A Template to Check Your Christian Activities Against,
This review is from: The Purpose Driven Life : What on Earth Am I Here For? (Paperback)
In the process of praying, reading the Bible, attending services, witnessing, and following the commands of the Bible, it's easy to forget to check overall on how you are doing in pursuing activities that are good for Christians. I was given this book by my son as a Christmas present and began reading it immediately. I didn't follow the format as I was instructed, but read ahead and then reread sections later.
I gained two benefits from the book that I didn't expect:
1. I became aware that I wasn't doing any small group Bible study and that such study and fellowship would be good for me.
2. I realized I hadn't tried any new ways to serve God in almost a year and a half. It's time for me to try some new things while continuing to do what I have been doing.
Like all books about Christian living, you'll get out of it what your heart is open to receiving.
Those who like to tie back everything they read to the source will find this book a little frustrating because you have to turn to the back to see the source of the Bible quotes.
Those who like short lists telling them exactly what to do will also be a little frustrated because the advice mainly consists of subject areas (pleasure for God, being part of God's family, becoming more like Jesus, serving God, and pursuing a mission) to think about and pray over.
Listen to the small, still voice of the Holy Spirit as you read this book.
May you be blessed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
