More Like Jesus: A 40-Day Devotional Journey, by Jessica Brodie.
(Jesus’s words and actions in the years He spent on earth spell out critically important things. Foremost is that God is our utmost priority, and everything we are, do, and have is because of Him and from Him. But the second priority is to love others—and Jesus showed we can do that in a number of key ways. Love transcends emotion. Love is a verb. And loving others is how we can demonstrate our love for God. This 40-day devotional, written by award-winning journalist and author Jessica Brodie, editor of the Advocate, teams Jesus’s words and actions  with articles that have appeared in the Advocate newspaper over the last several years, showcasing what it looks like to be a real-life, modern-day Christ-follower.)
