Book Description

We cover our feelings of shame, insecurity, and unworthiness by filling our lives with achievements and activities. But the more hours we spend at work—even the good work of helping others—the more we drift toward the false notion that God’s love is something we must earn, like a promotion or a paycheck.

We seek to know ourselves independently from God, and feel terribly insecure and lonely as a result. There’s a reason: We misunderstand the nature of God’s love.

Sample Chapter

Do you feel unworthy of God's love?

How do you shape your beliefs in this anxiety-filled world of competition and comparison? Many Christians conclude we must earn His Love.

We cover our feelings of shame, insecurity, and unworthiness by filling our lives with achievements and activities. But the more hours we spend at work -- even the good work of helping others -- the more we drift toward the false notion that God's love is something we must earn, like a promotion or a paycheck.

We seek to know ourselves independently from God, and feel terribly insecure and lonely as a result. There's a reason: We misunderstand the nature of God's love.

In Too Good to be True, Pastor Ricky Jones takes you on his journey to accept God's unconditional love. Using personal stories and biblical references that paint the true picture of grace, Jones shows that being loved by God is not a task to be achieved, but rather the starting point of your own healing and new refreshing, joy-filled life.
