Description
Two words from Jesus change everything. " Sent chronicles one family's journey from the comforts of America to the challenges of going to the nations. You will be blessed and convicted by what you read. The Alan family's story can help change you for the glory of King Jesus!" --Daniel L. Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary If anyone had the ability to succeed as a committed Christian as well as a high-achieving American, it was Hilary Alan. She and her husband, Curt, had a beautiful home, a fast-track career, and talented, successful children. But in the midst of their comfortable life and active church involvement, they realized they rarely heard from God. Sent tells the story of ordinary Christians who accepted two words from Jesus at face value and found that doing so changed everything. In Jesus's call to "follow me," the Alans discovered answers to the most pressing human needs: meaning, purpose, vocation, significance, and God's plan for the future. For the Alans, it led to selling nearly all their belongings and moving with their children halfway around the world. For you, the particulars will be completely different, but no less significant. Jesus's call can change everything in your life. As you follow Hilary Alan's journey in response to Jesus's call to discipleship, you will gain a clear understanding of the things that can keep you from obeying God. You will no longer wonder if you're investing your life in the best way possible, because two words from Jesus change everything.
