Beauty and Glory of Christian Living
Title: Beauty and Glory of Christian Living
Publisher: Reformation Heritage Books
When the seed of life is sown in their hearts, God’s people grow up beautifully and gloriously. Taking up this botanical analogy, The Beauty and Glory of Christian Living opens by discussing the divine roots of the Christian life in being united to Christ in faith, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit, becoming spiritually minded, and living by the means of grace. It then explores how our Christian lives branch out to influence our families, our workplaces, and the world. Finally, a series of chapters deal with weathering the storms of life, when we are pelted with affliction, sexual temptation, negative thought patterns, hard times, sickness, and death. In all of this, we see a faithful God who causes His people to flourish for His glory.
“There is something magnetic about these addresses as they present the attractiveness of the Christian life. They remind me of a definitive time in my life sixty years ago when I first read Dr. Lloyd-Jones’s Studies in the Sermon on the Mount. I was gripped with the loveliness of living a holy life. How beautiful is the life of poverty of spirit, mourning for sin, hungering and thirsting for righteousness, purity of heart, and being a peacemaker. This book has the same impact.” — Geoffrey Thomas, pastor of Alfred Place Baptist Church in Aberystwyth, Wales, and author of The Holy Spirit
