A response

Chapter 2, Part 3

This section begins with a very loaded question, "How do we respond to Christ?"

Typically, a prayer, a moment of agreement, perhaps baptism. All ways of saying that we accept Him. But isn't that backwards? Isn't it all about Him accepting us?  Have people been led down a "religious road that makes grandiose promises at minimal cost?"

We are saved to know God. And to know His is to love Him. A full, no holes barred, abandon all else love that experiences the Sovereign God of the Universe. Somehow, just praying a prayer or taking a bath just doesn't seem enough.

Good stuff. Maybe it is about a life continually filled with God.
