Spend some intimate moments with the Savior, and you'll learn to love as he did. This devotional interweaves NIV Scripture passages with sensitive meditations and heartfelt prayers. Each meditation captures an encounter between Jesus and one person, and shows how that encounter radically changed a life. You'll walk where Jesus walked, see the people he saw, and understand what those people saw in Jesus. And, moment by intimate moment, you'll be changed. Foreword by Chuck Swindoll. 145 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.
Intimate Moments with the Savior is a devotional tapestry, richly woven from the threads of Scripture, meditation, and prayer. It captures the intimate moments Jesus spent with individuals and how those moments forever changed their lives. In reliving those life-changing moments, you will walk where Jesus walked. You will travel with him in the sweltering heat to a Samaritan well. You will stand with him on the windswept shores of Galilee. You will ascend with him up the fateful step of Calvary. At those places, you will see the people Jesus saw. Your heart will melt for Peter, ache for the hemorrhaging woman, and break for Judas. You will also see what these people saw in Jesus. You will see the kindness in his face, the forgiveness in his eyes, the power in his hand. With these people, you will reach out to touch the hem of his garment. With them you will weep. With them you will kneel. And moment by intimate moment, you, too, will be changed. Intimate Moments with the Savior is the first book in Ken Gire's award-winning Moments with the Savior series. The second book, Incredible Moments with the Savior, examines the profound meaning of the miracles of Jesus. Instructive Moments with the Savior, the third book is a series of meditations on the parables of Jesus and how they changed the lives of the original hearers. The fourth and last book, Intense Moments with the Savior, takes you inside the mind of Jesus himself.
