Best Friends with God: Falling in Love with the God Who Loves You
2010 (Now in a fourth printing!)
Paperback, 128 pages
Features study questions at the end of each chapter.
It can be challenging to have a relationship with God. We can’t see Him, or touch Him, or interact with Him in the ways we are accustomed to interacting with people. And yet, God sent His Son to die a hero’s death to win our hearts so we could have a relationship with Him. A relationship! More than anything else, God wants a relationship—with YOU!
People in the Bible had a dynamic relationship with God. He interacted with them, demonstrating His love for them by responding to their specific circumstances and needs. God wants to interact with us in the same way. As we bring our needy hearts to Him, He will demonstrate His love for us as individuals by responding to our specific circumstances. And, as we experience His gestures of love toward us, we cannot help but respond to Him with love.
Whether you have difficulty accepting God’s love for you, or you have trouble feeling a heartfelt love for God, Best Friends with God will help you develop the intimacy with God that you long to experience.
Each chapter of Best Friends with God begins with a narrative of a Bible character and ends with study questions.
