"Crazy Love" by Francis Chan has worked me over.
I could write for hours and describe my reactions to his many valuable concepts, insights, and scriptural nuggets, but will be very brief with this one reaction. I don't want it to become lost in verbal clutter.
If I die today, by what works (or lack of works) will I be judged?
O great and mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts ... rewarding each one according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds. (Jer. 23:18-19 ESV).
Matters of the heart are crucial. But it doesn't stop there.
It is by my WORKS that men shall know me.
God, forgive me for my dependence upon comfort.
