Review

"God is calling for us to let go of our fighting, struggling and contending and simply embrace the truth that the Kingdom of God already reigns and rules in the earth. Pastor Myles’ book is like a treasure map to the promises of the Bible, teaching us what it truly means to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” so that everything else can fall perfectly into place."
      —Matthew Crouch, CEO of Gener8Xion Entertainment

Myles Munroe is a man full of wisdom and understanding. He has written a book, Reclaiming God's Original Purpose For Your Life: God's Big Idea. What is the "Big Idea"? It is the idea of bringing The Kingdom of Heaven to earth, as opposed to just preparing to leave for Heaven. A kingdom has a king, in this case, Father God. We are here to colonize a planet called Earth. Everything we say and do should reflect the culture, the heart, and the lifestyle of this King. There inevitably will be conflict bringing Heaven to Earth in our Western culture, where we highly value personal independence vs. obedience to a king.

We, the Church, are the ekklesia, literally meaning "the called-out ones"; and we are called out to rule, just as the "called-out ones" meant the leaders of Greek and Roman government ruling during Jesus' time on earth. The "called-out ones" helped the procurator, or governor, (ie; Pontius Pilate) to rule the new colonized territory in the name of the emperor, (ie; Augustus Ceasar). So we are the "called-out ones", working with the "procurator", Holy Spirit, to colonize the earth for our King, Father God. That's why Jesus was born in such a time as that time, so we would understand colonizing a kingdom. The only thing I would add is the Kingdom of God is found within us, and it is eternal and built on the unseen. We permeate society sometimes almost imperceptible, like yeast permeating the whole dough.

This book provokes alot of thought. I think of my own background, where families were purposefully left small, in order to provide a "good life", further education, etc., for their children. Today, I see people groups purposefully creating a large family, extending their long-term goals to influence the earth.

Dr. Myles Munroe, internationally known author, lecturer, Bible teacher, and leadership mentor, tackles the questions being asked by people around the world,
"Why Am I here?" and "What is the purpose of my existence?"

"Reclaiming God's Original Purpose for Your Life" is divided into two parts. Part one introduces "God's Big Idea" in a 40 day reading format made up of illustrations, stories, and instruction which take the reader back to the Garden of Eden to rediscover God's purpose and plan for his kingdom, for man, culture, community, worship, and service.

Part two provides the reader the opportunity to journal personal responses to each of the 40 day readings. The journal includes a relevant scripture, excerpts from the book, questions and ideas for consideration and reflection and a meditation which will prompt additional introspection and action.

Dr. Munroe's writing is filled with powerful principles for life based on scriptural foundations incorporated in his own philosophy, lifestyle, and personal experiences. "God's Big Idea" is a book for everyone seeking to know God in a deeper more intimate relationship while reclaiming their own destiny.

Just another really great book by Dr. Munroe. It is part of his 'series' as I have named it, because of His prior writings.
Part I God's Big idea has ten chapters engaging the reader to know the influence of our God in His or her life in order to master the 'Big Idea'. it is God original purpose for a life.
Part II uniquely has 40 days of building upon and discovering God's Big Idea in Your Life.
This is an excellent book by an excellent writer of Truth and Love and guides in the building of spirituality in a Christians life.
Read and grow. (Learn about Dr. Munroe's writings and his leadership training.).

Reading this book all I can say is, "Dr. Myles Munroe did it again with, "God's Big Idea". To me, this book is a continuance in the kingdom series that he put our a few years ago, but this book can stand on its own because it shows you where those kingdom principles came from, "God's Big Idea".

There's a lot of nuggets in this book.

Dr. Munroe used a lot of illustrations to describe what's "God's Big Idea" is all about. He started with the Garden of Eden being God's Kingdom here on earth (visible) to being the replica of God's Kingdom in Heaven (invisible). The King's (Christ Jesus) Garden Expansion Program is designed to draw people into His Kingdom from all over the world and to prepare them for Kingdom life and leadership in the new heaven and new earth (Revelation 21:1) and He's doing this right now. He talks about kingdom citizens, kingdom influence, and kingdom culture and colony throughout the book to get you to understand and realize your true identity in the kingdom.
The part about the Holy Spirit, all I can say is WOW! I'm just going to give you a small taste - he said the Holy Spirit is your Master Gardener, the One who reveals to you the will and the ways of your King and teaches you how to have a kingdom lifestyle and how to manifest the Fruit of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit oversees the full operations of the garden life in you here on earth and He holds the keys for you having a successful garden maintenance program here on earth. He's the link between heaven and earth and in Him we're connected in both worlds the supernatural and the natural realms.

There's so much I want to say, but I'll end up writing my own commentary on this book. I truly HIGHLY recommend this book to those who are searching and want to know more about the Kingdom of God.

If you want more, take the 40 Day Challenge To Discover "God's Big Idea" in your life.

Need I say more!
