A BOOK REVIEW
When I saw The Jesus Code listed as a book available for me to preview, I jumped at the opportunity for two reasons. The book is intriguing because it shares 52 short devotion-sized but jam-packed messages that answer many intriguing Bible questions. Secondly, I couldn’t pass up a book authored by someone who shares my mother’s maiden name!
I found The Jesus Code by O. S. Hawkins to be a great inspirational and motivational book filled with tremendous outlines and reminders for our spiritual journey. I found it to be reminiscent of readings from my teen years of great authors of the past. Each chapter leaves the reader with simple challenges for the day.
One of my favorite easy to remember outlines from the book:
“Ask God to work WITH you.”
“Ask God to work IN you.”
“Ask God to work THROUGH you.”
A suggested three questions to ask yourself at the end of a worship service:
“Have I seen the Lord in His holiness?”
“Have I seen my own helplessness?”
“Have I seen others’ hopelessness?”
This beautifully bound book published by Thomas Nelson would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves to be challenged in their faith. Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
