Go Outside: The Adventure of Knowing and Being Known by God
“Go Outside” explores the adventure
of knowing God and being known by God!
Far from a stifling rule-driven religion, belief in Jesus ushers us
into an adventurous life of faith as we are freed from guilt and
empowered by God’s grace. We are empowered to worship God,
engage in life-giving relationships, and exercise wise stewardship
in the gifts God has given to us. God’s grace leads us outside of
the ever-shrinking confines of self-interests and into the
wide-open spaces of glorifying God and seeking the good of our
neighbor. Worship, stewardship, and relationship will be explored
both as the design by which God created us and the three areas
in which the effects of sin are most pronounced.
Instead of a call to religious duty, “Go Outside” will invite the
reader to take Jesus serious in his offer to find rest for their soul
as they gladly assume the yoke of obedience in every aspect of
their life. In this way, Go Outside is meant to be a field manual
taken into every area of your life and to help you understand that
knowing God and being known by God is the greatest gift of all!
