Product Description

No matter how strong we claim our faith in God is, when life is hard, it all comes down to resolve. Do we really believe what we say we believe? And does what we profess with our lips actually show up in our everyday actions? Both challenging and encouraging, Resolved unpacks ten life-impacting resolutions every follower of Jesus Christ must make in order to stand strong in the shifting sands of our culture. If you want your life to boldly declare that God is real and alive and powerful and risen from the dead, Resolved will show you how--even when it's hard.

Publisher's Description

Ten Practical Resolutions to Stand Strong in the Shifting Sands of Culture

We all face seasons in our lives when our circumstances seem out of our control and all the forces in this world seem against us. We become discouraged and afraid. We are tempted to give up. No matter how strong we claim our faith in God is, when life is hard, it all comes down to resolve. Do we really believe what we say we believe? And does what we profess with our lips make it beyond intellectual assent and into our everyday actions?

Both challenging and encouraging, Resolved unpacks ten life-impacting resolutions that every follower of Jesus Christ must make in order to stand strong in the shifting sands of our culture. It helps readers who long to exhibit authentic lives understand and eliminate the disconnect between what we say we believe and how we live. And it offers biblical strategies for change that will allow us to stand strong--no matter what.

    We are facing an epidemic in the church today, AbuJamra writes. There is a deep disconnect between what Christians say we believe and how we live, and it's threatening to destroy us. (12-13) What we need, she says, is resolve, biblical resolve that's motivated by a changed life and transformed heart that longs to please and glorify God. (15)

    There are ten resolutions every believer must make, she says, to stand strong today. They are areas where we must decide whether we will live by the truth or not. She uses stories of Bible characters and from her own life to illustrate her principles.

    Subjects about which readers are asked to resolve include belief about God and His goodness, receiving and giving God's love, obeying God even when it is not convenient, yielding rights to Jesus, speaking up for the gospel, giving cheerfully and not holding back, choosing to be in authentic community, practicing gratitude, living in hope knowing God is in control, and allowing the peace of Christ to rule the heart.

    Abujamra writes, If you're serious about changing your world for Christ, and if you're serious about living what you say you believe, then it's time to resolve to yield to God in every detail of your life in the big things and the small. (87) That goes for eating choices and television watching as much as a choice of career or spouse.

    I think the important words in the above quote are if you're serious. If you are serious about your Christian life, this book will give you good teaching and encouragement to make these ten commitments and work at living them out. It involves radical choices. Unless you're ready to really carry through on them, this will just be another book you will put on your shelf. Unfortunately, there were no discussion questions included as this would be a good book for a group study.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    I had no idea who Lina Abujamra was when I picked up this book. That was my loss, but shes definitely on my radar now. Shes a doctor---MD type---that has the time and energy to write. She also maintains an active blog and a speaking ministry. Check this site out in a minute. www.livingwithpower.org Theres even some freebies available. What about this book?

    After admitting that good intentions dont get it done she says this, No matter how strong we claim our faith in God is, when life is hard it all comes down to resolve. Do we really believe what we say we believe? (15) Her writing is clear, direct, and spot on. Her doctor side comes through in her narratives when she cuts to the chase, goes for the root cause, rather than treating just the symptoms. Gotta love that! I appreciate it anyway. But the style isnt without compassion. Some of her topics are belief, obedience, yielding, giving, joy. It doesnt stop there, but Ill let you see what I didnt name. If you take this book seriously, you will find changes occurring in your life. Changes that touch you and those around you.

    Heres an example of one of her resolve statements. RESOLVED: that I will daily give up my rights and say yes to Jesus in big things and small, even when I feel like saying no, confident that surrender is the pathway to joy. (101) She knows that this cannot happen from her own strength, in case that thought popped into your mind.

    Get a copy of this book. Read it, and then see if resolve might be something more important than you thought.

    Yes, I recommend this book.

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

    By definition to be resolved is The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination and that is exactly as I would say is being characterized in the latest book by Lina AbuJamra. Resolved is the kind of book that needs to gifted, shared, devoured by all the masses in order for all the Christians to stay on course. I know many lose themselves with all of the digital media sources and from time to time the determination of being godly can be side tracked along the way. AbuJamra describes in beautiful detail the 10 resolutions we need to have to be strong Christians, faithful Christians. Believers that are doers can be one of the hardest constitutions to keep in this time and life of ours. My goodness I loved AbuJamra's message and can say that I will be on the lookout for her next books. I received a copy for this review from Baker Books and all opinions are my own.
