How has this impacted your life?

Understanding, purpose and peace have come to me through praying scripture.

Some years ago, I was frustrated by my poor performance as a follower of God. I had been a Child of God for some forty years. I had faith and was exerting much effort into growing closer to God. I memorized and studied scripture and read numerous Christian books. I had hundreds. But I was not growing in my faith. I was not becoming a better person. I concluded that God would not be pleased with me on judgement day.

So, I began to search for writings of those who had suffered for their faith. Was there something in their faith that was so precious and powerful, that they would never let go of it... even in intense persecution? Maybe such a person could guide me. 

After much reading, I settled on the book "Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ", written in 1685 by Jeanne Guyon. This book has had greater impact on my life than any other, except scripture. She spent many years in prison for writing it.

Before reading Guyon's book, I had approached the Bible as a source of knowledge. But Guyon approached scripture as a point of contact... a point of contact for Fellowship with God. Her approach tapped into power. Mine did not. 

Through many years, I compiled scriptures which prove this "fellowship with God". These scriptures are in this book. They are authoritative. They are life changing. That is why I am giving all of it to you, for free.

I am the author, Jim Phillips.

This book came at a time I just wanted to be intimate with God, at a time I couldn't understand scripture and wondered why.... FROM CHIPO

Hello Jim Philip? You are a friend, a brother, a father and most importantly, I take you as what the Lord meant when he said that, "I will send a messenger to make a way before you". This book came at a time I just wanted to be intimate with God, at a time I couldn't understand scripture and wondered why..... For the law was given to us to tutor, to teach us, to bring us closer to God and not to make us righteous, the blood of Jesus through our faith cleanses.... I thank God for choosing me out of the World and sending me a messenger to lay a way before me... The highlights in this book have aided me in finding missing pieces. One has to humble themselves enough to realise that without God you are nothing, but "for him, through him and with him" we can do all things. To God be the Glory Hallelujah!
