Litfuse Publicity Tours Presents: Practicing the Presence of Jesus: Experience the Gift of His Friendship by Wally Armstrong
Do you want to experience Jesus as real? When we look at Jesus’ life on earth, we see Him calling people to simply know Him. He made no demand on them to believe theological propositions. “Follow me” was the invitation which they accepted. They got to know and communicate with the real person. There is a big difference between believing something is true and experiencing it as real. This is the story of how Wally Armstrong learned to communicate with the real person of Jesus in his everyday life. Armstrong experiences Jesus up close and personal and introduces readers to the same experience. In a conversational manner, he explores what it is like to have a relationship with Jesus as if He is sitting right there next to us. He keeps an empty chair ready and imagines Jesus sitting beside him as they talk.
About The Author
I especially loved the story of the old Scotchman, he had a chair in his room just for Christ to sit it. It reminded him to keep Christ close and have ongoing conversations with him. When he passed away his hand was on the chair....he traveled along with Jesus! There are many pictures of this empty chair throughout the book. A reminder to keep the conversations going.
I think maybe the Amish or Amish Woman wearing their reminder of a prayer cap is an excellent reminder...keep talking to God.
This book is a good reminder that our Lord is looking at us as Friends...he gave us his ultimate gift. The Author is sharing a wonderful gift with us. Enjoy, and savor.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
