Many today have experienced a fresh revelation of Christ’s love for themselves. We’ve been set free from crippling sins and healed from deep emotional wounds. But is that the final destination in fulfilling our spiritual destiny? Liberating Love helps take us beyond spiritual intimacy by asking a critical questionif the Bride is to follow the Bridegroom then where is He going? The answer is simple but profoundto the same people and places He went to 2000 years ago the poor, the hurting and the disenfranchised of the City.
In Liberating Love, Steve Harrison shares the journey his family took to the urban core of Minneapolis. There, they discover the fear and hopelessness that grips those oppressed by a society that refuses to accept them. They discover the greatest mission field on earth where cultures and religious belief systems have been uncaringly thrown together.
Steve soon discovers that in the places of greatest need, God is already at work. He is tenderly touching, healing and drawing His prodigals home whether they be homeless heroin addicts or refugees from gospel-resistant countries. But His heart also longs for our involvement. He desperately needs us to follow Him on this incredible rescue mission.
Liberating Love presents the missing element of Western Christianitya ministry lifestyle that goes beyond a simple tract or prayer. It is caring enough to become a part of someone’s lifeto know their story and to know their heart. But we must be motivated by more than human suffering. Vance Havner put it this way, "The primary qualification for a missionary is not love for souls, as we so often hear, but love for Christ." God wants to expose our heart to His. If we allow Him the rest becomes natural "For Christ's love compels us" (2 Corinthians. 5:14 NIV).
