The focus of this book is found in John 15:9, “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.”  The author reveals how the shame-based, try-harder Christianity prevalent today has left many Christ followers discouraged and tired of trying to do more, be more and know more. Through personal stories and Scripture, the reader learns what it means to respond to Jesus’ call to abide in God’s love. This book also gives encouragement to those believers who are burnt out and disillusioned by showing a way of healing, freedom and intimacy with Christ.  

This is a valuable resource for anyone who is feeling distant from God and who desires to embrace God’s love that leads to heartfelt worship, obedience and willing surrender to Jesus.
