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 […]

Salvation Comes When We Turn To Christ

“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.” Isaiah 45:22 We live in a world where most people look unto themselves for salvation, success, fame, and prosperity. But Isaiah understood that the only true salvation comes from God. It was in a small […]

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 […]

All That You Need

 “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 […]

Justification – From Luther to Now…

by Ladd

“Since the gospel stands at the heart of Christian faith, Luther and other Reformers regarded the debate concerning justification as one involving an essential truth of Christianity, as a doctrine no less essential than that of the Trinity or the dual natures of Christ. Without the gospel, the church falls. Without the gospel, the church […]

I draw inspiration for many of these posts from conversations that take place in our Bible study groups. Last week we ended up discussing “guilt” and suddenly I discovered I wasn’t the only one who is plagued with this feeling. We can feel guilty for all types of things but amongst Christians we seem to […]

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 […]

Approach God’s Throne of Grace with Confidence

14 “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, […]

Idols of Our Own Heart

One of the things we, as Christians, are very good at is beating ourselves up over failure and sin. I think, for most of us who have tendencies in that area, the problem stems from believing that somehow we do not live up to God’s standards. We believe we are saved by grace alone, but […]

I Love John 3:16!

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 […]
