Live the life the Father desires
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
In the new book, The Servant Life ($13.99, paperback, 9781969898713), author James H. Mentlow questions people, especially Christians, about what the essence of living should be. Mentlow wants to have confidence that people are not missing the mark by being too caught up in the ACT of living to understand that the Father’s desire is for each person to live as a mirror image of Jesus's life.
Mentlow writes “Our path in The Servant Life has been both walked and laid before us by Jesus Christ!. . . Romans 8:29 gives us our predestined identity. We are pre-determined to be ‘imitators.’ Even as He (Jesus) did, we are to do. This may challenge and make our self-centered souls rebel, but there is already precedent in our daily lives.”
Inside the pages of this book, readers will find a discussion of the following:
Imitation: The assumption of behavior observed in another person (Jesus)
Empathy: Perceiving someone’s feelings and experiences without being told
Sacrifice: To surrender something for the sake of someone else
Humility: To be worthy of a status or position and deny yourself its benefits
Service: To contribute to the welfare of others
Benevolence: The disposition to do good
Commitment: To be obligated or emotionally impelled to the cause of Christ
Redemption: To free someone from captivity by means of ransom
Impact: The force or impression of one person upon another
