What'cha lookin' at?
A recent search on Amazon’s website for the top six Christian spiritual growth books revealed a startling surprise. Of the six books, two were written to inspire women; one was a devotional and another a reprint was written by a theologian 10 years ago; one was for personal growth, and the number one book is a box set of Christian fiction. These books deserve their place on the charts but there is only one book that will mature us in Christ, and that is the Bible. We must be careful not to replace God’s Word with man’s word; our words will only raise our easily inflated egos but fall short in God’s sight. 2 Timothy 3:2 warns us not to become lovers of ourselves, so pick up the Bible and truly grow in the abundant life Christ promises.
