📒I Am A Church Member ✍ Thom S. Rainer
📝I Am a Church Member Book Synopsis : Best-selling author and ministry leader Thom S. Rainer drew an exceptional response when he posted a 500-word declaration about church membership to his daily blog. "I Am a Church Member" started a conversation about the attitudes and responsibilities of church members -- rather than the functional and theological issues -- that previous new member primers all but ignored. Thoughtfully expanded to book form, I Am a Church Member begins to remedy the outbreak of inactive or barely committed church members, addressing without apology what is expected of those who join a body of believers. When a person's attitude is consistently biblical and healthy, matters of giving, serving, and so forth will fall into place more naturally. Six intentional chapters with study questions guide this rising discussion: 1. I Will Be a Unifying Church Member 2. I Will Not Let the Church Be About My Preferences and Desires 3. I Will Pray for My Church Leaders 4. I Will Lead My Family to Be Healthy Church Members 5. I Will Be a Functioning Member 6. I Will Treasure Church Membership as a Gift

📒The Power Of I Am Not ✍ D. Zeidler
📝The Power of I Am Not Book Synopsis : From the introduction:"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible..." the redemptive figure informs as L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz constructs a story to criticize the political ethos of his day around the basic premise that meager decrees make the Wizard neither great nor terrible. The grander the gesture the larger is the jester. "I'm really a very good man; but I'm a very bad wizard." The statement "I am" made him not.Self-proclaimed greatness has dominated culture from Narcissus to the Selfie. Morphing along the line of time from a subtle watermark to an electronically broadcast accounting of a trip to the gas station with accompanying pictures, flattering descriptions, and boisterous shouts of "look at me"; the inflated self-worth no longer just permeates the few in the limelight for now the hoi-polloi empowered via a cell phone can also freely embrace self-exaggeration. Thoughts which were once contained in the power of positive thinking have further developed into even greater self-centeredness in the power of "I am..." being pronounced as the key to self-fulfillment and enrichment.Today Christian leaders have embraced the lunacy of seeking personal proclaimed supremacy through harnessing of the self-empowered. The 2015 release of Joel Osteen's book or a 2013 release by Thom Rainer both display "I am..." in the title. This self-seeking personal endorsement is nothing new, humans have always sought to hide behind self-aggrandizing; "Then the LORD said to Cain, 'Where is Abel your brother?' He said, 'I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?'" (ESV Genesis 4:9) A human cannot affirm anything into being. Cain killed Able despite his bold indifferent words of proclamation, claiming to be above such a petty pursuit of babysitting. "I am not responsible." is a reasonable paraphrase of Cain. It is through choices and actions that an individual being is developed. Denial changes not your past actions, nor do statements change the future; rather you and your actions produce results. There is tremendous self-absorbed danger in thinking too much more of yourself than, "I am a sinner." The proclivity to follow the statement, "I am..." with anything other than humility is an immediate warning of an unsound motive.
