What does it mean to be apprehended by Christ?
In #Apprehended, author and pastor Sandra Y. G. Jones explores seven different powerful life applications of the Biblical principle found in Philippians 3:12:
“Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.” (NASB)
In this short but hard-hitting book, readers will learn what it means to be apprehended by Christ, and how we, in turn, are called to live an apprehended life for Him. Jones discusses in detail how to apply scripture to achieve this goal in various aspects of our lives, such as our
#Apprehended is a fascinating and encouraging read for anyone desiring a closer walk with the Lord, based on a seldom-preached verse from scripture with a life-changing impact for those who truly grasp and apply its meaning.
I loved the author’s unique perspective and analogies that really drive her points home. Each section of the book is full of powerful scriptures that will help you grow in your faith and ability to apply God’s word to your life. I especially appreciated the section on having an apprehended tongue, with a strong focus on the words we speak and the importance of speaking in alignment and agreement with God’s word (very powerful!).
The one area that left me a little unclear as to the author’s point was the section on image, dealing with Samuel, King Saul, and King David in 1 Kings. To me, it was a bit confusing, and as someone who’s very ardent in my belief of Biblical inerrancy, my impression of the point was such that it was a bit concerning to me, and I wish that the author had perhaps spent a bit more time explaining her point of view.
Overall, #Apprehended is a very encouraging and edifying read for believers, perfect for those who are feeling “stuck” in routine and are longing for a closer walk with the Lord. A wonderful book to challenge and inspire!
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The writer has immense knowledge of the subject she is writing about and used the text of the bible to bring it alive using modern day examples of life and give us a timely reminder of how we can use the message to solve and survive. The strong message that is given is one of spiritual and emotional guidance and how we control that along with the morals of the teachings mark our destiny.
Throughout the book the explanations are excellent and gave me a lot of food for thought and I found myself challenging my behaviour before reacting. At the end of each chapter there is further reading and question's to help you increase your knowledge and also to test your understanding.
A good read for anyone studying the bible or needs a lift in their everyday life.
