The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God

If you've ignored these innermost feelings thinking they're no big deal, this basic yet dynamic program that Bishop Vashti McKenzie has implemented in more than two hundred churches with astounding results is for you.

THE BIG DEAL... shows how to develop a stronger relationship with God and more effective spiritual lifestyle by taking small steps that lead to big changes. Been running for Jesus a long time (I'm not tired yet) Been singing for Jesus a long time (I'm not tired yet) Been running by day and praying by night (I'm not tired yet) I've gotta get going, it's a mighty hard fight (No...I'm not tired yet) I've been serving God a long time (I'm not tired yet) I've been living for God a long time (I'm not tired yet) I've been praying to the Lord a long time (I'm not tired yet) It's an uphill journey but all I've got to say is (I'm not tired yet) The old spiritual song lifts you, but you are tired. Or maybe you're bored. You're still going to church. You're still praying. You're still serving. You're still giving. Deep within you, faith remains. But you feel a longing. You're not seeking fireworks. You're not a pew-sitter, safe in some spiritual comfort zone, looking for a thrill from the Lord. Your trust in God is secure. But you feel a longing for something more, deeper, fresher. If you've ignored these innermost feelings thinking they're no big deal, this basic yet dynamic program that Bishop Vashti McKenzie has implemented in more than two hundred churches with astounding results is for you. Individuals who have had many years of Christian life discovered a renewed sense of calling and purpose. Even new believers were invigorated in their faith-building process. Bishop McKenzie prescribes very small changes-such as adding a mere thirty seconds of prayer daily-that lead to radical closeness to God. And building an enjoyable, meaningful relationship with the Almighty doesn't mean striving for perfection. Small steps-but meaningful steps-collectively evolve into intimacy with God. And the big deal result is greater ability to biblically address life challenges. The big deal is that you're even more available to serve family, church, and community: truly in "no ways tired." Increasing spirituality is incremental, not monumental. Mustard-seed-like increases in positive actions (and corresponding decreases in negative ones) yield mountain-moving growth!

Small Steps to Understanding a Big Gospel

Whether you are a new believer, a seasoned Christian wanting to dive deeper into the Gospel, or someone on the fence about this whole Christianity thing, this little book will take you on a life-changing journey.

Serving the Lord and sharing His gospel message is rewarding. It can be fun and joyful. New friendships form and old ones grow deeper. But it can also be a little confusing. Monty Hobbs used to be baffled when people told him that they were Christians but could not explain the gospel. In time, however, he learned that the confusion was not about Jesus dying on the cross and receiving the punishment we all deserve. It was not about the fact that He paid for our sins. It was more about the process by which that salvation got to the sinner and how it then changed the way that person lived his or her life after salvation took place. Saying you want to change is one thing, but what are the "parts" of salvation? Let's back that up. Did you know that salvation has parts? Small Steps to Understanding a Big Gospel will take you through the scriptures and lay out the process of salvation in the form of a simple chart so anyone who wants to see the "parts" will grasp the manner in which a sinner can be transformed into the person that they were created to be. Whether you are a new believer, a seasoned Christian wanting to dive deeper into the Gospel, or someone on the fence about this whole Christianity thing, this little book will take you on a life-changing journey.
