I love a good book that will stretch and grow my faith walk. Challenge me with good scripture and some Godly wisdom, and you’ve got me hooked.
Risky Gospel by Owen StachanRisky Gospel by Owen Stachan is one of those books. Written in a down to earth and matter of fact way, Stachan encourages his readers to really step back and look at our faith. Are there idols in our lives that we are worshipping more than God? Our we building Godly community? Do we understand what it takes to be a true, believing, faith sharing Christian these days?
I enjoyed being taken out of my comfort level and inspired to keep asking God for more of Him.
How do you access a real, thriving, vibrant faith? You trust a big God, and you start living like he’s real. It’s time to put our comfort and ease and false security on the line. If we know God is real, let’s pray as if he’s actually listening. If we know he’s good, let’s reflect that goodness in the world. When our problems feel big, let’s lean on the One who is bigger. Is that risky? “Sure,” says Owen Strachan. “Embrace it anyway. It’s literally the only way to live.”
