APPLYING GOD’S WORD MORE FULLY: The Secret of a Successful Christian Life

Front Cover
Christian Publishing House, Oct 6, 2016 - Religion - 515 pages

 THERE IS A GENUINE HAPPINESS, contentment, and joy, which come from reading, studying and applying God’s Word. This is true because the Scriptures offer us guidance and direction that aids us in living a life that coincides with our existence as a creation of Almighty God. For example, we have a moral law that was written on our heart. (Rom. 2:14-15) However, at the same time, we have a warring against the law of our mind and taking us captive in the law of sin, which is in our members. (Rom. 7:21-25) When we live by the moral law, it brings us joy, when we live by the law of sin; it brings about distress, anxiety, regret to both mind and heart, creating a conflict between our two natures.

In our study of the Bible, we can interact with a living God who wants a personal relationship with us. And in APPLYING GOD'S WORD MORE FULLY, we will learn how to engage His words like never before.  Andrews helps his readers create the opportunity to grow in the faith through practical chapters that result in their spiritual growth whether they have been a Christian for a few months or many years. The biblically grounded information herein will help the reader overcome difficulties, grow and maintain a relationship with their Creator. The reader will learn to observe, understand, and apply the Bible to transform their life.
