God Loved ~ He Gave ~ We Believe

I just returned from vacation and realized it has been a long time since I sent out my last post. I woke yesterday morning to the headlines of the worse mass shooting in United States history with over two-hundred and fifty people killed or wounded in the Los Vegas shooting. We live in a world […]

3:16

I was with some friends a few nights back and we got to talking about all the great verses in the Bible that were based on 3:16. Of course the most famous of the texts is found in John: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever […]

With all the lawsuits flying back and forth over the last few days in regards to President Trump’s executive orders it started me thinking about that great word of the law court “righteousness.” Righteousness by faith is a term that we throw around continually, but have we ever sat down and deciphered what it actually […]

Over the holidays I’ve been thinking about John 3:16 and its implications for humanity so I thought I’d write a bit about it before getting back to Hebrews. The text is probably the most familiar of any other texts in Scripture. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that […]

Relentless Tenderness of Jesus

God loves you unconditionally. This statement is one of the most revolutionizing concepts that a follower of Jesus could ever comprehend. It is easy to make the Gospel all about us, but that is not the true Gospel. The very core of Scripture is the exposure to a lost world that the great unfathomable God […]

How Easy Can It Be?

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 […]

…”Who do you say I am?” Matthew 16:15

13 “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16 Simon […]

God Made the First Move

Why do so many people reject Christianity? One of the major reasons may be that we Christians give the wrong impression about what Christianity is all about. The truth is that if we don’t really understand what Jesus did for us on the cross we really don’t know Him. And if we don’t know Him […]

Amazing Grace Indeed!

The last post really hit a cord with quite a number of you. It seems that many of us have gone through the same experience with legalism and have come out the other side battered and beaten. Last weekend a friend dropped by and we began talking about our experiences in a “non user friendly” […]

Plain Word of God – Nothing More, Nothing Less

Hermeneutics are the basic principles on how we interpret and study the Bible. These hermeneutics are foundational to understanding the texts of the Scripture in a cohesive and intelligent way. The problem numerous Christians get into when studying the Bible is they don’t have an understanding of the clear rules that apply to Bible study […]
