Exchange the pressure of accomplishment for the peace of God's grace

When the world demands: achieve, succeed, earn, God says: lean on me, trust me, believe me.

That is grace. And that is what God offers: unconditional acceptance of a believing heart. Your heavenly Father loves you enough to hold you in his grace.

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado will help you

  • release a false sense of self-sufficiency.
  • rest in God's unbending and unending gift of grace.
  • remember that God is for you and will carry you through every circumstance.
  • Today, leap from the cliff of self-sufficiency and land in the strong arms of the Father who loves you . . . the Father who catches you--every time--in the grip of his grace.

    Justin McRoberts dares you to move beyond "it is what it is" thinking and become an agent of love and redemption in your household, neighborhood, and workplace.

    "It is what it is"--a common phrase you hear and maybe even say yourself. But the truth is that there is not one square inch in the whole domain of our human existence that simply is what it is. Justin McRoberts invites you to embrace a new mindset: it is what you make of it.

    With warmth, wisdom, and humor, McRoberts shares key moments from his twenty-plus years as an artist, church planter, pastor, singer-songwriter, author, neighbor, and father, passing on lessons and practices learned about making something good from what you've been given rather than simply accepting things as they are.

    Thought-provoking but actionable, It Is What You Make of It declares that love doesn't just win, mercy doesn't just triumph, and light doesn't just cast out shadow. Rather, such renewal requires the work of human hands and hearts committed to a vision of a world made right (or at least a little better). When we partner with God in these endeavors, we love the world well and honor the Creator in whose image we are made.

    We will not be remembered for who our parents were or where we were born or what our socioeconomic circumstances were. We won't be remembered for our natural talents and strengths or the opportunities we were given or the challenges we faced. In the end, each of us will be remembered for what we made with what we were given.

    Mission trips have become a staple in youth ministries across the United States. The problem is many mission trips remain disconnected from the rest of a congregation's ministry. As a result, it's often difficult to integrate students' experiences on the field with their lives back home.

    In this book, veteran youth worker and author, Jen Bradbury, will lay out a philosophy for mission trips that does just that: Connects what happens on the field with students' lives at home. To do so, she'll draw upon Scripture as well as stories from the 15 years she's spent leading mission trips herself, both domestically and internationally.

    Regardless of how few or how many mission trips a youth worker has led, Jen's words will leave them feeling inspired and equipped to create a comprehensive missions strategy that has the chance to leave a lasting impact on teens, congregations, and the world.

    A Vision of United Methodist Life Together. Our world needs love during these desperate days of radical polarization and division. Our United Methodist churches yearn to embrace love more completely because God first loved us. Our "faith" (including doctrine) is important; Christian "hope" (including renewal) is important; "love" of God and neighbor is more important. Multiplying Love underscores what matters most and stands in contrast to divisive misreadings of essential Methodist teachings. Chilcote helps us embrace anew the Wesleyan vision of love of Jesus as central to what we believe and how we live. When I finished Multiplying Love, I found myself jumping up and down shouting, "Yes, yes, yes! Gosh, do we need this!" We are at a remaking moment in the church. Dr. Chilcote beautifully articulates the deeper theological vision that beckons and sustains us. Multiplying Love helped me more thoroughly embrace the kind of loving people we are hoping to become. That's what it's all about to me, and this book nails it! --Rev. Christy Allen Holden, co-creator of The Channel UMC, a new hybrid community of faith (@christyallenholden) Every United Methodist pastor would do well to invite their church council to read Paul Chilcote's brief and powerful Multiplying Love. It recalls the power of the Wesleyan approach to the gospel and makes a compelling case for the future of The United Methodist Church. I loved this book! --Rev. Adam Hamilton, Kansas pastor and author of Wrestling with Doubt, Finding Faith
