Psalms 145:18 states “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Prayer plays a crucial part in the lives of Christians everywhere. To help individuals pray and reflect on God comes the new devotional, “Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength: A Devotional on the Two Great Commandments” (published by WestBow Press) by Lynne Sandsberry.
“Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength” is a devotional built on a single theme: responding in obedience to the Bible’s two great commandments, to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength,” and to “love your neighbor as yourself.”
“It’s a devotional for God, rather than for us,” says Sandsberry.
Each daily reading addresses the theme of loving God fully – the issues involved and the practical steps to be taken. They describe how this love can be, and has been, put into practice, complete with illustrations from scripture and from modern life.
“Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength” was written for a church-going audience with a general knowledge of the Bible and its famous events, but doesn’t assume readers are familiar with particular bible verses. Fresh metaphors and fresh phraseology illustrate scriptural principles, and the book also contains discussion questions.
