Crazy Love

So I just started reading "Crazy Love" today by Francis Chan. Our Sunday School class is going through it together. I knew it would be an amazing book just based on the following quote by Chris Tomlin from the Foreward.

Isn't it interesting that in Acts 11, at the end of verse 26, it says, "The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch." What I find interesting is the simple thought that the Christians didn't name themselves. But rather, they were called (or named) "Christians" by those watching their lives. I wonder if it would be the same today. Could someone look at your life or look at my life and name me a Christian? A humbling question for sure.

So I looked up the definition of Christian.....just to see if my life reflects the meaning of it.....

Christian: one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Disciple

Thank you, Lord, for your grace!
