"The Life That I Live" is written as an eye opener for the present and next breed of Christians, a prayer that the life that they live will meet that of what Christ Jesus has in mind and taught. It also aims to nurture Christians, especially new born again Christians on the lifestyle they ought to live in the new family they have joined.
One basic problem with Christendom is the fact that there are so many ‘babies’. When people become born again, they need to study and understand the requirements, promises and lifestyle of the master they have decided to follow. This book is purposed to help you do one thing, “the careful living”.
Pastor Gladstone Akabuah is the Senior Pastor of a growing church in Oshiye (Bortianor), Ghana. He is also the Administrator of Sponsorship for the NGO Rescue Aid Mission. Gladstone is a dynamic young man, with incredible vision and the energy to see things to their fulfilment. In the years that I have known him he has studied hard and achieved much.
Together we are partners in building the church (Mossvale Community Sanctuary) and the Church. I see his Pastoral heart and how he goes the extra mile and thinks nothing of sacrifice for the needy around him in Ghana. As a Pastor and teacher, all knowledge and wisdom gleaned from the Word of God is not just for his personal growth, but food for the extended family of God, as well.
This book reflects Gladstone’s heart for others, and the experience of the power of the Holy Spirit within him as “a form of joy and fear gripped my bones” enlightening scripture to his mind. That we would live the right life, the pure religion, the “careful living”. Chapter by chapter he unpicks from Matthew 5 what our life should – and shouldn’t contain. So read on, learn and relearn the pitfalls of anger, loose talk, lust, adultery, divorce, retaliation, worry, judging - and embrace forgiveness, reconciliation, integrity, love, giving, prayer and fasting, and seeking God’s Kingdom. - Pastor Hugh Chalk.
