We applaud men for doing good things.We enshrine God for doing great things.But what about a man who does God things?One thing is certain. We can’t ignore him. If these moments are factual, if the claim of Christ is actual, then he was, at once, man and God.The single most significant person who ever lived. Forget MVP. He is the entire league. The head of the parade? Hardly. No one else shares the street. Who comes close? Humanity’s best and brightest fade like dime-store rubies next to him.Dismiss him? We can’t. Resist him? Equally difficult. Why would we want to?Don’t we need a God-man Savior? A just-God Jesus could make us, but not understand us. A just-man Jesus could love us, but never save us. But a God-man Jesus?Near enough to touch. Strong enough to trust. A next door Savior.
"e;Hi God, it’s me, Hermie!"e; It’s easy to feel like you have to do everything yourself. Hermie certainly feels that way when his friend Antonio is in trouble and no one will listen to him when he tries to get help. But God is always listening. When Hermie finally prays, God steps right in to help Antonio out. It is a good reminder to Hermie and all of his garden friends that God always listens and always helps His children. Children learning to read on their own are looking for books at their reading level with fun illustrations. And parents of beginning readers are looking for stories that challenge their children enough to help them become stronger readers but that also have a strong Christian message that ties into a felt need. Our new line of Hermie readers will satisfy parents and children!
Doesn’t every day deserve a chance to be a good day? An opportunity? A shot? A tryout? An audition? A swing at the plate? After all: "e;This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."e; But what of those days when traffic snarls, airports close, friends forget, and spouses complain? Or divorce days, final exam days, surgery days, tax days, or even days when the cemetery dirt is still fresh? "e;Yes, every day,"e; says best-selling author Max Lucado. In Every Day Deserves a Chance he unpacks Jesus’ delightful formula for upgrading each of your days to blue ribbon status: saturate your day in Jesus’ grace; entrust your day to His oversight; accept His direction. Grace. Oversight. Direction. G-O-D. The perfect prescription for filling your day with divine power and giving every day a chance.

No sera sin dolor. No sera de un dia para otro. Pero Dios usara este lio para bien.Mientras tanto, manten la calma y no hagas ninguna tonteria.No te desesperes.Con la ayuda de Dios, saldras de esta.Tienes temor de no lograrlo. Todos le tememos a eso. Tememos que la depresion nunca se vaya, que los gritos nunca cesen, que el dolor no nos deje. Se aclarara este cielo gris? Se alivianara esta carga?En Saldras de esta, el pastor Max Lucado, uno de los autores mas leidos segun el New York Times, ofrece una dulce seguridad. "e;La liberacion es a la Biblia lo que la musica es a epoca de carnaval: audaz, abrasadora y esta en todas partes"e;. Max les recuerda a los lectores que Dios no promete que salgamos de las pruebas rapidamente y sin dolor. No fue asi para Jose -lanzado a una fosa por sus hermanos, vendido como esclavo, arrestado injustamente, olvidado y rechazado- pero su historia en el Antiguo Testamento esta en la Biblia por esta razon: para ensenarnos a confiar que Dios triunfara sobre el mal.Con la compasion de un pastor y el alma de un narrador de cuentos, Max explora la historia de Jose y la verdad del Genesis 50:20. Lo que Satanas intenta para mal, Dios lo redime para bien.
