by Mark Chironna

Are you tired of the never-ending struggles Tired of grasping, clawing, plotting and striving to achieve your dreams Have you found your heart aching for something deeper and more enduring?Many believe that security, accomplishments, and possessions will give them identity. Yet the more you struggle for your identity, the more it eludes you. It isn't until you are free to let go of the grasping and the grabbing that you find out who you are. In this book, Mark Chironna shows letting go in action by putting you inside the skin of Jacob. Litterally a "grabber" from birth, Jacob emerged from the womb clutching the heel of his twin brother. For years this second son lived in his brother Esau's shadow, struggling to prove his way through life until an encounter with God showed him how to let go and find his destiny as a prince among men. "Let go of the lie that you can never lay hold of what your heart dreams of," says Chironna. "Reject the lie that everyone is out to deny you of your true-to-God existence. Let go of the belief that the struggle is with someone else; it is with yourself. Cheer up; you can, and you will let go, and your deepest longings will be deeply satisfied!"

You Can't Do EVERYthing ... So Do SOMEthing

by Shane Stanford

The real need for our world is not that we do EVERYONE'S part; just that we do OUR part. And with all of us working together, we will transform the world. Shane Stanford says: "On my office wall is a picture of a small child who lives in a remote village in sub-Saharan Africa. She is an orphan, having lost most of her family to the HIV/AIDS crisis. Each day, the little girl eats only half of her meager lunch. She takes the other half and puts it into her travel sack, so that she can take the leftovers to her dying aunt. The world might look at this child and assess that her little life has little to offer. But don't tell the child's aunt. Without this child's sacrifice and maturity, her aunt would have no food and would die. In spite of this child not being able to do much for her dying aunt, she does something, every day. The real need for our world is not that we do every part; it's that we just do our part. And working together to do that something God calls us to do--all of us working together--we will transform this world." Read an interview with Shane

You Don't Get Your Own Personal Jesus

by J. D. Greear

Jesus cannot be dismissed as one in a long line of religious gurus peddling peace, fulfillment, and a better version of yourself. You Don’t Get Your Own Personal Jesus, excerpted from J.D. Greear’s book Not God Enough, captures the liberating truth that God is exactly who he says he is. You may prefer a God who is small, safe, and domesticated, a God who thinks like you think and likes what you like. You may prefer a God you can manage, predict, and control. But what if this small version of God is holding you back from genuine, confident, world-transforming faith? God is not just a slightly better, slightly smarter version of you. He is infinite and glorious, and an encounter with him won’t just change the way you think about your faith. It will change your entire life.

You Don’t Have to Be Perfect to Follow Jesus: A 30-Day Devotional Journal

by Mike Yaconelli

Discipleship means being like the Big Twelve disciples, right? But when you read the Gospels and Acts, it’s clear the disciples weren’t always on top of things. In fact, the disciples were clueless, selfish, erratic, inconsistent, and faithless at least half the time. But Jesus loved them and used them all the more for it. Author Mike Yaconelli scrubs away centuries of sentimental buildup and shows there’s hope for us too. In this updated thirty-day devotional, you’ll experience thirty character traits that are marks of a disciple, from boldness to weakness to preparedness. Each reading includes an event from Scripture, a description of that day’s trait, first-person commentary, the obvious and not-so-obvious truth lesson, and questions and journaling space that invite you to ponder and write about your experience.
