Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus
Readers discover exactly what it takes to grow in Christ and become like Him. You don't need a plan, and you don't need a program. To experience the abundant Christian life, you only need Jesus. In Everything, critically acclaimed author Mary DeMuth answers the question: what exactly does it take to become more like our irresistible Savior? The answers readers find will inspire and surprise them. They discover revolutionary insights about: how undecorated obedience brings unprecedented spiritual growth how to rise above doubt, worry and fear how to develop an intimate friendship with the Holy Spirit how to cherish brokenness as a wide open pathway to God and much, much more A life committed to Jesus is not about spiritual "bootstrapping," pulling up our broken selves, hoping God didn't notice our stumbling. With hard-hitting words written in love and smothered in biblical truth, Everything reminds us that the spiritually vibrant life we long for can be grasped. We must fight for it, strive for it ceaselessly, reach for it when we fall, and lift our hands in praise when we're victorious. With extraordinary writing and fresh thinking, this groundbreaking book inspires believers to give everything to Jesus to gain everything he offers.
“Everything is everything you could ask for in a personal primer on how to walk closely with Christ. Mary’s encouraging and thought-prompting words point us to the One who models how to think, who we are and how best to live. No cookie cutter spiritual answers here—just pure inspiration for forging a close walk with Jesus in the midst of the mess of life.”
