Priority One [eBook]
This book is a timely reminder that the gospel is not only good news for the unbeliever, but also for the believer. Here we see the priority of God’s grace – as seen, primarily, in Christ and his cross.
The main sections deal, in practical ways, with how we remember God’s grace as Christians, how we receive God’s grace and how we need to reapply that grace day by day in our lives in order to save us from legalism on one hand or lawlessness on the other. The writer urges us to abandon the pretence that we are not sinners. He shows how living by grace day by day will keep us from despairing about our sin that so easily trips us up and tortures our consciences.
This book is written primarily for those who have been Christians for some time, but who need a fuller understanding of what Christ has done for us. The writer is clear that we not only begin with the cross, but that we go on living, daily, in the power of that same cross. The book spells out the priority of grace in our Christian lives and how a firm understanding of the gospel can transform us.
This is an ideal resource for both individuals and groups.
