I’ve been a Christian for 15 years.  I’ve always avoided the word theology.  I did not understand it and it scared me.   That is until I came face to face with “Practical Theology For Women.”  This book helps you discover what theology really is.  Why we need to know what theology is and how to apply it to our lives.  It also leads us how to live a life theologically.

Do you personally feast on God’s Word daily?  Or do you find one word or nugget and choose to survive on it daily, weekly, monthly, so on…  Don’t settle for an appetizer, pull up a chair and enjoy a theological feast daily.  I know what you are thinking, you don’t have time, I am not in ministry, I am not a Bible student, etc.  Pick up a copy of this book “Practical Theology For Women.  How Knowing God Makes A Difference In Our Daily Lives” by Wendy Horger Alsup and find out you do have time and how to gain wisdom and knowledge from the Word yourself.  Don’t be spoon-fed God’s Word anymore.  Feed yourself.

Do you say you believe one thing and your actions differ?  We say we believe, trust God, but then we speak doubt and seek to find answers on our own apart from God.

Quote “To say we have faith in Jesus while living

a life characterized by anxiety

and worry is to deny Him by our actions, if not our words”

The Biblical definition of faith: is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Without faith it is impossible to please God.  Anyone who comes to God must believe and we must know what we believe.  We must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.  So when was the last time you earnestly sought Him?  Seeking, Sought is a verb so it requires an action on our part.

The ancients were sure, they were certain, they were confident.   But sure of what?  Certain of what?

Heb 11:6 ESV

“And without faith it is impossible to please him,

for whoever would draw near to God must

believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

They believed that He existed and that He rewards those who earnestly sought Him.  We must have NO doubt whatsoever about God and His existence.  He is real and He is trustworthy.  He is in control.

So don’t delay grab your very own copy today and find out exactly what the definition of theology is and how it is beneficial to your personal walk with the Lord.

Until Next Time,
