New Morning Mercies [eBook]
A Daily Gospel Devotional
365 Gospel-Centered Devotions for the Whole Year
Mornings can be tough. Sometimes, a hearty breakfast and strong cup of coffee just aren’t enough. Offering more than a rush of caffeine, best-selling author Paul David Tripp wants to energize you with the most potent encouragement imaginable: the gospel.
Forget “behavior modification” or feel-good aphorisms. Tripp knows that what we really need is an encounter with the living God. Then we’ll be prepared to trust in God’s goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory each and every day.
Paul David Tripp is a best-selling author and the president of Paul Tripp Ministries. He also serves as the executive director of the Center for Pastoral Life and Care in Fort Worth, Texas, and has taught at respected institutions worldwide. Tripp is the author of numerous books related to the Christian life and pastoral ministry, including Whiter Than Snow, What Did You Expect?, Dangerous Calling, and Sex and Money.
“We have always resonated with Robert Robinson’s hymn ‘Come Thou Fount,’ especially the line, ‘Prone to wander—Lord, I feel it—prone to leave the God I love.’ We feel the pull daily away from God’s goodness and toward a pursuit of our own, away from God’s gracious acceptance and toward the exhausting, impossible weight of trying to tip the scales in our favor. We are grateful to God that Paul has written this devotional to help, in Robinson’s words, seal our hearts for God’s courts above. If you’re prone to wander, this book is for you.”
—Matt and Lauren Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; and his wife Lauren, writer; speaker; singer
“Each day, these devotions offer a gospel-filled story along with a challenge and application for our daily lives. These passages of Scripture paired with hope-filled messages from Paul are a great way to learn more about the message of the gospel and the man Jesus Christ.”
—Perry Noble, Senior Pastor, NewSpring Church, Anderson, South Carolina
“Each morning for years, Paul Tripp has served fresh-brewed wisdom and encouragement through his pithy, thought-provoking tweets, reminding us again and again of the all-sufficiency of Christ and his grace. New Morning Mercies offers more of the same (without the limitation of 140 characters)! These devotional readings will strengthen, nourish, and recalibrate your heart, and open your eyes to behold God’s fresh mercies at the dawn of each new day.”
—Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts
“Paul Tripp never fails to deliver mind-blowing, unqualified good news to weary and heavy-laden people like you and me. But he does it in a way that we all can understand and relate to. For each day of the year, Paul highlights the now-power of the gospel—showing how Jesus’s finished work for broken people not only sets us free from the past and sets us free for the future, but also sets us free in the present. Thank you, Paul, for reminding this tired traveler that I live my life under a banner that reads, ‘It is finished.’”
—Tullian Tchividjian, Founder, LIBERATE; author, One-Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World
“Paul Tripp beautifully blends wisdom that has been gained through years of counseling, insight into the biblical story of redemption, and his strong grasp of Christ as our substitute to produce a series of daily devotions that both warm the heart of the hurting and challenge the complacent. You will find this book to be both deeply rooted in scriptural truths and yet eminently readable. I highly recommend it!”
—Elyse M. Fitzpatrick, counselor; speaker; author, Found in Him
