'Jesus Lives' by Sarah Young - Book Review

Buzz this

In my opinion, cultivating the habit of reading a Christian devotional is very important. And using a quality devotional book is essential. It is unique when a devotional is so effective that it makes such an impact on the reader that he/she wants to translate that energy into action and life change. ‘Jesus Lives,’ by Sarah Young, does just that.

This book, which is subtitled ‘Seeing His Love in Your Life,’ is comprised of 180 devotionals, and they are written as from the hand of Jesus. His genuine love and compassion for His people emanates from the page. There is a list of topics that one can reference that coincide with themes in Jesus’ life, such as Adversity, Faith, His Sufficiency, Joy, and Victorious Living. Page One of each theme is the words that are meant to come from Jesus; Page Two includes pertinent Scripture verses.

An important component of Christian living is to be aware of how unique and how loved you are in the eyes of the Lord. This lovely book builds that up in the believer. And I think the Holy Spirit can use those sentiments to speak to the heart of the person who does not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus.

This book is beautiful inside and out. It is a handy pocket size with a lovely padded front cover. It is perfect to give as a gift to that person who is looking to grow in his or her faith, and who wants to be encouraged or strengthened in their Walk with the Lord.

My husband Fred and I have the habit of reading either the Bible or a book that is God-honoring before we retire for the evening. I think we found the book that we’ll be using for a while!

You can find this lovely book at Amazon.com or Christianbook.com.
