Practical, inspirational resources to help you grow
This is a podcast featuring Mark Finley in conversation with young adult GYC leaders, Shauna Chung and Esther Louw. In this inspiring interview, Mark Finley shares insights, gleaned from a life of ministry and evangelism, on how to live a consecrated Christian life. He answers questions such as: How do I know if my Christianity is genuine? What does surrender look like? What role do emotions play in my conversion experience? We pray you are blessed by this message.
Have you ever wondered how God’s work will be finished on this earth? How is it possible for the truth about Jesus and the gospel of His grace to be proclaimed to the ends of the earth so that Jesus can come soon? In this inspiring lesson, by Mark Finley, we will study how God will accomplish His mission in finishing His work. (This Bible study was originally published by the Adventist World, September 2012.)
In Luke 11:9-13 Jesus urges us to: "Pray for the Holy Ghost!" In John 15:1-11 He tells us: "Remain in me and I in you!" A life abiding with Christ in our heart, thru the Holy Ghost, leads to a fulfilled, productive and victorious life here and for eternity. This is the sequel to the popular booklet “Steps to Personal Revival” by Helmut Haubeil, and is also available in multiple languages. May we all learn what it means to truly abide!

God First is not only the title of this Stewardship Revival Week, but it expresses the belief and behavior of all who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and choose to live to glorify Him. For that reason, “God First” has become a motto for the General Conference Stewardship Ministries Department and an important principle in its Strategic Orientation. In all that we do (and this Week of Prayer is no exception), we envision people putting God first in their lives. We pray these materials are a blessing!
In Revelation 3:14-22 we find the appeal to the church of Laodicea and to the church living at the end of time. That's us! God intends that this message be understood and that it change us into an on-fire, Holy Spirit filled, group of people who love God more than life itself, who are willing to lay down all for Him. Many have been blessed by the popular download "Clearing the Way for the Holy Spirit" by Scott Griswold. As you study his next Bible study series, "Love Letter to Laodicea," we pray that God will do an even deeper work in your heart. Let's also pray that God will help the church to understand and live this message, and not be lukewarm any longer.
It's easy to complain about your pastor or about things that don't seem to be going right, but have you ever spent time earnestly fasting and pleading with God for your pastor, for your church, for fellow church members, or for those in positions of leadership? Have you prayed prayers that go beyond “please bless my church” to "please save those who attend my church! Please save me!?" Heartfelt prayers pleading with God for healing, hope, and effective witness in an age of lukewarm laodicean Christianity?
