"Becoming a Christian means being sick of your sin, longing for forgiveness and rescue from present evil and future hell, and affirming your commitment to the Lordship of Christ to the point where you are willing to forsake everything. I've said it before and I'll say it again: it isn't just holding up your hand or walking down an aisle and saying, 'I love Jesus.'" ―John MacArthur
Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur brings his deep knowledge of Scripture to this foundational subject. Step by step, he walks through the impact of God's sovereignty, our submission, the characteristics of holy living, and our assurance of salvation. MacArthur makes the case that the Christian life is full and rich―but not easy. It requires sacrifice, perseverance, and transformation in the ongoing process of becoming more like Christ. And it is absolutely worth the cost.
The Truth About Series For decades, MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and a greater respect for God's truth. In The Truth About Series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God's character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith.
I have read slowly through this book, while reading many others during this time. It is a wonderful thing to me how in different seasons the books I read help to take the layers off a topic I am investigating or learning about.
Christ is the Lord and everything is his.
While I do not doubt the Lordship of Christ at all, I am actually completely at peace and blessed by the knowledge that He indeed is Christ, this book is an excellent tool for thoroughly examining the question of lordship.
MacArthur's use of Biblical text throughout the book give good support for the claims he makes in this book. And the reader can surely understand the correct response needed from a Follower of Christ.
This book is a good addition to the reading list of one desiring to grow in understanding of the Lordship of Christ, or in the ability to communicate the topic Biblically.
