Seven Mile Miracle By Steven Furtick




 His Final Words Are Your New Beginning  
It’s Good Friday. The Son of God is giving up his life. What does he want to say to us in His final hours? What does He tell the people standing at the foot of the cross, to pass down to the ages? He speaks only seven short statements. Words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. Seven statements that mean everything.
 
In Seven-Mile Miracle, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us how Jesus’s last words offer mile markers for our journey in relationship with God. It’s a lifelong journey and it’s not always easy. But Jesus is both our guide and our destination as we travel. Put your feet on a proven path—the road that Jesus walked.
 
Includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesus’s death and resurrection.

A Proven Path for Spiritual Growth
 
 From time to time we all feel stuck in our relationship with God and frustrated by life’s setbacks. Jesus faced what could have been the ultimate defeat on the cross. Yet he emerged triumphant through his relationship with his heavenly Father. And he showed us the way so that we could do the same.
 
In Seven-Mile Miracle, Steven Furtick explores how Jesus’s seven last statements on the cross offer a proven spiritual growth path for us. You will experience the Easter message more personally than ever before as you engage the words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, reunion.
 
After all, we are not simply believers—people who have put our faith in Jesus. We are not simply disciples—pupils who learn from him. We are called to be followers of Christ. This is your opportunity to follow Jesus through his death, and move forward in his resurrection power, starting now.

This was a good book. You get to take a good hard look at the presence of God through the last words of Jesus.
I like all the scripture in each mile and I liked some of the commentary. Some of it I did not agree with.
I am a firm believer that when Jesus died he had you and I on his mind because he died for each of us
This is a book that should be read by everyone.
I gladly gave this book 4 stars. I hope that you will pick up a copy.
I received  this book from the publisher for review. A favorable was not required and all views expressed are my own.
