During the next month, you are going to go on a journey to share your Faith. Along the way on this journey, you’ll reflect on what you believe and why you came to believe him. The Scripture and other insights in this devotional lead you to reflect on your faith journey, while the prompts help you record it. From jotting down simple notes to eventually laying out a clear presentation of your beliefs, you will be able to capture the unique work of God in your life. The result will end in a faith and legacy clearly written to share with loved ones. I give The Story of My Life In Christ five out of five stars! Happy Reading!
If you were given a time slot to share your testimony and your faith, this book would really come in useful in helping you chart the elements to talk about. To me, evangelising is about sharing the gospel - God’s love and His plan for salvation, not quite your story though that might make a good aside. I’m glad there are lots of Bible verses and a devotional to help you know what to say about the Good News. To me, this book would be great for helping me evaluate my own faith for my own reflection and growth.
The title, The Story of My Life in Christ, may lead you to think that this book is an autobiography. It isn't. Instead it's a devotional book to help you write your own story. Merlin and Theresa Buhl write a unique devotional that is sure to encourage you.. For 28 days you get to think about your relationship with Christ and how you can share it with others. Instead of being preachy you simply share just as if someone were telling you about something or someone they are excited about or love. Everyone has a story. Each week you focus on a basic question tha begins with a how, why, what or who. Then each day of the week includes a theme, focus, and devotional though followed with an activity. Most activities are reflections on your lie and you jot down thoughts and notes to be used later. Throughout the weeks there are times of retereat when you take your notes and write. At the end of the book there is a complete surprise as to how you can use your notes to complete something beautiful. This is a wonderful book with a wonderful way to use what you learn. You don't have to be a writer to enjoy it, but you do need time. The daily activities don't take much time, but time for a retreat day is necessary to organize your thoughts. After reading this book I would suggest that you take your time with it. Even though it says 28 days, it would be beneficial to do each day at your own pace. Some days and activities may take more thought than others and that's acceptable. Go at your own pace, soak it up and leave a legacy for the ones you love. *I am thankful to NetGalley for giving me a free eBook via Our Daily Bread Publishing.
