Walking With a Limp
When asked about your relationship with God, you say, “Fine. Good.” But you have no idea. You can count up how many times you’ve said, “Oh crap,” or thought, God, I hope I don’t do something stupid today. You try to be good. And fail. You try harder to be good. And fail. Eventually, you don’t try so hard, don’t live so well, and just show up on Sunday out of obligation, bored to death, and fake it.
Brad uses the simple, not so sexy, but very intentional life of Jesus Christ to illustrate what authentic spiritual growth really looks like, and how you can become more and more like Him over time, no matter who you are or where you have been.
Wrestling With God Is No Ordinary Bar Fight.
The mess of life gets deeper and dirtier, and stuck is where you are – trying to become more like Christ – but never getting there. You’re not growing or maturing in your faith, and you’re pretty sure it’s your own fault. The answer is not to read more, and pray more, and serve more, and wait to grow more spiritually. So what is the answer? Where do you start?
There are at least eight things that Jesus was about, who He was and how He lived, and they make up the guts, the insides, of The Anatomy of a Disciple. As you become aware of what God is purposely doing in your life right now in these eight areas, He will break you. He will help you to hear His voice. He will help you to rise up from the ashes of a bad decision or a bad relationship. He can change what you believe, how you feel, and what you do about it – if you let Him.
Once far from the Lord and focused on things that stimulated all sorts of nonsense, Brad was willfully broken and broken and broken. After years of a repetitive pattern of spiritual failure, the self-proclaimed hairy-back-knuckle-dragger, finds it’s better to live life walking with a limp with God than to do life whole and on your own.
There was a way out for him, and there is a way out for you.
“Walking With A Limp” is going to change the way you pursue Christ and the way you live day to day. Brad is purposely transparent, using language that will reach you right where you’re at. Page after page, he pushes for self-awareness in such a way that doesn’t accuse you or make you feel like a loser.
