Throughout the August Bank holiday week we held a number of events around Brighton and at the church as part of our Real People changes lives week. We were really please to have the opportunity to meet so many people and get to know them a little.
The events held included Coffee Mornings, A Fun Day on the Level, Authentic Chinese Cookery workshop and on the Sunday we held an open evening where some of the members of the church told us how their lives had been changed by Jesus.
A real spiritual classic! I quote from the authors introduction: “The immense importance of adorning the doctrine of God our saviour and making it lovely and beautiful by our daily habits and tempers has been too far overlooked. Sound doctrine is useless if it is not accompanied by a holy life. It worse than useless it does positive harm it is my firm impression that we need a thorough revival in scriptural holiness.”
From the chapter of Sin Ryle comments: “For my part I am persuaded the more light we have, the more we see our sinfulness, the nearer we get to heaven the more we are clothed with humility. I am convinced that the first step towards attaing a higher standard of holiness is to realize more fully the amazing sinfulness of sin.”
Other chapters include: Sanctification, holiness, the fight, the cost, growth, assurance, Moses an example, Lot a beacon, a woman remembered, Christ’s greatest trophy, the ruler of waves, The Church which Christ builds, visible churches warned, Loves thou me? Without Christ, Thirst relieved, Unsearchable riches, wants of the times, Christ is all, extracts from old writers.
Overall this book has so many highlights, and is a real spur to pursue holiness.
