The Invitation

Front Cover
Xulon Press, 2007 - Religion - 384 pages
In this classic work, the author joins the dots between three of the most powerful words in language: life, judgment and inheritance. Unless we understand all three of these words, we will find ourselves at a disadvantage in trying to pay the cost of discipleship. We will find ourselves unable to achieve the goal of godly passion, which is intimacy. The journey from the New Birth to the New Jerusalem is called "life." It is our life that determines our rank in the eternal city. You will never look at life in the same way again after reading this book. You will discover the role that intimacy plays in the grand scheme of things and find practical ways to achieve it. Judgment is not a word to be feared. One of the wisest things we can do is look at the manner in which God will assess our lives. Our purpose is to discover the things that please Him here, that we may better enjoy Him there. The goal is to enter fully into the inheritance that God has destined for us. The Invitation is both deeply inspirational and profoundly insightful. It is packed with new thoughts that move the reader both spiritually and metaphorically from life, through judgment, to the wedding feast of the Lamb. Michael Davidson is a church elder, worship leader, and Bible teacher. His ministry passion is to see Christians reach their destiny in Christ. He and his wife, Irene, have two married children, and live in Prince George, B.C., Canada.
