Breakthrough: Finding Freedom in Christ by Barb Roose

Let go of feeling like you are not a “good enough” Christian and find freedom in Christ by studying Paul’s letter to the Galatians in Breakthrough by Barb Roose.

Have you ever felt that being a good Christian means you’ve got to follow a bunch of rules and measure up? If so, you aren’t alone! Even the believers in the early church struggled to let go of rule-keeping and performance in order to embrace God’s free gift of grace.

In his Letter to the Galatians, Paul pours out his heart and faith to set them straight, addressing so many of the same questions and problems we still face today, such as, “Why do you think you have to try to be perfect for God?” and “How do we stay free in Christ?” If you’ve ever struggled with these questions or felt trapped by rules or religion, this study will provide a path for you to find freedom in Christ as you learn how to:

  • break free from legalism and performance-based acceptance,
  • stop trying to measure up and embrace God’s grace,
  • distinguish between lies and truth,
  • discover “you can’t mess up God’s love for you,” and
  • cultivate and celebrate spiritual breakthroughs.

As you learn to walk in freedom, you’ll be a shining light of God’s hope and glory to the world around you!
