This book goes through the life of David, although makes some pit stops with other characters in the Bible such as Peter and Paul.
"As followers of Christ, our primary goal is not to be understood but rather to be obedient" (63).
"The more I read the Bible, the more convinced I am that Jesus is always asking us to take the next step... We can't follow Jesus and stay the same. As we follow Him step-by-step, He makes us into who we need to be and shows us what we need to do" (127).
"Jesus didn't ask us to pick up our recliners and follow Him. He asked us to pick up our crosses. And those who won't carry their crosses will always drop out. Don't misunderstand: following Jesus isn't going to be easy. But it's always worth it" (181).
I highly recommend this book.
