When our works get tested by God’s fire this book will be revealed for what it really is – one of the most precious gems around. CJ and Shelley have above all else set out in these pages our Creator’s directions for a truly abundant life.
- Dying to self.
- Considering others more important than yourself.
- The essence of what Jesus taught His disciples.
But more than that they have given examples showing that God’s way really works in real life. The important part is not so much giving up the things of the world, but putting our Father and Saviour in their place. Not following what makes sense in the world’s system, but literally doing what Jesus taught. Dare to be different. Dare to be Jesus’ disciple.
Even as I write this I cannot hold back tears as I think of Susan (name changed). Widowed at about 37 years old, riddled with guilt because she could never be the sex partner her husband had wanted. Extremely depressed. Feeling worthless. Why? Abused by her father from 7 years old, with her mother sending her to her father’s bed. But what a change in her life when she finally came to the point of forgiving her parents. The joy, the passion. The serious back problems which had led to surgery suddenly gone. The medicine of the Great Physician worked instantaneously. And everybody at work and church noticed the new Susan, radiant with the love of God in her.
Do not just read this book. Do it. With all your heart. You will be amazed at the life this leads to. And then even more amazed at the changed people around you. All praise and honour to our Lord and Savior.
Thank you CJ and Shelley for this work of love. The word of the Lord says “Keep going”.
