114 - Primal

Primal strikes at the heart of true Christianity. The message of this book is a much needed truth in our church culture which has begun to fill that "God-shaped hole" in our lives with stuff. Even the church has been guilty of giving too much importance to material things instead of that which really matters, our Savior. While material things are not evil in nature they do entice us to place an evil importance on them. Even Jesus said that it was nearly impossible for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. It is nearly impossible because all things are possible with God, but the problem is that we, as a culture, do not see ourselves as wealthy.

We are each wealthy. Most of us have a roof over our heads and do not have to worry about where our next meal will come. We need a reformation. We need a reformation of heart. We need a reformation like that which Mark Batterson reveals, a reformation of deeds not necessarily theology. We need to live like Christ would want us to live. We need to love others the way God loves them. Primal is that message for a church that can too easily be entangled by the less important worldly things of life. Primal is a must read for every believer.
