What we often believe is normal Christian living is very different, in many ways, from what the Bible teaches. Laurie says that if you find the Christian experience dull and unfulfilling then maybe it's time for you to examine Jesus' teaching regarding discipleship.
Evangelist Greg Laurie calls all Christians back to radical. The blueprint is simply: Get to know Jesus, follow His plans for discipleship, and share God's truth with others.
Three key points are expanded on:
1. How to know God--and how He will change your life
2. Discipleship--the commitment, the cost, and the spiritual growth
3. Making Him known--sharing the gospel and making disciples
Sharing personal stories from his own life (his salvation story brought tears to my eyes) and others, Laurie writes in an engaging and compelling way while he teaches us what it means to truly live the Christian life the way God intended.
If your Christian life seems flat and boring, then reenergize it. Pick up a copy of Greg Laurie's book, LET GOD CHANGE YOUR LIFE today.
To me this is a great question. It is probably a question that many in the Church cannot adequately answer, because in all honesty they do not know what they believe, much less what it means to be a disciple of Christ Jesus.
In Let God Change Your Life Greg Laurie focuses on basic 101 Christianity.
When Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 28:19-20 NIV,
"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
When Jesus asked them to, "go and make disciples." It was not a request, but a command. It is also a command for us as well, in telling and in living out our lives the faith that we profess in Jesus Christ.
Greg Laurie leads the reader through basic Christian doctrine for the goal of spreading the Gospel to others.
Yes, there were things I read in this book that I knew, but I was convicted about a few things as well. Conviction is not a word that grown-ups like, it makes us feel defensive like little children before an angry parent. But, conviction is a good thing, it is actually freeing, and if we remain teachable and not defiant, we can learn something that will produce the fruit of maturity.
There were several great quotes from the book such as:
"For every person there will come a last meal, a last breath, and of course, last words. And in many ways, what we say in the end is a real insight into who we were in life, what we stood for, and what we lived for. Generally we die as we lived." page 47
"Many Christians never grow up spiritually. They still act like spiritual infants." page 76
"Jesus was not calling people to a marginal belief in Him; He called for complete and total commitment...Some people respond only to certain aspects of His message. They pick and choose what appeals to them and pretty much ignore the rest." page 78-79
And Greg Laurie stated we must "die to self." See Romans 14:7-8
I am reminded of a quote from Ed McCully in the book Beyond Gates of Splendor,
"I have one desire now to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it."
That quote is the definition of living for Christ Jesus. We live every area of our life for Him and for His Gospel.
Greg Laurie not only leads the reader through basic Christianity, but a short course on apologetics and on witnessing.
When witnessing to others he leads the reader through what to say, how to approach, and what not to say---mainly referring to a righteous attitude.
There are points in the book where Greg makes light-hearted statements.
There are several stories he shares from his own life.
At no point did I feel he was off Biblically.
He is bold, bolder that many in the Christian community in writing about words that have taken a "back seat" so to speak.
He encourages us to read and study the Bible, do not depend on someone else to tell us what is in it.
He encourages us to depend on the Holy Spirit to share the Gospel message with others, we do not depend on our own initiative and strength.
He encourages us to grow-up in our Christian faith and to not remain as a babe still being fed by a bottle.
I loved this book!
I plan on reading it again!
This would be an excellent book for a group at Church or in small group homes, and of course for individual study.
I felt Greg Laurie organized the book well.
He expressed himself well so as any level of Christian would understand.
I do think that the back cover of the book could have described more about the books strength in basic Christian doctrine. There is just so much more this book has to offer than what was on the back cover.
Thank you to David C. Cook and B and B Media for my free review copy.
If you don't already have one, download a good Bible then download this book and read them both. No one is promised tomorrow. Accept JESUS as your Lord and Savior before it is to late.
* How to Know God
* Making Him Known
Laurie takes us on a logical progression of how we should be living our lives. He begins right where it's needed the most; the heart. What we find throughout the pages of this book is how to live the Christian life based in the Bible. Laurie's book is a challenge and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. "'Are you a laborer in the harvest?' Laurie asks. 'The complainers are many. The observers are many. The spectators are many. The critics are many. But the laborers are few. We need laborers in the harvest. Will you become one?' Let God Change Your Life is a bold challenge to Christians everywhere to rethink their lives in terms of dynamic New Testament living."
Special thanks to The B & B Media Group, Inc. and David C. Cook for providing this complimentary book to read and review.
