Are You Sick and Tired of Failing?
It's frustrating to fail against the sin of this world. It's even worse failing against temptation, fear, and faithlessness as a believer in Christ.
You're not alone.
Jason Ritchie never felt so "not right" with God as during his biggest failure. He cried out in distress, "Oh God, why can't I stop failing? I can't seem to stop. Though I pray, though I study, though I return to You, I still sin, and I don't want to."
In the aftermath, he wondered: "Will You still keep me? Will You still love me? Will You still use me?"
What does God say to these questions?
"Echoes the heart cry of every Christian who has fallen short of the Holy God we serve. Ritchie artfully applies Scripture as the lens of truth through which the reader is able to see Christ's mercy and grace through our repeated shortcomings."
- Dr. Ed Young, Senior Pastor at Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas
Discover God's fundamental response to failure.
Oh God, Why Can't I Stop? examines God's fundamental response to failure through the story of Peter's denial of Christ. It explores the Apostle Paul's lament in Romans 7:19: "For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do-this I keep on doing."
This Bible study examines the failures of some of the greatest people in God's family - and eight ways in which many of us fail today:
- Falling into Depression
- Judging Others
- Holding On to Bitterness
- Giving In to Gluttony
- Saying Things I Shouldn't
- Being Prideful
"Guides us with wisdom and grace through various failures. Jason Ritchie diagnoses our struggles, relays real-life and biblically-based advice, is transparent about his own failures, and most importantly offers rich hope to every reader in the forgiving work of Jesus our Savior."
- Chad Bird, Scholar in Residence at 1517
