As we bid farewell to 2013 and begin to make plans for 2014, it gives me great joy to offer you my latest book/eBook titled:  Seven Keys to Living a Kingdom Life.   For a limited time before I formerly publish this work, I have chosen to offer it as My Free Gift To You!. It is my way of expressing gratitude to all the Lord has done for me and through me, and for saying thank you for your interest in the Count the Cost series and the LifePlanning Institute’s vision for Kingdom living.

Again, this is a limited time offer, and one I am grateful to produce and honored to provide.  Some things need to be shared when they are grasped and understood.  Offering it to you in a pre-published eBook (pdf) is the quickest way to make it available.   

New Year’s Resolution

An important ingredient in any good planning for 2014 is determining what your purpose is and how you plan to accomplish it in the days ahead.  Until you understand your purpose it is difficult to accurately plan any of your future endeavors.   Resolutions require a firm determination and commitment to something you have chosen to embrace as direction.  Is that even possible without first knowing oneself and one’s Purpose?

Central to each of us who call Jesus Christ, Lord, is the responsibility to live our life according to His will and plans, and in a way that will bring Him honor and glory.  Some understand the subordination of self and self-will as a necessary prerequisite to Discipleship: evidence that one has chosen to follow Christ’ teachings and character.   Some do not attribute any label or tag to this decision but do acknowledge that as the Bible says, their life is no longer their own.

“Or [according to 1 Corinthians 6:19-20], do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own?   For you were bought with a [very precious] price; therefore glorify God in your body.”               

Enter Kingdom Life

Well, if our bodies are no longer our own, it is probably equally true that nothing of ours belongs to us.  What we each possess is not our own, not even our special gifts, talent or abilities.  This is why we talk about Stewardship in Christianity.  So, the right to use these things any way we please, even though the world might encourage such behaviors, is actually not a right at all.  Being bought with a price implies we—and all that we have or can do—are now God’s precious possessions.  Please tell us whether you agree with this interpretation and Kingdom principle.

My question to you is this:  How then should we live if we are not in charge of our own lives and if we are not actually welcomed in this world?   According to the sayings of Christ found in John 15:19, and of the Apostle Paul found in Romans 12:2, this world is not our true home, nor does it embrace those citizens that love and follow Christ.   In such an environment where you have been “chosen out of the world” and told “Do not conform to the pattern of this world,” how exactly should you live?  

Fortunately, Our Heavenly Father has left us with a way to not conform to the world’s pattern but rather can be transformed by the renewing of our minds.  Insight into this alternative life choice is available in my new book, which is only available FREE for a limited time offer.   So, please click here to obtain your Free CopyAnd, Happy New Year!..
