Sacred Intent is a devotional approach—in contrast to a practical approach—to personal growth, leadership and influence based on Scripture. In Sacred Intent, author Brent Crowe challenges you to think, dream and lead.
Crowe asks readers to think about the idea of maximizing each moment of your life. I often struggle with this concept and was grateful to receive an advance copy of this book just at the right time. Sacred Intent is filled with direction, instruction and thought-provoking concepts combined in short stories and practical tips guiding readers on how to better use their time. The best thing about all of this? He takes his principles right from the Bible, the ultimate answer book.
Crowe structures his concept around the days of the week, while helping readers learn to make decisions based on their character. He shows readers how to own their biblical values and how to make a commitment to service in His name. Topics include a focused dream, time management, and inner calling.
Sacred Intent provides practical direction to both new and experienced leaders on how to be passionate in changing the world for Christ and working with others in the pursuit of their God given dreams. I loved how Brent Crowe uses stories from the Bible and relates them to the reader so that they can apply the meaning to their own lives. He helps readers realize that they need to develop their spiritual gifts to their biggest potential so that they can have a maximum influence for God’s glory. He reminds us that God doesn’t concern himself with why others think you shouldn’t lead, that we are stewards of God’s creation, and His name should echo through our influence around the world.
This is a “must read” for everyone I know – leaders and non-leaders alike! I believe this great book would really help its readers come to know more about what it means to truly be a disciple of Christ! I know I’ll be coming back to this book in the future to help remind me in my journey with Jesus!
