More than you have imagined, your life can communicate grace and bring solutions that transform the world for God's glory. Born to Shine invites Christians to review the way we see ourselves and the methods we employ as partners in God's mission. It looks at the beauty of light, the horrors of darkness, and God's mystifying method of using fallible Christ followers to bring hope and healing to neighbors near and far. The book provides practical tools to help readers answer the vital question: "How can I best use my prayer, time, finances, strengths, circumstances, and pain to change the world with the love of Jesus?" You are the light of the world. God invites you to reclaim that identity with intentionality, urgency, and excellence.
