Even after fulfilling his youthful dreams of a successful collegiate football career and playing in the NFL, Miles was spiritually empty and on a path of destruction in the form of cocaine use. Finally, one early morning in , Miles had his first encounter with the person of Jesus Christ and decided to follow Him. The moment Miles relinquished control of his life, God's power was evident.
Miles was delivered from his drug habit, experienced positive changes in his daily life and actions, and was reunited with his girlfriend, Debbie, who is now his wife. God soon set Miles' feet on a new path: Miles had great dreams as a young man, but he never imagined the joy and fulfillment he would experience in sharing God's love with others. Are you an author?

God in the Mirror Discussion Guide: They were godly rebels who rebelled against evil and worldliness. They were "bad to the bone" -- radically committed to God all the way down to the bone.
See a Problem?
Are you radically committed to the LORD? Are you loyal to Him? Do you say 'No' to sinful ways or distractions? Do the words 'No Fear' describe you? If so, that's great; if not, what's holding you back? Here's a smattering of the Bible characters mentioned in the book and the qualities that made them "bad to the bone" for the LORD: What's strange is that the two previous kings had set a bad example for him 'bad' as in evil.
This didn't stop Josiah from getting fired-up for God and implementing numerous positive reforms in the nation. Do you seek God, pray, read the Bible, attend church, serve with your gifts, etc. Do you refuse to be defiled by worldliness and worldly distractions and eat your spiritual vegetables?

In other words, just because you have righteous and loving friends, parents, relatives or teachers doesn't automatically guarantee that you'll be godly. If you're determined to be a knucklehead like Manasseh, that's what you'll be. After a lifetime of evil Manasseh ultimately repented, but only after being dragged to Assyria in shackles and thrown into a smelly dungeon.
Bad to the Bone: Fifteen Cool Bible Heroes Who Lived Radical Lives for God
That's great, but there's still a strong hint of folly -- Manasseh was the type of person that would only turn to God after severe tragedy hit. Don't be like that. Serve God wholeheartedly when everything's peaches and cream. The thing is, he was tending his sheep that very day!
In other words, David recognized the opportunity to fight Goliath as a huge turning point in his life. It was the day he would stop being a shepherd boy and become a mighty giant-slaying warrior! What habit, sin or distraction do you need to get beyond in order to mature into the courageous giant-killer like David? God is calling you to slay some giants in your life past or present so that you can begin to follow Him into the future and fulfill His call.
In other words, God only works with and through those who are humble. Humility is simply an attitude of lowliness; it means you don't think you're all that and a bag of chips. It doesn't mean you think you're a worm groveling on the ground; that's a perversion of humility and a mindset one-step away from the looney bin. Humility is a beautiful quality. It simply means you understand and accept reality, that is, in the grand scheme of things you're actually quite small.
The good news is that God has an important part for you to play in His plan for the ages. Such was the case with both Moses and Mary. But it took him until the age of 80 to develop the level of humility God required!
Resources - Miles McPherson
Don't wait until your 80 years old like Moses to develop humility and be used powerfully of God. Develop such humility in your teens like Mary. Miles is black, by the way. He was just too young for such an act. He refused even though commanded by his father, the leader of Israel. He refused even though the rough-hewn troops would likely ridicule him as a "wimply girly boy.
You can also say 'No' to your own worst enemy -- your flesh! Rebekah was clearly beautiful for any observer to see. She wore robes signifying her virginity. Sexual purity was a thing of honor to her. She didn't flaunt her beauty cheaply like, say, Shakira. Has God blessed you with good looks and charisma? Use them for your Heavenly Father's glory and the advancement of His Kingdom. The Scriptures show that Timothy had a believing mother and grandmother, but that his father was a non-believer. This obviously means that his father was incapable of mentoring him in a spiritual sense.
But Timothy didn't focus on the negative.
He received and learned from his mother and grandmother, as well as his spiritul father the apostle Paul. We've all been "dealt a hand" with our lives. There's some good and some bad; sometimes more bad than good. Don't focus on the negative and become a bitter, unproductive loser like too many people I care to mention.
Open your eyes and focus on the good. God has or will grant you 'golden connections. And you'll be blessed in life, as well a blessing to others! Don't be a nominal Christian -- someone who's a Christian in name only, someone who has the veneer of Christianity but not the heart. The Lord reveals Himself in different ways to different people according to their spiritual-growth level and their present needs. And the Laodicean Christians whom Jesus was referring to in the text cited above needed a bold word of correction. Is the Lord speaking similarly to you? The bottom line is: Be a radically committed "bad to the bone" servant of the Most High God!
If you do this, I guarantee you the Lord will never threaten to spit you out of His mouth! Two things about the book: It's obviously geared to young people, teens to mid-twenties, but you can be any age and get a whole lot out of it.

So don't let that turn you away if you're older. Secondly, it's formatted as a week study, but you don't necessarily have to read it according to that overlong schedule. I never follow these types of timelines in books. Why do authors do that? I took my time and read "Bad to the Bone" in a week. Since some sellers are selling "Bad to the Bone" for the ridiculously low price of a penney, make sure you snatch it up if it sounds like your cup of java! See all 11 reviews.
