Paul preached what he called the gospel of freedom and liberty. The Bible refers to the Christian life as “light,” “easy,” “restful,” and “peaceful.” Jesus, Himself, said it was “not burdensome.” How would you compare your spiritual life to the above scriptural warranty? Is it dominated more by “worry and stress” or “peace and rest”? If your life is more weight than miracle, this book is for you.
It is a book for those who desire a deeper understanding of God’s grace and mercy in their life. Daryl Kraft has shared the life-altering freedom contained in such familiar words as: “salvation,” “faith,” “sanctification,” “love,” “righteousness,” “wisdom,” and “grace,” not as words meant to burden us, but as words of liberation intended by God to set us free.
It is a book for those who are exhausted by years of Christian service, yet persevere because that is all they know and believe it is what God expects of them. It is for those who never feel that they have done “enough” for God.
It is for people who view God with one arm around them in love, and the other holding a “big stick” poised for punishment. It is for people who have felt the sharp agony of questioning their own salvation. It is for those who compare themselves to other Christians and don’t like what they see.
It is for those who hunger for a scriptural path that liberates them from all of this bondage, which transfers them from the path of “trying to serve God,” to the path of “desiring to know God;” a path that progressively leads into deeper peace and rest. If you yearn to know only God, and Him alone, this book is for you.
“Why can’t I seem to make the Christian life ‘stick’?”
For decades, author Daryl Kraft asked these questions in his struggle to reconcile faith in a biblical God of love, with the fear that persistently plagued him regarding a God of judgment and wrath. It seemed to Daryl that “more God means less fun,” and “when you pray, you pay.”
In Knowing the God who chose you, however, Daryl illustrates how God uses Scripture to completely transform our misunderstandings of God. He shares ten verses that give testimony of the glorious relationship we can all enjoy in Christ.
This powerful book exposes common misconceptions about the Christian life, zeroing in on the true freedom of the Gospel message: that a totally good, totally loving God has chosen us, simply that we may know the pure joy of knowing Him.
Have you spent your days “climbing the corporate ladder,” “grabbing the bull by the horns,” “clutching at the brass ring,” only to feel more frustrated at the end of each day and thinking, “Is that all there is?”
Though Daryl was a successful and respected businessman and active in his church, his road to wealth and security was fueled by tranquilizers and littered with frustration, stress, and disappointment.
His journey brought him to the foot of the bed of a young man who was dying of cancer, yet filled with peace and joy. Daryl crashed headlong into this truth: “If he has a quiet spirit in circumstances far worse than mine, apparently it is a peace that cannot be achieved or accomplished by anything I have been doing.”
In this “must read” for every businessman, Daryl Kraft maps out the road to “Real Success” that brought him the peace and freedom he had searched for his entire life.
Now expanded and revised with revealing study questions and meditations at the end of each chapter.
