Crazy Love...

Our small group is going through the book, Crazy Love together. It's written by Francis Chan. We are two weeks into it so far, and I'm loving it. It's a really easy read, but powerful at the same time. Here are some things that have struck me, taken from the first few chapters:

-"As much as we want God to explain himself to us, His creation, we are in no place to demand that He give an account to us." pg. 33

-"When we face the holy God, "nice" isn't what we will be concerned with, and it definitely isn't what He will be thinking about. Any compliments you received on earth will be gone; all that will be left for you is truth...All that matters is the reality of who we are before God." pg. 50

I'm just starting the chapter on the Lukewarm, convicting for sure. But I think the best part of all of this has been getting to discuss it with our friends. There are also great video's available online to watch as you read each chapter. I highly recommend reading it. You will be "Overwhelmed by a relentless God..."
