"What did Jesus mean when He said, "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you"?
Many Christians think of Jesus as the Savior whose resurrection promises fulfillment in the life to come. Others instead focus on Jesus' moral teachings and his commitment to achieving social justice in the present world. Both views are rooted in scripture, and neither is wrong.
However, each speak only part of the truth of who Jesus is and in SELLING WATER BY THE RIVER, Shane Hipps underscores that Jesus is also, and most importantly, the Master of the inner life-the Teacher who reveals that the object of human beings' deepest longing dwells within each of us.
This life-changing book isn't about "religion" or "spirituality"; it's about realizing that what we search for already resides inside us and how the heaven we long for isn't just a gift when we die but a gift while we live.
Work, sex, ice cream, religion-they all promise fulfillment. But what they deliver is fleeting. Jesus knew about this quest. He came to show us that peace is possible in this life, not just the next one. Yet Christianity, the very religion that claims Jesus as its own, has often built the biggest barriers to him and the life he promised. Celebrated speaker and pastor Shane Hipps revives the faith with a fresh and persuasive understanding of the message of Jesus. The shocking truth is that Jesus proclaimed "eternal life" as a present reality that dwells within each of us. A transformative breakthrough, this book goes beyond "religion" or "spirituality" and cuts to the heart of our humanity and existence. It's about realizing that we already possess what we are searching for, and that the Heaven we long for isn't just a gift when we die, but a gift while we live.
