Devoted to God: Blueprints for Sanctification (The Banner of Truth Trust, 2016)

Devoted to God is Sinclair Ferguson‘s contribution on the subject of the believer’s sanctification. Ferguson is a pastor-theologian. He has ability to both grasp biblical truth and to communicate that truth to the Christian community.

The author intends to provide a manual of biblical teaching on holiness. The reader is intended to learn how to glorify and enjoy God by growing in holiness. Since the Lord is holy, we are to be holy.

God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are often too full to receive them.

Augustine

Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.

Martin Luther

Mark 1:12-13

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

Mark 1:2-8

As it is written in Isaiah the prophet,

“Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
  who will prepare your way,
the voice of one crying in the wilderness:
  ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
  make his paths straight,’”

John appeared, baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea and all Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Prodigal pilgrims know well what it is to fall. But thanks be to God, we know what it means to rise again.

An eternal future awaits those who fear God. What he will provide is far superior to what sinners may possess today.
