Many churches, even really good ones, have mastered the believe-and-become-before-you-belong paradigm of accepting people into their fellowship. We say: choose to believe what we believe, become like us in your behavior, and then you can belong here. One day, Mike Clarensau asked himself the question: "What if we put belonging first, like Jesus did?" Christ welcomed people to follow Him without proclamations of faith or fruits of repentance. When Mike acted on that thought, his view of people changed, and his church set about loving people unconditionally. The congregation put belonging ahead of believing and becoming. When it did, people's lives and the life of the church were powerfully transformed-and more than a few got saved.

Pastor BenFresno, CaAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great and convicting read.August 29, 2013Pastor BenFresno, CaAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book does an excellent job and getting people to see people the way Jesus sees them. Too often we as Christian's expect people to behave in a specific manor (usually depending on ones denominational standards of acceptable Christian living) and forget that Christ loved first, and corrected second.
Thanks for such a great read! God bless
