The thing I can’t wait to say about this book: it rocked my socks off! The best part about it – it was theologically sound – and not one of the “touchy-feely” stuff the only aim of which is to make you feel good. It’s the real deal.
When the devil throws your sins into your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know the One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God. Where He is, I shall be also.”
I work with people who say they believe God is there, but don’t yet trust Him. I have non-Christian friends – some are agnostics, on their way to find out what on earth and in heaven is really going on.
Some simply don’t care, living in this moment, the “here and now.”
And sometimes I still wonder – how should I behave around them?
Should I appear to be “just like them” or should there be something different about me?
Most of the time, I hear people talk about old Abraham’s faith and obedience to God. I don’t want to diminish Abe’s faith – I still have to learn so much to believe like he did. However, even more than with Abraham’s dedication, I am always struck with Isaac’s attitude.
