The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself
WHAT KEEPS YOU FROM LOVING SOMEONE GOD LOVES SO MUCH?
How might your life change if you really believed God loves you—not just in your head but down where it counts, in your heart?
Imagine how different things could be: The lies you’ve believed about yourself all these years dispelled. The wounds of abuse healed. Your future lit with hope, peace, and purpose. Your closeness with God and others deepened immeasurably. The true, heaven-born you free at last to live a life unclouded by shame, guilt, and fear and empowered to love others fully.
That can be you. The truth is far, far better than you've known.
Used both individually and in Bible studies, recovery groups, men’s and women’s retreats, and private counseling across the country, The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself invites you on a journey of God-discovery, self-discovery, and truth-discovery. This expanded edition sheds still greater light on some of life’s most wounding influences—and the way to move beyond them. Drawing on their many years of biblical counseling practice, Jerry and Denise Basel help you experience God’s love as the daily, motivating force in your life. And they show you how to stop punishing and start loving someone whom your heavenly Father loves very much—YOU.
You see, the missing commandment has never been missing from the Bible, only from your life. But that can change, starting now.
