10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Sunday we began a series based on Francis Chan’s book ‘Crazy Love’

Chapter one is titled ‘Stop Praying’

R C Sproul writes “Men are never duly touched and impressed with conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.”

Chan argues that we should spend less time telling God what we want and more time reflecting on who God is. Understanding who God is is critical to growing in relationship with Him and understanding His ability to transform us and our world.

If we want to really grow spiritually then we need to begin by “standing in awed silence before a mighty, fearsome God, whose tremendous worth becomes even more apparent as we see our puny own selves in comparison.” p. 38 What makes this truth all the more wonderful is realizing that this same mighty God loves us enough to want relationship with us.

Next week chapter two: “You Might Not Finish this Chapter’ Consider the following questions:

1) How does Chan define stress and worry?

2) How can we be free from stress and worry?

3) How do you want to be remembered?

See you Sunday.

John
