For some of us being a Christian is harder than it should be. Discouraged, anxious, worn down, we wonder what happened to the power and the joy that Jesus promised. Jim Cymbala believes that many of us are missing something vital. Christianity, he says, for even the best-intentioned person or church, is impossible without the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants to renew his people - to call us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion. In this compelling audio presentation, Cymbala tells the story of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, a struggling congretation of 20 - until they began to pray, and God began to move, and street-hardened lives by the hundreds were transformed by Christ's love.
"Just do it !"
Storm: What Jesus Is Saying to His Church is a book for every Christian who is concerned about the challenges that face believers today. Using powerful stories of people who have been transformed by Christ, it will strike a note of encouragement and hope, helping Christians to remember that a life surrendered to Christ in the midst of a church transformed by his presence cannot be defeated. No amount of spiritual darkness or cultural pressure can drown out the life-giving power of the gospel.
"Another Cymbala Winner!!!"
The primary goal of this book is to help listeners come to a deeper understanding of the nature and character of God and how God works in the lives of his followers. Christians face many barriers in their efforts to grow in their faith, many of which are self-inflicted.
"It is a book I recommend fully. It is so inspiring"
Drawing examples from the Bible and from the sidewalks of New York City, Fresh Power shows what happens when the Spirit of God moves in our midst.
One thing moves God: faith. Not doctrinal savvy. Not will-power. Trust in God alone stirs him to move miraculously on our behalf. Time and again, Jim Cymbala, author of Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, has seen the power of faith displayed in the lives of the ordinary people in his church - and in his own life. He has seen drug addicts and prostitutes set free, marriages restored, and sinners transformed by the love of Jesus Christ. All through the kind of radical, living faith described in this exhilarating audio. Listen to it - and discover how fresh faith can change your life, too.
