Those who add A Comforting Truth: To Know Him Is to Be Like Him to their devotional libraries will quickly determine how well this book, or, more accurately, the theme of this book, lives up to the title. The realization that the King of the universe so deeply yearns to abide with His wayward children will bring great comfort to every reader.
Perhaps there are times when our instincts kick in, and we once again question the various components of the gospel—where does faith end and behavior begin? How are we both saved by grace and judged by works? This volume is prompt and persistent in focusing on the bottom line—forging an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ; a relationship through which we will be transformed into the image, He originally intended.
During this study, the author does admit that God has set the standard for holiness very high; thus, there is no room for complacency or taking this matter lightly. However, he also stresses the importance of assurance and the promise that God can exalt us to seemingly overwhelming heights if we keep our hands clasped in His.
