After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to "listen" to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus' point of view, thus the title "Jesus Calling." It is Sarah's fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.
Knowing Jesus on a deeper, more personal level means sharing all aspects of your life with Him…every day. In Dear Jesus, Sarah Young exemplifies what it means to do this-to dialogue with the Savior. She begins each of the 120 devotionals by sharing intimate struggles and longings that weigh on the heart-being preoccupied with problems; being dissatisfied with oneself, and other spiritual issues. Jesus then responds in His loving way by giving guidance and encouragement, using Scripture as the foundation from which His words flow. Readers will be drawn into the presence of God through these spiritual letters of grace.
In the Jesus Calling® Bible Storybook, parents and children will love reading through the Bible and seeing God’s exciting plan unfold. God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die for our sins and made a plan for us to live forever with Him.
From creation to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to the apostles and the early church, Jesus has always been present with those who trust Him. This book helps children understand Jesus’ role throughout the Old Testament, the New Testament, and their lives today. The stories will teach them about the Bible, and the devotions will lead them to an early and close walk with Jesus.
