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!

Assurance Instead of Doubt Oct23

Assurance Instead of...

It’s clear that the New Testament speaks of believers as assured, confident of their position in Christ, full of joy – even in the most dire of circumstances, suffering and persecution – and very far from being wretched, doubting and lacking assurance.

Galatians 4:1-7 Oct22

Galatians 4:1-7

Jesus, as God, was over the law, but as a man, He humbled Himself and put Himself under His own law. He did so for the sake of those under the law and its condemnation.

Believe the Gospel message, that for Christ’s sake, you are eternally liberated from curse and condemnation. Listen no longer to the accusations of Satan, the world, or your own consciences.

When I Am Afraid Oct18

When I Am Afraid

Repentance is a relational turn from darkness to light. Almost half of the time, it is connected with receiving the Holy Spirit – again a highly relational concept in terms of salvation, for the Spirit is the promised gift from God, who bonds believers to God by a relational union.

The Bible: God’s Wis...

The Proverbs were written within the context of the law (old covenant). It was a physical covenant to regulate the way of life of a physical people, and with it came physical promises that God would bless or curse them physically according to their obedience or disobedience (cf. Lev 26; Deut 28).

Part Five: Covenant Theology Tested Oct16

Part Five: Covenant ...

That covenant theology needs correction, modification, and explanation, even recasting, has been admitted by some Reformed teachers, John Murray for one. I would go further. Recasting? Rejecting, more like.

Galatians 3:10-14 Oct15

Galatians 3:10-14

There is no distinction of race in the church of Jesus Christ. It does not matter whether you are poor and a slave or rich enough to be free. It matters not whether you are male or female. There is no difference in your relationship to God.
