“Becoming a Christian means being sick of your sin, longing for forgiveness and rescue from present evil and future hell, and affirming your commitment to the lordship of Christ to the point where you are willing to forsake everything. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it isn’t just holding up your hand or walking down an aisle and saying, ‘I love Jesus.’” —John MacArthur
Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur brings his deep knowledge of Scripture to this foundational subject. Step by step, he walks through the impact of God’s sovereignty, our submission, the characteristics of holy living, and our assurance of salvation. MacArthur makes the case that the Christian life is full and rich—but not easy. It requires sacrifice, perseverance, and transformation in the ongoing process of becoming more like Christ. And it is absolutely worth the cost.

John MacAuthur shares the thoughts of Calvin regarding salvation, the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus, living a life of holiness and the necessity of knowing your are going to heaven, or assurance.
Although the title says this book is about the Lordship of Christ I have to say it is more about the Assurance of the Believer. Knowing not only why and how you came to salvation but more so that once saved you are assured to go to Heaven.
MacAuthur would say one should strive to be Sanctified through the leading of the Holy Spirit and live a Holy Life, but that Sactification is a life long process not a single event like Salvation.
Assurance is necessary to stop doubt about ones future and allow one to strive for the prize of the high calling of Christ Jesus and too, while on earth, live a Holy Sanctified Life.
