    God has much bigger things in mind for His people. In Mark Buchanan's book, "Your God is Too Safe", he urges us to live for God - to move from the safe, impersonal doldrums of Christianity in what he refers to as "the Borderlands" to a deeply intimate relationship with God where He dwells in the "Holy Wild"/5(3).   When we fear him, we come close. When we draw near to God through Christ — again and again — it means we are choosing to turn from sin. True fear of the Lord draws near in faith, fearing God because he is God, but also knowing he is gracious and merciful. He isn’t safe, but he is good.

      The first book I read that year, other than the Bible, left a lasting impression: “Your God is Too Small” by JB Phillips. Ever since then I’ve tried not to put God is a box. Now I’m reading Mark Buchanan’s “Your God is Too Safe.”. Your GOD is Too Small. This is an eye opening book that anyone who seeks to know GOD, to be obedient to HIM, and to follow HIS will should read. Phillips clearly brings your life into focus on how we shut out who GOD really is, how we place HIM in a box, and often use our own wisdom instead of having faith in GOD through HIS Word.5/5(1).

    The trouble with many of us today, writes J.B. Phillips, is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In varying degrees we suffer from a limited idea of God. Phillips exposes such inadequate conceptions of God as "Resident Policeman, " "Grand Old Man, " "Meek-and-Mild, " and "Managing Director, " and explores ways in which we can find a truly meaningful and constructive /5(4). Preach The Word. June This sermon was delivered at Portadown Baptist Church in Portadown, Northern Ireland, by Pastor David Legge. It was transcribed from the tape, titled "Your God Is Too Small" - Transcribed by Preach The Word. All material by David Legge is copyrighted.
