The End of Me

In his wonderful new book, The End of Me, Kyle Idleman shares a counter-intuitive approach to reaching a place to be effectively used by Jesus.  Using the Sermon on the Mount as his launching pad, Idleman says the blessings begin when everything turns upside down and we:

  • Are broken to be whole
  • Mourn to be happy
  • Are Humbled to be exalted
  • Are Authentic to be accepted
He also states our strength begins when we are:
  • Empty to be filled
  • Helpless to be empowered
  • Disqualified to be chosen
  • Weak to be strong
This book challenges status quo Christianity for consumers.  It is a call for self-denial -- downward mobility -- in order to rise in faith.

A very inspiring and convicting read -- and a great resource for small groups and/or possibly a sermon series.
