When Strivings Cease: Replacing the Gospel of Self-Improvement with the Gospel of Life-Transforming Grace

This is not a call to get busy; it’s a call to get discerning.  Have you ever felt like you’re not enough? With so many opportunities and resources available to us, why does it feel like we’re lacking? Perhaps it’s because we are. Without Christ, we’re not enough, and if we measure ourselves by popular opinion, earthly standards, religious ideals, or dream-making aspirations, we’ll come up short every time. Today’s self-improvement narrative has left so many women exhausted, worn out, and wondering why life feels like an anxiety-ridden, never-ending battle for satisfaction. In this six-session video Bible study, Ruth Chou Simons reminds us that the answer we’re looking for isn’t the latest and greatest strategy for self-improvement; it’s the transforming gift of amazing grace. You’ll walk away understanding more fully that the generous, unmerited favor of God is the means to the welcome, love, and approval you so deeply long for.
