Compelled by Love

a Biblical thought...
Don't fool yourself. Don't think that you can be wise merely by being up-to-date with the times. Be God's fool—that's the path to true wisdom. What the world calls smart, God calls stupid. (1 Cor 3:`8-`9)

a Book thought...
Your praying and your preaching should be of the same length. God works as a result of prayer and faithfulness, not technique and cleverness. (p238 Wright)
a Dave thought...
Understand what it means to be compelled by love. Trusted missiologist Ed Stetzer, along with pastor and coauthor Philip Nation, in Compelled by Love will challenge you to look at love within the context of God, the church, and the lives of individual believers. Selected as the 2008–2009 emphasis book for WMU®, a million-member missions nonprofit organization, Compelled by Love will give you a basic theological understanding and a platform for personal application to understand what missional living is all about—that is, understanding your calling to love others.
Look at the love of God; begin to truly understand what is at the center of the church’s foundation, Commission, and direction; but most importantly, understand your role within the mission of God as you integrate love into all aspects of your missional calling.

Just a thought.
