not only will this help us to bear much fruit, but we will also flourish like a Palm tree planted by God (Ps. 92:12-13; Ps. 1:3; and Jer. 17:8).
>> The 1st book in this series is called Growing In God's Word. This book is designed to help you make the most out of your quiet time with God. It includes a breakdown of the Bible, with a brief summary of each book, as well as other tidbits of information to help shed light on His Word as it becomes more personal in your life.
(This book can be purchased through Cypress Ministries at our online bookstore, or Amazon.)
God’s Word is the Living Word! There is a reason why He only had to write it one time-- because we as humans make the same mistakes all the time! Throughout generations we have repeatedly fallen down and turned away to make the same mistakes as our ancestors did. Our clothes have changed, our lifestyles have changed, and because of the Cross our “religious scarifies and duties” have changed. BUT God has not changed. His Word has not changed. The SAME principles He gave to His people before still apply to us today. We CAN very much take His Word (and the life lessons of His people) and live by it today.
One example of a “Timeless Nugget of Truth” I would like to give you, is found in 1 Kings 18. The Lord told Elijah that it was finally time to confront King Ahab. It was also time to make a stand and show that the God of Israel was going to make Himself known. One lone man stood against 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of Asherah! In verse 18, Elijah asked the people a question that we should ask ourselves today: “How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him” (NASB). You see, we often waver between following God and following the world. And this is wrong. Jesus said in Revelation 3: 15 “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth” (NASB).
