40 days of Grace by Rich Miller (Kregel Blog Tours)

I read 40 Days of Grace by Rich Miller for honest review from Kregel Blog Tours. I received a paperback copy of the book. This post contains Amazon affiliate links and images.

The book is a 40 day workbook on grace. The sections are organized by weeks and then days.

  1. Week 1 Amazing Grace
  2. Week 2 Canceling the guilt trip
  3. Week 3: From Disgrace to Grace
  4. Week 4 From fear to faith
  5. Week 5 The power of humility
  6. Week 6 The grace-rest life.
God provides us grace so we don't have rely on ourselves. Ephesians 2, verses 8 to 9 says:

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast (p. 15). The book also says Grace plus Faith equals salvation from sin and the penalties of sin (p. 15)

Other things the book says about grace:

  1. God's grace must be received by faith. (p. 16 I think). 
  2. Grace is  God freely giving us what we don't deserve...
  3. God gives us freedom to fail (p. 27)
  4. God never gives up waiting for us to return back to him (p. 28)
  5. It is possible to do all the right things for the wrong reasons (p. 39). 
  6. God's grace helps us turn away from sin daily (p. 43). 
  7. Grace gives us the power to forgive (p. 44). 
  8. Love involves grace because grace is from God (p. 49). 
  9. Grace rescues us from guilt (p. 51). 

I struggle with guilt over past mistakes. Even though I have learned from some of them, I still feel regret, guilt, and shame. I also struggle with understanding grace. 

The beginning of each chapter provides a story, such as the author meeting his wife in Day 1. The end of each chapter gives a thoughts, truths, questions, and a talk with God. Each day is a short read with life-changing guidance. 

The book is Prime Eligible on Amazon.
