Well, I gotta admit, I’m a bit bored with tracking my goals. “Boast not thyself of tomorrow,” God said, and it’s hard to live every day to the fullest if I’m at the same time trying to get certain things accomplished that really don’t matter much.
However, I do want to share a bit about a book I just finished reading, Balancing the Christian Life by Dr. Charles C. Ryrie. As with everything of Ryrie’s that I’ve had the privilege to read, BCF was thorough, well researched, and very biblically sound.
He touches on subjects such as lordship salvation, repentance, speaking in tongues, the baptism of the Spirit and the filling of the Spirit, and a whole lot more, explaining from the Bible what (if any) place in our lives we ought to give such things.
Far too many are worshipping a god while claiming to be spiritual, holding up emotional experiences of gibberish in gatherings, falling unconcious, and more as evidence of spirituality. In this book you will learn that spirituality is inseparably linked to a growing, mature relationship with God through the Holy Spirit according to the truth of the Holy Bible.
The book is easy to read and should be understandable to most people who have been made a new creature via belief in Christ. I recommend it to younger Christians as well; get started on Bible truths now so you won’t get mixed up into something unbiblical later on.
