Item description for The Awakening by Pieter Swart...
Overview Product Description We are living in a time when Christians are running on empty. The reason is simple: we have replaced the abiding life in Christ Jesus with trying to live this Christian life in our own strength and ability. We have changed our focus from the spiritual to the natural. Only one person could ever have lived the Christian life, and His name is Jesus Christ. If He is not the center and source of our lives, then we can forget about living the Christian life. The new covenant is based on the fact that Jesus has cleansed man from all his sin by His blood. The main purpose for His shed blood was to set man free from the sin nature and give him a righteous nature so that God Himself could come to take residence in man. Pieter Swart was born and raised in South Africa, where he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ at the age of twenty-three. In 1986, Pieter married his wife, Linda, and they have two daughters: Maryke and Salome. In 1987, Pieter and Linda planted their first church. From 1988 to 2001, they were involved in church planting and pastoring several churches in South Africa. In 2002, the Lord called Pieter to station himself in Canada, from where he is called to reach out to the nations with the Good News of the Kingdom. Through the teaching ministry of Pieter and Linda, people come to the understanding of how to receive from God. Pieter also has a heart to see pastors breaking through in their communities.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Awakening?
already perfect in Christ Nov 9, 2008
This book is an amazing read for anyone who struggles with the idea of having to be perfect for God. Pieter hits the nail on the head when he writes about Christians not entering into their true purpose with God because we are so focused on our works. Pieter's focus on God's grace helped me realize that I don't have to perform for God, I simply have to believe and have faith because I have already been made perfect by Christ. "You already have everything you need in Christ, you just need to understand that fact in your mind and believe it in your heart".
