Another great teaching is learning to be. A great example of this is if you are married and others ask you what you and your spouse like to do? I love this answer for my relationship to the Lord but also my husband. "The truth of the matter is that I just like to look at my wife and wonder how it can be that she has devoted her life to me. A relationship that of mutual affection, admiration and devotion that is marked by open self giving to one another and total satisfaction in one another.
Another great strength in this study was the use of the trinity. It so lost anymore the value of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and how they work together in the Gospel. This was done so well. This alone is well worth the read of this book. This is a short read and as of right now on kindle a great price.
It went into great detail of the contempt of God. The nature of contempt is not retaining the knowledge of God in our lives, in our hearts and in our affections. Only when we are retaining the knowledge of God, then we are consumed by him. He is a consuming fire. It is much easier to declare war on our sin when we are consumed by the Lord.
Love this book. Get it, read it, majesty in the Lord and be blessed.
"By raising our gaze, we come to understand the universal testimony of holy men in the pages of sacred Scripture, who, having had a momentary glimpse of the character of God, were reduced to trembling in dust and in ashes. I believe the church desperately needs this perspective like never before." -R.C. Sproul
Each of the chapters of this little book is rich for devotion, meditation, and study. I have benefited greatly by my reading of it and I plan to keep it close for further reflection. These words are powerful with scripture and worthy of second and third helpings.
Ligonier Ministries has in these pages assembled some of the finest pastors and scholars in in America (and the Cayman Islands)
Contributors include: Thabiti Anyabwile, Alistair Begg, D.A. Carson, Sinclair B. Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven J. Lawson, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., Derek W.H. Thomas
In chapter 1 titled "I Am the Lord": The Only God, R.C. Sproul gives an excellent background on the nature of God and His uniqueness contrasting scripture with popular thought.
The chapters that follow are also excellent. I was especially moved by Sinclair Ferguson's comments in chapter 2 about unfolding the mystery. "God has made us not only to have communion with Him, but in such a way that we can grasp and appreciate what that communion is like. . . . No man else may lock eyes with my wife and gaze at her the way I am privileged to do and say, "I love you with all of my being." (pg 21.)
Thabiti Anyabwile in chapter 5 speaking about sin as treason says, "Beware the evidence of treason that resists correction. Resolve now, while you are in your right mind, while you are sober, that if at any
point a brother or sister should speak to correct you, you will receive that correction with God's help. You cannot develop holiness of character in a pinch." (pg. 69.)
Lastly I'd like to mention that D.A. Carson gives much to chew on when he writes, "there is no biblical passage that says "be omnipotent, for I am omnipotent." Let's face it, omnipotence is an incommunicable attribute of God. On the other hand, there are many passages that enjoin us to love. God is love, and love is a communicable attribute of God." and "holy means "separate" and they point out that God is utterly separate. But did the voices around the throne in Isaiah 6:3 really cry, "Separate, separate, separate is the Lord Almighty"? and "Moral, moral, moral is the Lord Almighty"? No. At its core, in the tightest concentric circle, holy is almost an adjective for God." (pg 80.)
As you can see this book offers much to think about no matter what your tradition. If you value the scriptures you will be built up by reading this work. I commend it to all.
Reformation Trust Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes for which I am eternally grateful.
