Book Review | The Invitation by John and Carol Arnott
Catch The Fire Books | 2013
I love getting invitations! Whether it’s for a birthday party, a baby dedication, some special achievement celebration or perhaps a wedding, an invitation brings a sense of anticipation. After it has been accepted, there are preparations that need to be made - purchasing a gift, buying new clothes, re-arranging schedules, finding a babysitter, etc.
John & Carol’s new book, reminds us again of the most incredible invitation that anyone has ever received, that is to be part of the great “Marriage Supper of the Lamb”. The authors emphasize that there is much preparation to be done on our part to make sure we are ready to attend this awesome event.
Things like keeping our hearts pure and close to the Lord, spending time with Him to develop intimacy, and waking up to the reality of the hour in which we are living are highlighted in this small, but very powerful little book. At the end of each chapter there is a place to respond with personal reflection and prayers.
Filled with great encouragement, and some sober warnings, this book is a must read for all who want to be included with those who will enter into the wedding feast in heaven that we all look forward to.
I highly recommend it!
