Whether we’re rich or poor, married or single, in a position of great influence or not—all of us face temptation in the areas of money, sex and power. They are the dangerous opportunities of our time—opportunities to destroy our own souls, or to experience the true joy of using them for God’s glory. When we have the blazing glory of Christ at the center of our spiritual solar system, the planets of money, sex and power find their true and beautiful orbits.
This book is for every Christian and will help you to wake up to the all-satisfying glory of God, and discover what you were made for.
1. Definitions and Foundations
2. The Pleasure-Destroying Dangers of Sex
3. The Wealth-Destroying Dangers of Money
4. The Self-Destroying Dangers of Power
5. Deliverance: The Return of the Sun to the Center
6. Deployment: The New Orbits for Money, Sex, and Power
Three precious gifts of God. Three dangers ready to destroy our pleasure, our wealth, our souls. Three beautiful possibilities for worship and love.
The difference? Living in the light — “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” — satisfying the soul, setting us free, celebrating God, sending us to serve. This is the blazing sun at the center of all things, and the reality that keeps all the planets flying joyfully in their place.
