New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional Reviews

  • Jeanie

    If there is a devotion to get, it is New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp. It takes a special gift to communicate the deep things of God in a simplistic way and that is why I subscribe to his blog and read his books. He is a great communicator of the truth.

    New Morning Mercies is the mercies we find in our relationship with God when we empty ourselves and pursue the truth. Each day starts with scripture and ends with a commentary. Each day you will find yourself appreciating the mercy of God.

    If there is a devotion to get, it is New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp. It takes a special gift to communicate the deep things of God in a simplistic way and that is why I subscribe to his blog and read his books. He is a great communicator of the truth.

    New Morning Mercies is the mercies we find in our relationship with God when we empty ourselves and pursue the truth. Each day starts with scripture and ends with a commentary. Each day you will find yourself appreciating the mercy of God. The mercy of God is shown in every aspect of our lives whether we believe we need salvation or not. For those that understand the need for salvation, this is like a treasure hunt and you will be richer for it.

    Some of the quotes from the book are just a few that I underline so make sure as you read, get the highlighter and reflect.

    You can be courageous in admitting your sin precisely because God is richly abundant in his mercy. He comes to you in mercy not because you are good but because you are a sinner, and he knows that because of this condition, you are unable to help yourself.”

    “Be thankful his majesty is your protection, his glory is your motivation, his grace is your help, and his wisdom is your direction. He is infinitely smarter than you and me in our most brilliant moments

    “It's natural to want mercy for yourself but justice for others. It's natural to be very aware of the sin others, yet blind to your own. If we are ever going to be people of mercy, we need bountiful mercy ourselves, because what stands in the way of our being a community of mercy is us.”

    “Prayer is abandoning my addiction to other glories and delighting in the one glory that is truly glorious-the glory of God

    You find joy in your inclusion in his work of redemption. You find hope in the glorious future that is to come. You are amazed by the fact that because Immanuel has invaded your life by his grace, you are never, ever alone. You find peace in the fact that grace means you are never left to the small resources of your own wisdom, righteousness, and strength. You meditate on God’s glory and goodness, then celebrate. You rejoice in the fact that you no longer have to look for life in the people, situations, and locations around you, but you’ve been given life—life that is eternal.”

    This book would make a great gift for those that are on your list. It brings the good news of the Gospel. It brings you as the reader in a place of worship.

    A special thank you Crossway, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Are you reminded of your need for the gospel everyday? Frankly, for most of us, the answer is we’re not. This amnesia of ours is so bad even after we know the importance of the gospel, we somehow forget all about it again. So what can we do about it?

    The first step would be to get this devotion and use it. Paul Tripp has done an excellent job in this book by helping christians, young and old, to see how we need the gospel each and everyday. There is one reading every day for the whole day, and everyday as you read each devotion, you begin to see firstly how the bible is real to your life and secondly, you begin to see how the gospel can be applied in your lives.

    In this devotion, Tripp does this day in, day out. Sometimes as evangelicals, we may see the gospel very narrowly — as a way to be saved from our sins. Tripp does not repeat such mistakes, instead Tripp shows how in every moment of our lives, we need, desperately need the gospel.

    No doubt, for some readers, they might find the mediations too brief. However. the author is not at fault for this, for these readers, they are encouraged to read ‘A Shelter in the Time of Storm’ and ‘Whiter Than Snow’ by the same author who showed deep meditation on specific passages.

    One suggestion for future addition would be to include not just scripture index, but also a topic index. This may be one of the resources one would want to refer to in different situations, not having a topic index will not be helpful in this endeavour.

    This is a highly recommended devotional since there is far too little devotional material that shows us how to apply all the word of God in all areas of our lives and at the same time reminds us of the goodness of the gospel.

    Rating: 4.5 / 5

    Among the first things I do most mornings is look for the gospel trifecta of tweets from Paul Tripp. There is not much twitter activity to the former pastor, author, counselor, marriage seminar guru, but each day there are three quick reminders of the goodness of grace that is Jesus.

    Among the first things I do most mornings is look for the gospel trifecta of tweets from Paul Tripp. There is not much twitter activity to the former pastor, author, counselor, marriage seminar guru, but each day there are three quick reminders of the goodness of grace that is Jesus.

