It Starts With Love

“A life of faith is our love for God, resulting in dependency upon God, resulting in obedience to God.” Major Ian Thomas
* Rules and regulations do not put love in the heart. It is God’s love that produces our love for him. Knowing that God loves me results in my obedience, relying on him. We love because he first loved us.

Hard Passages – Part 9

The first “hard passage” is 1 John 5:16, 17. What is the ‘sin that leads to death’? Aren’t all sins forgiven? Context is important in this passage. The next passage is Matthew 22:1-14. Verse 14 says “Many are called but few are chosen”. Does God pick and choose who will receive salvation? Romans 9:14-16 is the last hard passage. “What shall we say then, is there injustice on God’s part?” Does this speak to predestination? This passage is not about individuals; it is about Jew and Gentiles.

Contend for the Faith

“I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.” Jude. Jesus didn’t come to make us better people.

God accepted the sacrifice Jesus made so that we can become beneficiaries of his sacrifice. * As believers, does the Word first´╗┐ go to our spirits or to our souls?

Advance the Good News

There are many aspects to the work we do in Christ. When we look at it, it’s truly a partnership in the Gospel.
