Book Review: New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional


New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional Paul Tripp. Crossway. Pgs. 384. Kindle Hardcover

Do you need daily nuggets of grace and truth you can meditate on? Do you need bite size portions at the buffet table of God’s word? Let’s face it, we all need to digest the truth of God’s word daily to grow in grace. As the old saying goes, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. Do you have a plan to soak in truth in 2016? There is a myriad of resources available to us and I want to bring to your attention to an excellent tool of grace and truth at your disposal, Paul Tripp’s book New Mercies Every Morning.

New Mercies Every Morning is a daily devotional, nuggets of truth, grace, hope, mercy, love and I could go on and on. There are 365 days of devotionals mapped out for us, so easy we just pick up the book or your kindle and let your mind and heart soak in the daily truth available to you. These daily devotionals are short, sweet but pack a punch of God’s truth with a portion of Scripture to meditate on and dig deeper.

Paul Tripp is excellent in packing truth in a short and understandable way without compromising the truth of God’s word. Here are some of my favorite quotes from New Mercies Every Morning,

Let’s start the new year admitting that there is nothing less natural for us than to live for the glory of another.

Your rest is not to be found in figuring your life out, but in trusting the One who has it all figured out for your good and His glory.

If eternity is the plan, then it makes no sense to shrink your living down to the needs and wants of this little moment.

The Bible is a big picture book that calls us to big picture living.

If God has already granted you a place in eternity, then he has also granted you all the grace you need along the way, or you’d never get there.

Only grace can deliver the deluded from the danger that they are to themselves.

God’s grace will expose what you want to hide, not to shame you, but to forgive you.

Grace shatters our darkness. Grace explodes on us with penetrating, heart exposing light. Grace illumines our dank hallways and our dark corners. The Son of grace shines the light of his grace into the darkest recesses of our hearts, not as an act of vengeance or punishment, but as a move of forgiving, transforming, and delivering grace.

This is just a drip of the ocean of grace and truth in New Mercies Every Morning.

Until Next Time

Soli Deo Gloria
