BTW Yahweh our Elohim is not Christian. Christian is now defined as to be Christ Like. How can Yahweh be like Christ when really Christ is trying to be like Him? Further, the scriptures state that there are seven churches (i.e. religions). He is not a respector of persons. Yahweh wants those who are willing to sacrifice their desires to please Him. Yashuah the Messiah did not call himself a Christian and you probably cannot find it in the scriptures because we were called saints, brothers, sons and other familial terms of endearment. The word Christian was made up well after the death of the messiah. It came from the word cretins which means ignorant ones or idiots. It was to make fun of beleivers. I prefer to be called saint. Galatians 5:22 will help all get through.
Should be of interest to a Christian reader to note that the author has denied that God is Christian. A principal I once worked with at a Christian school would use this book for devotions at times....I guess she didn't know.
This book can change how you view God, how you value yourself, and how you pray. Yes, it can change your life!
Short enough to read in one sitting but substantial enough to challenge you to go beyond your comfort zone, it teaches Bible-based principles that are emphasized by anecdotes that will make it stick to your heart.
I will never tire of reading this book. It is one of my all-time favorites - as Bruce Wilkinson is an excellent teacher.
The one thing that I would recommend before picking up this book is to seek God first. The Bible says that the prayer of a righteous man avails much. And to have the righteousness that Jabez so obviously had above all the others that God would favor him...can be had through the salvation that is in Christ alone. That, I believe, is the greatest blessing - which the author himself declares. Read the excerpt. Enjoy the ride!
