Judah Smith is the lead pastor of City Church in Seattle.
Judah has an ability for relating with individuals at an exceptionally human level. Something numerous ministers either overlook or intentionally don’t rehearse. His sense of humor, narrative, and refreshingly bona fide method for conveying the message of trust in Jesus is second to none.
In the first place, all through the book there is a steady division between knowing Christ and seeking after sacredness. The message appears to be “Don’t stress such a great amount over seeking after heavenliness! That isn’t too vital to God. He simply needs association with you.” For instance:
Being a Christian is not about being great. It’s about relationship. About beauty. About Jesus.
Our conduct is not [God’s] first need. We are his first need. Cherishing us is his principle concern.
God doesn’t need us to try life about our beginner endeavors at sacredness. He needs us to appreciate life.
God is not in a rush to alter us. Our conduct is not his first need. We are his first need. Adoring us, knowing us, asserting us, securing us. That is his top objective and his primary concern.
The book resolves around the inquiry; what is life about? He finishes it by saying Life is; to be adored and to love, to trust God in each minute, to find a sense of contentment with God and yourself and to appreciate God. His stories are straightforward yet significant and have given me a more prominent comprehension of various stories in the Bible and being an adherent of Christ.
This book is an unquestionable read regardless of the possibility that you aren’t a congregation goer or a Christian, it holds something for everybody.
As a summation, this book is one that would do everyone well. In fact, it is this title “Life Is___________” that is so vital to our world. We need more people who are not just living but they are fully alive!
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars
