This Month’s Resources
Galatians 5:23 lists out the fruits of the Spirit that all Christians should exhibit in their lives. The only way to bear this kind of fruit is to abide in Christ. But that is not always easy. This month I have selected the book A Vine-Ripened Life by Dr. Stanley Gale. In this book you’ll learn both about the fruit of Christian character and how to cultivate it. I know this book will help you abide in Christ and bear more fruit to the glory of God.
The afterlife seems like the great unknown. Human imagination and Hollywood have come up with many speculations about what lies beyond. How can we set aside the misconceptions and find the truth?
What are the straightforward, biblical answers everyone needs to know about heaven, hell, and the afterlife? Mike Fabarez examines 10 faulty beliefs that are surprisingly widespread—and look to God’s Word alone for the facts. You will find the truth about common misperceptions like:
- When I die, I’ll go to sleep until the resurrection
- On my way to heaven I’ll have to put in some time in purgatory
- Heaven will be boring with very little to do
You don’t need to guess about the future—God’s Word is ready to inform your mind and settle your heart. Let this book guide you toward a deeper joy, faith, and understanding of eternity.
