Friday Is for Freebies – Life Change

life-change-easleyToday’s freebie is an HCSB Study Bible and a new book from B&H Publishers. In Life Change, author Jordan Easley takes a spiritual approach to the topic of change, walking readers through the book of Mark to highlight stories of life change in the Bible. Looking at seven miracles Jesus performed throughout that text and the people who were changed by them, Jordan shows how the power of God enables us to do what we are incapable of doing ourselves.

It may feel like the odds are stacked against us, but the good news is that change is possible, and it happens when we live out this three-step process:

  • A New Hope: Establish an authentic relationship that inspires and sustains hope in your life.
  • A New Way of Thinking: As a result of that relationship, you have a new way of thinking.
  • A New Way of Living: As a result of your new way of thinking, you have a new way of living.

    If limited to Christmas carols, it would be Silent Night. Favorite song I think of during the season is the Hallelujah (sp?) chorus of Handel’s Messiah.

  2. Dariu Dumitru says

    O Holy Night, where all the church belts out the final verse “Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever”. Try holding back tears!

  3. Helene Domi says

    My favorite Christmas Carol is “Mary, Did You Know.” I heard this song for the first time in 2011 when I was caring for my dying mother. One of the brightest parts of her day was when the mail came. I walked up our driveway listening to this song, day after day, because it was so beautiful. It was my time with Jesus each day as we honored our mothers.

  4. Randy Ruth says

    Hallelujah Chorus. When I was a child we went to the Christmas Eve service at 11 PM. They gave everyone a candle coming in and we sang some Christmas songs and heard a short sermon. A few minutes before midnight, they turned out the lights and lit the candles one at a time off of the altar. When everyone’s candle was lit, the whole sanctuary was bathed in candlelight. Then right at midnight, with the stroke of Christmas Day, the choir broke out in the Hallelujah Chorus. I always think of Christmas when hear that song.

  5. Leon says

    Hark the Herald Angels Sing (The second verse speaks of 2nd birth! I truly sense God’s presence even more while singing that part of the song.)

  6. Nancy says

    My favorite carol is Michael W Smith’s version of Angels We Have Heard on High titled simply Gloria. My favorite Christmas song is Amy Grant’s Breath of Heaven.

  7. Prentiss Yeates says

    ” come now, Thou long expected Jesus”. Hastens our hearts and souls for our savior, who has come and will return.

  8. Shannon Bond says

    O Come, O Come Emmanuel. I know that this is technically an Advent song, but it’s my favorite, nonetheless. Especially the version done by Bryan Duncan.

  9. Allen Baker says

    My fav Christmas carol is “O Come, O Come Emmanual”. But my fav Christmas song is by Amy Grant, Grown Up Christmas List

  10. tony says

    My favorite Christmas carol is “Mary Did You Know” by Kenny Rogers and Wynonna Judd. The truth communicated in that song is amazing and glorious! It reminds me of something I read recently about Christ’s humanity, “For the first thirty years of His life Jesus lived a human life that was so ordinary that the people of Nazareth who knew Him best were amazed that He could teach with authority and work miracles. They knew Him. He was one of them. He was “the carpenter’s son” (Mt.13:55), He was “the carpenter” (Mk.6:3), so ordinary that they could ask, “Where then did this man get all these things?” (Mt.13:56)”

    Mary did you know your baby boy would walk where angels trod? When you kiss your little baby you kiss the face of God. The sleeping child you’re holding is the great I AM! Praise God!!!

  11. Kyle Bridgman says

    Definitely “O Little Town of Bethlehem”…….. “the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.”

  12. Don Durbin says

    Psalm 96:1
    Sing a new song to the Lord; sing to the Lord, all the earth.

    Perhaps not an actual carol, the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ is coursing through my soul at the moment, and will not be denied. 😉 King of kings!! & LORD of Lords!!
