Startlingly honest and empathetically written, HE LOVES ME! reveals the facts of God's relentless grace. Readers will learn how to live consciously, confidently in this love all the time. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion help make these truths practical and life-changing. Insecure Christians ready for a revolutionary relationship with God will find out just how accessible that is.
Compelling and intensely personal, SO YOU DON'T WANT TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE relates a man's rebirth from performance-based Christianity to a loving friendship with Christ that affects all he does, thinks, and says. As John tells Jake, "There is nothing the Father desires for you more than that you fall squarely in the lap of his love and never move from that place for the rest of your life."
Beginning with God's simple command to "Love one another," this book shows how to:
* develop deep, genuine friendships
* model to others a relationship with Jesus
* create meaningful interaction with strangers
* avoid the pitfalls of judging others
* show people love, acceptance, kindness, and respect
Complete with discussion questions, this book is appropriate for both individuals and church groups. It is a must for all Christians who wish to practice being the church rather than merely attending one.
If, like many other people, you have questioned whether there is something more to Jesus’ church than the religious institutions we’ve inherited after two thousand years, you’ll want to read Finding Church. Here is straight talk from a man who has sought authentic New Testament community for more than fifty years and who has discovered it in the most unlikely places.
Now Wayne wants to help you find this incredible bride Jesus is shaping by looking at the church as God sees her and by recognizing her as she takes shape around you. His church is a living temple, springing up in the individual heart and then knit into a worldwide community of people whose very relationships put God’s glory on display.
There’s no way human effort can build it or sustain it, which is why our attempts fall so woefully short. She is the fruit of a new creation of men and women who live beyond the human conventions of society and share a life in Jesus that satisfies their most ardent hunger.
What do we make of this phenomenon? As one who has spent twenty years helping people explore the life of Jesus beyond our conformity-based systems, here are some of my thoughts about helping people explore relationship with God and his people beyond our conformity based systems and how we might participate in this conversation in a way that champions the unity of all of God’s family.
This book is adapted from blog postings I wrote form 2015-2017 that grew out of conversations I had in my many travels with people around the world who are dealing with these same realities. One thing is clear: people are abandoning organized religion in droves. Does that threaten the future of God’s work in our world, or does it open new opportunities for the God’s live to grow beyond our expectations?
Whether or you attend a local church or whether you don’t, responding to this phenomenon will have repercussions for generations to come. We can respond as we have for centuries in a way that further fractures our Father’s family, or we can embrace our Father in all the ways he works to bring people to himself and transforms them in his love.
Él no me ama!

¿Dónde? En el evento en la historia humana que siempre aseguró su lugar en el corazón del Padre , la cruz donde Jesús permitió que el pecado y la vergüenza de ser consumidos en su propio cuerpo para que puedas abrazar libremente una relación con su padre . Allí descubrirá que lo que siempre quiso no era la sumisión temerosa de los esclavos , pero el afecto amoroso de los hijos e hijas.
Si tu vida espiritual se siente más como el rendimiento de la libertad , como un ritual vacío en lugar de un viaje alegre , vamos Wayne ayudarle a descubrir :
Un Padre que te ama más que nadie en este planeta cada vez tiene o alguna vez lo hará.
Un aumento de la confianza en su afecto por usted a través de cualquier circunstancia que enfrente.
Una relación vibrante con lo que se libera de los tormentos de la vergüenza , mientras se transforma para vivir como hijo de la tierra.
Do you find yourself picking through circumstances like children plucking daisy petals attempting to figure out whether or not God loves you? If you find yourself least certain of his love in those critical moments when you most need to trust him, there is hope for you. Where? At the one event in human history that forever secured your place in the Father's heart - the cross where Jesus allowed sin and shame to be consumed in his own body so that you could freely embrace a relationship with his Father. There you will discover that what he always wanted was not the fearful subservience of slaves, but the loving affection of sons and daughters.
