Gospel by J.D. Greear

Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God's gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God. The book’s core is a “gospel prayer” by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world. Title: Gospel Author: J.D. Greear Read Sample Amazon

God Knows

As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. (Psalms 103:13-14) I am a limited person. My thinking, my resources, everything that I have is limited. Unlike God, I run out of energy, resources & compassion. I need a source that is unlimited, overflowing & abundant so that I can carry on what is required of me as a son to do what needs to be done for my Father to be pleased in me. What pleases God most is when I acknowledge my insufficiency and cling to him as my ultimate source of strength. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5) He is not pleased if I do all sorts of things with my own limited strength. What pleases him most is when I acknowledge my insufficiency and cling to him as my ultimate source of strength. whoever speaks, as one who speaks
