My life alongside God's word, volume 1

Introduction, Chapter Index and 'How to use this book'.


Every Christian must live as God wants them to. The Bible does not allow us to be conformed to all the other people around us. We are slaves of our King – the Lord Jesus Christ. This means we must live differently.

I pray that this little book will help my readers to think Christianly about day to day living. Only when we obey God, rather than drift along with all human beings around us, will our Christianity shine brightly as an attractive alternative to any life without Jesus Christ as Lord and Master.

1 Peter 2:11-12, “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though the accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us”.

(All Scripture quotations from New International Version 2001 edition).

Rev. Colin Salter, M.A., Redruth, Cornwall. July 2013.

How to use this book

When you walk beside a river you can often see many reflections.

The opposite bank appears twice, once the right way up, the other time upside down. The same is true of boats as they make their way up and down stream. Clouds scud along in the sky and apparently “in the river”. Even the brilliant sun shines from above and below – “in the water” without its fire being put out.

When you put your life alongside His word, the Bible, God will show you a true reflection of how Christian you appear to be. As He shows you what you need to know, ask Him to help you change your life for the better. This exercise will then have been worthwhile.
