What is a Christian? What should they act like? Has anybody ever taken the time to explain to you how Christianity works without beating you up? Are we all going to make it to Heaven? Are there degrees of happiness and rewards for believers and conversely, punishments for the unbelievers? There seems to be a spiritual famine in our country, so what exactly is the value in serving God?
These “speculation theologies” are floating around today, but they are based on human reasoning or what’s “politically correct” and not the Bible. At best, the church doesn’t offer us much information about Heaven, except that it will have streets of gold and be beautiful. We all will be rewarded and happy, but beyond that, we really aren’t told very much about what we’ll be doing. Or are we? As Gerber continued to trace various subjects through the Bible, an image started to materialize out of the mist, one of God’s mature yet consistent plan for us in His kingdom. In Love with Abandon, Jerry Gerber takes scriptural pictures and transforms them into fictional stories, depicting the possibilities of life in God’s eternal kingdom.
In his work, Gerber challenges you to live for God and turn to His Word, and in doing so, He will help you get through whatever you may be facing. Jesus doesn’t always immediately heal us of our past, but He does help us cope until the time is right for healing. And though God may not make sense today, He will in the end.
