Jesus said, “And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, even Jesus Christ” (John 17:3). But the question is, how is it possible to know God? How can we know someone who is infinite and eternal when we cannot see him, feel him, hear him, or sense his presence? We see clearly from the creation that there is a God, or else this world could not exist (Romans 1:20). We know from the Bible that God is a loving Father who is the Creator of all things. But there is a way we can know God more intimately and more perfectly. We can know God by knowing his Son, the very one whom God sent to us as the Savior and redeemer of this lost world—his name is Jesus, and he is the Almighty Jehovah God himself. We can know Jesus intimately as our best friend (John 15:15), and our brother (Hebrews 2:11–14), and our Father (Isaiah 9:6–7; John 10:30, 14:6–11), because even though he is God, he became one of us exactly, a man, just like all other men (Hebrews 2:14–18). He lived in this present world exactly as we live in it. So whatever we learn by studying Jesus, his teachings, and his life, we are learning about our loving Father, our God, and our Creator.
Author: Stephen Thurstan
This book is about the Christian being the new man in Christ verses no longer being the old man in Adam, according to Romans 6:6, Colossians 3:9-10 and Ephesians 4:22-24. Understanding this important truth is very vital and a key to the sanctification process in our lives. Without this foundational understanding we will fail to be what God has called us to be: holy even as He is holy. At the end of each chapter are questions for an inductive study for either an individual or a group bible study.
Reflecting the Image of Jesus
Author: Bruce Marchiano
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
In this eye-opening book, Bruce Marchiano explores the humanity of Christ and the Jesus-qualities that we can emulate today While many books have emphasized Jesus as the Son of God, few have considered his identity as the Son of Man. As an actor who took on the role of Jesus for the acclaimed film Matthew, he encountered Jesus, the man, in a life-changing way and in this book shares his discoveries. Employing a friendly, conversational style, he explores a biblical view of manhood as evidenced by such characteristics as humility, passion, honor, selflessness, gentleness, and submission.
A Man After God’S Own Heart
Author: Gerrie Uys
Publisher: WestBow Press
I asked the Lord what men/woman seek and lack in their lives today. The Lord answered and said, Their identity in Christ. I asked the Lord to show me a man and reveal the identity of such man in Christ. The Lord answered and said, I will show you the identity of a man after my own heart. What did I know about David? I knew that he was a shepherd boy who slew a giant. I mean, who would not be fascinated by a story of a boy that slays giants? As I progressed through the journey of studying the Bible about the life of David, I continuously wondered why David was called a man after Gods own heart. Why did God not refer to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, or Moses as men after his own heart? The story of David portrays a life of an ordinary shepherd boy that became the king of Israel. His life, however, was ridden with sin, and yet God called him a man after his own heart. It was only later that the Spirit revealed to me that it was because of Davids fierce intimate desire to have a relationship with the living God that he was characterized as a man after his own heart (Acts 13: 22). God revealed the character of David through this story that runs parallel with the personal relationship that Jesus longs for with each one of usa relationship that cannot be tainted by our sins because of the blood of Jesus Christ. You are all called for a time like this to be a man/woman after Gods own heart just as he had ordained it so that you can have fellowship and an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. You are the only one that can find your true identity through your relationship with Christ! A shepherd boy became king! What are you waiting for? The blood of Jesus works everlasting into the past, future, and present. May the story of David inspire you to a greater understanding of the heart of God the father through his son, Jesus Christ. You have been set free! You are a man/ woman after Gods own heart because of Jesus. John 8 verse 36 states, When the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed.

Author: William H. Qrawshaw
Publisher: Forgotten Books
Excerpt from The Genius of Christ: A Study of Jesus Christ, as a Man of Genius Sizlgfiitions - among many others - spring to the mind in proposing to study and to discuss the genius Of Christ. That the idea is an unfamiliar one need not deter us. What really matters is Whether the idea is true, whether it is consistent with the best that men Of Wisdom and insight have been able to see in him, Whether it is justified by the actual records of his life and his words. It is after all to these, and not to any traditional conception, that the appeal must be made. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

But it’s Worth The Effort
Author: Dennis Wechter
Publisher: WestBow Press
I understand that it is indeed tough to be a man in God's economy, but we are called to be leaders and to walk in Christ's footprints. Our society has a difficult time placing man in a satisfactory role that would complement the Madison Avenue advertising group or the image-makers of Hollywood. They have decided the roles of leader, head of household, faithful husband and father, and moral compass don't seem to fit anymore. This thinking is totally unacceptable and should raise flags of discontent in every Christian household.
As a group in today's world, men need to take back the responsibilities that they have either given away or have had stolen from them, and collectively become the men that Jesus spoke about in his word. There is no excuse for behavior that is not pleasing to God and therefore not profitable to any man. Do not let your earthly condition dictate your spiritual position.
