Review of Called to Community
This book challenged me. It raised issues about the way our families and communities are set up that I had never before questioned. It covered personal heart-issues of servant-hood, submission, and living out the love we have been shown. It highlighted relationships - the bitter and the sweet, the roles of forgiveness, discipline, and mercy. These authors wrote about humility, hospitality, and dwelling with people who need the gospel-good-news just as Jesus came and dwelt with us. I think the underlying question this book asked of me, personally, is this: am I fully giving of myself to the kingdom of God or am I holding pieces back, keeping what I can to make sure that I remain comfortable and uninterrupted? It's a question I'm working out with the help of the Holy Spirit &I am inspired by this book to keep learning from the love and life of Christ...until I can say, like Him, that I have given all that I can to love others for the glory of our Father.
