When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Two Books

Tortured for Christ-
I started reading this book a long time ago and for some reason I put it down and didn't start reading it again until a few days ago.  It was interesting, but I think one reason I put it down was because it was really hard to read about all the persecutions and torture and I needed a break. 
But this book was good to read.  It was a good reminder that this place is not our home, that we all will face trials and hardships, and that we have our hope in Christ!


Four; A divergent collection:
 This book told us a bit about Four's (from the Divergent series) choices and experiences  before and after he became Dauntless.  Even his feelings when meeting Tris.
I enjoyed this book a lot, but there was a few things to beware of in this book too, though it wasn't as bad as the Divergent series.
