I recently read Joseph Stowell's Simply Jesus. I so enjoyed reading this book. Stowell's love for the Lord and closeness to Him drew me in.

His main point? "You can be satisfied to just know about Him, or you can enter into an experience with Jesus." I don't know about you, but I definitely want to experience Him.

Stowell addresses why many of us don't have a closer walk with the Lord. Simply put, He's not our priority. (Painful, but so true.) We'd rather put ourselves first than put Him first. We must clean our slates, so to speak, through confession and repentance. And not get caught up in ourselves, our own good works.

The good news, Stowell reminds us, is that Jesus rewards those who seek Him. And, once you've tasted His goodness, you can never get enough.

Stowell points out the changes we need to make: rejoice in the Lord, in what He has done, and value Jesus above everything. He will meet us in our hard places when we totally surrender to Him.

I only wish this book were longer! The upside? It's a quick read.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
