Love isnt a warm feeling. Love isnt a good idea. Love does.
January 24, 2015
You will love to read this book. Its basically a collection of short stories from Bob Goffs life and the predicaments he gets into or the amazing things he has been able to do. Half the time I was laughing so hard I was crying and the other half I was deeply touched. Bob has the winsome quality of a child who is not afraid to ask BIG. He says yes to everything possible. And his audacity has opened such incredible doors that sometimes he thinks its a prank (such as when he was asked to become Honorary Consul for the Republic of Uganda to the United States).
Id love to recount some of Bobs stories, but I really want you to read this book for yourself. I could barely put it down. But its not just a collection of humorous and heartwarming stories; the stories serve as powerful examples of what is possible when we surrender our lives to showing Gods love to others. Love isnt a warm feeling. Love isnt a good idea. Love does. Love takes action.
I want to live a life that takes risks for God. I want to live a life God can use because Im available and willing to do love. I want to begin saying yes to God.
The book closes with the question: What does God want me to do next?
Ill let you answer for yourself after you read the book.
