Journey should come with a warning for the Christian thinking about reading it, particularly if you want to remain in a mundane and ordinary Christian lifestyle. Glenn Sauls has written a compelling and concise roadmap of what it looks like to pursue a revolutionary lifestyle that could change how you look at your life forever. In his first book, Dr. Sauls boldly encourages you to look for key mile markers as you pursue an authentic and revolutionary life in Jesus Christ. While everyone’s journey is unique to them, there are some markers along the way that keep us from severely veering off a path that God has uniquely laid out for each one of us. In researching what is often called the “spiritual journey,” Dr. Sauls found there are volumes of works on this subject, but very few written from a practical Christian perspective. He has identified five key mile markers in the Christian journey that should mark and illuminate the road every Christian is traveling. It starts with having a clear, compelling, catalytic vision for your life, that includes the gifts, passions, abilities, personality, and life experiences that God has uniquely given to each of His incredible creations. Dr. Sauls reminds us that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” with a roadmap burned in our heart by our Creator. Journey flows out of a heart that was tired of mediocrity and imitative Christianity. Why not enjoy the journey that God has designed for you? There is a God-given GPS that is not an option, but is standard equipment for every person. Discover the journey that God has designed for you and, as a result, be prepared to leave a lot of room for God-activity in your life.
