Amazing Grace

May 12th 2014 by Posted in Blog 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I had a very encouraging conversation with a thrilled believer. She had read a book about God’s grace and it was a delight to see her so stirred by what she saw there. She described how amazing it is that even though she was so guilty, the judge has paid the | Read More…

Looking Forward to Death

May 6th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

The last few days I’ve been reminded that death could happen for any one of us at any moment. Even a random, unthinkable event could take life in a blink of an eye. For those of us who live in the industrialized world, a near death experience or even a loss of a loved one | Read More…

This week’s entry was originally written by Ron on his blog: Spreading Goodness. It’s so good we wanted to share it! ——————————————————– The Council of Nicaea in 325 worked hard to summarize a sound understanding of the Triune God in the face of Arian error.

With Me

April 15th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

Luke knew how to write a Gospel.  Okay, all four of them did, but I’ve been looking at Luke this Easter.  I’ve been struck by his personal attributes of tenacious attention to detail and his tender awareness of people. As a physician and man of science he was a diligent researcher who sought out the | Read More…

Help

April 12th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

When I was growing up my grandparents had an in-ground pool in their backyard.  It was the place to be on a hot summer afternoon in Oregon.  Here the whole extended family would gather around good food and the coolness of the swimming pool. We all loved these days. As the family enjoyed each other | Read More…

Evangelising Me

April 2nd 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

The human problem is far greater and deeper than we’ve ever imagined.  Not only are we all guilty before God, but we are also dead-hearted toward God and we don’t have His Spirit uniting us with Christ or with each other.  This was not God’s design.  He made us to live in the freedom of | Read More…

Lovers of Love

March 28th 2014 by Posted in Blog 1 Comment

Near the end of the Song of Solomon the bride speaks of love as an uncontrollable force that cannot be quenched or overpowered. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, | Read More…

What do you think?

A feisty debate stirred the New England churches in 1636.  The question at stake was the nature of faith—what is it that makes a Christian? In an early exchange of letters between two of the pastors, Peter Bulkeley asked John Cotton whether he would agree that there must be “the work of faith in us | Read More…

Three Versions of Divine Marriage

March 13th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

The Bible’s favourite analogy for the relationship between God and His people is marriage.  We have certainly mentioned this before on this site.  God’s great plan is to call out a bride for His Son from a fallen and sinful humanity.  God’s great promise throughout the Bible is that you shall be my people, and | Read More…
