Life In Christ

To be a disciple of Jesus Christ is to be in a position of privilege and blessing beyond anything the world might offer, begins author Jeremy Walker. Life in Christ explores the unsearchable riches of the Christian pilgrimage and traces its trajectory, highlighting key elements in the believers  experience. Do you wrestle with assurance? Have you grasped the engagement demanded in Christian living? Do you find the way wearying at times? Do you struggle with your Christian identity? Walker provides instruction for Christians to assess their own standing and progress in the faith exhorting and equipping and always pointing them ahead to the hope of the glory of Christ. Along the way, he encourages God s people to live a life to the praise of His glory as he examines some of the basic truths that establish and direct a true child of God.

Jeremy Walker does an excellent job in his book, explaining first the gospel; that is the salvation message.  He then walks you through the next chapters, showing us that we are free, and no longer bound to sin.   

He also assures his readers about eternal security, which I think is very important, especially to new believers.  It is so important to know that we are secure in Christ!

Chapter 7 reminds us all that we are "a work in progress".  We can do nothing to work out our salvation, and we are new creatures in Christ, the old is gone and the new keeps growing.  

This is a good book, a recommended read, although not an "easy" read, it is a short book;  if it is read 
with concentration and care will be a great asset!
