Confronting the Sins We Tolerate By: Jerry Bridges
In this book, Dr. Jerry Bridges presents a no-holds-barred look at the tolerable sins in our lives and blatantly helps us to understand that to tolerate sin our spiritual lives is like tolerating cancer in our physical bodies. It seems that believers have gotten so preoccupied by the "major" sins of our culture while conveniently overlooking our own sins. This book will cause you to take a deep look into the mirror and bring conviction to your life using God's Word. Dr. Bridges has also authored another book called The Pursuit of Holiness. In these two books, it seems that the Holy Spirit has helped Jerry Bridges to call us back to the "pursuit" of what really matters according to Matthew 5:48.
The Indwelling Life of Christ
All of Him in All of Me By: Major W. Ian Thomas
I have read this little book many times through and given several copies of this book to numerous friends. In this book, Major Ian Thomas helps us to understand just exactly how Christ was able to accomplish the Father's perfect will by allowing the Father to completely consume His life. He pleads with us to do the same by yielding ourselves completely to the control of the Holy Spirit. This book renders itself well to all kinds of applications. Read it in conjunction with your personal devotional time each day or study it along with a group. At the end of every short section there are a few thought-provoking questions to help you meditate on the principle of that chapter.
