    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

God’s Will Regarding Character

The Practice of GodlinessJerry Bridges:

As we prayerfully expose ourselves to the Scriptures, we begin to understand what God’s will is regarding our conduct and character. And then as the Holy Spirit applies His word to specific areas of our lives, and as we are obedient to His promptings, we begin to develop Bible-based convictions. Our values begin to change so that God’s standard becomes our delight and our desire. (The Practice of Godliness)

  1. So entirely true. The moments I have heard the Spirit speak to me was throgh Scripture. If we don’t know the Word, we can’t understand His language.


    • This is my experience also. God speaks to us through the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit helps us to remember and apply it at just the right time.


      • Amen. I remember I was having a hard time letting go of a particular horrific event in my life. There was a certain type of band that I was drawn to during that time. Even though God was working on healing me – I was drawn back to that music almost as a way to punish ,myself for the events. One day in the car, I was fighting with myself over putting that CD in. Clear as day, in my mind, I heard “remember Lot’s wife.” I haven’t looked back at that music since, and my healimg continues!


        • Praise God!


          • Amen!
