Pastor’s Picks – Recommend Resources

These are recommend resources that we have been personally encouraged and challenged by and hope they do the same for you. It’s been said before that great leaders are readers, and we believe you need to be regularly reading your Bible and never stop learning. May the Lord bless you as you grow! -Pastor Tim Molter

Do you know the purpose of the Tabernacle in the Old Testament, or that the earthly one was a copy of the Heavenly one? There are many wonderful promises that the Tabernacle gives us and  it points us to all that we have in Jesus Christ. For example, the bread of presence and the Bread of Life, the lampstand and the Light of the World, and the mercy seat and the Cross of Christ.

All the colors, materials, measurements and procedures are symbols of God’s promise of reconciliation and they provide us with a picture of how God is making good on His promise. In this book ‘Tabernacle of Promise’, Administrative Pastor Will Glaspie of Calvary Chapel Chico shares the meaning behind the Tabernacle and it’s symbols from the Old Testament to the New Testament.

If you have ever wanted to study or learn about the Tabernacle then this is the book for you as it will walk you through why it is in the Bible and how it points us to Jesus Christ and the many promises we have as Christians. And, don’t forget that by studying the Tabernacle, we get a glimpse of what Heaven will be like as the real Tabernacle in Heaven is going to be even more spectacular.

The church of today has a choice: either we evangelize or we fossilize. Show me a church that doesn’t have a constant flow of new believers coming in, and I will show you a church that is stagnating. With the church of the first century, “each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).

If you are like me, at some point in your past or even the present you’ve probably felt a bit of uncertainty about how to effectively share the “good news” of the Bible’s redemptive message. Understand, this book by pastor and author Greg Laurie is not written to condemn you if you have not engaged others with the gospel message. This book is written to encourage and inspire you.

Taken from the life and witness of Jesus, and tested over Greg’s forty years of ministry, these ideas are intended to mobilize every person in the church to “Tell Someone” about Jesus Christ. If you’ve struggled with evangelism then this book give you the tools you need to overcome some of the obstacles you face in sharing the gospel message. Personally I’ve appreciated the down to earth advice found in this book because it is grounded in the overriding principle of love.
