Just Like Jesus Devotional

Max Lucado's companion devotional to his book, "Just Like Jesus" is this devotional that challenges you to spend thirty days learning about your faith, your savior, and how to become more like Jesus. 

"Just Like Jesus Devotional" is a month long challenge to allow Jesus to take over your heart. The devotionals themselves are based on four principles: thinking, hearing, reflecting, and speaking. Each daily devotion begins with a bible verse that sets the theme for the day, then a brief explanation of that verse and how it can be applied to our daily lives. Then, Lucado poses a series of questions in the "thinking" section, meant to prompt you to truly understand what it is that God is trying to tell you.

The "hearing" section of the devotion follows, and offers a longer verse that compounds on the questions posed in the "thinking" section. "Reflecting" follows with a few questions about the verses you read in the "hearing" section. Finally, the devotion ends with the "speaking" portion, that essentially helps inspire you in prayer.

What I liked about this devotional was that the daily devotions are truly inspiring. I loved that the sections at the end of the reading build on each other, and really make you think about the impact that Jesus has on your life, and your relationship with Him.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in walking deeper in their faith. Lucado knows how to make you really ponder your own spirituality, and this devotion is 30 days of challenging you to live deeper in your faith.
