Jesus says, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” Yet, He also says, “My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” How can both of those teachings be true? The answer is to be found among the secrets of the Kingdom Life. Every one of God’s commands was given to us because He loves us, not to add burdens to our lives. Abandoning ourselves to the Kingdom Life is not only a narrow way, but a joyous way as well. For Jesus’ yoke to be easy, we need more of Jesus, not less of Him.
Secrets of the Kingdom Life was written to make the reader hungry for a deeper walk with Christ. Among other things, Bercot shows the reader how to have a powerful devotional time with God each day and then to remain in communion with God throughout the day. The reader who puts the teachings on prayer, Bible study, reflection, and obedience into action will draw closer to God than ever before. Bercot addresses issues of heart and spirit in a gracious yet convicting way and challenges the reader to make a decisive commitment to live a life totally surrendered to Christ.
“If our people could put these truths to work, we would hear God speaking to us like never before. It would lead to an awakening, a powerful movement of God as in other days when the common people were smitten by the Word of God anew.” Ken Miller, minister
