Life Lessons For Every Believer: The Beatitudes for Today
John W. Brent Stancil
The Sermon on the Mount is the longest recorded sermon of our Lord in the Bible. The first few verses, commonly known as the Beatitudes, contain some very important principles that are applicable in the life of every Christian. This book is intended to help you understand in a more complete way what Christ wants to teach you in this passage. Perhaps the best self-help book available to anyone is contained in the fifth chapter of Matthew. Jesus is speaking directly to us, saying, “Here is how you should live. This is what you should do.” The greatest way to help yourself is to realize that you cannot help yourself; you need to allow Christ to work through you in order to be what God wants you to be. God has better plans for you than you have for yourself. When you let the Lord take the reins of your heart and lead your life, He will take you to places that you never dreamed or imagined. In these passages that we will be studying throughout this book, God is simply trying to get you to give Him control of your life. Your life will turn out much better with God in control than if you try to control everything yourself.
Real People, Real Problems, Real God
John W. Brent Stancil
The Bible is full of real people – not superhuman people, but real people and real problems. We also live in a world of real people and real problems. What people must realize is that without God, those real problems become overwhelming. With God, those problems become tools that He uses to make us more like Jesus. If we learn that we cannot avoid problems but instead learn to deal with them through God’s wisdom and power, we will learn the key to a successful life. These Bible characters teach us that life is full of problems, and how we choose to deal with them is critical to our success and joy in life. Read this book and it will be a help and an encouragement to you.
