On the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace (2 Cor. 4:16 MSG)

Hi, Friend,
A New Year's Message from Peter Wade

You Can Begin Again
The new year is a valuable time, for God gives you an opportunity to begin again! When you first became a Christian, a New Creation in Christ, God made "all things become new" in your life (II Corinthians 5:17).

But since then, some have lost the thrill of being a child of God, some have found that believing seems harder than it was before. Yet, you can begin again! Some are having difficulty getting their priorities right: Go For the Best — God, Family, Business. Some can’t seem to get ahead with their bills. Some don't feel as physically fit as they once were. Some relationships need more work. To all these — and more — God says: You Can Choose To Begin Again!

One Bible character who demonstrated this so clearly is Isaac — read the account in Genesis 26:12-33. Isaac was a man who believed in applying God’s positive principles. "Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundred-fold: and the Lord blessed him" (v.12). The principle of giving and receiving worked then, and it is still working today. 

When the local people saw Isaac’s abundance, they were jealous — they developed a negative reaction to a positive blessing. So negative were they that they decided that if they could not get such an abundance then no-one was going to enjoy prosperity. They proceeded to fill in the wells of water and had their king invite Isaac to move to some other part of the country! 

Read the conclusion of this New Years' message and see how Isaac handled the challenge.

In this age of diminishing biblical literacy, we have to ask, "Why is it so?" As one author wrote in 1907: "The Bible is not enjoyed because the Bible is not understood."

More than a century later, the situation has vastly deteriorated. In the US, below 40% of Americans who have a Bible never open it! In the UK it is worse, with 60% of Church of English-followers never reading the Bible. 
In this book, Peter Wade artfully leads you through the first simple steps to understanding what the Bible is saying.
  • Accept the integrity of God's Word.
  • Read what is written in an essentially literal translation -- and believe what you read. 
  • Mark your Bible to aid your memory. 
  • Look for repetitions, contrasts, comparisons.
  • Note the little words that have big impact, such as prepositions.  
All this and more in 17 powerful chapters with many examples from the wisdom of a lifetime of Bible teaching. Plus an Introduction to Figures of Speech for those who want to dig deeper.

This 88 page book is rich with instruction and illumination. It's perfect for group Bible study too, complete with a discount for multiple copies!
