Nuggets Of Truth
The Journey Home by Dr Gene Baillie is a powerful personal testimony to the goodness and faithfulness of God. It is the thoughts of the author and his wife as she battles brain cancer. They share what they have learned along the way.
Life is a journey and “God has given you a roadmap… the Holy Bible.” It is God’s instruction manual for life. We would be wise to follow it.
Our attitude will depend on how well we enjoy the journey. There will be roadblocks but God is faithful and He can be trusted.
How big is your God? Do we limit God by our understanding of Him? Have we a big, bold faith? “Don’t be satisfied with a timid faith.”
We need to live out our faith. God asks us not for riches but for a servant heart. “We achieve greatness through service to others.”
We are in a spiritual battle. We need to stand on God’s word. We remember what is important to us. Study your Bible so when tough times come, God’s word pours out of your mouth.
Praising God at all times is vital. We can praise Him through song or through our actions.
The Journey Home is split into thirty chapters, each focusing on different ways to strengthen our faith. There are reflections from Gene Baillie and his wife, Bible passages to back up their statements, and then quotes from others to further strengthen their words. It’s a really powerful book to dive into at any time. It is perfect for a Bible study group or use for individuals.
There are many nuggets of truth but this is my favourite:
“The God of Sundays is also the God of the rest of the week.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
