Zeke Lam contends that the biggest problem in the Church today is the lack of submission to the will of God. Instead of being transformed by the renewing of their minds, too many Christians are conformed to the world. Even many churches are selective in what parts of the Word of God they believe and practice. Putting personal opinion and desire above God’s Word is idolatry just as much as wooden idols of earlier times. Our purpose in life is to bring glory to God, and we can do that only when we submit our lives to His will. Often we don’t understand why we go through trials and tribulations, but that’s because we don’t see the big picture. And sometimes when we have success, we take the credit for it ourselves when in truth we can do nothing on our own without the help of God.
I highly recommend this book to Christians who want to deepen their relationship with the Lord.
Disclosure: I received an electronic review copy from the author’s publicist, but that in no way influenced my review.
