Your Life God's Way
21 Ways to Live the Life God Wants You to Live
Ever since the Garden of Eden God has been giving us instructions on how we should live our lives. Prior to the coming of Jesus, God used individuals such as Moses and the prophets to give His will to the people. Then Jesus came and spoke directly to the people to tell them how they should live. His whole ministry was about how people should live their lives. And after Jesus we were given the Bible for instruction. In fact, the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a manual on how to conduct our lives. If we were to really study our Bibles and dig deeply into everything God and Jesus told us we would know exactly how we should be living our lives. But let's face it; the Bible is a very long book and most of us don’t have the time, patience or inclination to do all that.
So, how do we get the knowledge God wants us to have to know how to live our lives? One way is to read books! Books which are written by people who have taken the time to read and study the Bible. Christians are told we should not conform to the world but the world should conform to us. Yet research consistently shows that is not the case; many Christians are no different from others in the way they conduct their lives. Think of "Your Life God's Way" as a guidebook for new Christians who need some help in learning what God expects from His children and maybe for not so new Christians who may need a refresher.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books written to help us understand what God expects from us. And with "Your Life God's Way" there's one more. In this fairly short and hopefully easy to read book, written not just from studying the Bible but from also trying to live it, you'll find 21 ways to live a life that's pleasing to God; 21 ways to live a more fulfilling life; and 21 ways to set ourselves apart as followers of Christ.
