The gospel-centered life is the only life of peace and victory. Believers don't need another program. We don't need another method claiming to have all the answers. We need a deeper understanding of who we are in Christ. Believers must delve deeper into the truths of the gospel rather than latch on to the newest fads and methodologies. The Christian's standing in Christ is the source for a life of purpose, peace, and victory.
In Christ: finding peace in the gospel, takes the reader on a journey into the biblical truths of the gospel in order to comprehend our position in Christ. The reader also examines what it means to walk in the gospel of grace. The gospel isn't just the baby steps of Christianity, it is not only applicable to the daily life of the believer, but also absolutely necessary to enjoy our life in Christ.
When The Sheep Bite: Loving The Church Even When It Hurts
A Tiny Yellow Line: Living in light of eternity
Jesus said, "By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." That sounds simple enough, but sometimes, actually loving individuals hurts! What do we do when church members themselves are hard to love? How do we love those who have deeply wounded us, and why is emotionally investing in others so heartbreaking?
When the Sheep Bite gives practical yet biblical counsel to those who have been "church hurt," from a gospel-centered perspective. Far from just another "How to love" book, When the Sheep Bite:
- Focuses on the gospel rather than cliches and platitudes about love
- Realistically addresses the difficulty of loving people who are hard to love
- Does not engage in "church bashing" but honors Jesus' bride
- Demonstrates how the gospel produces love rather than exhorting people to act lovingly
- Gives biblical strategies for fighting the sin that stifles love
Life hurts, and loving people is hard. Even well-meaning, godly people can be unkind, but the gospel holds a supernatural power to love, even when the sheep bite.
