Created for eternity Aug 31, 2005
CREATED TO BE GOD'S FRIEND is an exploration into the life of Abraham. By developing an intimate relationship with God, similar to that of Abraham, we come to a dimension of understanding, by faith. Children of God must totally release their lives to Him to allow inexpressible joy and peace to prevail. Blackaby points out that Abraham is the man God refers to as his friend (James 1:23) and God used his awesome powers to shape Abraham's life not just for a time but for eternity. By studying the lessons conveyed in CREATED TO BE GOD'S FRIEND, it was Blackaby's intent that the reader would see Abraham's life from God's perspective as well as Abraham's response to God. Then analyze how these lessons are manifested in our daily lives and help us to see our purpose.
CREATED TO BE GOD'S FRIEND is not a book to be taken lightly. It's lessons are comprehensive and provide further insight into the reader's personal relationship with God. Each of the thirteen lessons can also be used on a stand-alone basis for personal or group study. Mr. Blackaby's use of clear language, relevant examples and summary questions at the end of each chapter makes CREATED TO BE GOD'S FRIEND a study tool that I found to be very valuable.
