Description : A desire to know the will of God is, as it should be, the top priority of any serious Christian. But how are you to find out what God's will is? Who hasn't agonized, questioned, and then doubted and questioned again? But here is Danny Morris to the rescue with an eight-week workbook on knowing God's will. Each weeks' exercise begins with an account of a personal experience of the author from which he brings forth biblical, theological, and historical principles to help you in your search. As you respond, God's will is certain to become clearer. During the first five weeks, you will learn about the nature of spiritual discernment, discernment for the individual, spiritual intuition, ways in which God communicates with believers, and discernment as a spiritual gift. In the second part, the author shifts his focus to corporate discernment; that is, discernment within and for the church, the body of Christ. At issue here is consensus: how consensus is possible, why it is difficult, and how it works in church boards and committees. Danny Morris insists that consensus is not only biblical but practical, despite skepticism on the part of those whose experience would lead them to believe that disagreement is a way of life in church. Some maintain that consensus would never work in their congregation. But the author points the way to diminish and eventually eliminate such conflict. The third part of the workbook details a workable plan for church retreat, a time away from phones and schedules, where your group will learn how to make decisions by consensus, by group discernment of the will of God for the congregation. What better way to help move forward the work of God?
Description : Christians rightly believe that within the pages of the Bible God reveals His moral will to His people. Indeed, by studying Scripture believers can learn to follow God's moral standards, which address a wide range of life issues. Yet, many Christians wrestle with the idea of knowing and doing what they believe to be a special individual will of God for their lives. As commonly understood, this individual will is related to subjects such as what school to attend, whom to marry, which church to join, what career path to pursue, what purchases to make, and a host of other similar issues. In this book author David W. Jones examines the important concept of the will of God and suggests that Scripture alone is sufficient for Christian life and practice.In the process of looking at God's will in Scripture this book helps readers to understand the meaning of major biblical passages that speak about God's will. Topics that are explored and explained in this clear volume include: the difference between true and false prophets, the practice of casting lots, the biblical use of the Urim and Thummim, the place of dreams and visions in the Christian life, the idea of angelic visitation, as well as the use of supernatural signs to know the will of God. Additionally, this text includes discussions about the place of prayer in decision making, the role of the Holy Spirit in revelation, and suggestions for how so-called weaker and stronger brethren can interact regarding issues of Christian liberty.
