Evidence for joy: Unlocking the secrets of being loved, accepted, and secure by Josh McDowell
So many people live their lives hoping to or trying to be good enough for God or someone else in their life. Great news. This book reveals what the Scripture teaches us about the true nature of our relationship with God that frees up to serve and love Him and others because of a right relationship rather than to attain one. Once we have trusted Christ as Savior and He has forgiven our sins, we are free to live in our state of acceptance rather than trying to achieve. Acceptance by God comes as we received the payment that Christ made for our sins. Now that we know how God feels about us and where we stand with Him we can do and give freely and apart from fear or concern regarding our life status.
