This book of 365 devotions (Reckless Devotion
) is beautifully written. The
messages both sooth your soul and fire you up.
Each week is divided into a theme, but all are meant to help
us see that God wants all of us. He wants our passion for Him and our
compassion for everyone else. And He will finish in us what He has started – to
fill us completely with the Holy Spirit for the Glory of God. Once this happens
we will look at the world through His eyes and love like He loves.
Heidi also wrote that she doesn’t see the point in
prosperity and well-being in life if all it does is distract us from Jesus
She says that the King of Glory is looking for
servant-lovers who will bring the poor, the crippled, the blind and lame to
fill up His house. We are to love God and love the person in front of us.
I could share quotes from this book all day, like: “What
matters most is love. Jesus living inside us is happy to use our hands to heal
the sick, our arms to hug the lost, our feet and our mouths to go and speak
about the Kingdom to all who need to hear it. This is faith working in love.”
But I really suggest you read the book for yourself. There
is so much in it to move and inspire and change you.
*I was given a book by the publisher for my honest review.
**Update 10/22/16 I have now read through this book 3 times and will continue to start over the next time I finish it. It is that good!!!!
