Wow… Where is my depth of faith

I am reading the book “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan and WOW. It is hard to describe the depth and simplicity that the book brings. Having attended seminary, we can talk about theology, TULIP, polity, worship, and a whole gaggle of other things but I was floored by what I read tonight.”Lukewarm people do not live by faith; their lives are structured so they never have to. They don’t trust God if the unexpected happens- they have their savings account. They don’t need God to help them- they have their retirement plan in place. They don’t genuinely seek out what life God would have them live- they have life figured and mapped out. They don’t depend on God on a daily basis- their refrigerators are full and, for the most part are in good health. The truth is, their lives wouldn’t look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God.” (p.78)Ow. Is our lives truly transformed by God?
