The Colors of Hope Read Ì 104 Eace prosperity protection and survival Christians should be artists who paint with the colors of hope in a broken world embodying Christ's redemptive presence in our personal lives our work and our relationshipsThis inspiring and practical book offers tools for living out. Our collective fixation on justification and being made right with God has sometimes had the effect of clouding out the grand plan God has for a restored heaven and earth where nothing is left untouched by the glory beauty and healing power of ChristI don t have much patience for the church s tendency to respond to injustice or crisis with prayer Prayer is great but it s not the only thing we can be doing Richard Dahstrom does not mince words in challenging this tendency directly addressing those who prefer to avoid action because Jesus will fix everything with the Second Coming and telling them they are emasculating the gospel into irrelevanceSo yeah I like this bookIt uses the analogy of becoming an artist to convey its point but the message throughout is that even our everyday small tasks like making a meal are opportunities to make use of our talents for the betterment of God s kingdom We aren t all called to become church planters in impoverished areas but we are all called to do Real love for God will be seen not in outward shows of religiositybut in love for and service to the poor and disenfranchised of this world
