STORM


STORM Hearing Jesus For The Times We Live In By Jim Cymbala with Jennifer Schuchmann What is happening in the church in America today? Is the light of Jesus that we shine before people, growing dark? Has a storm cut us off from our power source? Is the church of Christ disappearing into a dark night? These are the questions we, as Christians, need to be asking ourselves. Quoting Jim from the book:
"I believe followers of Jesus in America are on the cusp of something horrible. I, and many others, see the early warning signs all around. You may see them too. I want you to consider these specifically." He then explains these three warning signs, 1. We're not as big as we think, 2. Personal transformation is rare, and 3. Biblical literacy is declining In this book, Jim Cymbala addresses what is taking place in America today. Jim offers help to weather the storm and how we need to get God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit back into our church services and our lives. He shares experiences of people who have done this. In their own words, they describe what has taken place in their own lives. Some of the things talked about are disturbing and unsettling, but are things that we need to be aware of. In America, we have pushed God out, some of our preachers are more concerned about the number of people attending church then telling them about Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I found this book easy reading and thought provoking, a book with a lot to offer all Christians to live and share the light of Jesus and how we need to keep the light from being darkened by the storm. Jesus is the light, keep that light lit, keep the storm from darkening that light.
