Hope Notes – June 23, 2011 – New Gem!

I wanted to take a few minutes and share with you something/someone who will bless your socks off! πŸ™‚

I had heard of Rick Renner many years ago through other ministries that I watch and listen to. He is an apostle to Moscow and does amazing things for God there. I’d seen him work with other ministries over the years and always enjoyed listening to him.

Recently I “found” him and his ministry on Facebook Here.

He shares a short video just about every morning. It is only 1-2 minutes long but it is so amazing and powerful I couldn’t get enough! Very down to earth, very much about your every day life and walk with God. I have truly enjoyed listening to them in the morning with my coffee. Even if they regularly jump on my toes! πŸ™‚

But, I wanted MORE! So I went to his website. He has a daily e-mail devotional they send out free every day called “Sparkling Gems”. So I signed up for that immediately. You can sign up for the daily devotional and see his whole web site HERE.

I was gobbling this daily email up! Sharing it with friends and was so blessed by it as it daily corrected me!
I saw on his web site that these emails were from a HUGE devotional book that Rick Renner wrote called “Sparkling Gems from the Greek – 365 Greek Word Studies for every day of the year to sharpen your understanding of God’s Word”.
You can find and order the book on his web site or other online book sites as well.
I ordered it last week and I can tell you that this is one that you definitely want in your daily life!
The book’s daily “Gems” are longer and more in-depth than the emails. The book itself is quite large. It is not yet available in e-book format. I hope that it is soon!
It is appropriate for daily devotion reading, but it is also great for just key word study as he has put an index of english and greek in the back of the book.
This not a 2 line “quicky” daily devotional. It is in-depth but so down to earth and easy to understand. It draws you deeper into God’s word to teach, correct and uplift you. It it in a word, amazing! At the end of each day’s reading there is a prayer, a confession and questions for you to ask yourself and to take to God.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough! It’s such a blessing!! I look forward to reading and listening to more by this great man of God and his family.

Be blessed!
