Description

"About the Book We've made following Jesus a to-do list, but that's not what Jesus intended when he said follow me. In this practical and freeing book, pastor Rusty George shares the simplicity of what God desires from us. Living a faithful life should not be a chore. George teaches how to put away our checklists and walk humbly according to God's will for our lives. Book Synopsis We've made following Jesus far too complex. We don't know what to do with all the things in the Bible that seem necessary, so we make them into a to-do list: love others, forgive those who hurt you, have joy, be patient, stay faithful, give to the hurting, serve in your church, pray without ceasing, confess your sins, and on and on. These are all great things, but is a checklist really what Jesus intended when he said, ""Follow me""? More than two thousand years ago, the prophet Micah implored Israel to return to its true calling: ""Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God."" Could this plainspoken Bible verse not only sum up how we should live today but breathe a fresh purpose into our souls? In this practical and freeing book, pastor Rusty George shares the simplicity of what God desires from us. Living a faithful life should not be a chore, and George teaches how to put away our checklists and walk humbly according to God's will for our lives. From the Back Cover A Faithful Life Doesn't Have to Be Complicated We've made following Jesus far too complex. If we don't watch ourselves, the Bible can turn into a to-do list: love others, forgive those who hurt you, be patient, give to the hurting, serve in your church, pray without ceasing, confess your sins, and on and on. But is checking things off a list really what Jesus intended when he said, ""Follow me""? More than two thousand years ago, the prophet Micah called upon Israel to return to its true calling: ""Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God."" Could it be that this is the most practical way to follow Jesus? In this freeing book, pastor Rusty George shares how to let this verse simplify your understanding of what God asks of you. What does justice look like in this day and age? How are we to show mercy to others and ourselves? And perhaps most difficult in this selfie world, what does it mean to live a humble life? A life of faith should not be a chore, so put away your checklists and learn how to walk simply with God. ""In unpacking this gem of a verse--Micah 6:8--Rusty manages to be wise, insightful, and even laugh-out-loud funny. What a powerful resource for those who want to bring focus to their faith."" --CHRISTINE CAINE, Founder A21 and Propel Women Rusty George is the lead pastor of Real Life Church in Valencia, California.
