Our desire is to be wanted by someone; to be picked to be on someone’s team when we were a child or to be chosen for a special award or a dream job. Heather Holleman makes the case that even when we have received what we wanted or achieved a great deal, we still are longing for acceptance or the desire to feel chosen. That longing is because as Christians we have already been chosen by an extraordinary God to lead an extraordinary life. We are called to go deeper in our walk with Jesus.
The book is divided into three sections: Your present situation, The seven invitations, and What if I say yes? Each chapter has questions for reflection entitled “Your Next Step.” This is a very practical book which guides the reader into understanding how the simple concept of being chosen by Christ helps to focus on the who and not the where, when and how of life. Knowing we are chosen helps us to remember that Jesus’s presence with us is all that matters.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
