He states, "I had it all backwards. The main thing was not my love for God, but his love for me. And from that love I respond to God as one deeply flawed, yet loved. I’m not looking to prove my worth. I’m not searching for acceptance. I’m living out of the worth God already declares I have. I’m embracing his view of me and in the process discovering the person he created me to be."
In Eyes Wide Open, Wilhite guides the reader to discover real spirituality from the fake entrapments of our modern world. Interestingly, and what gives him more authority is the fact that Wilhite pastor's Central Christian Church in LAS VEGAS. Talk about a ministry where people are different, yet in need of what we all need . . . a real relationship with Christ.
Wilhite's book is an easy to read book, which would be great for a small group study, as he attempts to tell stories about the many ways we mess up in life, about our pasts and longing for God's grace. THe bottom line hope for Wilhite is that we will see ourselves and God with new eyes – eyes which are wide open to the God of love.
