This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green digs into “If I Perish, I Perish by Major Ian Thomas to find insights into the meaning of Christian commitment.
Do you recall a moment, a day, or a season when you came to the realization that you knew you would follow the Lord no matter what? I’m not talking about the moment you were saved, but a time later-after you’d experience perhaps some of the valleys of the shadows, after weaning from the milk of the word to meat of it, after realizing that you could do nothing apart from our Savior. A time when you truly understood that no matter the storms, no matter the trials or tribulations, you would not turn away from the Lord. Because being “in Christ” had become as essential to you as the air you breathe.
If you can not recall such a moment, then perhaps today’s showcased book will help you because it provides insights into the true meaning of Christian commitment.
I had the distinct honor of sitting under the teaching of Major Ian Thomas on several occasions during my high school and early college years. He was an engaging speaker who could make even a teenager sit up and listen as he presented solid truth with both profound insight and humor. Deep thoughts translated into practical, relatable lessons of life.
And it is with heartfelt appreciation for Maj. Thomas and his influence on my life that I ask you to come and be a part as we feature, If I Perish, I Perish-Insights into the meaning of Christian Commitment.
