Many of us stumbled into Jesus and discovered the one we d been searching for all our lives, whether we knew it or not. He told us everything was going to be alright. He was a best friend who whispered that he loved us to the exact extent his father loved him. He saw everything we did yet refused to condemn us ever. He was an incredibly powerful and supernatural God who could actually change the outcome of our horror into beauty. Then enter shame, time, failure, disappointment, and bad teaching. We learned to see him as disgusted that we haven t shaped up by now. We now have a hard time reading the words of Jesus without feeling he s telling us we re not enough and we should be better, after all he s done for us. And we pull back, not as easily daring to trust him with us, less willing to trust his plans, life and destiny for us. What if that voice didn t exist for us? What if we could read his voice, hear his voice, without an artificial, religious filter? And what if we discovered he has been caring about us, speaking to us, wooing us, entering into our daily events, from the very start, long before we took even a hint of interest in him? On My Worst Day allows us to watch one person s journey to re-discovering that voice of Jesus. We are allowed to imagine what Jesus might be saying to us in our best and worst, our horrid disasters and funniest moments. We will cry, laugh, and find ourselves in every story. And we will walk away changed; drenched with hope, and the best friend we found at the start.
The Cure: What if God isn't who you think He is and neither are you?
The Cure gives the diagnosis of this century’s religious obsession with sin-management. It has poisoned the Church, obscuring the Original Good News and sending millions away-wounded, angry and cynical, from nearly any organized expression of faith. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from a self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, which alone can heal, free and create sustainable, genuine, loving, life-giving communities.
TrueFaced draws a clear distinction between two very different underlying motives Christians sometimes operate under: our determination to please God or to trust Him. This book shows us how to trust Him more.Explore issues of identity and grace in your relationships with others and with God.
