We are the only Jesus some people will ever see. Wouldn’t it be a shame if people didn’t see Jesus in us when they looked at our lives? Sadder still, if they don’t leave our presence craving Jesus because of how we live our lives.
Artie Davis, director of TheSticks Network, a church –planting movement, and the founding pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Orangeburg, SC, asks us to take an honest look at ourselves. As a group of people who are called by God to be the most loving, compassionate, and joy-filled people in the world, why are Christians often viewed as being the exact opposite? In “Craveable”, Davis challenges us to return to the passion that the first church had that won the world in the first century.
“Craveable” is a forty-day journey of finding the irresistible Jesus inside ourselves and marketing it to the world. It is an action book. If you only read it not much is going to change. The best use of Davis’ book is in a small group setting where members are committed to reading and discussing in depth the ideas in the book as well as holding each other accountable for applying its wisdom to their lives.
This book is more than an individual self-help book. It is more of a group mission study. Churches are not well-liked—they are viewed as judgmental and intolerant. Christ’s mission was to love others—not condemn them. Jesus is craveable. It is time His followers learned how to present his irresistibility to the world around them.
