Jesus is Everything
Dr. Bruce Hartman pt 2
Many people today are always striving to move up the next rung on the career ladder. Always trying to get more, do more or be more. But, what happens when you achieve it? What’s next? How many would put on their resume that, they would leave it the corporate world behind and enter into their true life’s calling – of serving the Lord?
My guest today has done just that. Dr. Bruce L. Hartman, a former CFO for Fortune 500 firms, such as Yankee Candle Company and Foot Locker, he left the corporate world to follow Jesus and received his Doctorate in ministry. In a storytelling fashion, he gives practical insights on how to have a strong faith life and the power of Jesus. His first four books, “Jesus & Company”, “Your Faith Has Made You Well” , and about a year ago, Dr. Hartman was on our program discussing his book, “Spend A Year With Jesus”, But today, we will be concluding our discussion of his recent book, titled, “Jesus Is Everything: Discovering It All When There Is Nothing Left But Jesus.”
To live our Faith, to openly serve and proclaim Jesus as Lord, as you say, to “live the Gospel,” – that requires courage in this current politically correct climate today. Does your book share how someone who may be struggling with sharing their Faith, how they can find the courage to take a Faith stand in the face of this kind of opposition?
You share that following Jesus is simple to understand – but hard to be completely faithful 100% of the time. What should we do when we come up short and are now feeling a sense of “letting the Lord down?”
In the first chapter of your book, you discuss “The man in the bed.” Can you explain this concept?
You teach that Jesus is able to give us total freedom, if we are obedient. Doesn’t that seem like a conflicting statement? Freedom versus Obedience?
Dr. Bruce, you share in your book that Jesus is the ONLY permanent force in our life. How can someone use that type of relationship to move forward in this world which we find ourselves in? What with the COVID lockdowns, the protests, the political instability, etc. How can someone come to the place of just leaning on the Lord and trusting in Him?
Before we finish today, I want to talk about your podcast for a little bit. Tell us about your podcast, “A Closer Walk with Jesus.”
How long have you been doing this podcast?
Dr. Bruce, this has been a fascinating interview. I do want people to know how to get in touch with you. If someone wanted to reach out, ask a question, etc., how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with or get more information?
How can they get a copy of your book? Is it on Amazon?
Folks, Dr. Bruce Hartman’s book, “Jesus Is Everything: Discovering It All When There Is Nothing Left But Jesus.” Is a must read. In this book, Dr. Bruce Hartman uncovers the REAL JESUS – the man behind the religious legend. And, Dr. Hartman shares what Jesus wants us to accomplish with our lives as well. This book is written for real people, just like you and me, who are seeking answers to real life issues. And for those answers, Dr. Hartman is pointing everyone to Jesus.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for you to get a copy of this great book. Actually, you need to order two or three copies! Amen! I know that you know one or two others that would benefit greatly from Dr. Hartman’s book, “Jesus Is Everything: Discovering It All When There Is Nothing Left But Jesus.”
