The duty of every believer is to pursue God with all of their might. Not as a means to reach a level of spiritual seniority, but as a way to get to know God in a personal, real way. Each of us brings a lot of baggage along; this includes our carnal default settings that stunt spiritual growth. The cure to overcoming these defaults is to pursue a love relationship with God. This pursuit is not something you try, it's a heart commitment. The outcome is true spiritual fruit...love, joy, peace, patience, and self-control. Defying your Defaults is an account of Tom's spiritual transformation when head knowledge met the love of Jesus, a time when ego was exchanged for a passionate pursuit of God. It contains many of the hard, and often humorous, lessons he learned during this time of recalibration.
