CatharinaAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Not just for GrandparentsOctober 31, 2021CatharinaAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In this book "Jesus Followers" written by Anne Lotz Graham and her daughter Rachel Ruth, they compare our lives to a relay race and how it is our privilege to pass the baton of truth that leads to faith in Christ to our children and grandchildren. If we do not have children, there are others in our circle of influence that we can pass the baton to. They also write how doing this is intentional, but happens in the everyday moments of our lives.
It's also about how we share the gospel not because it's a sense of duty or obligation, but it's because of our love for Jesus.
Rachel-Ruth shares her stories of growing up and how her parents and grandparents helped and encouraged her through her tough times. She has the "elite godly" family... her grandparents being Billy and Ruth Graham and mother Anne Graham Lotz. I'm thinking, I'm not even close to being a parent or grandparent like her family, no way could I ever measure up! Why would I read this? But through this book we see them as vulnerable, with imperfections and just being "normal" helping us as parents to see our kids through God's eyes - as beautiful treasures with immeasurable worth no matter how old the are.
One of the overall themes is about how important it is to know God's Word ourselves and how our kids observe us as we lean on it and learn from it. They are watching us!
The book is divided in 4 sections: Our witness, Our worship, Our walk with God and Our work for God. With every chapter ending in a thought-provoking question to help create a legacy in each area - always going back to God's Word as our source of wisdom. One of my favorite quotes I read by Ruth Graham is, "The bible is a sure guide in an unsure world."
I recommend this book highly because it is so needed in today's world. It is well written and easy to read.
I received a free e-book copy of Jesus Followers in return for a review of this book.
