My Tesla, Jesus, and Me


My Tesla, Jesus, and Me

I never really wanted to buy a Tesla. I wanted to buy another car, another brand, something else. I didn't go looking for a Tesla, I went looking for something else to replace my old, broken-down, and worn-out car.

But the more I look, the more I studied, the more I evaluated, the more I thought, I came to the conclusion that I did not want to come to. Tesla was to be my next car.

I kept thinking, “No, this doesn’t make sense. What happens if it stops working? Where will I be able to get it fixed? What happens if I run out of power?”

Perhaps that's where you are in your spiritual journey. Looking for something, hoping for something, but it just doesn't seem right. And maybe, just maybe you're coming to the position and place where you need to make a decision for someone that you really don't want to. Jesus, might just be that someone.

“My Tesla, Jesus, and Me” is a journey of how I worked my way through my past, habits, fears, and expectations. The result lead to a fundamental shift not only in the way I drive, but the way I live. My hope is that it may help you in the same way.

What people have said

"This magnificent book is a Christmas present all on its own. With immensely learned thinking shaping and informing the available, engaging, immersive narrative, Chester Gladkowski emerges as our G.K. Chesterton. He brings the Christmas story right up to date addressing contemporary life with vernacular turns of phrase and fidelity to the original narrative yielding fresh appreciation of Christ's birth and its abundant blessings. T.S. Eliot remarked of Chesterton that "he was importantly and consistently on the side of the angels." The same's true of Chester Gladkowski and this unalloyed gift to One & All. A great gift!!!!"

“For many people, Christmas is a holiday brimming with hope as they celebrate the coming of Jesus into our world as God in the flesh! Yet for many, 2020 has been a year of upheaval, making it hard to experience the usual hope that Christmas brings. However, in this Christmas devotional Chet seeks to infuse his readers with the hope that may seem so elusive this year. His writing is engaging, wry, practical, and thoroughly biblical. We all could use a daily dose of this writing this Christmas season so we can reclaim the hope Christ came to bring us.”
