How do you stay spiritually fed? Unfortunately in many churches, spiritual growth does not happen, so it falls on you to do one of two things. Find a new church or find food yourself. I have been in churches that kept me fed and that can make you lazy, I have been in churches in which you will starve unless you feed yourself. Which is better? Well neither. We don’t have to settle for either or. I want a church that teaches me “How to fish” so to speak.
So this week, I would like to share with you not the be all end all answers, but one of the authors that supplement the Word of God. This author has spoken into my life and inspired me with every page I turn.
Maybe you are not a big reader, but if you find yourself wanting another way to grow your faith in Christ, consider picking up some of these authors. Here is one of my most favorites!
MAX LUCADO– Is an amazing author and pastor at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio Texas. Max has many titles over his prolific career and has a way of engaging he reader. It seems he wrote it with you in mind. If you would like to read some sample chapters, you can do a couple things. You can go to a site such as Amazon or Barnes and Nobles and look up his name and many books will offer a sample chapter to read. Another option is to go to MaxLucado.com and click “READ” toward the top of the screen, and you will be taken to a listing of some of his most recent books.
Although this list is long, it is only a partial list.
I hope that you will pick up one of these titles and let Max point you to God in a personal way.
Keep the Faith and Give it Away!
