Description

Here is a one-year guide through one of our most treasured books: Robert Boyd Munger's My Heart–Christ's Home. Contributors from across the landscape of evangelical Christianity show their appreciation for this timeless classic by reflecting on the "rooms" of our lives that daily we open to Jesus. You'll find devotions from Randy Alcorn, Bill Bright, Jill Briscoe, Stuart Briscoe, Chuck Colson, Ken Fong, Ken Gire, Liz Curtis Higgs, Karen Mains, John Ortberg, Duffy Robins, Joni Eareckson Tada and many more.

Each day you'll read a passage from Scripture and a brief thought about the process of giving yourself fully to Christ. An idea at the end of each day's reading will help you to respond to God in prayer and reflection.

With more than eleven million copies in print, My Heart–Christ's Home continues to inspire and encourage readers of all ages in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Its author, Robert Boyd Munger, served for many years as pastor of Hollywood Presbyterian Church and professor at Fuller Theological Seminary (Pasadena, California) before his death in 2001.

From the Introduction

"Welcome to my heart—make yourself at home." You can almost picture yourself saying that to Jesus, can't you? It's the impulse behind My Heart—Christ's Home, a little booklet by Robert Boyd Munger that for more than fifty years has helped countless people to grasp the idea of surrendering their lives to God. Originally preached as a sermon, the story made its way into several print editions and has inspired much further reflection about the nature of discipleship by succeeding generations of pastors and writers.

In this volume, you'll find some of the fruit of Munger's labors. A broad field of Christian writers have lent their voices to the idea of what it would be like to have Jesus as a houseguest. It's our hope you'll find a comfortable spot in your own home to settle in and let their observations and reflections minister to you.

The devotions are organized into weeks that correspond with different spaces in the typical home. For example, in the study we look at how we submit our minds to the lordship of Christ, in the dining room we look at how we control our appetites and desires while feeding our souls, and in the family room (found in the gift edition of My Heart–Christ's Home) we experience God's work in our family life. We have also extended Munger's metaphor and added two new rooms: the back porch, which is the place of hospitality, mission and evangelism, and the attic, which is a place for memories. Here and there throughout the devotional you will also find excerpts from My Heart–Christ's Home.

Each season of the year takes the reader once through the entire house, from opening the door to Jesus, to transferring the title into his hands. Each week includes six devotions by various contributors, providing a passage from Scripture and a guide toward your own reflection. You may be encouraged to pray, to reflect, to journal, to act. We choose to offer six entries each week rather than seven, assuming that you will use at least one day a week for worshiping God with his gathered people in your church—and also for a built-in bit of grace, as circumstances do sometimes infringe on our devotional time. You might use the seventh day to go back to some of the suggestions at the end of each devotional entry.

The enduring appeal of My Heart–Christ's Home is its promise: When we open our hearts to Jesus, he gladly enters and takes up residence. Munger's description of the experience sets the tone for the devotions that follow: "A deep peace settled down on my soul that has remained. I am his and he is mine forever!"

Sample Text

The Workroom

"Apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5 LB)

Jesus entered my workroom and looked over the talents and skills I had. He said, "This is fairly well furnished. What are you producing with your life for the kingdom of God?"

I told him, "I'm ashamed to say that with my awkwardness and limited ability, I don't think I'll ever do much."

Putting his great strong arms around me and his hands under mine, Jesus picked up the tools and began to work through me. "Relax. You are still too tense. Let go—let me do the work!"

It amazes me what his skilled hands can do through mine if I only trust him and let him have his way. I am very far from satisfied with the product that is being turned out. I still get in his way at times. There's much more that I need to learn. But I do know that whatever has been produced for God has been through him and through the power of his Spirit in me.

REFLECT: What skills and talents can you give to Christ? He will surprise you with what he can do through you!
