“God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger,
telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.”
The title of Susan B. Mead’s most recent book, Don’t Go Through Life Naked (affiliate link), sounds risque, but it is a definite guide to power in Christ.
Susan reveals in her book that as a Christian, an arsenal of indestructible weapons exist to enrich and empower your daily walk.
First, she demonstrates that despite the humorous title, her book focuses on a real warfare and battle against a formidable foe. She writes:
“It became clear that we must all be aware
of the culprit who comes to steal, kill, and destroy.
His name is evil, pure evil.
He sneaks in, often unbeknownst, in so many insidious ways.
He wants to have his way in my life, loves, home, and heart—and in yours, too!”
She reminds us that in Ephesians 6: 10-20 we find our arsenal which includes a belt of truth; a breastplate of righteouness, delivered through Jesus’s death on the Cross; a shield of faith to quench Satan’s fiery darts; helmet of salvation; and the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.
Susan not only reveals the weapons, but gives us useful and real life applications on how to wield them as we face the real trials that are bound to come our way. At the end of each chapter, she includes thought-provoking questions.
What I love about Susan Mead’s book, Don’t Go Through Life Naked: How to Clothe Yourself in God’s Power, is that it is it a powerful quick read packed with great resources to help enrich your daily walk with Christ.
She is also helping others with the sale of her book. A portion of the proceeds of Don’t Go through Life Naked will benefit Proverbs 31 Ministries to help them continue teaching biblical truth and taking the hope of Jesus to women and families around the world.
