Why isn't life everything we expected it to be? And why doesn't our faith resolve our frustrations and problems?
Kevin Myers, the founding pastor of 12Stone Church, a congregation of more than 30,000 active attenders near Atlanta, believes the reason we don't experience a transformed life is that we fail to grow up spiritually. We focus on developing physically, intellectually, emotionally, and financially, yet our faith remains immature and anemic.
In this powerful new book, Myers offers a deep yet simple roadmap to a grown-up faith through
- understanding the whole context of the Bible,
- developing spiritual intimacy with God,
- and gratefully embracing holy obedience.
As you understand the Bible and the big picture of God's story with humanity, you begin to find answers to life's most compelling questions. As you begin to understand God more, your longing and ability to experience spiritual intimacy with him increases, as does your desire to obey what God asks of you and your ability to follow through. This is the way to the bigger life, a life even better than you expected--or even dreamed possible.
