FaithWords The Love Revolution

In Joyce Meyer's new book, The Love Revolution, she invites you to join her in a revolution of love - one that will completely change the way you think and act, especially towards people. Love Gives, Love Sacrifices, and Love Lays Down Its Life for Others. That's a tall order. Revival is great but Joyce believes it's time to do more than just stir up something old. She wants us to totally change our way of expressing love by changing the way we treat others. In Joyce's 27th annual Women's Conference being held September 17-19, 2009, the theme is The Revolution. It's about changing the world for Christ by choosing to purposely and aggressively help other people. If you can't be there in person, read her book and join the revolution! Hardcover.

This book came into my life just at the right time: God is challenging me to step up and serve Him by serving others. The Love Revoltion is the perfect field manual for this calling. It also provided me with many answers to questions I have had about the action of "love" for a very long time. READ IT! IT WILL CHANGE WHO YOU ARE and HOW YOU LOVE! (Thanks Joyce)

In her recent book, The Love Revolution, she invites us to join a radical movement with the potential to change the world. She reminds us that "nothing will change in our world unless each one of us is willing to change," and challenges us to "overthrow the dominance of selfish, self-centered living in our lives." Using practical teaching and personal examples, Joyce communicates a powerful biblical principal: God's love ought to flow radically out of His children, in a way that impacts the world. She sounds the alarm, calling people to an aggressive, sacrificial love that gives and serves regardless of the cost. She encourages an active love that is intentionally expressed and compels us to look constantly "for new and better ways to bring love into this world." This is not your usual love book. It's not just a collection of scriptures and good ideas packed into an easy-read. It is instead, a "manual," which addresses social issues, individual struggles, and the deficiencies of the church in this area. It offers the reader practical, doable suggestions for being an active part of the Love Revolution. I was thoroughly inspired and highly recommend it.

Rather than complain about the ugly problems of the world, this book challenges the reader to be part of solutions. The author asks, "What have you done today to make someone else's life better?" This is a book that will challenge the reader to put Christian love into action by stepping outside comfort zones.John Maxwell writes about an interesting concept called, "The Compliment Club." Joyce Meyer proposes a "pay it forward" style of blessing others with time, talents, thoughts, words, deeds, and money.Fans of Joyce Meyer will not be disappointed with this one.

"The Love Revolutio"n is an excellent Scripture-based, God-focused book. I'd summarize its message as being 'the fulfillment of our faith in Christ is following his example (and showing our appreciation for the mercy he has shown us) by showing that love and mercy to others.' She teaches a Biblical, balanced view of how to do life.The book is written in a conversational, easy-to-understand style. She gives suggestions of things we can do (both big and small), cheers her readers on, and explains why showing love to others in real, tangible ways is important. I liked that she stressed doing small, everyday acts of love for those around us as well as the big, obvious things like helping stop sex trafficking and such. Little things might not seem important, but I've seen how they can make a huge impact.Overall, I'd highly recommend this book, especially to those who haven't really thought about helping others as a way to grow closer to God or who want ideas on more ways they can show Christ's love to others.

This is a great book, a must read for every Christian and really everyone. This subject is one I am most passionate about! There are over 2000 scriptures where God is speaking about the poor, needy and orphans, this is the one issue most on God's heart. And therefore it should be the priority for His people, the poor are the ones most dear to the heart of God and should be for His people also.The book is about getting it, understanding the heart of God, aliening our hearts with His, understanding our responsibility to the poor and needy. Moving from a selfish life, a self centered life, to one of love for others. Having our hearts break over the things that break God's heart.At this books core is the story of author, Joyce Meyer and how she finely got what God says about our duty to the poor and needy, how she was changed and how her ministry changed also when she got hold of Gods passion for the poor and needy. This book is about her encouraging others to get that same passion, to get Gods heart for the needy, and take action as she did. To understand our calling to take care of the poor and needy, do something, to act on what God said, to walk the talk as they say..Ted Kennedy was asked once how he could have such an obsession with the condition of the poor being he grew up with privilege, so much wealth. Kennedy replied with a question; asking reporter if he had never read the bible?.He got it. And it dictated his life, his work, the focus of all most every bill he authored in the senate (I'm know fan of Kennedy's political stance, but admired his passion for the poor and social justice.). This is what Joyce wants for her readers, that just as it took hold of her and her life, for it to take hold of her readers and change them.
