“If Jesus is not Lord of all, then He is not Lord at all”
In a concise and ease to understand approach, Batterson challenges the reader to perform a self-examination and discover what they are holding onto more firmly than Jesus. He points out that we are either following him completely or inviting him to follow us. By engaging numerous examples from the Bible, Batterson illustrates that God does not do great things because of us. Instead, He does great things despite us.
God did not choose Moses and David because they were great leaders. They did not have impressive resumes or a wealth of experience to draw from. What they had was a solid commitment to the God of creation. Imagine if we were all in like young David was all in when he went to face Goliath.
This is an easy and quick read, but it is well worth your time.
