Vaughan Roberts explores seven of the difficulties Christians may have to endure and positive ways to deal with them.
The Bible warns of a mixed experience in this life. We live in a fallen world and have to fight continually against earthly temptations, but we do so as heaven's citizens, already enjoying some of salvation's great blessings.
Vaughan Roberts calls us to realism. Christians will struggle with battles such as image, lust and doubt. But he also urges us to seek strength from the Bible, by the Spirit and through God's people. We are weaker than we often acknowledge, but God is far stronger than we can possibly imagine.
