The God of the universe — the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and e-minor — 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. 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.
And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.
Yet millions today are content to be mere observers at church. Many more have left, brokenhearted and cynical. But God is waking up His people—people who will risk anything and sacrifice everything to be the dynamic, world-changing Church of Scripture.
When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride—even more than for our own lives? In May , he left Cornerstone to work directly in mission with the poor locally and internationally. Chan has given all author royalties for Crazy Love to the Isaiah 58 Fund. He and his wife Lisa currently live in Southern California with their four children. Check out the chapter videos for Crazy Love below. Francis gives you an overview of each chapter and asks the same tough questions as in the book.
God Is Love. Crazy, Relentless All Powerful Love. God continues to guide and teach me, and I wanted to share some of that. Aside from that additional chapter, the text remains almost identical to the edition. This means that there is a five-year gap between chapters 1—10 and chapter I decided not to change the references in those original chapters to where I was living, how many children I had, and where and how I was ministering. I wanted to change those chapters as little as possible since people have been connecting with them so well over the years.
As you read this new edition of Crazy Love , my prayer for you is the same as it was when I first wrote it.
I want you to understand that the only sane response to His love is a wholehearted devotion to Jesus. At first I thought it was just me. Then I stood before twenty thousand Christian college students and asked, How many of you have read the New Testament and wondered if we in the church are missing it?
When almost every hand went up, I felt comforted. In this book I am going to ask some hard questions. They will resonate with what a lot of us feel but are generally afraid to articulate and explore.
I grew up believing in God without having a clue what He is like. I called myself a Christian, was pretty involved in church, and tried to stay away from all of the things that good Christians avoid—drinking, drugs, sex, swearing.
Christianity was simple: Fight your desires in order to please God. My view of God was narrow and small. Now I am a husband, a father of four, and the pastor of a church in Southern California.
Until just a few years ago I was quite happy with how God was working in me and in the church. Then God began changing my heart. This took place largely during the times I spent reading His Word. The conviction I felt through the teachings of Scripture, coupled with several experiences in third-world countries, changed everything.
Some serious paradigm shattering happened in my life, and consequently in our church. This book is written for those who want more Jesus. It is for those who are bored with what American Christianity offers. I hope reading this book will convince you of something: I hope it affirms your desire for more God —even if you are surrounded by people who feel they have enough God.
I hope it inspires confidence if you have questioned and doubted the commitment of the American church. I want to affirm your questioning, even while assuring you there is hope. God put me in Simi Valley, California, to lead a church of comfortable people into lives of risk and adventure.
I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them. I believe He wants us to be known for giving—of our time, our money, and our abilities—and to start a movement of giving churches.
In so doing, we can alleviate the suffering in the world and change the reputation of His bride in America. We need to stop giving people excuses not to believe in God. We are going to look at how the Bible calls us to live our lives. It is important that we not measure our spiritual health by the people around us, who are pretty much like us. But before we look at what is wrong and address it, we need to understand something.
The crux of it all is why we are this way, and it is because we have an inaccurate view of God. We see Him as a benevolent Being who is satisfied when people manage to fit Him into their lives in some small way. We forget that God never had an identity crisis. Jesus came humbly as a servant, but He never begs us to give Him some small part of ourselves. He commands everything from His followers. The first three chapters are absolutely foundational to this book.
Though parts of it may not be new material to you, allow these sacred truths to move you to worship. I pray that your reading of the next few pages will be interrupted by spontaneous and meaningful praise to God.
Allow these words to communicate old truths to your heart in a fresh way. After the foundation has been laid in the first three chapters, the last seven chapters call us to examine ourselves.
We will address life in light of the crux of who God is. Come with me on this journey. Change, as we all know, is uncomfortable. But you will have a choice: What if I said, Stop praying? What if I told you to stop talking at God for a while, but instead to take a long, hard look at Him before you speak another word?
We are a culture that relies on technology over community, a society in which spoken and written words are cheap, easy to come by, and excessive. Our culture says anything goes; fear of God is almost unheard of. We are slow to listen, quick to speak, and quick to become angry. The wise man comes to God without saying a word and stands in awe of Him.
It may seem a hopeless endeavor, to gaze at the invisible God. But Romans 1: What I want you to do right now is to go online and look at the Awe Factor video at www. Seriously—go do it.
When I first saw those images, I had to worship. I just wanted to sit quietly and admire the Creator.
Why would God create more than ,,, galaxies and this is a conservative estimate that generations of people never saw or even knew existed? Do you think maybe it was to make us say, Wow, God is unfathomably big?
Or perhaps God wanted us to see these pictures so that our response would be, Who do I think I am? Sproul writes, Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.
Switch gears with me for a minute and think about the detailed intricacy of the other side of creation.
