Jesus Beside Me is a collection of 30 meditations on the words of Jesus in Matthew (Volume 1 covers chapters 4 through 7 of Matthew). Each one captures a different aspect of Jesus’ mission, character and power.
A meditation expresses “considered thought on a subject.” Jesus Beside Me approaches Matthew passage by passage and gives each phrase of Jesus’ speech “considered thought.” The result includes both devotional and mindful reading that will engage the readers heart, mind and soul.
The book also serves as a reminder of the constant presence of our Savior. “We do not serve a Lord far off. We do not pray to an inattentive Master. Our Jesus is ever near, always close, right beside us.”
