This is not your father’s devotional! This volume by Rich Miller and published by Monarch Books takes you on a 40 day journey of grace. Grace is a treasure of the Christian life that is so often misunderstood, neglected, and overlooked. Its potential is transforming and sure, so the need is but to see it and take hold of it. Enter this volume as a real impetus to do so.
His design is well thought out as grace is ever his theme while each week he takes an aspect like dealing with misplaced guilt, or humility, or the “grace-rest life.” The setup really works.
He makes plain that there are two approaches to relating to God– impress Him and earn His love or relate in grace. He ever shows the futility and utter failure of such an approach as earning God’s love. It is a heavy, trying, and unfulfilling too. Grace opens a new, vibrant life with all the treasures of the Christian life. We need this discussion. I fear that most Christians are wrongly focused and are unhappy as their hearts yearn for God’s grace.
Have no fear of an unbalanced, cheap grace here. He well correlates the need of the fear of God, or justice, or the reality of sin. In fact, it is that reality of sin that makes our need of grace so epic. By the end as he describes grace people, find your heart soaring in its desire to that person. May the Lord help us to be that person and I believe this book can help. I recommend it!
