The Hidden Truth About Your Identity In Christ
by John MacArthur
Best-selling author and pastor Dr. John MacArthur reveals one crucial word that revolutionizes what it means to follow Jesus.
Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration—that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession.
But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere. That’s because it has been lost in translation. In this gripping book, Dr. John MacArthur uses deep Bible teaching and historical evaluation to expertly uncover the one forgotten word that restores the Bible’s definition of true Christian freedom.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
God is so good to us that many times in our culture we forget we are to serve Him. Instead we look to what God will do for us. This book addresses that mentality. New Testament believers didn’t see God as a spiritual Santa Claus they could use to get what they want. They saw God as their Lord, their King, and their Master. Christianity is a life of service to our master, The Lord Jesus Christ. When we understand this, then we are ready to give our lives as a living sacrifice to Him and we’re ready to become the sons of God. John MacArthur is easy to understand and thorough as he shows what our role as a Christian really is. Great book. Doctrinally sound.
