In his book, The Pillars of Christian Character, John MacArthur begins by teaching Christians that our faith shapes everything in our walk with the LORD. John says that faith and obedience are linked in our covenant relationship with God made sure by the blood of Jesus. Christians are to have a life marked by increasing holiness and have an attitude of humility. Also, we must maintain unity in the Church and in the home before an unbelieving world. Our life is to be marked by spiritual maturity (not carnalness) through prayer, reading and obey God’s Word. As we grow in the LORD we will have joy and that the attitude of ingratitude has no place in our life. John goes on to say that Christians should be self disciplined by being organized, being on time, keeping our word, finishing what we start, accepting correction, practice self denial and welcoming responsibility. Believers need to understand that worship is giving God the honor He is due and it is our duty to give Him honor. We are to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. I enjoyed this book very much.

We are using this book in our weekly Bible study. John MacArther puts it into plain english. Though a Christian all my life he brings thought provoking information on how to be a better Christian. So many people now days do religion on their terms and not Gods. This book will bring you into the correct format to be in line with God and his Kingdom.
