Overview

What does it mean to live desperate for Jesus? That depends on the Jesus you know. Some of us run to Him when things go wrong and move away from Him when life is smooth, but there's a better way to live.
 
John Hannah helps you grow more mature in your relationship with Jesus by revealing his testimony of crying out for, and finding, Jesus. As he pulls you into his own story, Hannah also studies heroes of the Bible: Moses, the blind beggar, the bleeding woman, Mary Magdalene, King David, Peter, and Jairus. Each one pursued Christ.
 
Desperate for Jesus helps believers identify and conquer six obstacles:
 
Difficult seasons in life
Anger
Family
Betrayal
Spiritual immaturity
The flesh
 
The more we crave Jesus, the more He will  transform us and those around us. It’s time to live desperate!
