Experience the Power and Love of God in Everyday Life

We believe in God, we serve God, we trust God, but would we say that we enjoy God on a day to day basis? What exactly does a personal relationship with God look like, and how is it even possible?

This seminal work by Tim Chester shows us how we can enjoy God in every moment of every day, whether we are experiencing good times or hard times; whether we are changing nappies, or stuck on a train. He explores how the Father, the Son and the Spirit relate to us in our day-to-day lives, and how to respond.

As we interact more with God and understand how awesome he is, we will experience joy in our service, our witness, our sacrifices and our suffering.

Endorsements:

Tim Chester’s books are always unusually accessible. He can distill great amounts of complex theological truth into short, digestible chapters. In this book, he brings this skill to bear on the subject of communion with God—perhaps the greatest privilege of a Christian. But it is one little understood, and even less is it actually enjoyed. I urge you to read this volume. It will make you hunger and thirst for fellowship with God.  ~Timothy Keller, Pastor Emeritus, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Manhattan; author, The Reason for God

Winsome in its unpacking of theology and compelling in the sweep of its applications, Enjoying God is neither an essay on the Trinity nor a "how to" manual, but something close to both. It is among the best of the rising number of books that instruct Christians on how to cross the bridge from enjoying God on the Lord's Day to enjoying God every day. Tim Chester is in no danger of making God little more than a useful utility to increase our pleasure; he is far too God-centered and gospel-centered for that. But if we desire to experience for ourselves a little more (one of Tim's favorite words) of the truth that in God's presence there are pleasures forever more, we shall be hard-pressed to find a better guide.  ~D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and President of The Gospel Coalition
 
We talk a lot about knowing and glorifying God, but what about enjoying him? And not just as an abstract Being, but as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit—enjoying each Person in all of his difference as well as divine unity? And not just in happy times or at church, but in every circumstance of life? It just keeps getting better and better as you turn each page of Enjoying God. This book will lift you into the presence of the Source of all joy.  ~

Michael Horton, 

Westminster Seminary, California
 
From the authors of Scripture onwards, the Lord's people have always known that the purpose of life is "to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever". But each generation, in fact every Christian, needs to discover this anew. And the way is not an easy one. But it is the only path worth taking. In Enjoying God, Tim Chester shares his own experiences in walking along this gospel road and issues a warm invitation to join him. Accept it, and, with Tim Chester as your guide, you will never regret it.  ~Sinclair B Ferguson, Chancellor's Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
 
 The best books are biblical, practical, personal, pastoral, and worshipful. Enjoying God is one of those rare books that excels in each area. I commend it highly.  ~Jason Meyer, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church
