Be The Message {Book Review}


Be The Message
by Kerry and Chris Shook

About the book:
The gospel is not a well-crafted sermon. It is a life well lived. It is you. Drawn from the book Be the Message, this thirty-day devotional will help you cultivate your life message and live it out. 
Over the course of a life-changing month, you will learn h ow the messes in your life can become a door of hope, discover new ways to love those in front of you, and find out how God is calling you to take a stand in the world. 
Using Scripture, illustrations, and practical action steps, the Be the Message Devotional can bring you to a deeper understanding of how your life can make a difference and be the gospel to the world.

How will God live out His message through you?
Each day’s reading is short and to-the-point. The daily reading includes sections called: Open Yourself to a dynamic encounter with God, Open God’s Word to hear God’s message, Open Your Mind to understand God’s message here and now, Open Your Heart to the divine whisper, Open Your Life to God’s transforming power, Open Your Arms to a world that needs to receive God’s incarnate message through you.

So many people have a desire to change the world but quickly get discouraged when they fall short {we all fall short y'all}. This devotional helps you to take the steps each day to change the world around you! Start with your corner of the world for 30 days.
