REVIEW

Is Jesus Important Today?

I think this quote from Chapter 7 says it best:

“We’ve seen that the present-day ministry of Jesus Christ is multifaceted. Jesus hasn’t retired since He ascended into heaven. He’s not gone on vacation. Instead, He’s active in the world. And He’s active in our lives.

The lordship of Jesus over the entire world went into effect when God the Father raised Christ from the dead and enthroned Him in heaven. At that moment, Jesus of Nazareth became this world’s true Lord—Lord of heaven and earth, possessing all authority.”


I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.
