The next book that had a profound impact on me was “The Spirit Contemporary Life” by Leon Fontaine.
In this book he shares lots of stories of how his life transformed by just praying for people. He did not used big fancy words, but simple words in a natural every way. He simply prayed and left the results to God. Often someone would be healed or receive Christ as a result.
I enjoyed this book so much that I bought the audio version to listen in my car as I travel to my work as a School Chaplain.
Here is the blurb from the publisher…
How would your world change if you regularly experienced the miraculous? And what if this happened everywhere you went-in a way that attracted people to Jesus? It wouldn’t just make a difference in your world…it would make the world different.
It might sound too good to be true…but that’s the Spirit Contemporary life.
While working as a first responder in an ambulance, Leon Fontaine longed to see God’s power at work outside the four walls of the church. He learned through many life-changing experiences that we can all unlock the miraculous in a way that works anywhere-at home, in a hospital, at work-with anyone!
The Spirit Contemporary way of life involves communicating with others as Jesus would…using their language, stories, and settings. Leon draws on biblical truth and personal stories to reveal how this dynamic first-century faith can be yours when you live so in tune with God that you’re guided in ways that are both natural and supernatural.
