Jun 10, Becky rated it it was amazing Shelves: operationactuallybooks , reviews , vtchallenge , sproulreread. Every Christian should have a passion to please God. We are to delight in honoring Him. It should be our greatest desire to please our Redeemer. In Pleasing God, R. Sproul writes that "we all begin the Christian life with the intention of living in such a way to please God. But that we encounter obstacles along the way.
We meet with conflicts between what pleases us and and what pleases God. We need help in overcoming these obstacles. The premise is, of course, that our lives after conversion should differ from before our conversion, that being saved should change us, transform us. Sanctification is very much a process--a journey--believers are never instantly victorious and wholly holy! Even if we "win" victory through Christ over one area of sin in our lives, we're never completely, totally, absolutely free from sin in all areas of our lives.
The Christian life is a struggling life: our battle against self, sin, temptation, even Satan. It may not be popular to think of the Christian life being a battleground, but, it is true all the same. And though it may not be easy to admit: often our greatest foe is ourselves! Sproul opens the book with a Scripture illustration from the gospel of Mark: And they came to Bethsaida.
And some people brought to him a blind man and begged him to touch him. Mark Believers are like the blind man seeing "walking trees. He was, as we shall see, a representative of all Christians in their progress toward pleasing God. Our spiritual vision is clouded by ongoing sin. We do not see all things in sharp spiritual focus.

Regeneration is the beginning of a journey. It is a journey with successes and failures, with growth amid stumbling. At times, the progress seems painfully slow, but progress is there. There is a danger in thinking that we can live the Christian life in our own strength, in our own way. We all need to be reminded that we need to be led by the hand of Jesus. That though some things in the Christian life are instant--regeneration and justification come to mind--other things are a process, at times a very slow, very painful process. Sanctification is a journey, a life-long journey, a fighting and struggling journey.
