If Saved, Why Work? - Larry’s Third Book (released November 2008)
What do we have to do to be “born-again”? Do we have to do a lot of works in order to be saved? If so, what and how many? What if we mess up? Are we really saved by God’s grace alone?

This has been an ongoing subject for hundreds of years and has resulted in the formation of many religions and cults throughout the world. It is sad to say that millions of people have been deceived by thinking that they had to do works in order to earn their way to heaven; and as a result they did not receive the free gift of salvation by God’s grace through His Son Jesus Christ.

In If Saved, Why Work?, the author, Larry Siemans, explains that we are not saved by our works, but we are saved to do works. Once we are “born-again” by the Spirit of God, God has a unique purpose and calling on each of our lives. We are each given gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit to equip us to do our part in fulfilling the Great Commission. God does not just call a select few individuals to reach the lost and dying world for Jesus Christ. By His Holy Spirit, God gives each of us the grace and ability to do what He wants us to do.

Among the many topics discussed in this book are salvation by God’s grace, saved for works not by works, empowerment by God’s Holy Spirit, faith without works is dead, the Great Commission, pastors alone cannot get it done, ordinary people doing extraordinary feats, earthly purpose, heavenly rewards and the power of prayer.

 

The Nine-Year Notice - Larry’s Second Book
Does God really have a purpose for our lives?  Does God use regular persons or only special persons?  Does God still speak to His people?  Can we really know that we are in the center of God’s perfect will for our lives?

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions or perhaps all of them?  I believe that people all through the ages have probably thought of these questions at one time or another.

Larry Siemans was born again at eighteen years old as a student at Texas A&M University and was content to go through the motions of Christianity.  Then twenty years later in 1987 he began asking himself the above questions.  He felt that God was asking more from him as a Christian.  In The Nine-Year Notice Larry tries to answer some of the above questions as he gives a testimony of God’s supernatural intervention into his life over a span of nine years. As a result, from a biblical perspective the author tries to explain in layman’s terms the importance of listening to God’s voice, submitting to God’s will versus your own will, sowing and reaping, evangelism, persevering through persecutions, having an attitude of gratitude and praise, and above all trusting God in all things.

This book is not a comprehensive study of every area of a Christian life, but it is written to offer encouragement to other believers.  As God is not a respecter of persons, hopefully the reader will see that God will touch anyone by His Holy Spirit.  God is looking for a humble willing obedient vessel whom He can pour out His Spirit on and give him the grace and ability to do what He wants him to do.  This book was written as a testimony of God’s Word, love, grace and goodness.  God alone is worthy of all praise, glory and honor. 

 

The Realities of Prayer - Larry’s First Book
Why pray?  Does God hear my prayers?  Do they do any good?  Does God really answer prayer?

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions or perhaps all of them?  All of these questions are questions that millions of Christians throughout the ages have probably asked several times.

Ever since 1987 the author of The Realities of Prayer, Larry Siemans, has felt that prayer is the most important thing we can do as Christians, but that there has not been sufficient training in this area, especially for new believers in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  As a result, from a biblical perspective the author tries to explain in layman’s terms the importance of prayer and the various aspects of prayer, including the outline Jesus Christ gave us.

Prayer was designed by God as a means of man communicating with God.  The greatest thing anyone can do for God and for man is to pray.  Individual lives, governments and nations rest upon the prayers of man.

In addition to explaining in detail the outline Jesus Christ gave us or what is commonly referred to as the Lord’s Prayer, the author discusses spending time in prayer, praying with purpose, intercession, different types of prayer, praying for others, etc.

This book is not a comprehensive study of every area of prayer, but it is intended to be an overview of major areas of prayer that the author believes are life-changing.  It is a training manual for the person who has a desire to know more about the importance of prayer; and the person who possibly wants to become the person of prayer that God wants them to be.
