It's something for which you need motivation. This book by Paul White motivates us to put the effort into the Christian life. He encourages us to read the Bible and stick close to God in order to be motivated towards a life that is characterised by responsibility, honesty and purity. The choices and challenges that face you in this sinful world can be hard to tackle. But following God's word can make all the difference.
