This is my last post for the next couple of months. I wrote about why I won’t be blogging for the next two months last week. You can read that post here.
Since this is my last post for a while, I wanted to let you know about something important. As a matter of fact, what I want to tell you about is so glorious it will be dangerous. A revelation of Jesus Christ (who is love personified) will get you killed. It happens 100% of the time. You will be put to death in the most brutal of ways. You will be betrayed by those you love the most. You will be misunderstood. You will be rejected. You will be slandered. You will be lied about. You will become the scum of the earth. In spite of all of that, however, you will know love through it all.
This love is glorious, and is worth all the rejection.
If you’re interested in knowing more about this love, I’d like to tell you about a new book that is coming out soon that I am convinced will be a blessing to the church in profound ways. I had the privilege of hearing some of the content of this book before it was written. What I heard changed everything for me, and I am confident it will be liberating to you as well.
My friend Frank Viola has just released a new book called God’s Favorite Place on Earth that could literally change your relationship with God, help you defeat bitterness, free you from a guilty conscience, and help you overcome fear, doubt and discouragement once and for all.
This is a book that will jar you out of your “Christian rut” and give you new eyes for looking at EVERYTHING. It’s a quick, inspiring, and entertaining read.
In addition, if you get the book between May 1st to May 7th, you will also get 25 FREE GIFTS from 15 different authors including Leonard Sweet, Jeff Goins, Andrew Farley, Steve McVey, DeVern Fromke, Pete Briscoe, Frank Viola himself, and many others. Over 47 Christian leaders have recommended the book including John Ortberg, Mary DeMuth, Jack Hayford, Tricia Goyer, Jon Acuff, Greg Boyd, Mark Batterson, Jenni Catron, Pete Wilson, Anne Marie Miller, and many others.
The premise of the book is simple and 100% Biblical: when Jesus was on the earth, He was rejected everywhere He went . . . from Bethlehem, to Nazareth, to Jerusalem. The only exception was the little village of Bethany.
The curtain opens with Lazarus, who is now ready to die, telling the incomparable story of Jesus’ interactions with him, Martha, and Mary. God’s Favorite Place on Earth blends drama, devotion, biblical narrative, and first-century history to create a riveting book that you’ll find difficult to put down. Within each narrative, the common struggles Christians face are addressed and answered.
Go to GodsFavoritePlace.com on May 1st to claim your 25 FREE GIFTS, read a Sampler of the book, and watch the gripping video trailer.
I will miss you all!
