The Problem With Jesus

How will life unfold for us when we respond to God’s love through faith? Or, alternatively, what have we missed by living in relative independence from God? The question has been raised in the Bible—though it’s sometimes fogged over by a misapplication of predestination.

Why Should Anyone Listen to the Bible

There are few questions that are more important than the one stated by the title. A correct answer is crucial, both to this life and the afterlife. If the answer is, “There is no reason,” then a person must be prepared to also accept that there are no reasons behind human life, that we lack any significance, and that there is no hope.

The Unglamorous Christian Life

It doesn’t matter if we work part-time, full-time, are retired, whatever – we should always act in a way so that “outsiders” can say, “Say what you want about those Christians, but they know their jobs well, they work hard, they support their families and they contribute to society.”

His Kingdom is Forever

Those of us who are of the culture need to be careful that our guiding principle is not “my rights” but rather “God’s glory.” We are Christians and citizens of the Kingdom that cannot be shaken and we are here in this kingdom of men to draw attention to the excellencies of the King, Jesus.

DG’s LAB Project – March to May 2015

At Desiring God they continue to grow their LAB studies. As we’ve mentioned previously “Look at the Book” is a fantastic new online method of teaching the Bible. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher. We highly recommend to you the ministry of Desiring God and labors of John Piper.

Inheriting the Promises

We have a book full of promises made by God who cannot lie, and who has all the power to keep these promises. Now here’s the question: Why have we not entered into more of these promises? And the answer is in the first part of the verse, “That you may not be sluggish.”

Fourth Dimension of the Gospel

If grace is something God throws to us from a distance, then grace is just a commodity, a battery, a coin, a heavenly favour. But what does it mean to see grace as a who, rather than a what? God does not just give benefits in his nice-ness, He gives us Himself in His Son by His Spirit.
