And the winner is . . .

August 18, 2008

We have a winner. Congrats to Ruby Blotzer from Broken Arrow, OK, winner of the drawing for the free book, Wild Goose Chase. She and her husband serve at a local church in Broken Arrow. Pretty cool to think that there are people in Broken Arrow who read my blog. Also sweet to give the book away to someone from my home state. I want to thank everyone for participating. I do want to encourage everyone to check out this latest book, it will rock your world!

Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book to this point:

When Christianity turns into a noun, it becomes a turnoff. Christianity was always intended to be a verb. And, more specifically an action verb. The title of the book of Acts says it all, doesn’t it? It’s not the book of Ideas or Theories or Words. It’s the book of Acts. If the 21st Century church said less and did more, maybe we would have the same kind of impact the first century church did. 

Some of us live as if we expect to hear God say, “Well thought, good and faithful servant!” or Well said good and faithful servant!” God isn’t going to say either of those things. There is only one commendation, and it is the by-product of pursuing God-ordained passions: “Well done good and faithful servant.”
