The messages touched hearts when they were preached, and you should find them refreshing and encouraging as you deal with life and your plans for the future. The subjects could not be more diverse, including drought; untimely death; the temple of Artemis in Ephesus; appointing pastors, elders, and deacons; and the author's love of colorful shirts. Yet all speak of the gospel of the love, faithfulness, and forgiveness of Jesus. There will be messages you love inside. They are different from any preaching you are used to.
Mr. Groves believes that many Christians today are questioning who they truly are, and how they fit into the kingdom of God. They have had doubts about what God says they will become or what they can be, and challenge whether God will keep His word with what He will do in their lives. They are having trouble with their faith and trust in God. Mr. Groves was also having trouble dealing with his trust and faith. One day, Mr. Groves felt God's presence imparting the message that He would show what was needed to know and to become one with Him. Mr. Groves' experiences and journey compelled him to reveal what he has learned to others through God's wisdom. It is important to include your heart, mind, body, and soul and to, conditionally, love and trust His word. This book reveals Mr. Groves' discovery of the power behind trusting Him everything that he does, and everything He says, even when we are in the midst of our troubles. He explains how having faith in God, and God alone, will bring us through whatever we are enduring. As Mr. Groves began to reconnect with God and reveal that he had felt left down by God in the past, he learns a very valuable lesson, and is delivered from the old and into the new with God. His journey through trust and faith has led Mr. Groves to tell his story. John F. Groves writes, "I can recall the journey of transformation that God put me through to become one with Him. This was the process of being tucked away inside His cocoon of grace, and trusting His timing, His process and allowing Him to completely remake me through His mercy. It was time of not knowing what or who I would become once I submitted to His will, and not on my own. But I followed Him, even though I could not see what He saw in me!"

“Remember, the one who pays the price for something is the one who determines the value of what it is they are purchasing. Jesus paid for you with His suffering, pain, death, and blood; therefore, He values you more than His own life, and God values you even more.” The Gospel According to Matthew was written by a former tax collector. They were men with deserved reputations for being ruthless thieves, despised by all. A tax collector’s income was largely created by overtaxation, bribery, and underhanded dealings. The very fact that Jesus used such a man to be part of a team that completely transformed the world for all time should be of great consolation for all of us who have fallen short. My prayer for you as you read this book would be that you understand the love, grace, mercy, and commitment Jesus and our God has for you. I believe that in doing so, you will fall in love with Him as I and countless others have. You will leave your guilt behind, finding hope, peace, joy, love, and acceptance in Christ and walking in a freedom such as you have never known.
