PRIMAL by Mark Batterson

We can at times make our faith, our walk too complicated. We forget how it felt when we first came to know Jesus as our Savior. Remember that first time you met Jesus? Is our focus still on growing with Him,living out that great commandment or have we lost that in the fast pass of our lives? In Primal, Mark Batterson shows us our way back to the beginning, to our first love. We learn about compassion, wonder, curiosity, and power. We uncover just what can happen in our walk if we allow Christ to move in us through these four ways. We often get off track, we lose our way, and forget just how Christ is the most important and uncomplicated factor in our lives. We can rediscover what happened when we first met Jesus when we let go of all around us, and simply made Him our focus. Pure faith is not complicated, and Mark shows us this in Primal. I love the line he shares and says," The truth is that most of us are already educated way beyond the level of our obedience." He goes on to say, "We learn more and do less all the while thinking we are growing spritually." This speaks so true in my walk, how about yours? This is one of those books that brings light to where we are on our walk. I enjoyed reading this book as it was a gift from Multnomah WaterBrook Press for its review. http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/catalog.php?isbn=9781601421319
