Real Change: Becoming more like Jesus everyday
Every honest Christian knows the need for change. But how to get there? How do you move forward from struggles both big and small? And how does our faith in God impact our everyday thoughts, feelings, and actions? This six-session small group resource gives participants an opportunity to reflect on one particular area in their lives and then to learn more about how God changes us to become more like Jesus. All of us struggle to love God and those around us, but God has promised to keep working on us. And God always keeps his promises. The change that his gospel produces will make your life and your relationships truly beautiful. This self-contained resource with Leaders Notes will encourage small group participants to understand and apply a biblical view of change to their lives and relationships. Real Change: Becoming More Like Jesus in Everyday Life is based on the CCEF model of change from David Powlisons course, Dynamics of Biblical Change. The easy-to-use six lesson format and included leaders guide, guides participant's toward an honest discussion of there own struggles while providing an understanding of how a relationship with Christ brings change. Topics addressed include understanding how we typically respond to trouble, how the cross of Christ brings comfort, help, and change, and how we can grow to be like Christ in the hardest circumstances.
My thoughts: This is a great set of six sessions for small group study that is based on the diagram of "The Dynamics of Biblical Change" course offered by the CCEF. It is a well thought out course that will help study groups focus on change using the "three tree diagram". It's a nice, concise study that works well with scripture. It does just focus on a small picture of our walk with the Lord, but it isn't meant to be all encompassing, making it a good study group book.
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
