Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe–the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor–loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss.
Have you ever thought some of those things above? Well, if you have your not alone. We are beginning to go through a book by Francis Chan titled Crazy Love on Wednesday nights in the youth area. I hope you will plan to be a part of it with us. I have asked the youth to take the initiative and get the book for themselves. You can find the book almost at any bookstore, except for Borders because I checked there.
If you can’t get the book right away, click on this link to see a free sample on-line of chapter 1. Let’s not settle for the status quo. Jesus is calling us to a radical, crazy relationship with Him. Unfortunately, it might look even crazy to those inside the church, as much as it should look crazy to those outside the church. Regardless, what type of love is Jesus calling you to? Are you overwhelmed by His love for you?
