10 Steps To Knowing God will teach you the difference between simply knowing about God and personally knowing God. A down-to-earth and inspirational study, teaching you the spiritual keys in developing your relationship with God, enabling you to live a purposeful life.
A complete program designed for new believers and those returning to God, including paperback, eBook and free iphone app.
This book has been especially designed to give you the tools and Biblical knowledge you need to assist you in personally knowing and connecting with God. It has been especially written for three kinds of people in mind: those who’ve been Christians for a while yet still struggle to be intimate with God, brand new believers, and people who’ve decided to return to God.
For new believers, this book has been sensitively written for those who have not grown up in a Christian home and who don’t yet know anything about following God or the Bible, and who may have never picked up a Bible in their lives (as was the case for me when I became a Christian). If that is you, I have provided guidance on how to choose a Bible, an introduction to the different Bible versions, how to read the Bible, and what it really means to give your life to God and know Him personally. But like I said, this book is also suitable for those who have been a Christian perhaps for a while, and also for those who have been away from God and are now returning. So, whoever you are and whatever your background, this book will give you the keys to developing a real and intimate relationship with God and show you how to truly experience Him in your life.
10 Steps To Knowing God will teach you the difference between simply knowing about God and actually knowing God. Sadly, there are many Christians who know a lot about God but who yet lack a real and living relationship with Him. It is precisely to overcome such frustrations in your walk with God that this book has been written—a down-to-earth, readable and inspirational study for anyone who is genuinely interested in growing in confidence in knowing God and His ways, and to learn how that metes out in our everyday lives. 10 Steps to Knowing God then will provide you with:
Teaching on what the Bible says about how to develop your relationship with God • Application questions suitable for individual study or small group discussions • Real-life stories of how God has spoken to and moved in people’s lives • Introduction to Biblical characters who knew and experienced God • Helpful Bible verses for difficult times • Instruction for Small Group Leaders
Each section begins with a Bible passage which introduces the topic that follows, and each chapter closes with an appropriate prayer for you to pray, and seven further questions that review the whole chapter, which you can discuss in your small group. Whether you’ve been a Christian for many years or whether you’re just taking your first steps, 10 Steps to Knowing God will help you learn how to grow in your faith and understand its relevance to your life.
It’s my prayer that as you go through this study, whether as an individual or as part of a small group, you will grow in understanding of the foundations of the Christian faith. You will learn who God is and about His love, goodness, mercy and faithfulness as the Bible reveals, which will in turn, transform and correct any misunderstandings you may have of what God is like. I pray that God will speak directly to your heart as you ponder the jewels found in the greatest book of all, the Bible: “. . . I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the full-ness of God.” (Ephesians chapter 3 verses 17 to 19)
“My friend Liz Linssen has a heart for God, and a deep desire to see people discover the joy and the strength that comes from an ever deepening relationship with Him. She is well aware that is linked to our knowledge of Scripture and the work of the Holy Spirit, and this is clearly evident in this highly practical book.”
