Book Review: Ablaze For God by Wesley L. Duewel

Ablaze for God
Author: Wesley L. Duewel
Publisher: Zondervan Publishing House
Genre: Christian Leadership.

ABOUT THE BOOK

After a lot of books have been written on leadership by various authors, I have not read a book on leadership so easy to read yet so enlightening, instructive, challenging and scripturally sound.

Written in seven perfect interwoven parts which I believe either part cannot do without the other. Wesley with scripture back ups, shows us to be that Christian and an effective leader that God has called us to be.

Our life aflame with the Holy fire, our power in the Holy Ghost, our love, the perfect love that His Spirit has shed abroad in our heart, our accountability as a shepherd, our prayer life, our anointing and integrity as a believer and our infilling in the Holy Ghost are cogents aspect that Wesley wrote about in the pages.

He left no stoned unturned, sometimes citing the examples of our Fathers in Faith who has lived exemplary lives. Leaders such as Duncan Campbell, Charles G. Finney and John Wesley.

Each part will open you up to important areas of your life where you need God to work on you, you will realise the aspect of your leadership that is lacking and how you can become a better version of yourself as you move through the pages. It is not just an ordinary book written by on of those Pastors. It is a manual that if you use prayerfully can change your life and ministry forever.

QUOTES FROM ABLAZE FOR GOD.

“Christian leadership demands our spiritual best, and more. To our best must be added His supernatural enabling touch”

“We must offer our best; then we look to God to add His Holy fire”

“We seek for something more than busyness; we seek an evidence that God uses us”

“He provides you gifts which you are to stir into flame. To fail to use them as God desires is to fail God and people”

“Our cooperation with the Spirit is essential to consistency of flowing ardor, spiritual radiance and flaming zeal”

“We are in constant danger of relying too exclusively upon our human efforts and wisdom”

“Purity pertains to living, power especially to service”

“The more you minister, the more you need your.power renewed, the busier you become, the more tou need spiritual refreshment and replenishing”

MY THOUGHTS

I had this book for over a year before I finally got to finish it, during one of those weeks my smartphone went on break. I usually wonder why I seem to drop it everytime I pick it up to read, I might have gone a little far,but then when next I pick it up I start all over again, funny right, as that ever happen to you with your books?

But still I am happy I read it when I did, it was such a reflective moment for me, I have my book coloured with highlighter marks and writings all over, although I am not in a high position of leadership as we might put it, but I realised it is not the effectiveness of our pastors alone that make the church, but like Wesley puts it, if we all as cleaners, ushers, choirs, youth leaders, children leaders, sunday school teachers, media and others will released ourselves to be baptized of fire by God. Our whole service and ministry will turn in a new dimension.

You all should know I love this book already and I recommend it for every Christian whether you serve in a small or large capacity.
