Have you ever wondered if there is more to the Christian life than what you have experienced so far? Have you ever felt tired of trying to live up to God's expectations and your own standards? Have you ever longed for a deeper and more intimate relationship with God?




The Rest Of The Gospel Ebook



If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be interested in reading a book called The Rest of the Gospel by Dan Stone and David Gregory. This book is not just another self-help guide or motivational speech. It is a powerful and profound exploration of the truth that most Christians overlook: Christ in you as the rest of the gospel.


What is the book about?




The book is based on Dan Stone's personal journey of discovering the rest of the gospel after years of spiritual frustration and dissatisfaction. He realized that he had been living only a part of the gospel message, which focused on what he had to do for God rather than what God had already done for him. He learned that the key to abundant life was not in his own efforts, but in Christ's life in him.


The book is divided into three parts. The first part explains the difference between the partial gospel and the rest of the gospel. The second part explores the implications of Christ in you as the source of life. The third part describes how to rest in God's grace and love as a way of living.

What is the main message of the book?




The partial gospel vs. the rest of the gospel




The authors argue that most Christians have only heard and believed a partial gospel, which focuses on what they have to do to be saved and to please God. This gospel emphasizes human performance, obedience, and effort. It leads to a life of struggle, guilt, fear, and frustration.


The rest of the gospel, on the other hand, focuses on what God has already done for us in Christ. This gospel emphasizes God's grace, love, and acceptance. It leads to a life of rest, joy, peace, and freedom.


Christ in you as the source of life




The authors explain that the rest of the gospel is based on the truth that Christ lives in us as our new identity and our new source of life. We are no longer defined by our old self, our sin, our failures, or our achievements. We are defined by Christ, who is our righteousness, our holiness, our wisdom, and our power.


Christ in us is also the source of our life. We do not have to rely on our own resources, abilities, or willpower to live the Christian life. We can depend on Christ's life in us to produce the fruit of the Spirit, the character of Christ, and the works of God.


Resting in God's grace and love




The authors describe how to rest in God's grace and love as a way of living. They show how to stop trying to earn God's favor and approval, and to start trusting in His unconditional love and acceptance. They show how to stop striving to achieve spiritual goals and to start abiding in Christ's presence and power. They show how to stop worrying about the future and to start enjoying God's peace and provision.


What are some of the benefits of reading the book?




A deeper experience with God




One of the benefits of reading the book is that it can help you experience God in a deeper and more personal way. You can learn to know God as your Father, who loves you unconditionally and delights in you. You can learn to know Christ as your life, who lives in you and through you. You can learn to know the Holy Spirit as your guide, who teaches you and empowers you.


A freedom from self-effort and frustration




Another benefit of reading the book is that it can help you experience freedom from self-effort and frustration. You can learn to let go of your own agenda, expectations, and standards, and to embrace God's plan, purpose, and will for your life. You can learn to stop trying to fix yourself, change yourself, or improve yourself, and to allow God to transform you from the inside out.


A joy and peace that surpasses understanding




A third benefit of reading the book is that it can help you experience joy and peace that surpasses understanding. You can learn to rejoice in God's grace and goodness, regardless of your circumstances. You can learn to rest in God's sovereignty and faithfulness, regardless of your challenges. You can learn to live in God's presence and power, regardless of your feelings.
