“The core problem isn’t the fact that we’re lukewarm, halfhearted, or stagnant Christians. The crux of it all is why we are this way, and it is because we have an inaccurate view of God. We see Him as a benevolent Being who is satisfied when people manage to fit Him into their lives in some small way. We forget that God never had an identity crisis. He knows that He’s great and deserves to be the center of our lives. Jesus came humbly as a servant, but He never begs us to give Him some small part of ourselves. He commands everything from His followers.” Francis Chan from the book:
Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God
Pastors Rick and Nina were privileged to hear the teachings of Francis Chan during one of his recent seminars. They found it refreshing to hear a world renowned Pastor/Speaker share truths from the Word of God regarding what it means to Love as God loves. Truths, that they too had come to know, from Jesus himself. You can read Pastor Rick and Pastor Nina’s own personal stories in The Main Thing by Rick Tidwell with Co-author Nina Tidwell. And – Love Awakens, by Nina Tidwell.
We highly recommend Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God & Letters To The Church – by Francis Chan
