Item description for God's Plans for You by J. I. Packer...

Though in all things God's Word is the final authority, our Christian tradition, as inherited from centuries of careful reflection and endeavoring to be true to the teaching of Scripture, can greatly enlighten us. Nowhere is this blend of respectful listening to the wisdom of the past and faithfulness to the Bible more necessary than in our contemporary reformulations of the doctrine of God's person. Bruce Ware believes that while tradition's emphasis on God's metaphysical perfection and His supremacy over the world is correct, we must refine our understanding of the way in which He relates to us. While retaining the deepest concerns of the historic tradition, Ware offers a more rational view of God's dealings with His children--a view that is reflected in Scripture's own testimony of Him. Ware then applies this concept of real divine exaltation and real divine-human relationship to the areas of our prayer life, confidence in God and His guidance of u

Publishers Description

To the world it means that the perfect plan of salvation has been provided . . .
"I declare unto you the gospel . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures." "1 Corinthians 15:1-4"
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." "Romans 5:8"

To God it means that He is satisfied with the work of His Son . . .
"Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the spirit." "1 Peter 3:18"

To the believer it is the promise of everlasting life . . .
Jesus promises, "Because I live, you shall live also." "John 14:19" "He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life." "John 5:24"

To you it is a challenge to believe . . .
Jesus claims, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." "John 11:25"
"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." "Romans 10:9"

You can know the true meaning of Easter in your life today by taking these steps: "Recognize" that without Christ you are separated from God. In honest repentance admit your need to be saved: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "Realize" that God loves you, and believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). "Receive" the risen Christ into your life by faith, and trust Him as your Savior: "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).
