The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

John Macarthur
Thomas Nelson

"Becoming a Christian means being sick of your sin, longing for forgiveness and rescue from present evil and future hell, and affirming your commitment to the Lordship of Christ to the point where you are willing to forsake everything. I've said it before and I'll say it again: it isn't just holding up your hand or walking down an aisle and saying, 'I love Jesus.'" ―John MacArthur
Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur brings his deep knowledge of Scripture to this foundational subject. Step by step, he walks through the impact of God's sovereignty, our submission, the characteristics of holy living, and our assurance of salvation. MacArthur makes the case that the Christian life is full and rich―but not easy. It requires sacrifice, perseverance, and transformation in the ongoing process of becoming more like Christ. And it is absolutely worth the cost.
The Truth About Series For decades, MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and a greater respect for God's truth. In The Truth About Series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God's character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith.

The Truth About the Lordship of Christ is an excellent book for any Christian. Macarthur delves deeply into the subject of lordship salvation and what it means in a short concise book. Macarthur introduces us to the sovereignty of God and our response with a balance of good writing and scripture. God is sovereign, and that is a great place to start this book. Next, he delves into justification and lordship, provides clear biblical support and direct easy to understand definitions. Then, he proceeds onto sanctification. Finally, he tackles what love and hate mean, and discusses the love of God in terms we don't often hear.

Each additional topic deals with another aspect of Jesus' lordship.... from daily submission, holy living, confession and restoration, to our ultimate destination.

This book is a must read for anyone who wants to follow Christ. We have so many teachings out there that are confusing or misleading people, and we need to read strong Biblical based teaching that seeks to show the truth of the gospel and salvation, which Macarthur has done in this book. I look forward to reading more in this series.

I received this book from for review and was not required to right a positive review.
