True champions are made, not born. God builds champions and He wants to build you into the champion you were meant to be. Success is defined in today s culture mostly by monetary wealth. Leaders are defined by leading. But champions are in a class by themselves. They are not defined by money or followers, but by how they live and influence people in ways that glorify God and encourage and inspire others. Examining the lives of biblical and modern-day champions gives you the keys to becoming a champion through developing: · Stamina during challenges. · Winning character traits. · Integrity and trustworthiness. · Leadership qualities. · Solid moral values. Author and pastor Kenneth Ulmer offers guidance and advice in a world increasingly bereft of true champions. You will learn how to stay on track to becoming a true champion God s way, and not be tripped up as many self-described Christian leaders have been in recent years. Choose today to be a champion!

If you're just starting out on a shepherding trajectory, Gut-Level Godliness can bring realistic clarity to the demands of your calling. If you're still in training, it can bring into vital focus the diverse elements of your education. If you're already in the trenches, it can offer you a vocational check-up and keep you from losing sight of the Chief Shepherd's priorities for you and the sheep He's entrusted to your care. Whatever the stage of your shepherding career, it will impress you with the tremendous responsibility you have to exude the aroma of authenticity. It will take you into the heart and life of a shepherd whose goal for himself and his flock was to speak the truth in love...and who longs for you to do the same.

God gave us the ability to create wealth in order for Him to establish His covenant with us, which is to bless us, to glorify Him and to bless others through us. So how do we go about creating wealth? In this amazing process, which Jesus taught to His disciples, Ulmer explores God's way of taking care of business. “This generation coming up,” explains Dr. Ulmer, “will be the first one that is not financially better off than the previous generation, What kind of legacy are we leaving if we don't train our children about the proper Kingdom principle of asset creation and money management?” In this groundbreaking look at the parables of the talents and the man of noble birth, pastor, teacher and author Dr. Kenneth Ulmer reveals God's process for moving you from a consumer to a producer.

If you are doing all of the talking, it is likely that you will not hear what others have to say, let alone gain from their counsel, insight and wisdom—if this is true with humans, isn’t it even more so with God? It is difficult sometimes, in our era of financial collapse, ongoing war and increasing alienation from each other, to feel confident that the Almighty takes a personal interest in our lives. Knowing God’s Voice is the assurance so many people are waiting for: God is interested. He has a lot to say! Readers will learn to discern God’s voice from the background noise of internal anxiety and external circumstances, and to trust His guidance and revelation even in trying times. God is speaking to His people, if only they will have ears to hear!

Get to know God As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. --Psalm 42:1 Does this describe you? Has your thirst for more intimate contact with God caused you to reach for anything and everything that will bring you closer to Him? Do you want to know Him as a friend, like Moses did, or capture His heart, like David did? In The Anatomy of God, you'll learn that God is not hiding from you. In fact, the Creator of all things desires more than anything to be seen, touched, and known by you! God is a Spirit, yet throughout Scripture, He describes Himself in anatomical terms and images we are familiar with. His eyes wink and squint. His mouth whispers, His smile radiates, and He inclines an attentive ear to our cries. God has hands, arms, and fingers that build, shape, give, protect, and deliver. His heart can be broken, and His nostrils flare when He is angry. His face reveals His glory and His favor. The Anatomy of God is an invitation to see God at work in us, for us, and through us. With appropriate humor and humility, Dr. Kenneth Ulmer introduces us to the Father as we seldom see Him--touchable, emotional, and accessible. Ulmer navigates the seemingly unfathomable depths of the person of God with a pastor's care, a teacher's skill, and a preacher's passion, guiding us into deeper, more meaningful communion. This book is for every man or woman who desires to know God or to know Him better. It is for anyone who questions God's closeness or doubts His concern. The Anatomy of God brings us closer to God by bringing God closer to us.

