Summer is here! Yaaaaa!
With the onset of this terrific season, God has given you some wonderful opportunities that you might not have during the school year,
one of them being the extra time to read. I know that with the sun
coming out and the better weather, there is a tremendous draw to be
outdoors, which is great and I hope you take advantage of that as
well. But might I suggest that you also take some time to grab a
few good books to expand your mind and be challenged in your
Christian walk. The good news is that you can also be outside and
read at the same time. AWESOME!
So along with daily Bible reading, let me recommend some good
books that would be of great benefit to you, not just this summer,
but at any time during the year:
Holiness by J.C. Ryle. This is an older book written in the late
1800s, but it speaks truth that is vitally needed today for the believer to live as Christ.
The Thought of God by Maurice Roberts. Roberts does a masterful
job at expanding our view of God, what it means to be a follower of
Christ, and how to live with other believers.
Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris. This is a recent book
that will challenge you to rise above the status quo of the low
expectations of today’s youth and work to make a difference in the
world for Christ—even now.
If you would like other recommendations, just let me know. I pray
that you will wisely take the time that God has given you to allow
Christ to be formed in you through the books that you read. Happy
