I love Scot McKnight. Don't get me wrong, I'm happily married but I love who he is and what he's written. I've faithfully followed Jesus Creed his blog for a while, but I had no idea. No idea about the book "The Jesus Creed." I can honestly say that it's transformed my relationship with God.
I've desired to know God at a deeper level. I've wanted to hear God better. I've hoped for greater intimacy. I've pleaded with God to draw me closer. He's answered and used "The Jesus Creed."
OMG. Who knew? I've used the 30 short chapters as my daily devotional reading. I can say, I've gone deeper...I get it a bit better.
LIVING THE JESUS CREED WAY
I'm now living the Jesus Creed: Love God, love others, follow Jesus. I recite it several times a day. God prompts me. It's real. How do I know? I've been changing on the inside: stopping before I've acted or reacted. I've chosen to forgive, to show grace, to bless and even not to be jealous. I've even chosen humility intentionally.
The Jesus Creed--it's wild. It's great. If you want to read a book that will take you closer to the heart of God and to the person of Jesus, read The Jesus Creed.
