|P. C. Vey, in the New Yorker|
Right now at Redeemer Tim Curry and I are preaching about revival, awakening, and mission. Recently, I did two Sunday mornings on 2 Chronicles 7:14.
We are promised that when God's people humble themselves, pray, seek God's face, and turn from their wicked ways, then God's eyes and ears will be with them, and his name will be there. Which means, God will be there, presently, in our experience.
The words of 2 Chronicles 7:14 are for the purpose of pointing us to God's promised presence. The words without God's presence would be like reading books on ice cream, while never tasting it. God's words always point us to himself.
My two books are:
Praying: Reflections on 40 Years of Solitary Conversations with God (May 2016)
Leading the Presence-Driven Church (January 2018)
I am now writing:
How God Changes the Human Heart
Technology and Spiritual Formation
Linda and I plan to co-write our book on Relationships
