 “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Galatians 6:14 Galatians is probably the first letter, which we still have, that Paul wrote and was written to try and correct the problem of adding to the […]

People sometimes ask me why I write so much about law and grace? Well the major reason is that to confuse the two of them leads to serious theological problems and those problems can lead to losing out on the Kingdom of God. Paul makes it clear in Galatians that to rely upon “works of […]

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 “If we are faithless, He remains faithful—for He cannot deny Himself.” 2 Timothy 2:13 “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9 “For […]

I’ve been thinking a great deal about the faithfulness of God lately and how the Bible is really all about Him. I know, we tend to make it about “us” and our salvation but it is really about the wonder, grace, compassion, and goodness of God who has never given up on us. In the […]

“And God spoke all these words, saying, ‘I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

We are saved by grace alone through faith alone. I don’t know how much easier that could possible be, and yet thousands of Christians struggle with the concept. I hear fairly often from people who believe that salvation consists of both justification and sanctification. They do not seem to be able to grasp the marvel […]

When God called the children of Israel to enter the Promised Land under Joshua’s leadership he called upon him and the people to be courageous and strong.

12 “Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. 14 For those who are led by the […]
