C.S. Lewis Quote That Nails Me
(sorry for the small print...click on the photo to see a larger version that you can actually read)
Possible #1 reason most Christians aren't experiencing a quality of life that's all that different from those who don't follow Christ: Because we pursue Christ with the mistaken assumption that the "abundant life" he promises is something separate from himself. We cry out for his benefits but fail to crave him. We do not recognize that he is abundant life...knowing him, intimate communion with him, doing life with him, Immanuel (God with Us)--this is life to the full...and his intention has always been nothing less than to give us himself.
Michael Warden is a closet introvert who likes to swim in the deep end of the pool. He's the leadership development coach for Gateway Church in Austin, Texas, and the author of four or five books (who keeps count anymore?), including his epic fantasy novel series, the Pearlsong Refounding.

Michael is also a regular contributor to the Christian Coaching Center, and leads a couple of uber-cool life-transformation courses called The Destiny Project and The BraveHeart Intensive. Find out more about them here.
