My ladies group is on Chapter 3 of a book called “Crazy Love” by Frances Chan, http://crazylovebook.com/. Wow, it is a great book about God’s love for us and how HE is yearning for a relationship with us. The holidays are a great time to reflect on our relationships with family and friends but what if we added God to that list and thought about our relationship with HIM this holiday.
Do you talk to God? Do you listen to God? Or maybe you don’t have a relationship with God. There is no time better than now to begin exploring what a relationship with God would look like in your life.
Here are some question Frances Chan has posed in the first 3 chapters of his book:
1. What do you think would come out of your mouth the moment you first saw God? What would be the first words you would say?
2. What things in your life keep you distracted from God? Include both good and bad things
3. What would it take to adjust your lifestyle and mentality in order to put the most important things back in their proper place?
4. How would you explain the difference between knowing God’s love intellectually and knowing it intimately? Which is your default when thinking about God’s love? Why do you think this is the case?
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you – 1 Peter 5:6-7
