Some time ago, I read, Dangerous Wonder by Michael Yaconelli and his words are still relevant today.

… The critical issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore, He changes them into “nice people”… What happened to the kind of Christians who were filled with passion and gratitude, and who every day were unable to get over the grace of God.

This is the issue that John writes about in his letter to the church at Ephesus, “Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first” (Revelation 2:4 NIV). God is looking for passionate Christians, who are unable to get over the grace and love Jesus showed in his willingness to sacrifice himself on the Cross.

I want to be the sort of Christian who has been unable to get over the grace of God.
