.

And for the Christian family, the temptation is to partake of some of these worldly forms of entertainment: television, radio, video games, android phones, social websites, etc….

.

And God has given us a Book, the Bible in which young and old alike can enjoy and discover more and more hidden truths and pearls of wisdom, enough to keep one busy also for a lifetime.

THE DESIRE OF AGES

.

But during the 1800’s, God raised up Ellen White, who during her 70 year ministry, wrote a number of books about the Bible, of which Desire of Ages happens to be one of the favorites among readers.

A BOOK FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

.

And now, this fine book is available in audio. And the family who is striving to be faithful in a http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_65895/Edward-Armitage/Christ-Calling-the-Apostles-James-and-John--1869world that bends in the opposite direction, this book might just be a wonderful way to gather the family together to read, or to just listen to.

.

To write this book, Ellen White drew primarily from the four Gospels to tell in story form, the life and ministry of Jesus. But she also snatched bits and pieces from many other parts of the Bible as well, applying them to expand this story.

.

And, along with information from outside sources, this book gives the listener a much broader understanding of the life and ministry of Jesus.

“Dear Lord, Help me to be an open-minded seeker of truth, even if it means giving up a very highly regarded Church opinion! Let me be willing to investigate any seemingly new teaching if it appears to have some biblical validity…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_Study_for_The_Cross_and_the_World......_-_Thomas_Cole.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).
