Navigating a God Centred Life
Colin S. Smith
"Expect to be humbled, convicted, challenged, comforted and changed. The heart-warming, inescapable conclusion is that salvation truly comes from the Lord."Read more
Here is a short book to read and give away to a non-Christian friend or acquaintance. Written in the first person, it tells the story of Good Friday from the perspective of the crucified criminal who ask the Lord Jesus to remember him. With a biblically informed imagination, Colin Smith recounts the way this guilty crucified criminal went from condemned cell, via the agony of crucifixion, to the joy of heaven with the Lord Jesus. He imagines the criminal looking back on that last day from the perspective of the eternal security of heaven. He speaks as an eyewitness of the sufferings of Jesus; one who heard His words spoken from the cross. What unfolds is a story of amazing grace. Here was a man with nothing to commend him; with no time to turn over a new leaf; with no record of a new start. He simply turned to the Lord Jesus and asked for mercy. What a demonstration of the truth that whoever comes to Jesus will never be driven away!
This is a book to buy, read and give away. I know of one believer who on reading this book ordered ten and quickly found opportunities to give them away to others, including to his barber. Here in Enfield we have bought a pile and are urging folk to read it before Easter with a view to then passing it on to a friend. Go for it!
In the flyleaf of my Bible I have a quote from Charles Spurgeon, ‘The joy of Jesus is the joy of saving sinners.’ With passion flowing a lifetime of personal evangelism, Bernard Palmer reminds us that the joy of Jesus is to be shared by all His disciples and that being Christlike includes speaking to others of the grace of God. Filled with Scripture and illustrations from history and personal experience, this book is both a challenge and an encouragement to prayerfully seek and seize daily opportunities to speak to others about our Lord Jesus.Read more
