Description
There is no promise that this journey will always be pleasant. There will be hardships, temptations, and sorrows. At the same time there will be joy, peace, and blessing. Greatest of all, Christ will be with us to care for us and provide all our needs every step of the way. He will never leave us nor forsake us. This journey can either be a thrilling experience or dull and uninteresting. Actually, to a large degree it will depend on what we make it. We have a choice of victory or defeat. What you will read in the following pages will offer positive suggestions for victory in your new life. Take them to heart and do your best to follow through in the strength of the Lord.

Summary
Is there an alternative to the "up-on-the-mountain-top, down-in-the-valley" experience of many Christians? Veteran pastor and speaker J. Allen Blair presents another choice -- the choice to live consistently in spite of life's ups and downs. Using fourteen key profiles of the believer found in the New Testament, Dr. Blair demonstrates that spiritual growth and joy can be the norm not the exception.

Excerpt
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you have made the most important decision of your entire life. Those who have experienced this great salvation should be eternally grateful. Think what you were without Christ, but consider what you are by God's grace. Paul reminded the Ephesians-and ss-"And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: . . . God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Chris, (by grace ye are saved;)" (Eph.2;l-2,4-5). We were on our way to hell, and God in His mercy and love delivered us from the penalty and power of sin. Following our salvation experience, we begin a journey thatwill eventually take us into the visible presence of Christ.
