You will not have all the answers, but you will know that life reflecting the Light has meaning that outlives mere mortal existence. This book will lead you on a journey into radical transformation. Life that reflects the holiness and love of Christ requires more than a minor attitude adjustment. This journey is lifelong, not a moment, a week, a month, or a year.
’Come!’ God’s invitation is simple, but the barriers that exist between ourselves and a holy Father are vast. He has invited each of us, no matter who we may be, to an intimate fellowship with Him. Coauthors Gary Cockerill, Donald Demaray, Steve Harper, and Wes Tracy help Christians understand God’s desire to cross the barriers to closeness. Reflecting God presents a journey to intimacy by recognizing obstacles and developing habits that bring Christians and those around them to a deeper understanding of intimacy and love.Begin the journey toward intimacy with God with this new study celebrating the holy optimism of grace and love. Reflecting God combines the best biblical scholarship of the Wesleyan-Holiness denominations with the opportunity for inner reflection.The Reflecting God pupil book is supplemented with a leader’s guide for Bible study, Sunday School, or small group. Each of these resources provides another opportunity to grow in Christ as a person or as a community.
