Jesus, Continued: Why the Spirit Inside You Is Better than Jesus Beside You is now available for pre-order.
Anyone who pre-orders (book delivers on Nov 4) will get two free gifts—a digital download of a five-song sampler from The Summit Church Music’s latest CD (with my favorite songs from it!) and a seven-day devotional based on Jesus, Continued.
About the title: Jesus, Continued… Jesus said that through the church Jesus would “continue” his work. It wasn’t that in his earthly life he worked and now the church works in his absence… the Holy Spirit is the continuation of Jesus’ ministry on earth, now through his body, the church. Luke opens the book of Acts by saying that his Gospel was the story of all that Jesus “began” to do and teach. In other words, what Jesus began in Luke’s Gospel, he continues through his church in Acts.
