“The greatest goal in the believer’s life is not his own enjoyment of his salvation. His highest goal is not learning the truths of Scripture, nor even teaching and preaching the Word. His greatest goal is to live Jesus Christ so that men may know the Father.”
Against the flow of consumerist Christianity, Dr. Pentecost reminds the reader that the Christian life is not primarily about Jesus being your best friend, finding the keys to happiness, or just making it to heaven. In this insightful look at godliness, one of America’s most respected and practical theologians strikes at the heart of the calling that encompasses every aspect of life.
Life in Christ redefines our purposes and reshapes our perspectives. With our eternal destination secured, we embark on a lifelong journey toward godliness, being changed into the image of Christ as we live a life empowered by the Holy Spirit. Centered around Scripture, Designed to Be Like Him takes you step-by-step through a theologically sound pattern for maturing in Christ. Fellowship, conduct, conflict, and maturity are all discussed in detailed, yet understandable, language.
