Christian Literature & Living is a monthly online journal devoted to the worship of the Lord Jesus Christ through literature, and through living according to His Word. We wish to introduce our readers to the best Christian literature, Christian devotionals, counseling, and to the understanding of the relevance of the Word of God in our daily life, in popular language. Christian Literature & Living is a cross-cultural journal, focusing on Christian literature written in all the languages, and Christian living around the world. We learn by listening to and reading our brothers and sisters in Christ from all around the world. We believe that any creative writing with literary sensibilities that focuses on the presence and life-changing ministry of Jesus Christ is Christian literature. We believe that we all need the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ in order to live a life according to His Word. Christian literature and other writings anointed by the Holy Spirit help us to develop a personal relationship with Jesus as the Lord and Savior.
WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!
MAY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST BLESS YOU!!
- BIBLICAL VIEWPOINTS ON DEPRESSION, CONDEMNATION, AND TEMPTATION by ... Pastor Harold Brokke.
Many people, Christians and non-Christians, have experienced depression and conquered it. This was true long before the psychology sciences came on the scene. Over and above all research on the subject, the Bible has the most satisfying answers. Let's look at the main sources of depression and the redemptive ways it can be overcome to Christ.
- THE EARLY CHRISTIAN CHURCH'S EXAMPLE OF RESOLVING DISPUTES by ... Gavin Hills.
Disputes will come and go in our lives as they did in the early church. I believe that we can learn and use these examples of how the apostolic church resolved disputes and apply them to how we live as the body of Christ today. Delegation, speaking the truth, counsel, and healthy separation are all viable forms of reconciling differences within our church body.
- THE GOSPEL IN TIBET by ... A Friend of the Tibetan People.
While there is a seven hundred year history of missions in Tibet and
still only a handful of believers, the harvest is ripe. The Tibetan
church is growing and so is the missions force to reach them. The church
must pray for the Lord to free Tibetans from their darkness, to reveal
himself to them, and give understanding of something that is so radically
different from their understanding of the spirit world and afterlife.
We should pray for an outcome like the prophet Isaiah talks about in
Chapter 25, verses 6-8.
- WHAT GOD TAUGHT ME ABOUT PERSECUTION by ... C. B.
Coming from a country that encourages racial unity and religious tolerance, I ask myself why persecution is still a very present topic in our modern world. Why haven't we outgrown the selfishness and pettiness that stem form our religious differences? I have asked myself and God some hard questions about persecution of Christians around the world today. I cannot say that I grasp everything on this subject but I did get some clear truths and assurances from the Bible ... Christians are those who confess Jesus as their Savior and live their lives for His purposes, even to the point of death. The power that Jesus gives to each believer, according to Luke 10:19, is for him to "trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy ..." Why wouldn't the devil try to get rid of such a threat to his kingdom?
- NEHEMIAH - FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT by ... Pastor Dave Strem and James W. Skeen
Knowingly violating God's best plan for a situation always brings bad consequences. And the closer someone is to God the more negative and far-reaching the consequences ... Nehemiah began to weep and mourn. Nehemiah was born a Jew in a foreign land. He had no memories of the way Jerusalem used to be before the exiles. His reaction to the bad news was not a sentimental one. His prayer to God shows us that his heart was with God ... Many Israelites got lost in the Law, or worshipped false images of God, misrepresenting Who He is. While in exile, apart from the Temple and altar, many Israelites learned to worship God in spirit and truth. They developed a spiritual connection to the Lord. The prayer of Nehemiah shows this spiritual connection.
