As we move into December there are many of us who like to think about, and consider, how we might ‘feed ourselves’ devotionally in the coming year.
Reckless Devotion is one of those books with thoughts for each day of the year that enables us to journey deeper into the heart of God.
We read this book together each morning last year and were truly blessed by the insights and encouragements from Rolland and Heidi Baker, which stem from their deep intimacy and dependency on Jesus.
Whether stopping for ‘the one’ in a dusty village in Mozambique or reaching out to the world, Heidi and Rolland model and invite everyone into the radical love that thrills God’s heart. Every day has a fresh invitation to live lives fully devoted to God. We are reminded, again and again, that when we surrender to Him and allow His presence to grow in us, we will find, like the Bakers, that we don’t become less of ourselves but that we actually become more fully the people God has always intended us to be.
If you use this book devotionally next year be ready for a year that takes you towards a more sold-out, passionate and reckless devotion of the One who loves us more than we can ever imagine.
