Christ is your Life Oct31

Christ is your Life

If you are in Christ, you are a new creation. Your eyes have been opened. Your heart has been softened. The expected result is that you and I will see the universe in terms of that spiritual reality. We will see that God is at the center of all things, that life is found in him. And so we will seek, not the passing pleasures this life, but the glory of God in all things.

Human sexuality and marital love are good gifts from the Lord to his people. A good wife is from the Lord (Prov 18:22). He wants us to rejoice in marriage. Too often, especially in our day, marriage is mocked, twisted, and wrecked. But the Lord wants us to honor it and to give thanks for this rich blessing.

Old-Covenant Ruin of...

In spiritual things, how big can be the effect of small changes! It may take time, of course – it usually does take time for the full effect to be seen – but little sins cast long shadows. Beware of little innovations in the things of Christ! ‘A great work’, as Andrew Fuller rightly said, ‘may be hindered and stopped by little things. Little follies will spoil the whole (Eccles. 10:1)’.

Galatians 4:8-16 Oct28

Galatians 4:8-16

Paul’s letter of warning and rebuke to the Galatian church is motivated by his love of Christ and of them. It is now very strange that the same truth that, when they had received it, filled them with such joy and peace and made them highly esteem and love Paul (who had made it known to them), is causing them to view Paul as an enemy.

1 Peter 2:13-17 (I) Oct27

1 Peter 2:13-17 (I)

We regularly hear of believers in Christ being subjected to serious persecution in some countries. Would Peter encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ to rebel against the powers that be in such circumstances?

Adam was a king, gloriously arrayed, and ordained to reign. But sin cast him down from his lofty throne, and caused him the loss of his purple robe, his diadem and scepter.

The Dictator Within Oct25

The Dictator Within

We make everyday decisions from our wants, like deciding to have coffee or tea, or coming up with rational reasons to buy the car we can’t afford. Our hearts merely state what we want and expect their minions to make it happen (Matthew 15:10-20, Mark 7:14-23).

If you knew that a jigsaw puzzle had many pieces missing, you wouldn’t even make the attempt to put it together. It is thrown in the trash. The problem is that mankind in its thinking has said that without God, there are not any missing pieces!
