Warrior God

I listened tonight to a sermon preached by Pastor Craig Groeschel at He speaks of a God bigger than the safe, super-sweet, excessively gentle, non-challenging one that we too often have grabbed hold of in our culture. He proclaims that the God who is love is also a warrior. This is a God worth following.

It's certainly not a new idea. Check out Psalm 29:3-5:
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

This is the God who calls us to something far beyond our silly little false conceptions.
