Hosting the Presence

Guest Author - Pamela Chambers

Hosting the Presence is a book written by Bill Johnson. The main focus of this book is to allow Christians to understand and become aware of the personal responsibility and authority of hosting the presence of God. This book also demonstrated the responsibility the Christian has when he stewards the presence of God. This book would benefit Christians at every level, from the newly born again, to the well-seasoned Christian who is thirsty for more of God.

This is not a book about religion, but one that is built on foundation truths, starting from the Old Testament to the New Testament and explains the significance of the presence of God within the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.

As a seasoned Christian, I was on the edge of my seat,because the information was enlightening, yet reflective and applicable. This book should not be read one time and placed on the shelf. It should be read and discussed with a book partner, or Christians can get into small groups and share perspectives or ideas after reading chapters.

The workbook is a plus that should be read and used to apply life experiences as one reads the book. Using the workbook helps one to actively participate and reflect on experiences of being in the presence of the Lord and also answer questions that lack understanding.

Johnson demonstrated how Jesus himself, came among humanity and became the perfect example of hosting the presence of God. Johnson reminds the Christian of how Christ became the ultimate sacrifice, who redeemed man from a dying world and made the presence of God available to all who choose to be a witness to host Godís presence.

Hosting the Presence,gives the Christian a greater appreciation for the concept of Godís grace and humility. This book challenged me to address areas of my life that do not line up with what Jesus said and demonstrated through his love for mankind. Johnsonís workbook has daily activities, which allows a person to analyze present and past behaviors as they apply to hosting the presence of the Holy Spirit.

I must reiterate, that this book should not be read once and not even twice. It should be read again and again, because there is such rich biblical wisdom and truths in this book. One should reflect on new understanding and move on to actively becoming a Christian who demonstrates the Holy Spirit with authority and power within all of the earthly realms he travels. This book has caused me to tell other Christians to read this book and read it again. I want to remind others and myself to implement more of the presence of God in our Christian lives.
