Learning Christ and Living for His Glory

This is a series of sermons containing a comprehensive Puritan and Reformed vision of the Christian life. It is the largest work available on the Christian life and is drawn from many parts of Scripture, including Jesus Sermon on the Mount and Eph.4. It is an elaboration of John Calvin’s very small Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life. It is wise and profitable to read that book over first. I hope in the future to have the sermons edited for publication and placed on the website for free. Eventually, when it is published in book form it would consist of well over 2000 pages; or 4 volumes of over 500 pages each. This would be almost twice as large as John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion. I hardly think the average Christian is going to read such a voluminous work of Puritan theology, so it is best to listen to these in sermon form. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it.” The reason for such a large and massive series of sermons covering an entire theology of the Christian life is a result of a great deal of study, prayer, and learning over the years for my own personal blessing and sanctification in following Christ and living the Christian life; but also because of the sad reality that there are many Christians who struggle in the Christian life. And so I saw a great need for such a comprehensive work on the subject. There are very few subjects that I do not cover in this work. In fact, this is the largest work on The Christian Life ever to be accomplished. And I hope and pray that Christians will make use of it, even as they learn from other godly, Reformed, and Puritan works on what it means to live the Christian life, to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, take up the cross, and to live for the glory of God in the enjoyment of communion with Him.
