Overwhelmed by a Relentless God
Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? After all, the facts are amazingly crazy, if you think about them: The God of the universe – the Creator of nitrogen, pine needles, galaxies – He loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love.
And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not, we all know something’s wrong with that picture. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts – it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Pastor Francis Chan describes it, you will never be the same.
Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.
