The book of James written by Jesus’ brother says little about Jesus and its focus is not on doctrine, but on how the Christian faith is to be lived on a day-to-day basis. It also gives good advice about what to do in the presence of temptation, trials, and persecution. This book teaches the importance of good works as the inevitable and essential fruit of salvation.

In Christian theology, sanctification is a state of separation unto God; all believers enter this state when they accept Christ. Sanctification is the effect of obedience to the Word of God in one’s life. It is the same as growing in the Lord, or spiritual maturity. God started the work of making us like Christ, and He is continuing it.
“Sanctification” is not an everyday word. In fact, it’s an idea that has little value in our me-focused, instant-gratification world. Yet regardless of trends, culture, or opinion, being sanctified (i.e. being set apart from the world) remains a vital part of our journey with Christ.
But what does this process look like? How do we begin? And is it even possible to live a life pleasing to God? Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul believe it’s not only possible, it’s our calling. Pleasing God delivers an in-depth look at
God’s plan and pathway for spiritual maturity. Clearing away the confusion of religion and dogma, Dr. Sproul reveals how every believer can experience authentic, lasting life-change through their relationship with God. Built on sound doctrine and rich in Biblical insights, Pleasing God offers a practical guide for anyone longing to live a life that honors their Savior.
How can imperfect people hope to please a perfect God? The answer is both simple and challenging: sanctification. “Pleasing God “takes an in-depth look at sanctification and its essential role in the life of every believer. Filled with Biblical insights, this release guides both new and seasoned Christians through God’s path for transforming His people.
Book: Pleasing GOD by R.C. Sproul
“THE BOOK OF DANIEL”
Facilitators: Kingsley Sackey & Rev Rose Ngonde
Meeting Day & Time: Sunday @ 8:00 am
Zoom Meeting: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/110566807?pwd=eU9PQWZra0xRTGgrTFkyK1V5SDFSdz09
The Book of Daniel was written by Daniel who had been living as a captive along with his three friends and many Jews in Babylon. They had been taken into captivity after the first siege of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar in 605 B.C. because, "God gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar".
While in captivity, without the slightest compromise, he faithfully served under the administration of three kings - Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, and Darius.
The Book depicts historical events during the 70 years of captivity, as well as prophecies from Daniel's day to the future establishment of the kingdom of God. In addition, it is a testimony to how God works out His purposes through His servants even in the courts of pagan rulers (Ref. Dan 2:21; 4:18)
The Book was written for two purposes:
- It is a testimonial to the sovereignty of the Lord our God even over powerful people and nations who do not acknowledge Him.
- It offers a message of hope to believers to trust in God's promise of preservation during troubled times, and ultimate restoration thereafter.
The Book does attract its share of critics who assert that it is not a book of prophecy but of history. Nevertheless, the book comes with some strong recommendations: Ezekiel singled out Daniel along with Noah and Job as a righteous man and wrote about his wisdom. Jesus also quoted Daniel in His Mount Olivet discourse, and referred to him as "the prophet". Indeed, Daniel's life may be characterized by Purpose, Prayer, and Prophecy.
