From THE HEAVENLY MAN, by Brother Yun

"--I have learned that when the Lord tells us to do something there is no time for discussion or rationale, regardless of the situation you face. When we are sure God has told us to act, blind obedience is called for. Not to obey God implies that we are wiser than him, and that we know better how to run our lives than he does." I was instantly reminded of the passage of scripture asking if the clay should say to the maker "What are you doing?" I have not read this book yet, only the first chapter, and a few shared quotes, but it is next on my TO READ list!! I I am finishing CRAZY LOVE : Overwhlemed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan and it is also very good.....I'd recommend it to anyone seeking to understand their relationship with God, or why your relationship with God isn't what you'd like it to be, to anyone who,reading your Bible would like a great companion book for a study on God's immeasurable love for YOU .............. go visit and you'll get a taste of what I am telling you about. There are a lot of really good books being recommended to me right now. Its hard to pick and choose, or to keep up, but I have gained a lot of insight, learned more about my Heavenly Father, and God has used HIS WORD first and foremost, but the writings of others to reveal more and more of Himself to me.

I bought Crazy Love last night, after hearing about it on several blogs. Today, we had a 1.5 hour drive to and from a track meet, and I read the whole book, out loud, to my dear hubby and one of my elder daughters. Wow!

On the way home from the 9 hour track meet, my husband pulled into Wal-Mart and asked me to run in and by 5 more copies of the book so that he can give them a way. Yes ... it is a POWERFUL book!

I finished reading Crazy Love and now am reading to my husband. It is the most amazing book I have ever read. It has radically changed my life.

One point in the book where he talks about lukewarm christians and the fact that lukewarm christians will not be in heaven because there is no such either ARE a christian or you are NOT...there is nothing in's hot or cold. That just blew me away...the part that says in Revelation that God will spit you out of his mouth if you are lukewarm. I cannot say what that has done for me along with every other paragraph in the changing that's for sure.
