BookLookBlogger Review: The One Jesus Loves

This book was sent to me courtesy of BookLookBlogger in return for my honest review.

It is by the author Robert Crosby and is called The One Jesus Loves. It has 272 pages and then discussion questions in the back of the book.  It is about the circle of people that surround Christ. There are 6: The crowd, The five thousand, The seventy, The twelve, The three and finally The one. See God created us to be relationship beings...not just with each other but with him (Creation with Creator).   

The gist of the book is our main pursuit in this life is to draw closer to God. The book clearly breaks down all the circles so that we can see and relate to them today. You will find yourself in each group at some point in time in your life. You may go back and forth between some and that is ok the main point is to want to draw closer to God. God wants intimacy with you and me. He longs to know you just like you long to know Him. He wants to hear about your day. He want you to read His word and seek/listen to Him speak to your heart. He wants you to learn and apply. To sit and eat with Him. He want your to deliberately and constantly seek Him moment by moment. He want you to want closeness withHim and   not just be in the crowds but be in His inner circles. Be His best friend. Be His Beloved.

This book will change your life. You will want a deeper more intimate relationship with Jesus. 

This book is not written way over your head. It is an easy read but take it section by section and let its truth sink into your heart. Let it awaken and strengthen that inner longing for a deeper relationship with Jesus. Jesus can't wait to draw you close to Him.
