No Easy Jesus: How the Toughest Choices Lead to the Greatest Life
No Easy Jesus is an honest look at the Jesus we have made Him out to be. Many of us got to know Jesus and were excited about our relationship with Him years ago. Things were great but then life happened and things did not go the way we expected so we began to feel a deep disappointment.
Eventually we reach a place where we began to feel that there must be more than this to the Christian life.
Jason lays it out in what a life of a true follower of Christ looks like. The true Jesus follower doesn’t do the easy stuff but rather the tough stuff that makes the best life possible. Jesus held out the promise of a rich and satisfying life.
Discouragement, frustration and boredom are common among those who are serving the easy Jesus. You do not have to be spiritually elite to experience a different life.
No Easy Jesus challenges you to take your faith to the next level.
Chapter 10 was my favorite. Jason talks about how difficult it is to love others. He sheds light on how our love often turns into demands. He reminds us that love does not demand things of others. When love has demands then resentment often follows. Love can only exist in freedom. Challenging words and something I’m still processing to be honest.
I recommend this somewhat quick read. It will challenge you and help you better understand why you might be experiencing boredom or disappointment in your relationship with Jesus.
