Review: Jesus, Continued…by J. D. Greear

I read a lot of books. I have lost count of all the books that I have read so far this year. This one easily ranks at the top of that list. The words of Greear have molded me in the short time I have had this book and is one that could easily find its place in a yearly cycle. The main idea behind the book is why the Spirit inside of you is better than Jesus beside you. At first glance, it seems almost sacrilegious; however, there is a great amount of truth in that statement. Read that thought and let it sink in a little bit. The Spirit inside of you is better than Jesus beside you.

This book was released at an appropriate time in my own life. I am a pastor and in some ways, I can identify with the author. I have not seen the Holy Spirit move in my own life as much recently as I would like. If that makes me less of a pastor, then so be it. I believe there is power in admitting our faults and our discouragement. I know that it is possible that it is because I have seen the Holy Spirit used as an excuse to rip people to shreds or to proclaim words of God that are completely off base. Through this book, the Holy Spirit has worked on me. I have began to allow Him the opportunity to speak to me more freely and to know that God is working things out in my own life even if I make mistakes.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
