The Freebie Round-Up # 54

My heart is grieving at a local hospital pedia ward. Lots of children are crying in pain because of dengue. That’s yesterday when I picked up my father from the hospital because he was discharged after an operation. I remember I was teaching God’s providence on our small group as I pass the pedia ward. That really bothers me. Please pray for these children that God may have mercy on them.

Anyways, here’s a list of great freebies that are waiting to be downloaded. And if your new here to this post or you missed out other freebie round-ups, check the links to those post at the end of this article.

Book Review: Sunny Side Up: The Breakfast Conversation That Could Change Your Life by Dan DeWitt

afdnawgI don’t usually include the sub title of a book on the title of a book review post for the reason of brevity. I think it’s enough to put the main title because it’s already striking. However in the case of Sunny Side Up, I don’t want people to get into confusion on what the book is about. You might think of it as a cookbook or those mushy generic devotionals that includes food or beverages on its title? Well it’s not. Definitely it’s about breakfast but I don’t know if they had eggs that morning. Kidding aside, what I can assure you is that Sunny Side Up is a life changer book.

The premise of Sunny Side Up is the Gospel of John, chapter 21 were Peter encountered our risen Lord. That morning talk made a difference in Peter’s life. And from that the author looks at other places in the Bible were this lowly fisherman, a denier of Christ turns into a person God want him to be. After reading this book, you’ll have a place for the apostle Peter in your heart like never before as he stumbles on issues of pride, love, following God and forgiveness that we, as believers also mess up too. Good thing God is there to pick us up.

This short book (about a short moment with Jesus and Peter) really hits every wall that hinders us to give our all to God. Truly this awkward conversation in an unusual setting shakes what we consider mundane sins to us. It’s amazing that Jesus, the Creator will have a stopover before going to heaven with a mess up fisherman named Peter. He wants also you to dine with Him. Read the book and prepare to be challenged.  If this is the breakthrough of the apostle Peter, it will also be yours.

My favorite chapter is “Cracked Eggs”. It’s the chapter about forgiveness. I know we all struggle with it and this chapter really pierced my heart and almost moved me to tears. I’m really thankful to the author for this part of the book.

Sunny Side Up is slated to be released on February 1. By then one month of 2019 is already over, but still it’s not too late to read it to start your year right. Celebrate love, humility, being a servant, following Christ and forgiveness in a fresh way from a breakfast conversation.

My verdict:

5 out of 5

The Quotable Round-Up #106

vb6a6bkSaw a few articles that pits physical copy against digital copy of the book. Some lean to the physical ones and others cheers for the digital ones. If you ask me I go for both. There lots of advantages on both formats and also some disadvantages. I enjoy both formats and I think that is all that matters.

Anyways, here’s some quotes from the upcoming book by Dan DeWitt Sunny Side Up: The Breakfast Conversation That Could Change Your Life. Release date is on February 1 but you can pre-order the book by clicking this link.

“Orthodoxy may sound like a painfully expensive dental procedure, but it really means having proper beliefs  about God. Orthodoxy is where every person must begin in their relationship with God. That’s not to say people have to pass a test about the Bible in order to become a Christian. Thankfully, God isn’t looking for academic qualifications or good grades. But in order to become a follower of Jesus, you have to have a right understanding of who Jesus is and the forgiveness he offers..”

“It’s dangerously possible to grow in our knowledge of God without growing in our love for God. We can accumulate a lot of knowledge while our hearts remain far from him.”

“Loving God isn’t a flowers-and-chocolates kind of love. Neither is it cheering him on from the sidelines or singing his latest hit. God wants your heart—and he wants all of it.”

“Anyone who has begun a relationship with God understands the powerful impulse to give God our whole lives, our whole heart. But it’s an impulse that has to be nurtured and fed in order to grow. There’s a whole lot in life that threatens our love for God..”

“No matter who you are, or where you are, you can get in on the invitation to love God. God desires and demands our full affection. That’s because he is the greatest good. And his invitation to love him is for our greatest good. Loving God is what’s best for us.”

“Humility is where all learning really begins. What will it take for you to start learning the lessons God wants to teach you?”

“We need to think about how we prioritize our relationship with Jesus. Do we place Jesus above all earthly relationships? Does he even make it on to our short list? If you have to disappoint someone, would Jesus be the top person you would do anything to avoid disappointing? Maybe, as you read these words, Jesus is calling you to make him first in your life today.”
