#onelinewednesday: Emerald Illusion

Today’s book I’m sharing is a deep and thought-provoking allegorical tale.

I haven’t read the book Wizard of Oz, but I strongly recommend not comparing anything said or known about that story with J. Rodes’ Emerald Illusion. Truly, there is nothing safe in Oz.

There were many things I enjoyed about this story and even though allegorical stories are not something I usually read, the truths shining through this book strongly spoke to me. It encouraged and reminded me what it means to be a follower of Christ and that this world is not my ultimate home. Not only that, but that this journey called life is an adventure that should be filled with purpose in serving the Creator.

The quote below especially spoke to me in how it’s important to look beyond self. To seek the Kingdom. To live out His “Royal Law.” To shine bright in choosing to serve others.

It’s when we do those things that we are living out the truth of the Kingdom coming and more. We refuse to live in an illusion and live with a purpose.

May you friend live out a bold purpose for the Creator. <3
