Goodbye Ordinary

I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us. Isaiah 63:7

Just Do Something April 10, 2009

Filed under: Books,Faith — Lori @ 7:57 am

I saw a new book advertised for sale and the title and theme reminds me of the video I posted yesterday. 

The book is by Kevin DeYoung and it is called, Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will Or: How to Make a Decision Without Dreams, Visions, Fleeces, Open Doors, Random Bible Verses, Casting Lots, Liver Shivers, Writing in the Sky, etc.

The description they give of the book from the publisher is:  Hyper-spiritual approaches to finding God’s will just don’t work. It’s time to try something new: give up.

Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through.

Too often, he writes, God’s people jump from church to church, workplace to workplace, relational circle to relational circle, worrying that they haven’t found God’s perfect will for their lives.

But God doesn’t need to tell us what to do at each fork in the road. He’s already revealed His plan for our lives: to love Him with our whole hearts, to obey His Word, and after that, to do what we like.

No need for hocus-pocus. No reason to be directionally challenged. Just do something.

You can find Just Do Something at Monergism’s online bookstore.

I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty interesting to me!
