Immersion: Live the Life God Envisioned for You by Mark McNees

Immersion: Live the Life God Envisioned for You by Mark McNees

Alcatraz, an icon of hopelessness and isolation.

Immersion by Mark McNeesA prison where a rich and satisfying life is locked out by 50’ tall barbwire-topped walls, an intricate fail-safe security system, and surrounded by the freezing cold waters of the San Francisco Bay.

The Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of our brokenness.

Everyone is faced with a choice; are you going to serve a life sentence? Or, are you going receive God’s promise of freedom by following Jesus Christ? (Galatians 3:22 )

It’s not easy, but you can… Swim to win!

All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but you do it for an eternal prize. So, swim with purpose through the water (Heart) with every breath (Soul), navigation (Mind), kick (Strength), and stroke (Loving Others). Discipline your body like an athlete, training it to do what it should.

Keep Pressing toward the Goal to claim the prize which Christ Jesus has already won for you. (Philippians 3:12)

The prize of a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10)

A few quotes from this book

“…what would a life look like if a person loved God with all of the heart (emotions), soul (spirit), mind (intellect), strength (physical self), and loved others as themselves (social).”

“…are you ready to discard the coping mechanisms you have developed to just get through life and start living out the rich and satisfying life God has envisioned for you? In other words, do you want to be healed?”

“We are a unique, priceless, creation crafted by the very hand of God and if we try to be someone else we vandalize the uniqueness that makes us God’s masterpiece.”

“Your past experiences do not disqualify you from ministry, they prepare you for ministry.”

The Six Symbols of the Gospel: The Whole Story of God’s Redemptive Love by Mark McNees

The Six Symbols of the Gospel: The Whole Story of God’s Redemptive Love by Mark McNees

IF THE GOSPEL IS THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD, THEN WHY DON’T CHRISTIANS TELL THE WHOLE STORY?

The Six Symbols of the GospelIt’s all too prevalent in the 21st century American church to find a Gospel that begins and ends with the cross. And with it, God’s whole story is forgotten among Christians who have lost the context of their faith in Jesus. This same one-dimensional Gospel has kept the Church from embracing its full calling and finding hope in its future. This book lays out the whole Gospel in six easy-to-remember symbols. Each symbol reveals part of the whole narrative of God’’s love for His creation.
