Daily Spiritual Nourishment

Most of us like to eat every day. We may not be proud of our diet, but we usually avoid hunger one way or another. In fact, many of us eat three or more meals a day whether we’re hungry or not. Students of nutrition tell us that our appetites are not the best guidelines for what we should be eating. Long distance runners tell us that if they wait until they feel thirsty to start drinking, it’s too late—they are already dehydrated. Many races have been lost because an athlete didn’t drink when he or she wasn’t thirsty. How does all of this apply to the Bible and the subject of spiritual nourishment? God has a lot to say about the care and feeding of our souls.Jesus once had an interesting encounter with the devil. Jesus had been fasting (a spiritual discipline you can read more about elsewhere on this website) for many days and was hungry. At that moment of physical weakness and need, the devil showed up to tempt Jesus. His first temptation seemed like a practical, almost insignificant challenge to Jesus: “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread” (Matthew 4:3). The dare was a simple test with short-term pleasing results (have you ever tasted bread baked in a hot stone oven?); yet Jesus recognized the devastating long-term consequences. He responded, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4:4). In Jesus’ short answer we find a number of important lessons for us: (1) Jesus used God’s Word to answer a temptation. He didn’t argue; he answered. Why? Because (2) Jesus understood that a temptation always zooms in and magnifies a potential weakness. The devil was aiming at two possible places of vulnerability in Jesus—physical hunger and doubts about his identity. If Jesus had had any insecurity about his identity, he might have been convinced that creating bread from stones would prove it. (Actually, it may have proved that he wasn’t sure who he was.) (3) Jesus may not have had a Bible with him, but he had God’s word in him. The real point of spiritual nourishment, which results from “every word that comes from the mouth of God,” doesn’t relate so much to how much of God’s Word that passes through your mind, as to how much of it gets stuck there. It’s not merely ingesting (reading) but digesting (studying, meditating) God’s Word that really feeds us spiritually. (4) Jesus demonstrated that while he was obviously physically hungry, he was nevertheless spiritually well-nourished on God’s Word. Consider attaching your spiritual meals in some way to your physical meals. What would happen in your spiritual life if you had a helping of God’s Word before one of your meals each day? How are you using God’s Word to answer challenges and temptations in your life? These are certainly not only great ways to obey what Jesus taught but also a significant way in which you can grow toward becoming like him. Any habit of Jesus’ is a habit worth having. – See more at: http://www.newlivingtranslation.com/02biblestudy/article4.asp#sthash.uH9fv4Hj.dpuf

The Gospel for China

In less than five minutes you can purchase a Bible for $5 and it will be delivered to someone in China without God’s Word.

The Church in China is the fastest growing Church in the world.  It is multiplying rapidly, even in the midst of persecution.  Unfortunately, millions of Christians in China do not have a Bible. Many cannot afford one or live in areas where God’s Word is not readily accessible. They can’t grow in their faith, or teach their children about Christ.  To answer this need, LifeWay Christian Stores and Tyndale House Publishers have created the Gospel for China campaign, an easy and legal way for individuals or churches to purchase Bibles for Christians and seekers in China.

In less than five minutes you can purchase a Bible for $5 and it will be delivered to someone in China without God’s Word.  You can easily purchase at www.lifeway.com/gospelforchina or at any of the 185 LifeWay Christian Store locations nationwide.

“In less time than it takes to order and receive a meal at a drive through you can purchase a Bible for someone in China” said Jeffrey Smith, New Living Translation Brand Director at Tyndale House Publishers.  Christians have a great opportunity to help reach the millions in China without a Bible by sharing on social media, purchasing one or more Bibles, and praying for the recipients.  Learn more at www.lifeway.com/gospelforchina.

Care Net and Tyndale House Publishers to Provide 95,000 Complimentary Bibles to Pregnancy Centers Across North America

Beautiful Everyday Bibles was created specifically for pregnancy center clients facing pregnancy decisions and seeking spiritual support from their local pregnancy center.

beb

This spring, Care Net will distribute 95,000 complimentary Bibles to its network of over 1,160 affiliated pregnancy centers.

The distribution of complimentary Beautiful Everyday Bibles is made possible by a partnership between Care Net, Tyndale House Publishing, and local Christian bookstores. The partnership began in 2010, and since then has resulted in the distribution of over 725,000 free Bibles to Care Net-affiliated pregnancy centers in North America.

The purpose of the partnership is to help Care Net-affiliated centers provide the holistic support that women and men need when faced with pregnancy decisions. Centers provide not only material and emotional support, but spiritual support as well, and this partnership allows centers to get Bibles into the hands of their clients.

A core part of Care Net’s vision is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the Beautiful Everyday Bibles have opened many doors over the past 5 years to make this vision a reality. The Bible was designed specifically for pregnancy center clients, with a letter from a real Care Net client who chose life, and a topical index and action plan specially created for women facing pregnancy decisions.

“To ignore the spiritual dimension of a person’s pregnancy decision is to ignore a central part of that person’s identity. That is why it is so important for our affiliated centers to have tools available to them to help them deliver the holistic – material, relational, social, emotional, and spiritual – support their clients need to make decisions for life and to be transformed and renewed through faith in Jesus Christ,” said Cindy Hopkins, Care Net’s vice president of center services and client care.

In addition to the direct assistance the free Bibles provide to centers and clients, the Beautiful Everyday Bible campaign allows centers to form important relationships with local Christian bookstores, donors, churches, and community members. These relationships are critical in allowing centers to provide comprehensive, longer-term support to the women and men they serve.

Family Christian and LifeWay participated in promoting the Beautiful Everyday Bible in 2015. The 95,000 Bibles (in English and Spanish) will ship to Care Net-affiliated pregnancy centers at the end of April.

Founded in 1975, Care Net supports one of the largest networks of pregnancy centers in North America and runs the nation’s only real-time call center providing pregnancy decision coaching. Care Net envisions a culture where women and men facing pregnancy decisions are empowered by the gospel of Jesus Christ to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families. Acknowledging that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection, Care Net offers compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through its life-affirming network of pregnancy centers, organizations, and individuals.
