DaisySum70USAAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A must read for every ChristianJune 30, 2015DaisySum70USAAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book of Bill Myers that I have read and I enjoyed reading it so much that I will be looking out for this author in the near future. This book was an easy read and it helped with simplifying my relationship with Jesus Christ. I think that we tend to complicate things and this helped me to take a step back and look at the grand picture. I run around trying to please God and just focus on the destination when I should be concentrating on the journey itself. Chapter 4 and 5 were mind blowing and heart altering. I am changing the lens in which I look at things and be more aware of Gods divine plan for me. Bill Myers has a way of telling a story which keeps you wanting to learn more. It is a book that must be shared and I plan on sharing with my loved one.
I received this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
ConnieKentuckyAge: Under 18Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A Must Read!June 29, 2015ConnieKentuckyAge: Under 18Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0In the second paragraph of Bill Myers 's introduction to The Jesus Experience he tells me exactly what I have been feeling recently! Trying to introduce different programs that will lure new people to worship and then, keeping those programs afloat, I find myself feeling drained and missing the deep relationship with Jesus that I crave.
Bill Myers uses many of his own experiences to illustrate how too much busy work detracts from the joy we should be feeling and he often uses humor, sometimes at his own expense, to "hammer the point" home.
I especially appreciated the questions at the end of each chapter. i was able to use them to reinforce some of the points he was offering.
I will definitely recommend this book to others who also have been caught in a Mary/Martha syndrome. It is a wonderful tool to help us all regain our joy in Jesus!
ByHisGraceGiftsSioux Falls, SDAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Are You A Disillusioned Martha? Then This Book is For You!June 29, 2015ByHisGraceGiftsSioux Falls, SDAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Bill Myers begins his new book, The Jesus Experience, with the premise that understanding the difference between being "an overworked servant with an impossible agenda" (Martha) and "a son who basks in the love and friendship of his Father" (Mary) is how to prevent our faith from drying up. Mr. Myers also offers 3 scriptural cornerstones for ones walk with God and illustrates each with personal testimony from his life. He asks the question, "What would you do differently today if you truly believed that God loves you - I mean really loves you?" His newest book is an easy read. You will find yourself laughing while cruising through some pages and slamming on the brakes to a crawl while pondering others. A fresh look at loving others as God loves us.
JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Let God Hold and Adore YouJune 28, 2015JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you read only one book about the Lord this year, make this the one! When I read the description, there was no way I couldnt not read it. The Jesus Experience Journey Deeper into the Heart of God, is in appearance a unimposing book. Written by Bill Myers, the man who wrote the McGee and Me book and video series and many others, would almost lead one to think that this guy must really have The Pipeline to the Lord. He must have the most fantastic relationship with God to ask, much less answer, those intriguing questions on the back cover.
God is so full of surprises! Bill Myers is a human just like you and me, a child of God who has had the same struggles and doubts that I have. He is also one who learned to say Yes to God in many ventures that have brought countless people to believe in Jesus. One might correctly assume that he is an overachiever. Yes, he is an overachiever in the sense that, like me, he believed he had to do something to make himself worthy of Christs love and sacrifice.
The author has been working for the Lord for many years and has travelled around the world to bring Gods love to life for people of all ages. His life for Christ has been busy, and he is always doing, doing, doing. He shares that one day it was as if the Lord asked, Son, if I were to put you in a coma and you could not talk to others about Me, could not serve me in any way, would I be enough for you? (p. 37) I cringed at the question, having many things I thought important taken away in recent years. Even the relationship I had with my Savior wasnt as solid as I tried to make it. I questioned the few things I could still do was I doing them out of love for God, because His love had changed and moved me, or was I doing them from fear. Fear that they werent enough for God to love me. And God saw fit to put this book in my hands.
Whether one is new in faith or a long-term believer, this book can be a blessing. Using scripture verses that may be familiar to you, the author shows how God loves us. He shows the three scriptures that are, for him, the cornerstones of his walk with God. Check them out. Chew on them for a day, a week or more. Maybe they will speak to you as they have me, or add one that is part of your walk with the Lord.
There is one great truth to take away from this book about Gods love for you that can change your relationship with Him, your love for others, and your service for Him. I wont spoil it but I will share three questions from the back of the book:
WHAT IF CHRISTIANITY WAS A JOYOUS DANCE WITH GOD?
WHAT IF WE GAVE UP RELIGION AND SIMPLY LET HIM HOLD AND ADORE US?
WHAT IF WE FELL SO DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH HIM THAT SERVING AND OBEYING WAS OUR GREATEST PRIVILEGE?
If you learned a lot of religion over the years, a part of you might by jumping up and down, waving a sign that says NO that dancing with God is almost blasphemy that being in love with God is for children. Say yes to being still long enough to let God love you through His Word as the author has been blessed to do so, a man who learned to say Yes to God. To journey deeper into the heart of God, part of this books title, is part of my hearts desire. I hope it is or becomes yours, also.
The Jesus Experience Journey Deeper into the Heart of God is a must for every Christians library. Study your Bible with it, share it, gift others with copies for Gods love is in His Word, in Christ Jesus and His Holy Spirit and others in this broken, hurting world are in desperate need of it.
With a heart more grateful than they can imagine, I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing, Inc. in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
DebbieAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Jesus ExcperienceJune 26, 2015DebbieAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I highly recommend this book to everyone. It has humor about Bill Myers-the author -- in his early walk with God. It makes you stop and think about your own walk with God and how to relate to everyday situations. It reminds us that we can have a personal relationship with God.
I read it at a time one of my grandson's was struggling through a bad situation. It is book I will give him to read. I have never read any of Bill Myers books but I will read them now,
