Surprised by Grace: Gods Relentless Pursuit of Rebels

Summary Surprised by Grace: Gods Relentless Pursuit of Rebels 108 's relentless purposeful and inexhaustible grace The man's name isn't new to anyone It's Jonah the famous Old Testament prophet This fresh unfolding of his story seeks to recapture the staggering effect it had on those who first encountered it so many centuries agothe same shock effect that's desperately needed tod. I love reading about rebels since I am one I think most of us can relate to the story of JonahI can recall several times where I have resisted and ran away been pursued by God which is usually not very fun if you re running away and then came back kicking my feet doing the bare minimum and still pouted about doing what was askedperhaps I even pointed a few fingers And the pursuit from God that is not very fun at some point I always become so overwhelmed with the love I feel from God that he loves me so much to interveneto stop me from taking it too far As Tullian Tchividjian Yes I had to look at the name 9 times as I typed it says on page 18 God is in the business of relentlessly pursuing rebels like us and that he comes after us not to angrily strip away our freedom but to affectionately strip away our slavery so we might become truly free I m worth God s pursuit It gets me every timeBeing a strong willed person my whole life I ve had to learn and am still learning the balance of this stubborn nature and to use it correctly It helps to have reminders about what I should and should not stand against Page 32 Tullian says To flee from God is to rise against God It is stand up straight out in your face defiance agasint the One to whom we owe all loyalty and love It means insisting that our way of doing things is better than God s wayWhen we sin that something which we choose to believe in is not no God but ourselves as godthere is nothing eternally dangerous than becoming our own godThere s also a ripple effect to be aware of Our actions our disobedience can also place others in danger as we see when Jonah jumps on the ship with the sailors and the storm comes and threatens the life of everyone on boardall because of Jonah Also we can t bless others as we might be called to Page 44 Running from God keeps you from breathing and living the life he intends you to live You therby rob other people of the blessing God intends to give them through you because you re less than you re meant to beAfter Jonah s disobedience he is given a second chance Our second third forth etc chances aren t guaranteed and I know I can take them for granted And Jonah goesit s his belated obedience but is done begrudgingly He later goes above the city to sit in comfort while waiting to see if God destroys Ninevah so he can jump for joy I m assuming Why wasn t he praying for their repentance God had plans and still used Jonah s minimalist propheteering to restore NinevahJonah felt that Ninevah deserved to be destroyed and judged their sins Page 87 By holding grudges we count other s sins against themEveryoneeverything in this world that you might give yourself towill eventually hold grudges against youyour sins will be counted against youThrough the gospel God counts your sins against Christ not against you But part of the reason or the whole reason I can t be sure that Jonah did not want to fulfill God s reuest to warn Ninevah is because he KNEW God s grace Page 112 he knew God well enough to realize the Lord s compassion toward Ninevah would trigger her repentance and allow her to escape his wrath And on 115 it goes further with Now we can better understand why we haven t heard any confession of wrongdoing from Jonah about his going AWOL from God Jonah has always felt totally justified in having run away from this assignment justified now than ever it seems See I ve been right all along So this can t be a heart of true repentance when you aren t sorry for having disobeyed in the first place when you still feel that those actions were necessary and you try to prove to God your justification Wow how prideful can we beAnd yet although Jonah s obedience was so flawed God still used him to accomplish his purpose in Ninevah That should continue to encourage us Page 123Another big piece that I took from this book was when he addressed the issue of idolatry in our lives and the pain when God begins to take them away Page 120 Worship is a posture of the heart It is an attitude of loyalty and trust toward something someone in your life that your believe makes life worth livingour non negotiable It is that thing should we lose itwould bring both devastation and hopelessness Idolatry is a Christian and non Christian issue And idols are always smaller than God Page 137 138 God is working on us teaching us to trust him specifically in those areas where it s so very very hard to discern what he s doing and why And it hurtsHe s pushing us prodding us to give up our worthless idols those things we ve become so accustomed to that we actually think we can t live without We ve depended on them so long that we re afraid to release thembut they are actually enslaving us and by holding onto them we re blocking what God wants to give us The pain we re experiencing is God prying open our hands to take back all the gifts we re holding onto tightly than to him In my book I wrote the words Oh crap next to thisI completely enjoyed this book and it was totally applicable for me today There were about 3 parts that I disagreed with but that s actually pretty minimal for me in a book I m reading I could write but I don t want my review to be longer than the actual book I think you should read it I will begin to close with a uote from page 149 If you allow God to pin you down it will be the most magnificent defeat you ve ever experienced I think my favorite part of the book comes after a CS Lewis uote on page 51 where Tchividjian simply says But God interfered But God Interfered Thank the LORD for that

Summary Surprised by Grace: Gods Relentless Pursuit of Rebels 108 God's compassion and pardon are utterly shocking in their lavish abundancethat's a lesson God himself pounded into the epic life story of one man who kept resisting in whatever way he could Surprised by Grace retells that man's true storyin a gripping presentation that will open readers' eyes wider than ever to God. The primary objective of Tullian Tchividjian is clear in his book Surprised by Grace His aim is to celebrate delight in and magnify of the gospel of Jesus ChristSome readers might be caught by surprise in this little book that chronicles the story of Jonah but places the lion s share of attention on Christ For this reason Tchividjian s work should be applauded for rightly emphasizing the gospel in Jonah the same way the gospel should be mined in every Old Testament bookThe author notes Only the gospel can truly save you The gospel doesn t make bad people good it makes dead people alive emphasis mine That s the difference between the gospel of Jesus Christ and every other world religion All the others exhort their followers to save themselves by being good by conforming their lives to whatever their worshiped deity is But the gospel is God s acceptance of us based on what Christ has done not on what we can doSurprised by Grace is a remarkable book that stands out and exalts Christ and is a vivid reminder that God is on mission purposed to send Christ to rescue sinners and shower his mercy upon everyone who believes
