I love Proverbs 31 Ministries, and I love their authors as well. Suzanne Eller writes with such fervency that you begin the Introduction with a faith challenge, and one very deserving of attention: “What would you say if Jesus walked up to you today and said these words, ‘Come with me. Wherever I lead. Whatever the price’?”
She lays out her chapters by beginning with Simon Peter and going through an intimate account of his genuine encounter with Jesus. Interwoven into each chapter are personal accounts of her own encounters with trusting Jesus and the outcomes of some of her life lessons. They are deep and moving, but real and transparent. In the last chapter, she invites us to be the 13th disciple, and begs us to examine our hearts and motives for following Him.
The devotion questions are quite deep, but so is the level that the Lord wants to take our personal relationship with Him. Comfort is not one afforded to those who follow Jesus, and to be challenged in faith is something the Holy Spirit desires for growth. I loved reading this, and the way she made my faith deepen and my longing to hear Jesus more clearly. I invite you to read the invitation firsthand, and then determine your next step.
