Many Christians get so caught up with what it means to be Christian that they become the opposite of a Christian. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ”. Dr. David Jeremiah has truly defined what it means to be a good Christian and in doing so has blown Gandhi’s statement right out of the water. “Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World” clearly defines what I have always known a Christian should be.
It is about being, living and thinking as Christ. To achieve an absolute Christ Consciousness through the totality of our Being is the ultimate goal of the Heaven bound student of Jesus. We are to be true disciples! In so being it is our duty to evaluate all our actions and recognize why or why not they are matching up to those of our savior. At this point we must be prepared, through the knowledge of Scripture, to choose to be righteous.
Dr. Jeremiah illustrates how we should stay calm, compassionate, connected, confident and consistent in our journey to be like Christ. In doing so, we will achieve incredible things in our journey with Spirit. Our Gifts must be used for His purpose; to help others to reconnect with what is all good and righteous.
“Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World” does a wonderful job of using real life experiences and heartfelt stories to truly exemplify what the author wishes to project onto the souls of his readers. There are many wonderful antic dotes which through the use of humor clearly get his point across to the reader.
Personally, this book came into my life just at the right time. It answered many of the nagging questions that have lingered in my mind over the last few weeks and has brought me totally back “online” with Christ. Stay the course, stay committed and be convinced that all things are in His hands.
I would like to thank Dr. Jeremiah for sharing his knowledge, wisdom and open mindedness with his readers. He is truly well ahead of his time and I would truly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations and all those who find themselves searching for something more.
