Focus On Jesus
The Road To Renewal by Kirby Lee Davis is a Christian novel that certainly messes with your head. I enjoyed it, although at times I found it hard to get my head around the action – what was real? What was imagined? The novel was certainly realistic as it showed the battles we all have inside our head as our spiritual side wars with our flesh side.
When life hits hard and keeps hitting, what do you do? “It’s [the cross] the only hope I’ve got.” Sometimes we find ourselves clinging on and just surviving more than coping. It’s at times like these that we really need to keep focused on the cross and remember what Jesus did for us.
Life throws choices at us. We have decisions to make, paths to choose and consequences that follow. We need to fix our eyes on Jesus and try to respond how He would. If we mess up, we must not beat ourselves up but learn the lessons, forgive ourselves and move on.
Within the novel there is much Godly advice and lessons to be learnt. My favourite is “I don’t follow Jesus for reward. We follow Christ because we love Him.”
This is a book that needs to be read more than just once as I believe that even more Godly insight will be revealed on subsequent readings.
A word of caution… there is a character who is troubled and is not a Christian who pops up briefly and does use a four letter word that some readers may not like.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
