Get caught!

Life is full of fumbles and stumbles. Fraught with opportunities to make mistakes, occasions to feel guilty, and the drive to “do it yourself.” The pressure to be self-sufficient is high, but it isn’t the life God offers.

The way of the world will direct you to try harder and work smarter so that you can take care of yourself and even make yourself successful. But the way of the cross will point toward the place where you stop striving . . . stop pushing . . . stop every self-initiated effort—so that you can fall into the boundless, liberating, refreshing grace of God!

Just imagine being love-driven instead of self-propelled. Imagine abandoning your life to Jesus instead of trying to save yourself. Can you imagine exchanging your fears for that peace that passes understanding? Being relaxed and free instead of stressed-out and anxious? If you can imagine enjoying God instead of trying to repay him, then you can imagine grace.

So go ahead! Jump off the cliff of self-sufficiency. Leap out of legalism. Walk off the pier of guilt and condemnation. That’s the only way you’ll land in the strong arms of the Father who loves you . . . the Father who catches you—every time—in the grip of his grace.

    " Just finished reading this for my Bible study. What a wonderful book. There were so many eye opening statements.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/5/2011

    " My favorite Lucado book. One of the reasons is the parable of the river. Very few times in this life do you read something that forces you to look at yourself and really realize what kind of person you are. Max Lucado has that ability and he uses plain language and regular situations to do it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 5/8/2011

    " This book strengthened my walk with God. I don't know any higher compliment to give Mr. Lucado as he has received reviews from wordsmiths far more advanced in the craft than myself. But, I will say, I love his writing and I never wanted to put this book down while I read it. "
