When Christians answer God's call they are often unprepared for what that call entails. God's call typically comes with great joy and anticipation but is followed by confusion and disillusionment as trials and difficulties arise. Yet God never promised an easy road of personal comfort and ease. What God promises is a life of total transformation and a stripping of the former self in pursuit of godliness.
Stripped is about understanding the stripping process that must take place for sold out Christians to be used by God to build His kingdom. It is about the surrendered and broken Christian life, the life that God uses to accomplish His purposes through every one of His followers.
In it you will:
- Find how to endure the stripping process
- Learn what must be stripped from the Christian's life
- Be inspiried by Biblical and real life examples who were victoriously stripped
Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5What happens after accepting God's call--January 15, 2014Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Saying yes to God is easy, right? After all, we want to be obedient. We want to fulfill God's calling and purpose for our lives. However, soon after we nod our heads in agreement, the process of transformation begins and we start questioning God's call thinking that after we have it all figured out, the Christian life should be easy. Once we find our calling and purpose, saying yes to God will mean our life will get easier. Yeah. Right.
Lina Abujamra, author of "Stripped", learned the hard way that God doesn't always work in the way we expect or in our timeframe. Sometimes He puts us through a time of testing and preparation. In her book, she imparts the knowledge she gained from God's process so that we can be better prepared when we say yes to God.
If you have said yes to God and are wondering what happens next, you will want to read "Stripped". If you have accepted God's call on your life and wondering why life didn't all of a sudden become magical, you will definitely want to read "Stripped". If you haven't found your purpose, or are in limbo about accepting God's call, you will probably want to read "Stripped".
The best part about "Stripped" is the way it is organized. The lists such as "What keeps you from hearing God's call" and how God strips us of pride are invaluable. There are lots of lists containing gems of wisdom. I appreciate that Abujamra didn't keep her experiences to herself so we can benefit from the things she learned as she walked in obedience. I'm glad she stepped out in faith to write a roadmap to accepting the challenge of God's call on our lives.
