I got the call last Fall, as soon as I arrived at the Indianapolis International Airport. I was speaking at a church in Indianapolis over the weekend.
The call was from my sister to tell me that my grandmother was in the hospital and she was not expected to survive the night. She was unwell and her organs were shutting down. I was able to be with her during those last moments, pray with her, and see her before she closed her eyes one last time.
When my three younger sisters and I went to her house, as we had so many times as children, we saw everything just as she left it.
On her coffee table, beside her favorite armchair was an open book. It was the last book that she read before she drove herself to the hospital the day before. I was emotionally moved when I saw the title – Back to Jerusalem 30 Day Devotional.
That was the last book my grandmother read before passing.
In memory of her, we would like to make this devotional free to everyone who would like to read it or listen to it. You can access the e-book version by clicking here or the podcast/audio version by clicking here.
The Back to Jerusalem 30 Day Devotional is unlike any devotional you have ever read. During the 30 days, you get to hear voices of Chinese believers who have been beaten, tortured, and thrown into prison for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Like my grandmother, some of the individuals whose voices echo in these daily devotions are no longer living, but their messages help put the focus back on Jesus Christ and to share with us His heart for the lost.
As you listen/read these voices, please set aside everything you think you know about following Christ and ask yourself some very simple questions on a daily basis. Questions like, “Why is China experiencing the largest revival in the history of the world, with an estimated one million people per month coming to Christ, even though it is a Communist country?” and, “Why are the wealthiest, most evangelized Christian countries not reaching the poorest, most unevangelized countries in the world?”
This 30 Day Devotional allows you to learn directly from those who have experienced first-hand persecution and have shared testimonies from the front lines of how God has intervened.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have access to this devotional absolutely free.
If you would like to have the hard copy, you can also order that here.
