Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. MacArthur draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you.

It continues to stir the hearts of readers with its arousing message today.

Bestselling author Joyce Meyer teaches readers how to confess with their mouths the desires of their hearts.
Many Christians believe in and practice things such as prayer and Bible study. They faithfully attend church every week and try to be the type of person-through their actions and words-that God wants them to be.

Only when people understand they must take action and speak aloud the things they long for will they be able to truly receive God's blessings. Faith is active, says Joyce. It must be released. It is an offen ... more
