Christ's divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness. --2 Peter 1: 3 ^Pure Christianity needs no embellishment whatsoever. We find complete sufficiency in Christ and His provision for our needs. ^But too many Christians have bought in to the notion that all the spiritual resources we gain at the moment of salvation are not adequate to meet the real needs in today's complex world. So they look for something more--an emotionally exciting and self-edifying experience not found in God's Word. This failure to understand the sufficiency of Christ has opened the door to all kinds of worldy influences, causing many modern believers to mix biblical truths with seemingly helpful man-made methods such as mysticism and psychology. As a result, they wallow in a watered-down, pseudo-Christanity that has been drained of its vitality, effectiveness, and security. ^In this book John MacArthur exposes the main ways Christians have displaced their spiritual resources
Did you know that there were over 300 different kinds of dinosaurs? Some could swim, and some could fly. Some had sharp teeth to eat meat. Others had long necks to reach the tops of leafy trees. God made each dinosaur special, with its own shape and size and color. But did you know that God made something even more special than dinosaurs? He made you!Do you know how special you are to God? The Bible says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16). You are so special that God wants you to live forever with Him in Heaven! But your sinsthe bad things you doseparate you from God. So God sent His Son Jesus to take away your sins by dying on a cross. Three days later he rose to life again and now He lives in Heaven.If you are sorry for your sins and believe what Jesus did for you, just say to Him with all your heart:Dear God, thank You for loving me and making me so special. I believe that You sent Jesus to earth to take away my sins so that I can live with You forever in Heaven. I'm sorry for the bad things I've done. Please come into my life and help me live for You. Amen.
