38 “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses. 40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen […]

This Is the Will of Our God and Father

“Who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,” Galatians 1:4 Knowing verse three is talking about Jesus would we really need anything more to understand the gospel? I’ve been studying Galatians fairly extensively over the last number of months and […]

We Are Beggars Who Dance in the Grace of Jesus Christ!

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 […]

1 “Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are […]

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 […]

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture says, Whosoever believeth on him shall […]

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 […]

17 “Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away. Look, all things have become new. 18 All this is from God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling […]

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.

One of the most interesting and exciting books in the Bible is the book of Hebrews. One of the intriguing aspects of the book is that no one really knows who wrote it, the exact time it was written and to whom the book was written. Traditionally, the writing of the book is associated with […]
