LIVING A FAITH THAT BLEEDS

I'm in the process of reading REd Letters by Tom Davis. It is a powerful book that leaves me a bit overwhelmed yet energized to keep my focus on the millions of orphans worldwide, specifically in Africa. In the book, Tom discusses living a faith that bleeds...he asks "what if all Christians lived the REd letter words in the bible - Jesus' words." "Learning to live a faith that is so real, it bleeds Jesus."

If every Christian did this, what a different world we would live in. Millions of orphans would have a chance in this world, a chance to having a family and a loving home. I know i've been sitting in my chair far to long, focused on myself and the needs of my family alone. I pray the rest of my life will be focused more on how my family can help others - especially those who currently don't have a voice or hope for a future. Jesus said "when you give to the least of these, you give to me".

If you are looking for a book to spur you on in life - to live the life Christ calls us to live then please read this book.
