Life never lacks for improvementin ourselves, in our relationships, in just about everything. But all our brave stabs at getting better, if they ever change anything, are incomplete at best, complete failures at worst. Sometimes much worse.
Unless . . .
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the great unless of lifeboth for those who already believe (but cant believe the messes theyre still capable of making), as well as those who dont yet believe but just know their way isnt working.
Recovering Redemption, written with a pastors bold intensity and a counselors discerning insight, takes you deeply into Scripture to take you deeply inside yourself, discovering that the heart of all our problems is truly the problem of our hearts. But because of what God has done, and because of what God can do, the most confident, contented person you know could actually be youredeemed through Jesus Christ.
None of us, really, can do whats required to change our lives for the better, taking whats persistently frustrating and making it perfectly satisfying. Yet as hopeless as that may sound, it is the flat-line truth in which good news comes to life . . . to your life. For just as whats lost can be found, whats wrong caneven nowbe recovered.
Actualmente Matt participa en los esfuerzos de plantación de iglesias a nivel tanto local como internacional mediante la Iglesia The Village y diversas alianzas estratégicas. Se desempeña como presidente de Hechos 29, una organización de plantación de iglesias a escala mundial. Durante los 10 últimos años, Hechos 29 surgió de una pequeña congregación y se extendió a unas 500 iglesias en los Estados Unidos y alrededor del Mundo. Además de disertar en conferencias alrededor del mundo, Matt ha escrito varios libros, entre los que se incluyen The Explicit Gospel (El evangelio explícito) y Creature of the Word (Criatura de la Palabra), publicados en abril y octubre de 2012 respectivamente. Aparte de Jesús, su mayor alegría es haberse casado con Lauren y ser el padre de sus tres hijos Audrey, Reid y Norah.

"Matt Chandler is one of the best Bible preachers on the earth and one of the godliest men I know." -Mark Driscoll, Founding and Preaching Pastor, Mars Hill Church
"Matt Chandler presents the gospel in a way that is balanced, hope-filled, and very, very serious, all the while presented with Matt's trademark humor." -Mark Dever, President, 9Marks
Because we have a tendency to drift from the gospel, we must be reoriented back to the gospel. We must recover a right understanding and application of the gospel. We must see that the gospel is the fuel for salvation and sanctification and the panacea to fix all things.
The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9
I can't. God can.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
God meets you where you are.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
