Finally! A straightforward guide to how to do life as a Christian. Book stores are jam-packed with books about priorities, juggling life, and fitting God into your schedule. The God First Life by Stovall Weems is simple, direct, and clarifying.
In his first few chapters, Pastor Stovall Weems introduces us to the idea of a God First Life. In this life, we trade anxiety and chaos for order and blessing. Throughout the rest of the book, he lays the framework from scripture of what our life should look like. My favorite chapters are on the priority of community. The reality in the Christian life is the need for relationships. We need them to get through times of growth, change, difficult situations, and healing.
Stovall Weems truly addresses all of the necessities of the Christian life in this book. He gives helpful guidance in areas including worship, prayer, and devotion time. I found myself taking notes, and loving all the golden nuggets in every chapter. Another highlight in this book for me was in the chapter on serving. He says, “Serving is not something we do, serving is who we are.” Weems goes on to give a Self-test to Servants and it is definitely challenging.
I highly recommend this book to new and old Christ Followers alike. It would be perfect for new believer packs at your church. The God First Life is an encouraging, life changing read.
