Description: The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows by James Bryan Smith
"God wants me to try harder."
"God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad."
"God is angry with me."
We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true--but many are false. Those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares, the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. The path to spiritual transformation begins here. Turning to the Gospels, we will put our ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once we discover the truth in Scripture, we will go through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in our life. Each week we'll have an opportunity for soul training, engaging in spiritual practices that reinforce the Biblical messages on our minds and hearts.
