Confident godliness comes only one way – through a consistent, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. This six week study, with video downloads, will nourish your soul and give your faith deep roots.
Dig into Psalm 119, and discover the strengthening power of God’s Word.
Designed to be done by individuals or groups, the book contains study and discussion questions. Teaching videos to go with the book are available for purchase at www.lynsmith.org. While structured as a six-week study, it contains 22 meditations so it can also be used as a personal devotional.
Below are some quotes from the book that may inspire you to use it …
Peace comes when we understand that we are thoroughly known and absolutely loved.
God is the best one to open ourselves up to because His responses will always be right and filled with love.
Our job is to stay at His feet, to bask in His presence, and to let Him fill us.
Praise becomes a habitual response of our spirit and soul to His magnificence.
Because God’s Word cannot and has not failed, it has been the foundation of millions, if not billions, of lives.

For the past couple months I have had the chance to work with the new Logos 6.

In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit Collection, J. R. Miller seeks to heal the division in the body of Christ caused by ambiguity, bitterness, and denominational rivalry in understanding the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Miller explores Scripture and church history, seeking to unify Christians through understanding of the promise of Christ’s baptism in the Holy Spirit.
The Logos Bible Software edition of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit Collection enhances your study with innovative research tools. Scripture passages link directly to your preferred English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Powerful topical searches help you find what other authors, scholars, and theologians bring to this conversation.
I love a good quote. Over the past 15 years I have collected my favorites and now I tweet them out on a regular basis through @jrmiller777. But for those who don’t like to take their smartphone into the bathroom, I wanted to offer a more traditional way to enjoy these quotes… thus an actual book with pages you can turn (unless you bought the Kindle version and then you are out of luck).
From Mark Twain to Margret Thatcher, the diversity of quotes in this book is sure to entertain, challenge, and inspire you. Most quote books are organized into categories, but make for very boring reading. This book is different because all the quotes; from Poets, Musicians, Theologians, and Philosophers, have been randomized so every time you pick up the book you will find fresh inspiration.
This 6 lesson series is designed to help every disciple of Christ master the art of communal prayer. So much of our culture emphasizes the private nature faith, that we have forgotten the power of praying in groups. This series has been used in my own ministry to help both the brand new Christians and the mature Christians experience the power of praying as a church Family. Each lesson is designed to last 1 1/2 hours. Unlike most group studies, this material puts an equal emphasis on teaching the mind and engaging the spirit. Each lesson teaches one of six disciplines;
I recently listed my Top 5 Systematic Theologies, but there has been some interest in a larger list that not only lists the books, but also helps folks discern the theological background of each author. Listed below are general works in the area of theology that I use in college and graduate courses and should be a good starting place for your theological studies.
I have put a check-mark beside those resources that are considered most reliable and accessible within their theological tradition.
Where possible, I linked the title of each book to give you both a paper and a Kindle option.
