"Moments with Jesus" Launch
Many of you have been intimately involved with a two-year-long journey that is ending tomorrow: the arrival of Moments with Jesus, my children's Bible! Thank you to so many of you who've read snippets of the writing and given me comments on the illustrations by our team--I'm truly grateful.
I'm including here a really lovely illustration from the Garden of Gethsemane: the moment when He speaks and it bowls all the soldiers to the ground.
This is the glorious, all-powerful One with whom we're walking!
"The Idea Walked"
“The very center of the Christian faith is the Incarnation, in which the Divine Word becomes flesh – the Idea becomes Fact. All other faiths are the word become word, the idea projected as an idea. In Jesus the Idea walked. It spoke in human life and manifested Itself in human relationships. It transformed religion from idealism to realism. Where this faith is sincerely tried, it becomes incarnate as fact. It works in human relationships. And where it is tried, it produces something so exquisitely beautiful that we stand ‘lost in wonder, love, and praise.’”
E. Stanley Jones, Growing Spiritually
Let us show the world that it's true, in our hearts, today.
