Powering Up

Powering Up
Oh, no! The electronics are malfunctioning again. Everyone knows what to do. Just power off the iPhone, cable box, etcetera and then power it back up. Normally, everything resets and is just fine. How great would life be if whenever we do something wrong we could power ourselves off and then back up? This is the very premise that inspired Powering Up: The fulfillment and Fruit of a God-Fueled Life by Pastor Jack Graham. In his book, Pastor Graham illustrates how to rely less on ourselves (powering down) and more on the power of God (powering up) to transform our lives and situations.

Anyone who has been lucky enough to attend Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas can attest to the fact that Jack Graham is a powerful speaker, Bible teacher and man of God. His charisma and teaching style are conveyed as powerfully in his books as they are from the pulpit. Using stories from his own life, as well as the lives of parishioners and famous individuals, Pastor Graham integrates biblical stories to deliver powerful lessons on how to pray, being bold and sharing God with the world, and in producing fruit by living the life you were meant to live. Interwoven in each chapter is a section called Powerpoint which presents pertinent questions to think about. This would make the book perfect for small groups.

If you, or someone you know, has drifted away from God and you need an inspirational book to help you get back on path, or if you just want an uplifting book to read, I would highly recommend Powering Up.

This book is available from online retailers such as Amazon.com
