If youre ready to rise up and live out your purpose in life - then Be Light: Shining Gods Beauty, Truth, and Hope into a Darkened World by Samuel Rodriguez is for you. Pastor Samuel Rodriguez shows us how to go beyond just wearing the Christian label, and actually live out Gods call to Be Light and influence the world.
Pastor Sam explains how to embody and emit Gods light in a complex, darkened world by understanding the remarkable complexities of light. Christians who find themselves overwhelmed and resenting new cultural norms that label us as irrelevant extremists need to read Be Light.
This book is also for Christian Millennials, like me, who want to throw off whatever life or hell has put upon our faith. Be Light challenges us to impact American Christianity and our culture in bold, but biblically sound ways. Pastor Sam cautions us in sobering words, The Bible makes it clear that we are subject to losing our faith unless we are intentional in sustaining it.
Be Light provides a blueprint that guides us as we build platforms of influence in school, at work, in every sphere of our life to share our light with others. This is no small task, but as Pastor Sam admonishes there is no such thing as comfortable Christianity.
Be Light Shining God's Beauty, Truth, and Hope into a Darkened world by Samuel Rodriguez is an amazing book that I could not put down.
Be Light will take you on an intellectual and spiritual journey to be all that God has called you to be, a LIGHT for Jesus to push back and defeat the darkness that is prevalent in our world today.
Be Light will inspire, encourage and equip you to take your place in being that City on a hill that cannot be hidden. A LIGHT that will bring healing and revival.
I was truly impacted by chapter 23 where Pastor Samuel explained how when God removes something in your life, He always replaces it with something better. Something that God gives you to shine better for his glory.
