I love the message given in the new book, Part I of The Faithful Father which shares the author’s personal conflicts as an adult caused by childhood isolation and abuse done to her by a trusted teacher. She bravely shares her journey of faith and trust in God to overcome the pain of her past that led to self loathing and hatred of who she had become. She goes deep into the difficulty of approaching God and living by the authority given believers in Christ for healing and restoration.
Through her experience Christians learn how to subdue the flesh to live by the Spirit of God through Christian mind renewal from Roman’s 12:2 that transforms the soul with God’s Word. We watch her go through the trials of the flesh to the training of the soul to become fine-tuned by God for His purpose. We also see through her victories that we can overcome in Christ those areas of weakness in our lives that have come through abuse, confusion, our environments and family cultures. At the conclusion her readers learn that God does not see His children as we see ourselves, but instead as righteous through Christ Jesus!
This short book explodes with Biblical empowerment concerning Jesus’ work on the cross to save believers from eternal death and to lead them out of the darkness of sin. None of us can come to Christ knowing how to be a successful Christian, but Sharon’s testimony proves the truth of God’s restorative Word with 50 years of life experience and victory over whatever has tried to make her fail and keep her from the authority of Christ Jesus to conquer and win.
John 8:12 says, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” The Faithful Father Part 1 teaches how to follow this light and live it daily as a “new creation” and part of a “new nationality” in Christ. Author Sharon Palmer proves with her life that Jesus came to light the way for every person to be washed in His shed blood and be saved from eternal damnation. Read this book if you need healing, peace and abundant joy!
