/ -- Crest Publishers is proud to debut a new book, "Proper Perspective"
from Ben Nelson. The book will release on 12/1/2020 and will be available for pre-sale on 11/1/2020.
Some days, as a believer and as a pastor, I find myself stepping back and saying "We have missed the point!" God has more and is more than we are currently seeing. Satan, in his manipulation and deceit, has corrupted our view of who God is and what He longed to do in and through His son, Jesus. Jesus had a mission from the Father, but unfortunately we have reduced it down to the phrase "He died for sin, so that we could one day get into heaven." You see, Satan is tricky. This phrase is true, but it is only the truth in part. Our enemy knew He couldn't stop God from accomplishing His mission, so He distorts our perspective of God and the redemptive qualities that came through the death and resurrection of Jesus. God is calling us to gain proper perspective and to live lives that reveal this to the world.
"The way we view God has always determined how we relate to God and how we relate to God determines how we display God to the world around us."
The Apostle Paul saw this and constantly tried to recalibrate our hearts and bring us back to center. He longed for us to gain proper perspective. That is why he writes to the church of Philippi in Philippians 21:5 "Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus."
Paul was trying to remind the church of who God was and who He has called us to be, but along the way, Christian leaders and pastors, including myself, have stopped realigning hearts and minds and we have slowly veered from the proper perspective of who God is and who we are to God. This book will help you gain a proper perspective of God, of others, and of the life you are called to live.About the Author:
