As common as it is terrible. As easy to overlook as it is dangerous.
Backsliding is the worst thing that can happen to anyone claiming faith in Jesus.
Learn the diagnosis. Experience the cure
The Christian life is a race. Through the gospel,God summons us to sustained and persevering effort. He empowers his children by grace—free and undeserved blessing through Christ. But he does not carry them to heaven on flowery beds of ease. Faith is a living, athletic grace. God’s mercy motivates Christians and energizes them to press on and overcome great obstacles. Christ blazed the trail before us. He now calls us to follow Him to the end (Hebrews 12:1–2).
Looking unto Jesus—that is how we persevere. In him is everything we need. But realistically speaking, Christians are not always pressing forward. Sometimes they wander off the narrow path, slip, and injure themselves. To the confused and injured runner, this book says, “God can help you. You can finish this race—and finish it well.” Drawing from the wisdom of the Scriptures and aided by the insights of godly Bible teachers through the centuries, Getting Back in the Race addresses the age-old problem of backsliding.
