Ridiculous - Living Like Christ in a Love Starved World
In the early days of Christianity, Christ's love was ridiculed instead of received; threatened instead of embraced. Every attempt was made to dispose of the love of Jesus and his church.
By God's design, the church is the instrument of God's "ridiculous" and unconditional love. Just as the church seems to be outdated and irrelevant, it is positioned perfectly to express love that the world finds irresistible.
Ridiculous: Living Like Christ in a Love Starved World is a 6 week study on love as revealed in the Bible.
Week 1: Before We Blew It (What is God really like?)
Week 2: Behind Closed Doors (Is it possible to love my family the way God loves me?)
Week 3: Between the Pews (How do I love an imperfect church?)
Week 4: Beyond the Borders (How do we love those who hate us?)
Week 5: Below the Streets (Why does the Bible tell me not to love the world?
Week 6: Beneath the Cross (What's the big deal about the cross?)
A study guide is included in the back of the book.
Why? Because as ridiculous as this unconditional love seemed, it was exactly what the world longed for. This love that selflessly sacrificed. This love that served for nothing in return. This love that died for others. This love that had no requirements, conditions, or stipulations. This love that gave without taking. This love that came from God. This love expressed in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. This love—this ridiculous love is still what the world longs for.” (p. 8)
