As Christian publishers rushes to print books relevant to this trying times, sometimes the real message might get lost. Yes, I praise those publisher for helping churches and ministries with biblical answers and they are doing a good job. However,  we almost miss something that is more important than COVID19 or the racial crisis.

Book Review: “Amaze Them With God” by Kevin DeYoung

yplzqs4

So who remember the book Don’t Call It a Comeback by Kevin DeYoung? Well I do remember it but not something that made an impact to me or to others. I dont think it made waves or became a bestseller. Nor some of my Reformed friends ever mentioned or recommended it. I think it never rings a bell with you too. It was published in 2011 and the young, the restless and the Reformed is at its peak. So Reformed books and blogs (like mine) where in abundance and a book like Kevin DeYoung’s Don’t Call It a Comeback might get lost and end up in a pre loved bookshops.

The Quotable Round-Up #78

tpn6bjcHello! I hope you’re having a great day as you dive in this brand new collection of quotes! This time we are featuring quotes from the book “The Art of Turning” by Kevin DeYoung. And as always if you got stoked with these quotes, please get the book at your nearest Christian bookstore or on Amazon.

“When we first do something we know we should not, we feel that twinge of conscience. We feel pain in our extremities like we do when we are outside in the cold. Yet if we persist in doing what is foolish, there comes a time when we start to feel better about engaging in such behavior. We no longer consider that it is wrong. The bad stuff doesn’t feel so bad anymore, which is when we are in great spiritual peril. This is the danger of having a seared conscience.”

“Are you kicking against the goads? Are you grieving the Holy Spirit? What is your conscience telling you? Is the Holy Spirit pleading with you to see what you have refused to see? When conscience accuses us of wrong, let us turn from the sin with all haste.”

“If we walk around feeling all the time like we are a failure as a Christian, a failure as a parent, and a failure as a pastor, we have not grasped the gift of the gospel. This is not what it means to have the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our life.”

“A conscience is not only indispensable to living a life pleasing to God and enjoying peace with God; it is essential for living as the human beings God made us to be.” 

“There is a close connection between the work of the Holy Spirit and the operation of the conscience. John Flavel, a Puritan clergyman and author, observed that the conscience “is God’s spy, and man’s overseer.” 

“When the Holy Spirit shines a light on what is bad (or good) in us, it is then the role of the conscience to appropriate the work of the Spirit (John 3:20–21).”

“The Holy Spirit works in tandem with the conscience to produce in us a life of godliness and peace.”

The Quotable Round-Up #16

In a recent article, 20 minutes of reading a book everyday makes a big difference in one’s life. If you don’t have the time to read why not include in your quite time. Instead of a devotional book, you can finish it with a book that can meet your spiritual need. A chapter will do. Currently I’m reading “God at Work” by Gene Edward Veith which has been profitable to me. I hope you will try it to and see the impact of it on your life. Lets continue the discussion next week on how to give 20 minutes of your daily time in reading and as promised your weekly dose of quotes:
“Everything, in all its exquisite and intricate details-things that others may consider trivial but are important to us-is governed by the overruling hand of God.”
–Derek W.H. Thomas
“Through highs and lows, better and worse, richer and poorer, sickness and health, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, when Christ becomes your all. A gospel-shaped life fills every space it takes with unconquerable faith and unfailing love.”
–Matt Chandler
“God wants us to offer ourselves to Him, turn from the ways of the world, and be transformed. Then we will have something, better than special revelations and words about the future-we’ll have wisdom.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“God’s Word is living and active. When we read the Bible, we hear from God with a confidence we find in no other book and from no other voice. We ca read the Scriptures knowing that this is what the Holy Spirit says.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“Wisdom is knowing God and doing as He commands. Foolishness, on the other hand, is turning from God and listening to yourself.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“God never assures us of health,success,or ease. But He promise something better: He promise to make us loving,pure,and humble like Christ.In short, God’s will is that you and I get happy and holy in Jesus.”
–Kevin DeYoung
“The most important issues for God are moral purity, theological fidelity, compassion, joy, our witness, faithfulness, hospitality, love, worship, and faith. These are His big concern. The problem is that we tend to focus most of our attention on everything else.”
— Kevin DeYoung

Kevin clearly gives the three kinds of will of God. Then he points out the five reasons why we fret about God’s will. After that, he listed why the conventional approach wont work and strike them all down.

“Just Do Something” brings us back to Matthew 6:33 and reinforce it like we never had it before. In the latter part of the book, he lead us to hold on God’s wisdom in what we want to pursue which really matters in knowing God’s will. Finishing this book will give you a feeling of relieve that God’s will is not “Where’s Waldo?” cartoon. Yes you can know God’s will!

A never to miss book on God’s will, “Just Do Something” will get you gear on action to do what God intents us to do. This short book packs up some biblical and truly practical lessons for us Christians who are seeking God’s will. Its readable and you’ll love share it with someone. Highly recommended.
