A few weeks ago it was one of those Sunday nights where there wasn’t much going on. The week ahead was beginning to take it’s familiar place climbing on my shoulders and I just felt “blah” (official medical term). As I stared at the TV, remote in hand, I decided to try to find something of value on the “idiot box”. No such luck. My next stop was Apple TV where I scrolled through several podcasts I have bookmarked. I settled on the latest sermon from my “church in the south”, Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee. To my surprise, Pete Wilson was on vacation so there was a guest speaker named Ken Davis. Over the next hour, I would be rocked right where I sat. I would be moved to tears of laughter and maybe a tear or two of that other emotion. His sermon was called “Fully Alive” and when it was over, I knew some changes needed to be made.
I was thrilled to see that “Fully Alive” was not just a sermon, it was also a book which released today. I had an opportunity to review “Fully Alive” and it is everything that Ken Davis preached that day and a whole lot more. This isn’t a diet book. It’s not some crazy athletic book for athletic people. It’s a book for the “rest of us”. It’s a book that will light a fire within you that may never go out, until the day you exit this life….having lived it to the fullest!
The truth is, we all get stuck. Most of us get busy, get old, get….well, just get. Then one day we turn around, look and the mirror and realize we’re on coast. We don’t recognize the face in the mirror and we certainly don’t recognize the numbers on the scale. They seem quite a bit higher than the last time we can remember stepping on it. The same is true for Ken Davis. I near tragedy rocked his world. A stake was driven in the ground that day (one of many). He knew he needed to make changes. He needed to live.
And live he has.
He’s not done yet. Not only does he want to live fully alive, he wants to help you do the same. I challenge anyone reading this to grab a copy of Fully Alive. Be prepared to be moved. Be prepared to be ready for some changes. Be prepared to awaken a spirit within that will change you physically, emotionally and spiritually. We owe it to ourselves. We owe it to our Savior. Well done Ken. Thanks for waking me up.
I give “Fully Alive” a 4 out of 5
