In contrast to the laid-back form of Christianity often seen today, J.I. Packer attempts to shake Christians out of their complacency with biblical reflections on life’s tough issues. God’s Plans for You discusses topics like pleasure, health, disappointment, and holiness. Packer maps out difficult situations—superimposing relevant biblical teachings for study.

“anti-intellectual, feeling-oriented, short-term mentality of today’s secular culture,” (Page 93)

“God made life, and God alone can tell us its meaning. If we are to make sense of life in this world, then, we must know about God. And if we want to know about God, we must turn to the Bible.” (Page 18)

“The principle is that the right course is always to choose the wisest means to the noblest end, namely the advancing of God’s kingdom and glory.” (Pages 91–92)

“The reason it cannot be right for man to live for himself, as if he were God, is because he is not God. However, it cannot be wrong for God to seek his own glory, simply because he is God. Those who insist that God should not seek his glory in all things are really asking that he cease to be God. And there is no greater blasphemy than to will that.” (Page 29)

“This is the plan of God, says the Bible. It cannot be thwarted by human sin, because God made a way for human sin itself to be a part of the plan, and defiance of God’s revealed will is used by God for the furtherance of his will.” (Page 21)
