So Kyle and I just bought a few new books and received then in the mail today. A lot of them are your classics by Puritans including Jonathan Edwards and newer ones including one of our favorite Pastors, John Piper. One however seems overarching not in it's eloquent writing, but in its need to be read by all Christians. It is called 'Worldliness' by C.J. Mahaney and a couple other pastors involved in the Sovereign Grace Network.
This book covers a biblical critique on music, entertainment, clothes(including modesty), and things(as in the stuff we get or buy). It is very powerful in its exhortation to confessing Christians to leave or forsake the things of this world and what it so dangerously offers to all. As Christians, there are many things that are not beneficial to ones focus on, walk, or purity towards Christ.
We need to be making war against the flesh and or sinful desires to pacify ourselves and fit in with others. God does not call us to live our lives how we see fit, He calls us to be holy as He is Holy.
May we all contemplate and submit to His good and perfect will for our lives. It is in His Word!
