Friendly Reminders

So here's to turning over a new leaf!
Get this: Starting a book and actually finishing it!
I am the worst for starting one, then another, then...jusssst one more!
Most of the time I will get mid way through one book and then pick up another book until I have like 10 books on the go and then I have to decide which one to take with me to work for my break and usually end up bringing zilch because I can't decide.
(and I wrote that long sentence as it's exactly how it would come out of my mouth)

So here's to reading two or three books (as I do enjoy reading up on different things at once) plus the Bible.

The first two books being:
Chosen by God by R.C. Sproul-This book talks about the doctrine of election which I already have gained convictions on, but want to read it moreless to be reminded of God's love for me.

The Pressure's Off by Larry Crabb-Heard this book was a really great read for my one friend. Once again to be reminded of God's love for me, before my hands getting in the way.

"Chosen by God" by R.C. Sproul is an excellent book. Short, simple, and very well explained. Have fun reading it! be edified sister! would love to discuss the book if you are willing. :D

yes! once i finish reading most definitely!
its funny today i was mentioning to a couple of friends that i really want to have a good meaty theological conversation.
i think in reading Sprouls book i am hoping to further see God's love for me, as i already adhere to the doctrine of predestination

cool, a good theological conversation it is then. I think I may read it again after I'm done reading "The Reason for God" by Dr. Tim Keller, I like it so far.

And It's true, God's love emanates even more when one finally grasps a clearer and biblical understand of the sovereignty of God and His election. "It is a theology that begins and ends with grace" Dr. Sproul.
