Sweet Relief: How the Gospel Frees Us From a Life of Striving
“I am not enough.”
Embrace the power of these four words that can free you from a lifestyle of striving.
There are many areas in life where we strive to be enough: jobs, relationships, personal disciplines ― the list goes on. In a culture that celebrates and encourages a work-to-earn mentality, it is no surprise that this same formulaic pattern has bled into our faith. It is easy to become trapped in the exhausting cycle of trying to be good enough for God. But God is not after our well-polished performance but rather our full assurance in the sufficiency of His Son!
As a long-time church gal, Kaitlin knows the struggle of feeling caught in a perpetual lifestyle of trying to please God and others through outward behavior. In Sweet Relief, Kaitlin tackles four prevalent false gospels that can keep us stuck in our cycles of striving. She reintroduces us to the simple gospel that banks on the grace of God rather than our own sufficiency. The reader will walk away confident that her standing with God is not centered on the good things she can do for Him but on the finished work of Jesus, who has already won it all on her behalf.
We aren’t perfect people. We can exhale when we don’t measure up. Because our hope is not in what we do but in the reality that He is enough.
