It’s Your Call, Don’t Waste It


It’s Your Call, Don’t waste it!
Your call is irreversible,
God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable – Romans 11:29
It is for Men and Women,
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble. – 2 Peter 1:10 
Fix your thoughts on Jesus,
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. – Hebrews 3:1
And live your life worthy of your call.
I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. – Ephesians 4:1

Iron Sharpens Iron


I Am Ironman!

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.  – Proverbs 27:17

My brother, Bob Brown, has spent the past year working on his third book titled Spiritual Passion which is free today only in Kindle Ebook format.  

If you have read either of Bob’s first two books, no doubt, you sensed his struggle with organized religion.  Make no mistake, Bob has a command of scripture and a gift to explain God’s Word clearly and vividly through poetry but he has a deep hurt from some aspect of church life in his past that comes out when he writes.  In some respects, this is a good insight for pastors and us worship leaders to hear.  

I do recommend this book as an uplifting read that can be picked up and read in bite-sized chunks.  The book contains about 500 poems, about 1/3 dealing with scripture, church life, and faith.

A sample:
KNOWING ABOUT AND KNOWING
I can describe to you an ice cream cone
How tasty, how good, how sweet
But you will never experience it
Until like me, you eat
It’s the same when it comes to God
I’d describe him if I could
That which we have handled from the beginning
Oh taste and see, the lord is good
I can describe to you a mighty ocean
Its majesty, its grandeur, its grace
But you will never experience it
Until you allow it to splash your face
It’s the same when it comes to God
For in our churches, we only begin
There’s a difference between KNOWING ABOUT AND KNOWING
He needs to be experienced, deeply within
”Taste and see that the lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” – Psalm 34:8

The Winds of Pentecost 


The winds roared through the room
All who were present heard
The followers were filled with the Spirit
Their hearts were stirred

Do you hear His voice in the wind?
Is He calling to you?
This Spirit who dwells among us
He still seeks a precious few

The winds of Pentecost are real
They blow with passion and fire
They inspire a certain zeal
A calling to which we aspire

He turned babble into understanding
As the ordinary people spoke anew
The languages once foreign and mixed
And God’s kingdom grew

As we enter the season of Pentecost
Of growth, passion and zeal
Feel the warmth of His Spirit
Inside you and incredibly real

A Favorite Chapter


I wrote this prayer based on a particular chapter in scripture. It is one of my favorite chapters.

Praise be to the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ,
You have blessed me in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
You chose me in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
In love you predestined me for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ,
You take pleasure in me.
You have given me redemption through his blood,
You have forgiven my sins.
You have lavished me with the riches of God’s grace.
Through you I have unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
I am here for the praise of your glory.
You have marked me with a seal – the promised Holy Spirit.
You have given me a deposit guaranteeing my inheritance,
To the praise of your glory.

Amen!

The question is, what chapter of scripture is this based on?  Reply if you know the answer and receive a FREE copy of my Kindle-version E-Book (first 3 correct repsonses)!

All of the books are printed in the USA and I should also state that these sale prices are not sponsored by either Amazon or CreateSpace (the printer).  I am buying the books as the author and passing the savings on to you directly.

If interested, contact me at sjbrown58(at)yahoo(dot)com.  Here’s how it would work: You would have to first send a check to me for the total.  Upon receipt of your check, I would place the order and it would be sent in one box to your provided address.

I can also work with you if you would like to preview the book(s) prior to committing.  I can offer free Kindle E-Book versions of the books for this purpose.  Otherwise, you would have to order one copy of the paperback from Amazon at the above mentioned prices but I will include one free paperback in your group order to compensate you for the preview copy.

I can also work with you on a group purchase of E-Books by dropping the price of any of the three books temporarily to $0.99.  Actually, as of this week, Bob has put both of his E-Books on sale for $0.99.

Prices are subject to change.

Who Are The Pillars in Your Church?


“The pillars hold a spiritual family up and hold them together. They  have a long history of faithfulness, and they rarely get what they deserve for their service. One day, they will. In the meantime, why wait? Find the pillars in your church and tell them, “Thanks, we wouldn’t be the same without God’s blessing through you.”

From New England to New Zealand – God’s Word is Shared!


A book promoter living in New Zealand promoted my book on his website and social media sites last week.  Isn’t it amazing how God’s Word is being spread all over the world – even through this little book?
