Ester Reid’s Awakening ~ Book Review

Timeless Christian message!  One of being circumspect and watchful in your life as a Christian.  Examine yourself, judge YOURSELF, so you won’t be judged by God!  Hebrews 2:1-3  comes to my mind, when thinking about the book:  [1] Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
[2] For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
[3] How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

Ester Reid was a typical lukewarm Christian, who believed she was quite pious and long-suffering, when in fact she was the opposite.  She helps to run her family’s boardinghouse, and works long hours, cooking, cleaning, and caring for sick residents.

During a visit to a long-time friend’s house, Ester’s conscience gets an awakening.

ROMANS 10:8-13 – [8] But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
[9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
[10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
[11] For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
[12] For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
[13] For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
