Christianity is facing great opposition. No one is being thrown to the lions, but many followers of Christ face persecution because of their beliefs. At the very least, most know how it feels to end up on the wrong side of a politically correct conversation. More than ever before, we need believing and behaving disciples men and women who are ready to stand up and stand together to change the world as early Christians did: one righteous choice at a time. Filled with personal experiences and insightful stories, this book emphasizes the importance of living in accordance with our values every single day, with practical suggestions for how to actually pull it off. Christ does not just want people to acknowledge His grace, writes Brad Wilcox. He wants them to be transformed through it. He does not just want people to come to Him. He wants them to become like Him a process that takes place 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of our lives.
In this book, the expectation of Christians is elevated to a whole new level of Jesus-worthy action. So many of us say we’re Christian, say we believe in God, but this book taught me how to express that, how to display Jesus’ love in my everyday life, and how to be more proactive in my faith and love for the Lord.
While it’s easy to say you are something, it’s difficult to show you are. Wilcox provides us with examples of how to be better disciples for the Lord, and how to leave this world behind to prepare for our permanent home.
7-Day Christian isn’t referring to the conversion of becoming Christian in seven days. This book centers around how we as Christians should remain Christians seven days a week.
“We need more believing and behaving disciples—faithful men and women who are ready to stand up and stand together to change the world as early Christians did—one renewed friendship, one warm embrace, one sincere compliment, one compassionate act, one righteous choice at a time.” (page 6)
“People should be able to trust that they will see Christ’s image in our countenance and His teachings in our lives—not just on Sunday, but throughout the heat and pressure of a 7-day week.” (page 47)
