An update from GFI alumnus, Jose Barreda:

Book Published

Recently Jose published a book called The Exchanged Life.

“I commend to the reader, Jose Barreda’s book The Ex­changed Life!” This thorough examination of Paul ‘s declaration “I am crucified with Christ,” unveils essen­tial truths for victorious Christian Living. Such a study leads to the conclusion that what the message of John  3: 16 is for salvation, the message of Galatians 2:20 is for sanctification. Each chapter of this book is followed by an inductive Bible Study to encourage the applica­tion of related Scriptures and insights.” – Dr. John Woodward  GFI International

The principles of this book have been used in the ministry by Jose and Marla for over 35 years. The first printing of the book was in 1978 and used in discipleship in various church­es. The updated printing brings light how to appropri­ate the finished work of Jesus Christ through the understand­ing of Galatians 2:20. It  is being used by EPN Inc. to help  Educators  know  how to bring hope in the lives of their students. It is being used in some Christian Clubs, as well as in other small group and Sunday School class settings.

The Key to the Victorious Christian Life

Key_Victory_MQOur friend Mike Quarles just published an expanded edition of his booklet on Kindle. It’s titled The Key to the Victorious Christian Life: A Grace Oriented Introduction.

“The Director of Grace Walk Recovery, calls attention to the pervasive need for Christians to live an overcoming, abundant life. In this concise biblical summary, he explains how to experience the victory, peace, freedom and joy God has provided for believers in Christ.”

This week the Kindle edition is on sale for 99 cents. It’s a great opportunity to “gift it” to others (if you know their email address).

RU Recovery Ministry

IMG_3230One of our alumni, pastor Richard Scheer, leads a chapter of RU Recovery near Buffalo, NY. He noticed strong similarities between GFI and RU content. John attended the RU basic training in Rockford, Illinois June 2,3. We are glad to report that RU Recovery has an explicit message of victory through appropriating Christ as Savior, Lord and Life. They speak of this in terms of “the Hidden Life” (Col. 3:3). Their materials feature Chuck’s body/soul/spirit wheel diagram (1 Thess. 5:23), and emphasize grace for Christian living, rather than self-righteousness. Reformers Unanimous resources are available to equip individuals and ministries, even if they are not enrolled as an official RU chapter.  See RUrecovery.com
