At this very moment, you are encountering the Living God. You may not feel it- probably because, like most people, you're simply trying to get through the day or maybe just the next hour-but you can't help it nonetheless. Whatever you're doing, you are encountering God because he promises he'll be with you, guiding you at every ticking moment. But what does it matter? As Christians, we tend to accept that Jesus' life-giving presence fades into the background when we go about our daily tasks, or fight with our spouses, or enjoy a great movie, or cave in to temptation. But what if encountering and truly experiencing Jesus' power occurs even now, even when we're not trying to? In Hullabaloo, pastor and theologian Timothy Paul Jones plumbs the Scriptures, his own deeply personal history, and the stories of many others to beautifully illuminate just how present God really is and just how much it can change our lives.
