Do you ever feel angry with God? Do you ever ask, 'Why is serving You, so hard at times?'
Do you feel paralyzed and ineffective by your own baggage? Is your service to God reminding you of a never-ending treadmill? Again, you're not alone!
God's Significant Me unpacks some of the deep issues of the Christian experience and our often-faulty methods of evaluating accomplishment. In these pages you'll go on a true-to-life journey to the discovery of significance! Each chapter brings easy-to-understand guidance to 'God-defined significance' and hope by challenging the reader to take a solid look at life from God's perspective.
God-significance is a hidden treasure just waiting to be unearthed from our impaired viewpoint. Don't miss the life of service God intends. Learn how to engage life as God's Significant Me!
As I read the introduction of God's Significant Me, one thought almost overwhelmed me, 'This book is going to hit me hard.' In fact, this book has continued to impact me from start to finish. Phil Hays is open about his own thoughts and problems. The content of the book moves swiftly and his writing style is appealing and often humorous. You will enjoy reading and sharing in the struggle from what he describes as 'nothingness' to God's 'somethingness.' Be prepared for the constant use of Scripture with rather blunt applications. However, a consistent teaching is set before us, 'God wants to be, and can be, directly involved in our lives.' As the author remarks, 'This will lead us to God-style significance.' Nothing short of this will work. God's Significant Me will be helpful and useable for both individual and group study. The 'thought questions' and the 'life action points' at the end of each chapter will lead the reader to make self-application of the truth that has been presented. The preacher and the teacher will find an abundance of illustrations in the book, all of which point to the fact that 'God is in the renewing and rebuilding business' and that we need such service. May I offer a suggestion? If you can buy only one book this year, buy a Bible. If you already have a Bible available, buy this book. It will help change your life.
