Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Q&A from "Seeing With New Eyes"

[This past July, Justin Taylor published the Q&A section from David Powlison's Seeing With New Eyes as a series of posts on his blog. This Q&A section from Powlison's book is, in itself, an invaluable resource for sanctification and couseling. The following is a compilation of Taylor's posts, giving the entire Q&A section in sequential order.]

1. What's wrong with people?

2. Why do people do specific ungodly things?

3. What's wrong with wanting good things?

4. Why do our desires deceive us?

5. Is "lusts of the flesh" terminology practical?

6. Does each person have one "root sin"?

7. How do I know if a desire is inordinate rather than natural?

8. Why talk about the "heart" when the Bible says it's unknowable?

9. Doesn't the term "lusts" just apply to bodily appetites?

10. Can desires be habitual?

11. What's the relationship between fear and desire?

12. Do people ever have conflicting motives?
