Teach me Your Word, O Lord by Terry McCraw
This insightful book is filled with messages by Terry McCraw, who has a depth of knowledge in understanding spiritual things. Teach me Your Word, O Lord has 16 messages ranging from Mary, Martha, and Lazarus to worship to the message of the cross. The simplicity of these messages will help even the novice reader understand God's word and it's application to their own lives. The experienced Christian can also benefit from this book's encouraging and uplifting messages.
In the message, "Who is the Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?" Terry McCraw states, "Jesus wants us to have child-like faith. Little children believe what they are told." This spoke to my heart. Children believe what you say. If we would take that faith and apply it to God's word and what He's told us, there would be no doubt as to who God is and wants to be in our lives.
In this same chapter, McCraw states, "If we expect to achieve greatness in the Kingdom, we must love one another, not allow hard feelings to exist between us and others, and do everything possible to maintain peace and unity in the body of Christ." A simple command, but one that is so hard to fulfill. Why do Christians tend to tear down their fellow church members? We should lift up and encourage those around us. Love one another.
This book would make a great devotional. Each day spend time on each message. If you are ready to dig deeper into God's word, pick up this great book!
