It’s All About Him

6 Jul

Complete in Himself, He chose to save us out of sheer love. His covenant is a unilateral covenant originated in the mind of God before time, initiated and achieved by God alone. The only reason behind His desire to make such a covenant, to bring sinful humans into a relationship at infinite cost to Himself, is His unconditional love for us.

Just Say Yes

17 Jun

Never say no to temptation; say yes to Jesus!… When you say no, you are drawing on your willpower, concentrating all the energy of your flesh to refuse the temptation. You are mustering all your human ability to do something to please God. But that isn’t the way the Christian life is lived. That is dead religion at its best!

You’ve Arrived!

23 May

Many believers live in the frustration of trying to arrive at where they already are… In meeting after meeting believers are urged to die with Christ, they go forward to pray and be prayed for instead of realizing that the Spirit placed them in Christ and, therefore, into His death and resurrection when they believed upon Jesus.

True North

10 May

The love of God… is the magnetic north of truth by which we fix our position as we stumble lost in the wilderness of the world… To know that His love for us depends on Him and not on us is the beginning of the way out of our futile, meaningless lives and religious despair.
