The Pilgrim's Path
by Ryan Habbena. 178 pages. $18.95.
Jesus commands us to walk by the Spirit. But how, exactly, do we do that?
All believers in Jesus Christ are pilgrims. No longer constituents of this world, we are citizens of His kingdom in a foreign land. As pilgrims, the apostle Peter grants us clear direction: “Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul” (1 Peter 2:11). With this being our divine directive, we become well aware of our shortcomings and often concur with the apostle Paul: “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Romans 7:24).
Yet, there is good news. By the power of the King, “we have been granted everything pertaining to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3) and given instructions to help us navigate the path before us.
The apostle Paul gives a decisive and direct way to pursue sanctification: “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16).
In this book, author and pastor Ryan Habbena unpacks the vast significance of this command. Drawing upon the rich heritage of teaching that has gone before us, yet ultimately focusing on the Scripture’s sure guidance, Habbena teaches both what this command means and how we are called to walk God’s chosen way for sanctification and spiritual growth.
Beneficial for both new and seasoned believers, The Pilgrim’s Path is a handbook of discipleship, offering clear instruction on how we are called to “walk by the Spirit” and thereby be conformed to the glorious image of the King.
Habbena is pastor of preaching and teaching at Conquering King Fellowship in St. Paul, MN.
