10 Alive Recap

Friends,

Sunday we continued our discussion of ‘Crazy Love.’ We addressed chapter five ‘Serving Leftovers to a Holy God’

This chapter lead to a lot of discussion.

Chan writes ‘Jesus’ call to commitment is clear: He wants all or nothing. The thought of a person calling himself a ‘Christian’ without being a devoted follower of Jesus is absurd.’ p 85 Chan does add that in the midst of our failed attempts  at loving Jesus, His ‘grace covers us.’ p 87. However, this promise was small comfort to some in our class. Chan’s claims led some to wonder if they are doing enough for Jesus or worse questioning their salvation.

Bill reminded us that we are all on a journey toward perfection. Sanctification is a process and we need to be patient.

We all agreed that we need to be challenged to live more fully for Christ. If nothing else Chan’s words make us realize we have a long way to go. It is impossible to read this book and be satisfied with where we are.

Next week we discuss chapter six. This chapter will go a long way toward easing our guilt. Consider the following questions:

1) Chan contends that the answer to feelings of fear and guilt is love. When we love we are free. What does Chan mean?

2) Chan writes ‘When you are pursuing love, running toward Christ, you do not have opportunity to wonder, Am I doing this right? or Did I serve enough this week? p 104 What does this mean to you?

3) Chan contends that if we want to experience God in a new way all we need do is ask. p 111 Have you asked? What was the result?

See you Sunday.

John
