Are you living for your own pleasure or God’s?


pleasure   The title of the introduction, “The Priority of God in a World of Self”, summarizes Alistair Begg’s reason for writing “Made For His Pleasure”.  Where do we find meaning in a world that teaches us to look out for ourselves?

Begg offers ten benchmarks to measure our faith and, through personal testimony and anecdotes, teaches us how to live out our faith in a way that pleases God.  The benchmarks are:

  • Spiritual fitness
  • Prayer
  • Sacrifice
  • Relationships
  • Vocation
  • Suffering
  • The Narrow Way
  • Intellectualism and Materialism
  • Humility
  • Evangelism

The challenges and promises of God’s Word require endurance and perseverance. Begg helps us travel a spiritual path that leads us to a faith that meets with God’s approval.  After all, His approval is the only opinion that matters.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Moody Publishers, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
