The Revolution

I take up compassion and surrender my excuses. I stand against injustice and commit to live out simple acts of God’s love. I refuse to do nothing. This is my resolve. I am the Love Revolution.

This is the creed that those at Joyce Meyer’s ministries have agreed to live out, and they are inviting us to join them. We, as Americans, as humans, are used to living selfishly with everything being all about number one—Me.

Joyce Meyers points to a verse in Luke (Luke 6:38) as being the answer. It is more blessed to give than to receive, and she suggests that we should start giving out love. Politics, economics or technology is not the answer, and she calls upon us to be the person who answers the call for action—be the person who helps someone in need, someone who practices an aggressive act of kindness.

If we live only for ourselves, we will never be satisfied, and reminds us that the Bible teaches that it is only when we give ourselves away that we receive not just what we’ve given, but bonus and blessing.

Guest writers, such as Darlene Zschech from Hillsong, Martin Smith of Delirious?, Pastors Paul Scanlon and Tommy Barnett, and John Maxwell help out Ms. Meyers by contributing to this book.

I’ve enjoyed reading Ms. Meyer’s latest nonfiction book, and encourage you to do the same. It will change the way you look at the world and its problems, and the way you perceive the answers, one that introduce a new way of living—one that will change your life and your world. Don’t miss this book. $21.99 hardcover. 250 pages.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book to review.
