5.0 out of 5 stars A Book Saturated with God's Presence!, December 15, 1999
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Pursuit of God (Hardcover)
This is one of a few books I've read that, upon reading it, actually manifested God's presence. In line with the teaching of the book, God impressed upon me his love and his desire for a more intimate relationship. I broke into tears. Few books have had that impact. The chapter entitled "The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing" is a profound call to absolute simplicity and abandonment to God who owns everything you may think you "possess", including yourself! Surrender it all to God and see what miracles will be wrought for His glory. Let God possess you! For those who want other recommendations, try "The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life" by Hannah Whitall Smith, "A Testament of Devotion" by Thomas Kelly, "Abandonment to Divine Providence" by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, "The Practice of the Presence of God" by Brother Lawrence and, for those who want to experience God's holiness in a powerful way, "The Holiness of God" by R.C. Sproul. - Brad Clark

No one is telling or asking you to give anything up to any church. This reviewer is simply expressing the principle that letting go of things that hold our attention away from Christ will bring you into a deeper relationship with him. There's nothing wrong with acquiring and owning things, but in the life of a born again follower of Christ, they can be hindrances to growth if not viewed in the correct light. Nothing I have is going with me when I die, and really it's not going to matter a hill of beans once I'm gone either. What counts is Christ and whether or not I put him first in my life. That is where true freedom is.
