Tired of Trying to Measure Up: Getting Free From the Demands, Expectations, and Intimidation of Well-Meaning Christians

Jeff Vanvonderen

$21.99

Paperback
"Written to point the way to freedom for Christians who live under an unwritten religious code of expectations and rules that drain them of spiritual strength"--Provided by publisher.

- Publisher Tired Of Trying To Measure Up is written for Christians who live under a deeply ingrained code of written and unwritten expectations and rules that shame them and drain them of spiritual strength. Here are some tell-tale signs: --Always struggling spiritually, but never feeling anything but tiredness. >--Always felling guilty--nothing is ever "good enough."--Rest is impossible--even when it's needed. --Performance expectations prove you'll never "measure up." --The Christian life has ceased to be a joy. If those signs match your experience, this book is for you. The author is not trying to get you to behave in a "Christian" manner. If trying hard were the key to the victorious Christian life, you'd probably be in the hall of fame by now, don't you think? This is a message to help you unmask the lies that keep you on a works-righteousness treadmill, to help you discover the liberation of the gospel of grace in Jesus Christ and the rest that comes through what Christ has done on the cross. When there's more emphasis on doing right than knowing God and His grace, this book points the way to freedom.

Life changing - Essential reading
5 stars By E. McCarthy, Jun 15 2009
Like the Galatians, we all to often find ourselves in a struggle to please God and make oursleves more acceptable to Him. We can also find ourselves on the merry-go-round of trying to live up to others expectations. Well, this is the book that shows the way of freedom from this exhausting way of living. We already are acceptable to God through the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. We can't make ourselves more acceptable. Neither do we need to live our lives trying to please everyone and live up to their expectations.This is a liberating book that frees us from self effort and  draws us to more fully walk with Christ in the spirit. Read it. You'll love it!
