Download and read online Listening to God in Times of Choice in PDF and EPUB All Christians yearn to live at the center of God's will. But how to discern his will is an art that eludes many of us. And the advice we get often conflicts. Some tell us to look for a divine "blueprint"-the one perfect plan for our lives that we need to find. We are encouraged to search the Scriptures and hunt for signs, trying to uncover the map of our lives that God has drawn. Others have rejected the blueprint school of guidance for the "wisdom school." With minds renewed by the teaching of Scripture, we are to develop the wisdom necessary to make wise choices. We are told not to expect that there is just one answer to God's will for every decision we face. Several may be possible. The difficulty with both approaches, writes Gordon Smith, is that they minimize the presence and voice of God in times of choice. Instead, he argues for a third way. He suggests that we develop discernment as a spiritual discipline. By stressing the personal aspects of growing in our relationship with God, we can understand his will, not just in times of crisis but throughout our daily lives. This book provides no magic formulas, no recipes for guaranteed success-just a lot of insight, gleaned from centuries of lived Christian experience, that will guide and encourage you in the art of discerning God's will.

Download and read online Listening for God religion and Moral Dis in PDF and EPUB Listening for God proceeds from the authors belief that, across a wide spectrum of outlooks, people are attracted to religion, yet wary of it. The book is intended to speak, in an honest and reflective way, to those who have conflicting feelings about religion, and are put off by the needlessly polarized and blithely self-assured style of much writing about it. Grounded in his won religious tradition yet manifesting great respect and appreciation for other traditions, Lesnick recounts the odyssey of his own encounter with religion, from a mild form of conventional adherence to Conservative Judaism as an adolescent, to a long period of alienation from all religion, to a gradual and deepening re-engagement with Judaism through his sympathetic exposure to religions.Lesnick articulates the ways in which the author has found it illuminating to turn to religion as an aid to discernment of moral truth, rather than as a source of metaphysical knowledge or belief. The God of which he speaks is both the repository of truth about moral life and force that draws him to struggle to discern and follow it.The book offers the reader a bridge between apparent polarities too often found in the world and ourselves-between emotion and reason, experience and authority, knowledge and belief, faith and doubt, ethics and ritual, hope and despair. Written by a teacher of law, it asks, where do moral imperatives come from, and how do the answers found in religion and in law affect one another? Listening for God is a record of, and a grateful prayer for, sustaining courage and hope in a fallen world.

Download and read online Listening for God Through James in PDF and EPUB Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to slow down, read Scripture, meditate on it, and prayerfully respond as they "listen to God" through His Word. During Jesus' public ministry, younger brother James seems to have been a doubter (John 7:5). Yet the resurrected Christ appeared especially to this brother, and James was among the believers as they gather in the upper room in Acts 2. So, at some point, James became a true spiritual brother of his earthly brother. The content in the book of James is focused on the practical, day-to-day living out of the example of Jesus, in word and in deed. One key theme is that the little sins we consider more acceptable (like gossip, jealousy, favoritism, and hoarding wealth) are as ugly in God's eyes as the biggies. Its instructions have everything to do with how true believers - then and now - live as Christ-followers in the real world.
