Description

Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God's will don't work. It's time to try something new: "Give up."Pastor and bestselling author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God's people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives. Or-even worse-they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting... waiting... waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.But God doesn't need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He's already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something."Now Included: An 8-session study guide! Perfect for use in leading a small group, bible study, or book club."show more

Customer reviews

This is a well written book to get the "frozen" Christian into making decisions both to get their personal lives up and running and also moving forward in their spiritual lives. All too often folks are so parranoid about making a mistake they end up not doing anything. God just wants us to do something, move in any direction and then God can use that person. Something STOPPED cannot be moved, take a step and you might find that everything will fall into place. Step out in faith.show more
