Every Christian at one time or another has probably asked, What is God's will for me in this situation? In this accessible booklet, Wayne Grudem offers practical guidance on how to make biblically informed decisions through the guidance of the Holy Spirit in accordance with God's word.
- The role that circumstances and feelings should play in making decisions
- How Scripture informs daily choices
- What it means to be led by the Holy Spirit
At some point, every Christian wonders, What is God's will for me in this situation? There are many situations for which Scripture doesn't provide a black-and-white answer. In this book, adapted from his larger work Christian Ethics, Wayne Grudem helps readers stop overcomplicating God's will and instead embrace the different ways they acquire wisdom for daily life. He lays out guidelines for making decisions both big and small. After looking at the 4 dimensions of every action (the action itself, attitudes, motives, and results), Grudem works through 9 sources of information and guidance, both objective (information from the Bible, information from studying the situation, information about ourselves, advice from others, changed circumstances) and subjective (conscience, heart, a human spirit, and the Holy Spirit). Readers will gain insight into how to make the right decisions about situations that arise in their lives.
