Lead Serve Love

Publisher's description:
Part inspiration–part application, Lead. Serve. Love. engages and challenges believers to put the gospel into action.

In Lead. Serve. Love., Gregory Lang provides a simple guide for helping the everyday person embark (or continue) their journey to live as Christ lived. There are 100 easy-to-remember, easy-to-follow three-word action sentences followed by a short, thought-provoking description of how to apply and live out the gospel message in today’s world. These practical ideas and supporting scriptures will inspire believers to become true followers of Christ.

My Review:
 First, what a great concept, three words a day to help you become more Christ-like.    A friend of the author refers to it as Three-ology theology.  Some of the sentences are "ask for forgiveness, share good news,  give second chances, and do your share".  The  thoughts behind the sentences are such that anyone reading them would have to honestly admit that they have merit.  Lang however takes it a step further by including Bible verses with each of the 100 sentences backing them up.

Do you share.  We all agree that we should each do our own share.  Lang says that we should do as much as we can in line with our individual blessings and abilities no matter how high or low the task is, even going so far as to propose we do it joyfully.  Good advice for everyone.  But for the Christian, Lang shows how it is more than advice with verses such as Acts 20:34 that tells us to work to take care of our own needs and of those with us, 2 Thessalonians 3:6-9 which tells us not to be lazy and gives examples.

This would be a great daily devotional book for anyone looking to incorporate more of Christ into their daily walk, who want to live it rather than just hear it.  For those who prepare church bulletins, this would be a great resource as well.  If you have kids, include a one liner in their lunches with scripture references.

All in all a great little book to carry with you or begin your day with!  Definitely a thumbs up!
