“To the woman he said, ‘I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you’.” Genesis 3:16 OK, OK, I know this is a very inappropriate text for Mother’s Day but I have promised […]

The Unfailing Faithfulness of God!

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 […]

I’ve been thinking about the love of God now for a number of weeks and the more I meditate on it the more convinced I’ve become that we can’t even begin to fathom such love. Let’s talk about sin for a moment. Sin has a great many definitions in the Bible but I like the […]

The last post on the four views of the law generated a fair amount of spirited debate on my email. It seems a number of people believe that their purpose here on earth is to prove that God’s law is just and that Satan’s accusation, that the law is too difficult to be kept, is […]

A friend of mine was recently talking to a friend of his about grace and the joy of experiencing Christ when suddenly his friend blurted out, “that’s nice but lets talk about the meat of the Bible.” When my friend recounted the conversation to me in an email I was a bit shocked that anyone […]

17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come the old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.

In the Bible the idea of “walking” with someone has the meaning of friendship because you talk as you walk. Genesis 3:8 tells us that God walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and by extension we can say God had a friendship with the first parents. Sin broke that relationship because […]

The word in the New Testament usually translated repent is the Greek word metanoeo. It means to change your mind; reconsider; or to think differently. We usually think of repentance when someone has done something that they know is wrong and have come to their senses and realize the seriousness of what they’ve done. The […]
