Jesus, Continued...

Jesus, Continued...by J.D. Greear is a book dealing mostly with Christian's relationships with the Holy Spirit. Greear proposes that Jesus told His disciples He would always be with them. To fulfill that promise, He sent the Holy Spirit. And we, as today's Christians, can have a loving relationship with the Holy Spirit as well. Greear asserts that for us to have a relationship in which we commune with God, as disciples in the past did, that we need to do that through the person of the Holy Spirit. We can do nothing apart from Him. The Spirit is responsible for taking God's truths and making them alive for us, for showing us how to implement them in our own lives, and for empowering us to accomplish them. The Spirit is not just part of the Trinity, but He is an essential part of our lives. In the first part of this book, Greear discusses who the Spirit is and why He is vital to the Gospel and our lives. In the second part of the book, he discusses how we can experience the Holy Spirit, and why it matters to our lives that we do experience Him. This book draws on important truths and helps show us how to develop a more true walk with God in our lives. It is a practical guide drawing on Scripture to help make God's truths alive in us. It is easy to read and understand, yet full of deep insight that will keep you thinking and praying long after you finish the book. It is a book I will return to any time I am feeling burned out and need reassurance of the the Spirit with me.
