What are you chasing?
Through deep Bible study and practical exercises with Jennie Allen, discover that God has carved out a space in each of us that only he can fill.
Are you doing everything right but still feel empty? Are you so busy doing things for God and everyone else that you altogether miss him? Do you ever, in your busy life, stop and see him, really see him?
Jennie Allen once felt paralyzed in her relationship with God. It occurred to her that maybe she was chasing the wrong things. Maybe God was after something else. When she stumbled across the phrase in 1 Samuel 13, "David was a man after God's own heart," she was intrigued. She knew David was both completely broken, and completely sold out for God.
David's life shatters our ideas of what God wants from us. In Chase, Jennie shows us a man who spent his life chasing after God, which points to several things we shouldn't be chasing:
- Don't chase self-worth by achieving more
- Don't chase freedom by protecting yourself
- Don't chase approval by being moral
- Don't chase satisfaction by rebelling
- Don't chase fulfillment. Chase God
Whether you're running from God or working your tail off to please him, David's journey will challenge your view of God. He is the only thing we can chase that won't leave us feeling more empty.
The Chase Study Guide uses projects, stories, and Bible study in the life of David to engage the mind and heart.
