Everyone knows what it feels like to worry. But one of the clearest and repeated things the Bible tells us about worry is: Don’t. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it. It doesn’t work. And, oh yeah, by the way, it’s sin. And it’s not just a lighthearted, white collar, domesticated sin. It’s serious business. It’s deadly. It’ll ruin your life…and your eternity if you let it.
This short book is designed to help us understand worry all the way down to its roots and all the way up to its worst fruits. We want to see worry the way God does so that we can repent and by His grace be fully and finally free. We will never move past all sin and temptation in this life. But by the blood of Christ, we can see progressive and sustainable victory over sin in our lives.
Thank God that’s not all He tells us about worry. He is such a good and gracious Father. More than that, He is our great High Priest that has come and lived among us. He has suffered with us and for us. He fought the fight against worry with us and for us. He is our model of how to fight. He is also our Savior when we fall in the fight.
Olan Stubb’s wise book is an ideal read for anyone who struggles with worry.