    Tripp has gone beyond the tweets and provided a wonderful devotional resource in his latest book New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional. Crossway offered a free copy to give it a test drive so I gladly took it. It has probably been a few months now that I have been opening the day with Tripp’s devotional and it is rich in the gracious goodness of the gospel and is such a timely reminder of the truth.

    Each daily entry (they are all by date) is easy to read and brief but not lacking in gospel goodness. Some days there is some poetry but most give a short narrative about how the gospel impacts our lives each day. In addition, each day has a biblical text as a suggested place to continue study.

    Here is a taste of the goodness:

    “God is not discouraged in the face of our weakness and wondering. His ask whether it’s worth it. No, in the face of our ongoing struggles, his plan marches on. Why? It marches on because it is not based on our character, but on his. Redemption does not rest on our resolve, but on his. Salvation doesn’t hang on our strength, but on his. We have hope because it all comes from him and rests on him. It is humbling to admit, but it is the only place of hope. Nothing of our salvation depends on us. It all rests on his sovereign grace. Here is the bottom line: he is able, he is willing, and he is faithful. Grace supplies everything we need. Grace will win!”

    “You do violence to the Word of God when you reduce it to a book of theology, principles, and rules. You simply cannot make sense of Scripture without the person and work—the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

    “You are perfect in the eyes of God because the perfect righteousness of Jesus has been attributed to your spiritual account. You are righteous before God even in those up on your behalf. Yes, you should acknowledge the sad reality of remaining sin, but you must not make that sin your meditation. Meditate on and celebrate the amazing grace that has completely changed your identity, potential, and destiny.”

    If you are looking for a gift that will keep on giving or need daily gospel reminder for yourself, try New Morning Mercies. One great thing I have learned in reading the devotional is that the entries are just as meaningful and worthwhile in the evening!

    On every page of this 365-day devotional Tripp reminds us of our need for God's grace every day. Covering such topics as sin, corporate worship, spiritual warfare and repentance, to name just a few, Tripp's words encourages us to set our minds on Jesus and the grace His life offers us.

    Each day's devotional starts with a short soundbite that introduces the day's theme or topic. Tripp then explores it via a personal reflection using Scripture to stress the many promises that Jesus' life and death

    Each day's devotional starts with a short soundbite that introduces the day's theme or topic. Tripp then explores it via a personal reflection using Scripture to stress the many promises that Jesus' life and death has made available to us. Each day ends with a specific Scripture reference which adds further food for thought.

    What I particularly appreciate about Paul Tripp's writings are that he writes as the everyman, there are no airs or graces. It's clear these meditations are as much for himself as they are for we readers. And secondly I love how he reflects on the power of grace and it's accessibility. We need it all day everyday and what's lovely is God offers it to us in extravagant abundance.

    Having this read this devotional over the course of the past year I understand why Ann Voskamp says she "can't afford to miss one word" of what Paul Tripp writes. I'm now making my way through his collection plus the content on his website.

    This is one of, if not, the best devotional I've read simply because you can't leave it without stewing on the message of God's grace.

    I'll keep this review short & sweet: I do not normally like devotionals. The multiple times I've tried one, I've found them lacking. So when I say I really enjoyed New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp, I think that should tell even those who wrestle with finding a good devotional to give this one a try. Admittedly, I missed some days but I did find that there were some days where Tripp repeated a devotional. While some may find this annoying or "lazy", I found it refreshing as I often for

    I'll keep this review short & sweet: I do not normally like devotionals. The multiple times I've tried one, I've found them lacking. So when I say I really enjoyed New Morning Mercies by Paul David Tripp, I think that should tell even those who wrestle with finding a good devotional to give this one a try. Admittedly, I missed some days but I did find that there were some days where Tripp repeated a devotional. While some may find this annoying or "lazy", I found it refreshing as I often forget things. The repetition served to help further cement a truth about God into my head.

    In all honesty, if I can't find another suitable devotional for 2018, I'll just read through this one again. I enjoyed it that much.

