Grace Addicted Jesus Freak

Okay so I’m almost finished with this book called Goliath Must Fall by Louie Giglio. It’s taken me a little longer than usual to finish it because of mom being in the hospital and all (she’s HOME now!) but this book is great! I’d recommend it!
We all have giants in our life that must come tumbling down like Goliath did in 1 Samuel. Whether that giant is fear, rejection, addiction, anger……they MUST come down. They MUST fall!
I’m on Chapter 7 which is dealing with addiction. Normally, people think addiction is strictly being addicted to drugs or alcohol. Nope, sorry (not sorry) to burst your bubble. Addiction is ANYTHING that takes the place of God. It can be an addiction to spending money. It can be an addiction to social media. Or even an addiction to accomplishments. Whatever takes the place of God in our lives is an addiction that must fall.
Giglio does mention that there is a good addiction: being a grace addict. Being addicted to Jesus. Becoming a Jesus Freak. People tend to act that being a Jesus Freak is a bad thing. But like Giglio says, “what we need in the church today are lots and lots more of Jesus Freaks. Those who say ‘Jesus you are my only hope and I’m clinging to you my whole life long.”
Of course, when I read the term Jesus Freak I immediately started humming the song by DC Talk and quickly opened up Spotify to place it. Now I’ve got DC Talk playing in the background as I type this.
If you’ve never heard the song, I urge you to check it out. Here are a few lines from the song:
What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it’s true
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth
And there IS no disguising the truth! Why would we want to disguise Someone as wonderful as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ??? He died in our place so we wouldn’t spend an eternity in Hell. ALL we have to do is accept his gift of grace.
He’s not going to MAKE us choose. He wants to leave that up to us. But c’mon! What could be better than an eternity in HEAVEN with our Maker?? Where there will be NO MORE PAIN (PRAISE THE LORD), NO MORE SICKNESS, NO MORE EVIL!
Call me crazy, call me a freak all you want! I get to spend eternity with my Maker. What about you?
