About:

Exciting New Teaching from Bestselling Author and Bethel Church Leader Bill Johnson

Two realities are evident in today’s broken world: Our culture is in desperate need, and our God is a miracle-working God. How do believers answer the world’s cries for help in a way that exhibits God’s heart of compassion?

According to bestselling author Bill Johnson, we simply embrace two additional realities: God’s wisdom and his power. With biblical insight and extensive experience of seeing God’s hand at work, Johnson offers keys to how believers can have the greatest impact on society. When we understand the long-term strategy of God’s wisdom and the immediacy of his miracle-working power, we can create eternal impact and significance in the here and now, whether in our own lives and communities or in the farthest reaches of the world.

My thoughts:

This book will challenge you to have a impact right where you live, in the areas in which you work and share community. Not just church. Actually, Bill shares that our greatest job might just be the influence we have on our communities outside the church walls with “pre-believers”.

He gave me so much to think about as a teacher with influence in children’s lives. I love what he shares in the first chapter, “When we are seen as servants who have no agenda except to love, we are given access to the heart of the community.”

Later he states, “And wisdom is the key if we are to fully manifest the purpose of the God on earth in our lifetime.”

Wisdom. I have just finished reading through Proverbs and wisdom is so important. The only way for us to gain wisdom is to be in the Father’s presence. We must take time to do that. When we do we will see not only our life transformed but those around us too because of the love that overflows from us onto them.

I could share so many more wonderful quotes from this book, but really you should just read it. It really is so good and Bill is such a good teacher, whether you’re listening to him speak or reading one of his books.
