It is not scientific doubt, not athiesm, not pantheism, not agnosticism, that in our day and in this land are likely to "quench the light of the Gospel". It is a proud, sensuous, selfish, luxurious, church-going, hollow-hearted prosperous man. (Crazy Love by: Francis Chan)
This one smacked me! I have been so convicted over the past few years and months.....this would be too much to post, but God has been challenging me to give more, to live a more radical life. I am convicted that if my life does not make unbelievers ask "why" then my service and lifestyle are far too similar to the unbeliever. Anyway, one of the books (in addition to God's Word) that the Holy Spirit has used in Crazy Love.
In response to an awesome, faithful, loving God....my worship will be so intense that it may even be perceived as "crazy".
