Reading Matters! Readers are leaders and leaders are readers. It is true that the great successful leaders read but they did not just read any thing. They took into consideration what they were reading. Our founding fathers read the Bible and Pilgrim Progress! High quality literature is thought-provoking as well as entertaining. It inspires greatness and character development, and doesn't shy away from dealing with difficult topics.
Yet should we read any book we find?
So you see it is not always a good thing to be reading because it is like eating. We do not consume junk food on a regular basses so neither should "fun" books be read all the time.Plainly written, this book aims for the heart.
The bulk of Washer’s book examines 1st John. The book of 1st John Washer rightly notes contains a great deal of teaching on how the Christian can have assurance of their salvation. As Washer draws out the teaching of 1st John, he does so with a view to point Christians to the truth of the gospel contained in the Apostle John’s teaching. 1 John is a very important book for a number of reasons but as Washer shows, it is important especially at this point because it helps Christians to have a standard to examine themselves to see if they have evidence from God’s Word that they have been born again. Do read this book today!This subject matter is serious business as it involves matters of eternal importance. Paul Washer has provided one with something needed to be read and reread to get the full picture!
Those in the pulpit are called by God to declare the truth of God’s word and to reject the easy-believism, singular salvation call devoid of a life lived in service to God approach. Washer’s book is a clarion call to all of God’s people to get serious about this thing called the Christian life. Prepare to be thoroughly challenged! All should read it. It is top favorite of mine!
