Growing in Sanctification

What higher satisfaction is there than knowing that what we do and think is pleasing to God? But how can we, as imperfect Christians, ever hope to please a perfect God? Is it even possible in a world where temptations so often lead us astray? In this course of practical guidelines for Christian living, Dr. R.C. Sproul clearly identifies the struggles we all share in pleasing God and offers insights on how to overcome them.

About this course

Many people become Christians with the mistaken idea that everything is going to be easy and pain free from that point forward. Soon they discover, however, that it is a constant and ferocious battle with the world, the flesh, and the devil. Those who do not understand these enemies and their tactics cannot effectively fight them. In this course, Dr. R.C. Sproul offers help for the pursuit of holiness, and in so doing, hopes to encourage believers with the burdens they bear and the battle they face in their walk with Christ.

This course has been approved by the Association of Christian Schools International for one Continuing Education Unit.
