SO WISH I COULD JUST COPY THE WHOLE BOOK FOR YOU!
Being a Christian is more than just going to church on Sundays....it is a way of life.
"7-days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of your life."
Using personal stories Brad Wilcox shows us the ways we can increase our becoming more Christian... our becoming more like Christ.
Simple, yet sometimes hard, practices that will shape us into who we were meant to be.
* Live life with a sense of urgency and a sense of integrity.
* Never check your religion at the door.
* Become trusting and happy like a child.
* Face your people fears.
* and MORE
I REALLY LOVED this idea:
"Just as the earth went through 7 days of creation, we must also go through 7 days of re-creation...a process of being formed, divided, enlightened, beautified, and filled with life."
It is time to take a stand!
Let this book help you become a 7-day Christian!
