Devotional: Experience God with all 5 senses

By Group Publishing,

Learning about Jesus is one thing. Experiencing him every day is something completely different. A new book is inviting readers to do just that while using all five of their senses.

Jesus-Centered Daily: See. Hear. Touch. Smell. Taste is a year-long devotional from Group Publishing filled with 365 daily experiences that guide readers into a more intimate relationship with Jesus.

Rick Lawrence, author of Jesus-Centered Daily, explained the new devotional was created to help readers grow their faith in the same manner Jesus used as he walked the earth.

“When we think about Jesus’ teaching, often we picture him standing on a mountainside with people down below him listening to a ‘sermon,'” Lawrence explained. “But in reality, Jesus taught as he went, using nature, interaction, and even debates to help people learn more about his true character and what it means to live in relationship with him. This devotional uses the same approach to prompt and grow your relationship with Jesus in an everyday way.”

Each daily devotion features a short scripture passage, questions to ponder, a prayer prompt, a word from Jesus, and a unique sensory-based experience. These elements work together to help readers encounter Jesus on a deeper level.

The year-long devotional is the newest member of the Jesus-Centered line of resources, joining the bestselling Jesus-Centered Bible, the popular book The Jesus-Centered Life, and the weekly podcast Paying Ridiculous Attention to Jesus.

Rick Lawrence is an award-winning author, journalist, cultural researcher, editor, and national speaker. He creates and leads interactive trainings for church and cultural leaders, parents, and teenagers. He’s authored hundreds of magazine articles and is the author, co-author, or editor of 39 books and curriculums. He’s the general editor of the bestselling Jesus-Centered Bible and author of the recently released books The God Who Fights for You, Spiritual Grit, and The Jesus-Centered Life.
