$3.00 WORTH OF GOD, PLEASE


Tim Hansel in his book "When I Relax I feel Guilty," writes some insights of what most people want from God.


"I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please. Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I don't want enough of Him to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please."


If we would be totally honest, the idea of transformation really scares us. That is because we know that such a radical change would be quite uncomfortable. We realize that with transformation comes a major overhaul of our lives and priorities.


(From a sermon by Scott Chambers, The Mission if You Accept it: Transformation, 2/15/2011)
