When Andrew Murray began his theological training, he experienced a conversion of heart and an inward grace by casting himself on Christ. Murray wrote to his parents, “Your son has been born again. … I have cast myself on Christ.” This became his life theme.

“May not a single moment of my life be spent outside the light, love, and joy of God’s presence,” was his prayer. “And not a moment without the entire surrender of myself as a vessel for him to fill full of his Spirit and his love.”

Andrew Murray preached that the believer can expect to receive the fullness of the Spirit. “I must be filled; it is absolutely necessary. I may be filled; God has made it blessedly possible. I would be filled; it is eminently desirable. I will be filled; it is so blessedly certain.”

Murray interpreted the Bible for Christians to experience the grace of God, who did everything for people to live meaningful lives that participated in the life of God, to lead them into a fuller understanding of the work God has called them to do.

“God rules the world by the prayers of his saints, that prayer is the power by which Satan is conquered, that by prayer the church on earth has disposal of the powers of the heavenly world.”

A deeper spiritual life cannot grow without deeper daily devotion to God’s Word and to prayer. Andrew Murray was one of the best-loved and most widely read writers on the deeper Christian life. This pastor, preacher, and missions speaker witnessed remarkable spiritual revival on three continents.

If you hunger for God’s presence in a daily personal renewel, 3-Minute Devotions with Andrew Murray will satisfy you with an astonishing banquet of divine, spiritual riches. Here are his treasured insights on prayer to draw you closer to God. A daily scripture deepens your insight, with a brief prayer to focus your devotions.

“Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is indispensable,” insisted Andrew Murray. As you satisfy your hunger for God in this inspiring devotional, you will experience the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit. Faith will come alive for you in a way you never thought possible.

UNSEEN – The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed – by Sara Hagerty

UNSEEN – The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed –

by Sara Hagerty

240 pages, Publisher: Zondervan, August 29, 2017.

ISBN-13: 978-0310339977

Every heart yearns to be seen, not unseen, to be understood, not misunderstood, to be noticed, not unnoticed and be appreciated, not unappreciated. God is the only One who understands the unseen in our lives.

God gives us the gift of being hidden in a very noticeable world. Only when we hide ourselves in God, hidden away and kept out of harm’s way, can we walk in the freedom of the Lord, able and willing to give ourselves to others in joyous abandon.

We will know the heartfelt joy of a deeper relationship with God. Only when we give ourselves to God, fully and completely, holding nothing back, can we live out the lives God intends for us.

In “Unseen”, Sara Hagerty reveals our true identity in God, in the quiet, hidden places of life, where we are seen and known for ourselves alone. With piercing vulnerability, Sara chronicles her life’s story in great detail, as she discovers the intimacy of being known and loved by God.

Sara Hagerty invites us to offer every unseen minute of our lives to God, to taste His goodness, feel His loving kindness and bask in the radiance of His love. God is in all the secret places of our lives. He meets us with a radical love, that lays everything at His feet. He asks us the most important question of our lives:

“Will you waste your love on Me?

Jesus said that where this gospel is preached in the whole world, what Mary did will be told in memory of her” – (Mark 14:9).

Mary only touched One Life, the life of God’s Son. At once, her life was transformed and immortalized forever. When Jesus walked into Mary’s mundane world, an extraordinary waste happened, one that would fill the whole world with its fragrance for time immemorial.

As Jesus dined, Mary poured perfume on His feet and wiped them dry with her hair. While others criticized her, Jesus dignified her for what she did. He said she would be esteemed worldwide for her wastefulness for God. Jesus told her story to the whole world that night.

Today we know Mary through her loving extravagance for God. Mary had eyes for only One, driven to His feet by love, and staying there despite cynosure and criticism. The faith she gleaned from Jesus became her greatest expression of radical love for God, that lays everything at His feet.

Mary’s wastefulness teaches us to waste ourselves on God. A moment spent with God alone invites others to Him, a moment when Mary’s love for Jesus ignited everything she did, to set the stage for her story to be told to the whole world forever.

Will you hide yourself in Him and waste your love on Him?

Come and find the true Christ of your heart in “Unseen” by Sara Hagerty.
Your search for identity will be fufilled in this inspiring and timeless classic of modern times.
