I am continuing to think through my next book with your help and collaboration. Your input has been awesome! For the background on this, you can go to my last post.
Now, I want to ask you for stories. Your own stories (or maybe even others). Real-life illustrations from real people walking out the truths of this book are needed!
Here are my key points for Chapter 1. Can you share your experiences as they relate to these key points?
Chapter 1 Title: Jesus' Call to Uncompromised Followership
Point 1: God is always calling us to fresh encounters with Jesus
Point 2: Religion provides us a safe place to become ‘comfortable’ that can keep us from living out of fresh encounters.
Point 3: Breaking out of our comfort zones can mean facing the religious/cultural hindrances that we have become accustomed to. This can be difficult!
Point 4: Desire is key. How much do we really want to engage fully with the amazing Person, Jesus—no matter the cost.
Friends, I don’t know how this collaboration will work, but if you are open to sharing some of your own stories here as comments, what a gift to me and to others!
