Review: It's A God Thing by:Charles L. Roesel
About the Book:
He who has two tunics, let him give to him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise (Luke 3:11 NKJV).
A bold leader decided to follow Jesus’ teachings, resulting in a powerful ministry that has every member in his congregation serving the poor, the downcast, and the naked. Through this obedience to Scripture, his church grew from a small fifty-member congregation to a thriving, life-filled body of Christ-followers that is active in an astounding seventy ministries today.
Learn how your church can follow Jesus today, no matter your budget or how stale your current ministry “programs,” and in spite of opposition. Dr. Roesel overcame the overwhelming odds and proved that Jesus’ teachings are still valid today.
In this book:
• Dr. Roesel’s ministry – an incredible testimony of Ministry Evangelism
• Importance of discipleship – Jesus knew how to build a good foundation
• Leadership first – leaders must be pioneers, examples, and overcomers
• Money matters – how to avoid letting finances trip you up
• Getting started – ministry ideas that take off
About the Author:
Dr. Roesel’s rich past includes being the recipient of the Southern Baptist Distinguished Service Award. In addition to all other ministries, Dr. Roesel had a television ministry reaching out to four million homes each week. In 1973, he was chosen as Florida’s Urban Pastor of the Year by Stetson University.
First Baptist Church of Leesburg, Florida, thrived under Dr. Roesel’s thirty-year leadership and is now considered the model for Ministry Evangelism. In a town of 15,000 with over ninety churches, the church grew by transformation, baptizing over 7,000 people.
First of all, WOW! This book is an excellent book on teaching those starting in sort of ministry, how to go about situations you may find yourself in concerning the church. The author has listed several items to help struggling ministries and churches advance. He also gives us some insight on how he believes certain things should be handled such as tithing. I really enjoyed reading about the growth his church had taken as well as how when they decided on a goal they would choose the biggest thing that seemed completely out of touch through human hands. It's a God Thing, is a good encouraging book to help those of us that have struggling ministries, it's encouraging, uplifting and inspiring.
Many times you just want to throw in the towel because those around you don't have the same vision that you do. But God says not so fast! Don't be so quick to say that I can't or won't show you just how powerful I am. The author has led many successful ministries that by God's grace have exceeded his own goals to meet up with God's destiny. Believers KNOW who is on their side through this whole thing and we should do everything physically possibly to line up with His will to bring His full glory to the eyes&ears to those that need it!
