How you can receive God’s power today
October 17, 2012
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
I knew a couple several years ago who, from the outside looking in, had a great life. They lived in an affluent area with a very nice home. But they were without Jesus in their lives. And one day, the wife came home and told her husband out of the blue, “I’m leaving you.” He couldn’t understand it, and tried to convince her to stay. But they ended up getting a divorce.
A friend of the husband’s, a Christian, invited the man to go to church one Sunday. He heard the message that God loved him, and died on the cross for his sins so that he could have eternal life. He trusted Christ that Sunday, and was immediately transformed.
He knew he had to at least try to reconcile with his ex-wife. So he contacted her and told her his eyes were opened. She agreed to see him, and he invited her to go to church with him. Eventually, she also received Christ, they reconciled their marriage, and are still together today!
God doesn’t just save us so we can make it through life and go to heaven when we die. He gives us His amazing life-changing power today. Trust in Jesus to not only reconcile you with God, but to transform your life through the Holy Spirit here and now!
TRUST IN CHRIST NOT ONLY FOR LIFE AFTER DEATH, BUT TO RADICALLY TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE TODAY!

Become the man God desires!
You might think Jesus’ disciples were so extraordinary that you can’t possibly relate to them today.
But the truth is Jesus chose ordinary men to be His disciples and change the world—proof that He uses ordinary guys to do extraordinary things!
That’s why I want to send you two powerful resources today to help you or the man in your life become the man God desires: my 8-CD series called Why Believe – The 12, and my book, Man of God: Study Guide Edition.
In Why Believe – The 12, I give you inspiration—and words of warning—from the lives and beliefs of the disciples to help you live every day with significance and purpose.
And in Man of God: Study Guide Edition, you’ll come to understand the four vital areas of a man’s life that make him who he is!
These two resources are my gift to thank youfor your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, so please request yours when you give today!
