The New Book By

Author of 'The Lights In The Windows' And 'Churchified Or Sanctified?'

The Cross life is a life lived with an ever-increasing awareness and appreciation for Christ and His finished work on our behalf. This awareness and appreciation is most keenly realized as we gather together on Sunday mornings. We sing, we worship, we praise, and most importantly we hear the Word. We leave God's house rejoicing, and then--boom! Like an avalanche, at times, the realities of this life come upon us and the glories of Sunday morning become all but a distant memory; 'What did the pastor speak about on Sunday anyway?' Trying to live off of Sunday's glory will leave you exhausted; there are six days in between that must be lived out. As believers, how do we maintain a 'Cross-life attitude' in the face of trials, tests and struggles? Proper faith? Absolutely. But proper faith needs to propel proper sight, and a proper attitude. In the new book by Michael Jakes, you will find practical inspiration that will encourage you to keep Christ at the forefront your life, dealing with many of the issues that confront us all, holding on to the truth that 'Christ is our life' (Colossians 3:4).
