Today's culture is overscheduled, typically characterized by short attention spans. We want to compress our lives into small, bite-sized pieces. Taking this approach with Jesus can draw us into a relationship that becomes the focus of our delight. Eventually, our desire for true life is whetted by brief meetings with Jesus. The longer we spend with Him, the more His divinely radioactive life infuses ours with the power of an endless life. The irony of the book title is that five minutes with Jesus is never enough.
Five Minutes with Jesus presents a daily devotional that focuses on meeting with Jesus in ways that may be new to some Christians. Each day, author Randal Wiedemann takes a look at a different aspect of Jesus, the most discussed person in history. Wiedemann focuses on how to live the Christian faith with delight, depth, meaning, compassion, and joy. You will discover and be reminded that this is only possible when Jesus Christ lives in and through us.
Five Minutes with Jesus is about spending quality time with God. For those who know Jesus, it is a joy to go to that secret inner place of the heart and meet with Him. For those who do not, there may be a vague sense of looking for something. You may not know what it is you are looking for, but when you find it, don't be surprised if it's Jesus.
