“Forgotten God”

August.7.2009

Forgotten GodLately one of the books I have been reading is Forgotten God by Francis Chan – I talked about it in one of my other posts after I’d gotten through the first two chapters, but this is more of a reflection of the book as a whole.  The book is about the Holy Spirit, and is titled so because many people ignore / forget about Him in everyday lives.  I mean, Jesus did say that our Father would send a Helper (in His name) and that because He went to the Father we would even do greater works than those.  That’s some heavy stuff.  Do we fully live into this understanding everyday – for the expansion of the kingdom?

I really enjoy how he explains things – he’s great at making the reader really stop and dwell on various aspects of their own life and many of the promises of God to us, His children.  He’s great at building a foundation for each new topic he starts on so that no matter where the reader is coming from, they are able to follow what he is saying.  The sincerity of his voice also comes through strongly, which I don’t see as overwhelmingly in many books today.  It comes out September 1st.  If you are looking for a good read, I’d recommend picking it up.

And now I’ll end this post with the same quote he ends his book with – I think it’s one of the most rich and insight-giving verses.

  • “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”  Romans 14:17
