God commands a Christian to "put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof." Rom. 13:14 The character of Jesus Christ is to be bound to the life of each Christian, and the lusts of the flesh, which are in opposition to the character of Jesus Christ, are to be denied. To "put on" involves a life-filling, minute-by-minute application of the Word of God– through which strength of character is built. A young person must be busily engaged in putting into practice principles from God’s Word by forming habits of behaviors– these habits leading to character development.
CHRISTIAN CHARACTER is a book for boys and girls that provides an intensive examination of the character that should be found in the lives of Christian young people. CHRISTIAN CHARACTER is Scriptural, practical, and convicting; clearly examining the lives of young people who use the book, and then guiding them in setting short-term, specific goals. Lam. 3:40 CHRISTIAN CHARACTER is strongly supportive of the family and the local church. CHRISTIAN CHARACTER can be used by parents, home schools, Christian schools, churches, mission schools, and children’s homes with young people between the ages of ten and fourteen. This text also provides an excellent guide for family devotions for younger children. 175 pages, twenty-eight chapters. An Answer Key contains teaching ideas and answers for all Student Exercises. Available in print or as a PDF file.
