For thousands of years, scholars, even without the help of advanced technology, were able to plot the courses of planets and stars with such accuracy that cosmic events could be predicted decades in advance.

It's so easy to forget once we become Christians that we still need Jesus. He's not just for salvation, but for every minute of every day thereafter.

My favorite parts were how Jesus even has grace for when I forget that I need him, and how prayer is simply a conversation between friends. I recommend this book highly to all Christians.

Charles and Janet Morris of Haven Ministries mention a passage in a book that refers to Jesus as a "personal glow light."
