What does it mean to pursue a Deeper Walk with the Lord? In essence, a Deeper Walk with Jesus Christ is the result of pursuing the Person of God first and foremost. It’s not hard to get sidetracked by doctrinal discussions and scriptural interpretations and missions and ministries and all the myriad minutiae about God. But a relationship with the Lord that is focused on anything other than the Person of God Himself is consequentially a shallow walk, “like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.” Here is a collection of books written by men and women whose house “was founded on the rock” (Matthew 7).
Jeanne Guyon was imprisoned for her testimony of pursuing a Deeper Walk with the Lord in Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ. To glimpse the radical, unconquerable Life of Christ shining out of a surrendered vessel, this book is not to be missed. In similar fashion, Martha Kilpatrick’s Adoration explores the only Deeper Walk that Jesus commanded us to commemorate whenever the gospel is told. What deep and holy secrets are hidden in the unassuming life of Mary of Bethany that Jesus praised her so singularly of all His followers? Pick up a copy today and find out!
Andrew Murray wrote over 200 books, each of them a Holy Spirit-inspired testimony of Jesus Christ as he knew and loved Him. Especially poignant and relevant to a Deeper Walk are these three: Humility, Absolute Surrender, and Abide in Christ. Likewise, Major Ian Thomas opens If I Perish, I Perish with the statement, “I know of nothing quite so boring as Christianity without Christ.” If boring is a word that aptly describes your life with God, and you want something more, pursue a Deeper Walk with the Lord by seeking out His Person with all your heart.
