When a Christian sins, he does not lose his salvation, but his joy and fellowship with God are gone.
Backsliding can happen to any believer. But God is a God of restoration. He longs to see the restored backslider rising above the failures of the past and living a Spirit-filled life. This booklet describes practical steps to bring you back into fellowship with God.
For over fifty-eight years, William MacDonald addressed the key issues of Christianity in clear and simple terms. Leaving a promising business career for the Lord Jesus, he has traveled worldwide, proclaiming the unsearchable riches of Christ. His more than eighty works are characterized by an economy of words that only comes by a major time investment in the Word. Although William MacDonald went to be with the Lord in 2008, his writing ministry continues to instruct and teach thousands of people today.
