What does it mean to believe in Jesus? Not just believe in Jesus, but actually believe what He said--and shape our lives around that truth? How would that affect the choices we make? The way we see the world? The way we conduct ourselves with other Christians?
In Believing Jesus, Lisa Harper answers these questions by looking at lives of the believers in the book of Acts and how Jesus' command to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth forever shaped their lives. You will read stories of how Peter transformed from "Benedict Arnold" to "Billy Graham" when the power of the Holy Spirit came over him. How the first community of believers was a place like the beloved Cheers of sitcom fame where everyone knew each others' names and needs. How it cost Stephen and other early believers their very lives to follow Christ. And how Paul's case proves that God's grace can change the worst of sinners into saints, making us willing to have our lives interrupted by God and truly bloom wherever we are planted. Today, we are faced with the same decisions the early church faced. Will we, like them, truly believe the words of Jesus and allow them to transform every part of our lives?
