It’s Not About You

5 Jul

Every Christian I’ve met who believes they can lose their salvation has always given a reason that involves them. What if I commit suicide? What if I get a divorce? What if I stop believing? What if I…? You fill in the blank there, but it’s all the same. Every hypothetical scenario puts ourselves at the center of the equation. But our faithfulness to God is an old-covenant problem that is solved by the new.

Old Testament Faith

18 May

Interestingly, even Old Testament believers were justified by faith alone, apart from the law… Old Testament saints such as Abraham were made right because they put confidence in God and in a coming Messiah (Romans 4:13). Abraham lived long before the law, but he was declared righteous. So being right with God never had anything to do with the law.
