There's something in my soul that resonates with the idea of busting out of what's safe and to do something dangerous....but how often do fear and reason win out in my day to day life? Batterson reminds us that we were created for something more. Sometimes that requires disturbing my comfort:
He comforts the afflicted. But like a good counselor, He also afflicts the comfortable. And I came to a place in life where I was uncomfortable with my level of comfort.
And this is what it's all about....
There are moments in life when our passions and the purposes of God converge in what I call supernatural synchronicities. These are moments when we come alive. These are the moments when the sovereignty of God overshadows our incompetencies.As one who is weary of settling for ho-hum Christianity, I loved Batterson's book as a reminder of the adventure this life is supposed to be! It's a quick read (if you're not starting a new school year!) and a good choice for starting out a new semester with a clean slate.
