For some, the Christian life is likened to a gentle ride on an up escalator. We step on and gracefully ride up into realms of spiritual maturity and godliness with no effort beyond a light hand on the rail to hold us steady.
The reality is very often so different. There are many metaphors for the life of faith in the Bible. It is compared to a race, a battle, a journey or a seedling struggling to grow in adverse conditions. These pictures conjure an image of struggle, a need for focus and determination, a willingness to make sacrifices. Our relationship with God, like any relationship, needs investment.
The Lyfe Journal from the Bible Society will catch your imagination, provoke your spirit and get you praying. There are stories of people whose entire lives have been shaped by prayer, explorations of some of the prayers recorded in the Bible, ideas and resources to take away and use. For many of us, life is busy and full and we simply don’t have time to work through weighty tomes on spiritual matters. Lyfe Journal is easily digestible, pithy, concise wisdom, with plenty of space to make notes, jot down thoughts and record your ideas and responses. Use it as a springboard to launch you into a more prayerful way of living. Contributors include Charlie Cleverly, Paula Gooder and George Muller.
