Taking the initiative and asking a fellow Christian who is further along in their walk to read with us can provide accountability, increased understanding, and growth in ways that reading and learning alone wouldn’t.
Do you ever pick up a book—and a few pages in you realize you’re not sure what you just read?
“Can you give me one book to read that explains what you think it means to be a Christian?” While this may be a dream scenario, it’s something we all should be and can be prepared for.
When we read of God's plan of salvation, it's our natural tendency to put ourselves at the centre. We want a customized plan for our lives from God, and may subtly (or openly!) assume that God's plan for the world has us at its centre.
The right books can remind us of who God is and what he has done, and keep our eyes on the eternal prize that has been laid up for us.