Preventing Ministry Failure

A ShepherdCare Guide for Pastors, Ministers and Other Caregivers

Page: 265

Great ministers don't just happen. Great falls from ministry don't just happen either. A complex mix of factors both internal and external test the limits of your ability to minister wholeheartedly over the long haul. Senior pastor Brad Hoffmann and licensed professional counselor Michael Todd Wilson work with pastors removed from their place of service. The common experiences of these pastors revealed patterns that consistently contributed to burnout, ineffectiveness and moral failure. If such patterns can be predicted, the authors reasoned, can they be prevented? Preventing Ministry Failure is a personal guidebook for pastors and other caregivers to prepare them to withstand common pressures and to flourish in the ministry God has called them to. Work through the exercises and reflections individually or in conversation with your peers, and you'll find yourself better equipped for the challenges of vocational ministry, and more conscious of the presence of God leading you on and restoring your soul.

It's the beginning of an exciting new challenge!

Every Body Matters

Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul
Author: Gary L. Thomas
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 0310412250
Category: Religion
Page: 272
View: 2278
Few pastors or Christian writers have dared to approach the subject of how proper eating and an active lifestyle can affect how we serve God. Author Gary Thomas does just that. And he reaches all the way back to the apostle Paul, who wrote that we need to prime our bodies to become, "an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work." To illustrate the body/soul correlation, Thomas presents engaging and diverse stories that include a young mom who got fit through volleyball and reaped spiritual rewards in her marriage, a 300-pound pastor who realized his obesity was eroding his ministry impact, and a woman who gained the spiritual strength to survive a contentious divorce by training for a marathon. In every instance, Thomas makes a direct connection between the physical challenge and its spiritual consequence.This book is a must read for anyone seeking new and compelling motivation for strengthening their bodies and fortifying their souls.

The Life You've Always Wanted

Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People

ISBN: 0310565898
Category: Religion
Page: 272
View: 9528
You Can Live a Deeper, More Spiritual Life Right Where You Are.An expanded edition with a new chapter on prayer and discussion questionsThe heart of Christianity is transformation—a relationship with God that impacts not just our “spiritual lives,” but every aspect of living. John Ortberg calls readers back to the dynamic heartbeat of Christianity—God’s power to bring change and growth—and reveals both the how and why of transformation.With a new chapter on prayer and added discussion questions, this expanded edition of The Life You’ve Always Wanted offers modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines. But this is more than just a book about things to do to be a good Christian. It’s a road map toward true transformation that starts not with the individual but with the object of the journey—Jesus Christ. As with a marathon runner, the secret to winning the race lies not in trying harder, but in training consistently—training with the spiritual disciplines. The disciplines are neither taskmasters nor an end in themselves. Rather they are exercises that build strength and endurance for the road of growth. The fruit of the Spirit—joy, peace, kindness, etc.—are the signposts along the way.Paved with humor and sparkling anecdotes, The Life You’ve Always Wanted is an encouraging and challenging approach to a Christian life that’s worth living—a life on the edge that fills an ordinary world with new meaning, hope, change, and joy.

Winning the spiritual Race does not depend upon how fast you Run; it is determined by how you Run. There is a right way and wrong way to Run. Having an organized Training plan is your only chance to make it to the Finish Line. This book study will become a personal Training manual. Run will give you instructions and resources that will equip you to win the Race. The Christian life is often described as a Race one designed by God. In it, we are called to fulfill His purposes for us. We need to be in spiritual shape. Trying to run a marathon is very different from Training to run a marathon. Lets get fit we cant quit when the going gets rough. We can go through all the religious stunts, but unless there is a desire to Train to be like Jesus, few make it and many fall to defeat. A great factor in success is consistency. We may start out in front, leading, but if we do not stay consistent, we become entangled in the affairs of this life. God has called you to Run the Race set before you! Fall on your knees through this study and embrace your Race! Its possible to Run the entire Race, and even cross the Finish Line, only to realize you have been disqualified because you did not Run in such a way. Life is not a game with no lasting consequences. The way we Run has eternal consequences. Lace up, friend; you have a Race to win!
