Just started reading Francis Chan’s Crazy Love.
Over a million copies sold already. I picked up a copy at the Desiring God Pastor’s Conference in Minneapolis last week. Figured I needed to see what all the ruckus was about.
He begins in a rather unorthodox way with chapter one entitled Stop Praying. He wants us to step back and take a look at the awesomeness of God. He directs the reader to a website to view this:
Have to admit. That perspective will definitely fuel your awe tank. Amazing.
Later in the chapter, Chan quotes A. W. Tozer:
What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. . . . Worship is pure or base as the worshiper entertains high or low thoughts of God. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his deep heart conceives God to be like.
Will you pray with me that God gives us a fresh and accurate view of Himself tomorrow as we gather to worship His awesome name?
