Wild Goose Chase
I'm giving away a copy of Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson, author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, so leave a comment to be included in the drawing.
Ever yearn to hear more from the Holy Spirit? Ever feel like you may be "missing it," missing God's direction and God's will for your life? Well, Mark Batterson encourages you to leave your life of self-absorption and irresponsible responsibility and live a life of "chasing the Wild Goose."
On page 11, the author says "Jesus' disciples didn't just live an exciting life post-Pentecost; they turned the world upside down. And that's what you can be a part of, too. Wild Goose Chase is an invitation to be part of something that is bigger than you and more important than you."
On page 16 he says, "I'm not convinced that your date of death is the date carved on your tombstone. Most people die long before that. We start dying when we have nothing worth living for. And we don't really start living until we find something worth dying for."
If you're looking for your own "spiritual adventure," then start with this book. It's a challenge to break out of your life's routine and start living in the spirit--a life of action and adventure.
Leave a comment if you want to win my extra copy! I'll pick a winner next Tuesday.
