Book Review: Remember & Return: Rekindling Your Love for the Savior, by John MacArthur
Let’s face it. Life gets so busy and we get easily distracted by problems, trials, and the mundane things of life. It is easy to drift away from Jesus. Even going to church and reading the Bible can morph into activities where we simply go through the motions. When that happens, we need to make a conscious effort to rediscover and rekindle our love for Jesus Christ.
Pastor and author John MacArthur has written a 31-day devotional designed to help the reader rediscover who Jesus is, what he has done for us, and how we should respond to him. Each devotional is 6-7 pages long and can be easily read and digested in a few minutes. The devotionals begin by describing the person of Christ—who he is. They move into an examination of the work of Christ—what he did for us in salvation. The devotionals then describe what Jesus is doing now as King, High Priest, and Advocate. The book closes with how we should respond to Jesus.
As the author explains in the introduction, “Love for the Lord is the defining reality in the life of every true Christian. But the fire of the first love for the Lord can grow cold and diminish the believer’s power and blessing. This thirty-one-day journey is designed to keep your love for Christ increasing for your joy and His glory.”
