Item description for Reduce Me to Love: Unlocking the Secret to Lasting Joy by Joyce Meyer...
Overview Rediscover the Power of Love!
In trying to keep up with today¿s hectic style of living, it can be easy to lose sight of what is at the very heart of your life as a believer¿God¿s love for you and His command that you reach out in love to others.
Bestselling author Joyce Meyer points out, ¿You can¿t give away something you don¿t have!¿ Many people who are trying to walk in God¿s love are doing so in their own strength. They can¿t demonstrate God¿s love because they never stop to receive it themselves.
In this powerful book, Joyce Meyer provides biblical insights and draws from her personal experiences to illustrate how God changed her life and to introduce you to a life filled with God¿s love¿love that not only blesses you, but also motivates you to love others.
Because God is love (1 John 4:16), loving and being loved is what makes life worth living. Once you learn how to truly accept God¿s unconditional love for you and walk in love like Jesus did, you will discover the sweet peace, deep joy, and unfailing strength that come with being willing to say, ¿Lord, Reduce Me to Love!¿

This is a life changing book Mar 28, 2007
I have read this book about 5 times now, and there is just so much in there you cant possibly get it all with just one read. This book as well as some other Joyce Meyers books have really changed my life. She is a top notch teacher and writer.
Great read...Recommended to all! Aug 28, 2006
Overall this book is outstanding...the lessons taught in it are directly from the BIBLE so you can't go wrong!
There are basic rules of the universe,yet nowadays in our society there's very FEW who follow them...very few who give out unconditional love to ALL people at all times(especially without a selfish motive)and even FEWER who seek GOD and follow in the footsteps of GOD's will.
This is definately a book to be re-read over and over through the years and especially taught to our children as to make the next generation at PEACE rather than WAR.If only EVERYONE followed this simple advice and lived through SPIRIT rather than EGO,we would NEVER be at war again...Not with family,friends,spouses,children,and especially NOT with the WORLD and NOT with our own selves!...because GOD IS LOVE AND LOVE CONQUERS ALL!! GOOD WILL ALWAYS OVERCOME EVIL!! The more people that practice it, the closer we will be to finding peace on earth!:)
CAVEAT:The only thing I found "wrong" with this book is how she mentions that we shouldnt be part of any clique/group/religion because that "DIVIDES" us, yet then she continues to state how '"we Christians" are powerless as long as we are filled with prejudice'and "We Christians" etc. yet NOT ALL WHO READ THIS BOOK ARE CHRISTIANS! So I found that to be DIVIDING in itself!!(hypocritical) The BIBLE was NOT written only for the Christan people, It was written for ALL MANKIND,as majority of this book was taken from Psalms in the BIBLE. Therefore,I had to take 1 point off for that!
But besides that,the book is a wonderful read and I recommend it to all!
High Praise for Joyce Meyer !!! Mar 8, 2004
"One morning as I got up and went downstairs to make coffee, I felt God tug at my heart to make Dave a fruit salad. To be honest I did not want to make a fruit salad. The Lord spoke to my heart that serving God was actually serving him. I obediently made the fruit salad."
Reduce Me To Love is one of Joyce Meyer's favourites that I've heard being talked about for some time now. It is no wonder that when I was blessed by a dear friend with his book as a gift, I was on cloud nine, and anxious to finish everything I was reading just to start this book.
This book teaches us in great detail about love; a small word with such a deep and profound meaning. It is the new commandment which Jesus gave his disciples: to love one another and by doing so, prove their discipleship.
Mrs. Meyer draws on her personal experiences as she demonstrates the many respects of love and it's purest motives. What stays indelibly in my mind was how Jesus uses himself as an example in today's world. Whatever good deeds we do for one another, we actually do for Him and in the same light if we treat our brother with disdain we do it also to Him. We cannot get away from it, Jesus convicts us in the very name of love as he encourages us to walk in the Spirt. I would like to encourage all of those who love reading Christian literature to find this book fast and get back to loving God; the One who first loved us, before the foundation of the world. Bless someone soon with this brilliant book. Reviewed by Heather Marshall Negahdar (SUGAR-CANE)
You cannot give away what you do not have! Aug 4, 2003
That was one of the key lessons I learned when reading this book. I am in a relationship with a man who never recieved unconditional love. If anyone has tried to love a difficult man you know it takes a special anointing. This book helped me to unerstand how to best love others. The important thing Meyers stresses is putting the value of people above the value of replaceable objects. She teaches that love requires one to exhibit forbearance and preferential treatment toward others. Love will cause you to take a step back in order to put someone else's need before your own, yes even those difficult to love people. This book will challenge you to look at the way you show love and teach you how to live love.
New Life Feb 8, 2001
I bought this book over a week ago. When I started reading it I just did not want to put it down, and when I was finished I was wishing there was more. So, I started reading it over again. Joyce Meyer has truely made a difference in my life since I started following her ministry and this book adds more flavor to the pie. Love, is one thing i needed in my life, to show to others and she really lays out the road map here. Thank you Joyce Meyer for making the right choices in your life so that people like me can change theirs.
