Feel like you’ve lost any sense of closeness? Both with God, and with people in your life?
You are not the only one. We all drift away from depth and closeness in our relationships because they are often difficult, terrifying, and require us to share parts of ourselves we would prefer to keep hidden. But retreating is not the answer. We were made for relationships.
I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me is John Ortberg’s call for us to rediscover intimacy in our relationships with God, and with other people. It explores how that biggest obstacle to creating meaningful relationships is our being easily put-off by other’s differences. We think that because they aren’t like us, they can’t understand us. They are simply too different.
But, that’s how we were all made. To be different from one another.
That obstacle is, it appear, to be a self made one. We think other people are more unlike us than they really are.
John Ortberg shows that it shared experiences, rather than differences, that we must recognize if we want to make deep relationships we can rely upon. When we invite, and are invited, into shared experiences a new closeness is created. When we rely on God, and share our lives with our faith, a new way of experiencing closeness can be found. A model of relationships that can help us grow, and flourish.
I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me is a call to that life. To closeness, to intimacy, and to a new way of life.
I'd Like You More if You Were More like Me by John Ortberg was published by Tyndale House Publishers in October 2017 and is our 516th best seller. The ISBN for I'd Like You More if You Were More like Me is 9781496429568.
Getting Close with John Ortberg
Posted: Wednesday, September 13th
I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me takes on one of life's most important questions: How can I get closer to God and other people?
We were created for deep connections. When people have deep connections, says John Ortberg, they win in life. When they don't have deep connections, they cannot win in life. I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me offers help in overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to making deep connections: the fact that we're so different. Different from God and different from each other.
The good news is that connectedness is not based on similarity, but on shared experiences. When one person invites another to share an experience, they're connected. It can be sharing a beautiful sunset or a meal, having a great conversation over cup of coffee, going for walk, or even teasing somebody.And when we share those same experiences with God, we get closer to him, too. God wants to connect with us--so much that he sent his son to live as a human being. God took on flesh and shared every human experience. So we don't have to wonder what a close relationship with God looks like anymore.
An intimate relationship with God and other people doesn't have to be a cliche, it can be a daily way of life.
