By Grace Alone: Finding Freedom and Purging Legalism from Your Life
When biblical grace is taught correctly, it is the most freeing, refreshing topic there is to listen to. Especially for those who have been weighed down by religious legalism and bondage.
If you think the message of grace is a "free for all" teaching that encourages sin (which is what *I* was led to believe), I urge you to read this book.
I was quick to discover that grace (in the circles I was in), has been distorted, misrepresented and slandered. This book teaches the differences between grace and law, what God requires of us, what we are to obey and more. It also exposes the root of "self-dependence" that comes when you sit under legalism and law.
When taught correctly, grace does not encourage or condone sin, but helps you resist it. Grace causes you to fall in love with your Savior that much more, once you understand it.
You are set free from working and trying to be good enough. You no longer live with a performance acceptance mentality.
I highly recommend this book, especially for those who are burned out, weary and overloaded in their walk with God.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Do You Long to Lay Hold of God's Grace and Mercy?
Do you sometimes feel trapped by a set of religious rules? Does your walk with God feel more like a checklist than a relationship? Do you feel as though you don't really measure up?
This book is for you.
Trusted Bible teacher Derek Prince shows you that being a Christian is not about being perfect. In fact, he says, we can never live up to the letter of the law. It is only when we let go of our constant striving for perfection that we encounter true perfection. How can that be? This one book will help you discover what really matters and embrace the grace of a loving, compassionate God.
It's time to stop striving, to walk away from the lies of legalism and to experience the freeing power of His all-encompassing grace.
