Demonstrate the Heart and Passion of God to the World around You
One reality is evident in today’s world: Our culture is broken and in desperate need of hope. How do believers answer the world’s cries for help in a way that reflects God’s heart of compassion?
According to pastor and bestselling author Bill Johnson, we simply embrace two realities: God’s wisdom and His power. By coupling keen biblical insight with extensive experience of seeing God’s hand at work, Johnson offers keys to unlocking the greatest impact on your life, your family, your community, your world.
When you grasp the long-term strategy of God’s wisdom and the immediacy of His miracle-working power, you can live with significance in the here and now, with eternal impact.
I always get excited when I see a new Bill Johnson book because when I hear him speak I always sense his humbleness and wisdom and I want to hear what he has to say. But, in the past, when I have read his books I have trouble focusing.
So I approached this one differently. I started reading this book a few weeks before the review, instead of the week before and I took the time to underline things that struck me. I normally try to avoid that because I like to pass my books on to others but I wanted to really absorb this book. And I am glad I did.
Although I might not agree with everything Bill Johnson says, there are many nuggets of gold within these pages and I have something underlined from, almost, every chapter.
I love his heart for the city, meaning he believes the Church should be having a profound impact on the cities in which we live. I pray for the school I teach in and my students but I don’t usually think in the bigger picture.
Overall, a good read with a lot to reflect on.
