Where you are going is not as important as who you go with. Imagine that Jesus walks up to you, right now, and asks you to follow him. He doesn’t tell you where and he doesn’t tell you what it will entail. He just asks you to come. Will you say yes?
Bestselling author and Proverbs 31 speaker Suzanne Eller shows how, when you say yes, you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the worries, and excuses. You take a step toward the One; who promises to delight and surprise, who will transform who you are, how you live, and how you impact the world.
Eller creates a parallel between us and the 12 disciples whom Jesus chose to follow him thousands of years ago. We are reminded that they are real men, with real issues, real problems, who dropped everything they knew to follow Jesus. The disciples struggled with doubt, hesitation, questions, and wrong choices, much like we do today. Eller shows us why Jesus chose each of the disciples.
Eller challenges and encourages the reader to see themselves at the 13th disciple and to move forward with clarity and courage. Can you hear Jesus say “Come with Me,” with fresh ears?
A great summer study may be short but full of truth. I received a copy of the book from Bethany House Publisher for my review.
