Each entry from Authentic is a moment of reflection, a brief peek at one small facet of the stunning picture of Jesus provided to us in the three angels’ messages.
In preparing to claim the beliefs of the Adventist movement as the foundation for their faith, baptismal candidates are asked to claim thirteen vows as their own. This new devotional by Pastor Shawn Boonstra is dedicated to highlighting these thirteen truths in the light of the glory of Jesus Christ, our Creator and our Redeemer.
According to Boonstra, understanding our Adventist doctrines—from the sanctuary and the Sabbath to the health message and the state of the dead—leads us to a better understanding of the mind of God and to a more intimate knowledge of Christ.
Pastor Boonstra states, “It is my prayer for you this year, that you will find yourself drawn ever closer to the One who stepped down from glory to be closer to you.”
