God is different.
I know, I know—where do I come up with this stuff? Well, this is the kind of brilliance you can expect from Crave Something More. Wait, what do you mean this isn’t all that profound? What do you mean of course He is different?
Well, I suppose you’re right. It’s almost not worth saying. But then again, brilliant or not, I think it’s something I need to hear—and hear on a regular basis. I tend to fall into the trap of believing God is like me, and reacts like I react, and thinks like I think. And nothing could be further from the truth.
This week’s chapter is titled “Different,” and I come somewhat close to being arrested in this story. But the heart of the story is about exploring God’s supreme difference, and what it means for us to embrace a God who is more terrifying that we may expect and more beautiful than we can imagine. It’s a chapter about finding the freedom to be different from the world, all because our Father is so different.
If you’ve ever put limits on your limitless God, I think this chapter might be worth your time. You can go to the downloads page for more information, or you can download the chapter and watch the chapter video below.
