By Grace Alone: Finding Freedom and Purging Legalism from Your Life
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? By Grace Alone is the book for you.
"Legalism is the cause of much of the sin in the church. Many sincere and honest Christians have embraced a set of 'do not' rules such as: Do not look at another woman. Do not drink alcohol. Do not wear certain articles of clothing. Do not go to the movies. Do not associate with particular people. They think that observing these prohibitions will make them righteous. When our attention is focused on such regulations, however, we become enslaved by them. The way to be pure is not to focus on resisting lust, because the more you focus on lust, the more it dominates your thinking. There is a totally different way of becoming righteous. It is a righteousness from God, which is by faith in Jesus Christ."
Derek Prince, By Grace Alone
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 so you can embrace the grace of a loving, compassionate God.
As Prince reminds us so beautifully here, "Sin shall not have dominion over you. Why? Because you are not under the Law, but under grace." 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.