  • Kim Levell

    I look forward to reading this every single morning. Probably my favorite daily devotional to date. Highly recommend

  • Jim Becker

    This is the third time I have read this book. It is very good. Every day I read a short devotional on grace. That's it. Grace, grace, and more grace. This is probably the only book I would recommend people to buy lots of copies of and give them away. Really.

  • Jill Robinson

    I've been reading this nearly daily since July. Great devotional.

    Devotionals can be a dime a dozen. The way they are laid out is almost as predictable as a crime show procedural. Readers know there will be an entry for each day and that the entry will not be very long. Usually there is a scripture to accompany the devotional and after each one is read a reader moves onto the next day. As a result, it is tough to add something new to the genre, but Paul Tripp does this with his yearly devotional, "New Morning Mercies." He does this by simply focusing on the fo

    Devotionals can be a dime a dozen. The way they are laid out is almost as predictable as a crime show procedural. Readers know there will be an entry for each day and that the entry will not be very long. Usually there is a scripture to accompany the devotional and after each one is read a reader moves onto the next day. As a result, it is tough to add something new to the genre, but Paul Tripp does this with his yearly devotional, "New Morning Mercies." He does this by simply focusing on the foundational aspect of the Christian life, which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The Gospel is a mystery that Tripp helps the reader unpack each day in this devotional. As one learns from the book, it is uniquely simple, yet completely profound. As a result, Christians can pursue two paths towards the Gospel. First, they can believe they understand all they need to know about the Gospel and never go any deeper. This can stem from teaching that mainly emphasizes the saving element of the Gospel and not much else. However, the grace of the Gospel does much more than that, it sanctifies and grows a person in Christ. This is the second path Christians should take in regard to the Gospel once they are eternally secure by the grace of God. By growing in one's understanding and application of the Gospel each day transformation occurs that eventually leads one to fall more in love with Jesus. There becomes a deep affection for Christ that encourages one to continue to unpack the mysteries that the Gospel has to offer. In other words, the ability to understand the Gospel is without end and Tripp masterfully writes about it each day in this devotional.

    As Tripp writes each day's entry one thing he does that is uncommon when compared to other devotionals is, he does not embed the scripture into the book. Instead he encourages readers at the end of each day by stating, "For further study and encouragement" and then provides the scripture passage connected. This is another strength of the devotional because it means the reader will have to go to their Bibles to read the passage. Too often many devotionals provide a small scripture quote at the top of a day's entry, which may cause readers to feel they do not need to use their Bible since it is provided. However, Tripp does not do this because he encourages his readers to read "further" by giving them the text connected to the day's devotional. Granted some people may not like this aspect of the book. They may argue that people will still not use their Bibles in either format. This may be true, but this is where New Morning Mercies content qualities excels. Often each days devotional inspired this reader to further read the scripture to grow deeper in the mysteries of God's Gospel grace. In short, Tripp's devotional points one towards scripture and not from it, and that is fantastic strength of this book. That said, there is one concern about the book.

    The ebook version is not as accessible as a hardbound book. Admittedly this reader loves ebooks and it was still cumbersome to navigate through. Simply, a physical copy of the book navigates between various entries much easier. Despite this one complaint it is still worth the purchase at the ebook level because the way Tripp communicates the Gospel. However, if you have a choice and are looking to pick up a copy it is encouraged to buy a physical copy.

    In conclusion, New Morning Mercies communicates the simple and profound nature of of the Gospel, which makes it a fantastic devotional for the whole year. Not every entry is an inspirational masterpiece, but most days one should be able to marvel at the grace of God from that day's devotional. Plus, each person is different and the days that did not touch this reader are substantial enough that they may profoundly touch others readers differently. The great thing is that Tripp consistently connects each entry to the Gospel that each day should benefit someone, no matter who is reading. So go pick up a copy and you will not regret the purchase because it is a great return on the investment. You will be guaranteed to fall more in love with Christ, which will liberate your faith and life to new levels of grace and peace.

    This is a great, gospel centered devotional. My rating is simply based on comparison to my favorite devotionals. This is a good one, but I would still have a few others I would recommend before this one (namely Spurgeon's Morning and Evening).
