❝True love requires sacrifice. And our love is shown by how we live our lives❞
I just finished reading this book! It was so thought provoking that I had to put down the book more than once just to examine myself and my personal walk with God.
In Crazy Love, Francis Chan and Danae Yankoski tackles lukewarm Christianity and offers the only reasonable alternative - a radically transformed life that is dedicated to simply following the teachings of Jesus Christ. The heart of the book boils down to answering this question: Do I love the LORD, my God, with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my strength? The answer to this question will determine ones motivations and inclination for every action and reaction.
Chapters 1, 4 and 9 are my personal favourites. Chapter 1 provides a great description of an infinite God, reminding us of who we are in comparison to who God is. Chapter 4 talks about the profile of a lukewarm Christian. Chapter 9 contains stories of Christ-followers who are completely sold out for Christ in our day and age.
The statement that stuck with me the most after reading the book is this: "I just dont know if this is where I want to be when Christ returns. Id rather be helping someone or on my knees praying. I dont want Him to return and find me sitting in a theater."
I highly recommend this book to those who want to be really serious about their faith, as reading this book will move you to take action.
