Synopsis: The gospel of Jesus Christ is the door to eternal life, but what difference does it make once we're inside God's kingdom? Jerry Bridges says the gospel is the very essence of our walk with God day by day. It is the key to our salvation, for sure, but it is also the power for our daily progress in holiness.Description: WHY CHRISTIANS LIVE LIVES OF QUIET DESPERATIONThe gospel of Jesus Christ is the most explosive news of freedom the world has ever heard. Yet all too many of His followers today experience very little of the gospel's liberating power.Why? Regrets over our past haunt us, fear and anxiety clutch at us, subtle legalism oppresses us, outright sin entangles us, and we spend much of the day without even thinking of God.Yet the gospel offers us "unsearchable riches," and that's the title of the book's first chapter.

The key is not to try a little harder, but to know more fully the incredible work of Christ on the cross-and to live in a more vital awareness of that grace day by day.Bridges does not flinch at the hard facts of human sin and God's wrath. Concepts that are not exactly popular today, but understanding them is absolutely crucial. For without a knowledge of the depth of our sin, we cannot experience "the unsearchable riches of Christ" that are available to us in the gospel. Yet when we know those riches, we are empowered to live every day "glorying in a sense of acceptance and the experience of grace."The gospel is not just for the afterlife, but for today-it is the gospel for real life.- Publisher.
