Overview

Logos is pleased to offer the CrossTV/Word Pictures video series The True Christian’s Love for the Unseen Christ as our newest addition to the Logos video library. This 21-part series is accessible for study and reference. The video book series utilizes the same tagging techniques featured in our electronic book collections, so it fits seamlessly into your existing library.

The True Christian’s Love for the Unseen Christ is a 21-part video series on the meaning and necessity of loving Christ. The series takes up the spirit of Thomas Vincent’s classic 17th-century work and applies its edifying message to modern Christianity. It encourages the believer to ever increase their love for Christ, and shows the unbeliever the unlimited joy that flows from this love. It also provides a dire warning to those who profess Christ, but choose not to love Him wholly and entirely. As Thomas Vincent himself writes, “Without love to Christ, we are as much without spiritual life as a dead carcass is without natural life. Faith without love to Christ is a dead faith. And a Christian without love to Christ is a dead Christian. Dead in sin and trespasses. Such “Christians”—no matter what they profess—are still unbelievers. Unbelievers who are under the condemnation and wrath of God. In short, without love to Christ, we may have the name of a Christian, but we are entirely without the nature of a Christian. We may have the outward form of godliness, but we would be entirely lacking the power of godliness.”

Mark Kieler is your host for this eye-opening exposition of Biblical truth. Through this series, he vividly defines what it means to genuinely love Jesus Christ. With this definition, he challenges you to search your own heart and determine whether or not you personally have such a love. And if you find yourself lacking, Mark presents that which is needed to ignite that love and fan it into a roaring blaze.

While the series relies heavily on Thomas Vincent’s poignant and powerful work, it also invokes the writings of other spiritual leaders from days past. These include Jeremiah Burroughs, A. W. Pink, John Bunyan, George Mueller, John Flavel, R. A. Torrey, Charles Spurgeon, John Owen, James Alexander, and others.

1 Peter 1:8 states: “Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.” Let The True Christian’s Love for the Unseen Christ help you fulfill the promise of this verse in your own life.

About Word Pictures

From CrossTV/Word Pictures:

People are tired of a mock, pseudo, superficial Christianity. They’re realizing that despite all the hype and emotion up front, in the final analysis, much of modern Christianity is nothing more than a “form of Godliness, without the power.” (2 Timothy 3:5) Yet, there is a new, God-sent thirst and hunger amongst a relatively small (but rapidly growing) remnant of people, to experience, know, love, obey, suffer for, and serve the one, true, living God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.

And those same people want a true, straight talking, plain speaking, “don’t tell me what you think I want to hear; tell me what I need to hear,” biblically accurate interpretation and exposition of God’s Word. They want to know what God wants us to know, the way he wants us to know it.

And people have grown weary of being hit up for money, or given “fluff” in place of doctrine, or having their intelligence insulted or placated in the name of Christianity. The result has been a genuine longing for the preaching and teaching that the Spurgeons and Wesleys and Edwardses of yesteryear were renowned for.

“Word Pictures” is one ministry’s God-fearing attempt to be faithful to that call.
