Everything You Need

This passage has always encouraged me in my walk with the Lord. “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3). Before coming to Christ, we had an emptiness inside of us. The reason is that we didn’t have life itself. But now through faith in Jesus Christ we have everything we need to live the abundant life to the full. All this is the result of God’s grace through Jesus Christ.
* Clay in Texas asks about Malachi 3:10. Why do pastors use that passage instead of teaching the grace of giving.
* Duane in Ft Worth heard a message where the teacher said if a person doesn’t reach out to others with the news of Jesus, they would lose their salvation. Is that correct? * Gregory asks what is the third purpose of the law?

The Control Of Grace

Paul said “sin will have no dominion over you for you are not under law but under grace.” We are no match for sin’s power; it takes resurrection power. Through Jesus’ resurrection power, we have escaped the grip of sin. We are now operating by grace through faith
* Lee in Texas called to express his gratitude for Basic Gospel and for the United Conference.
* Christina asks for explanation of 1 John 2:3, 4. Christina called to express her appreciation for the conference. She came away with a deep assurance that God truly loves her.
* Alex in California asks about a new church he visited. Is it OK for a woman to be a pastor if they are teaching the grace of God?

Christ Lives in Me

Thanks to all who attended the conference. It was a very special event. We got to meet many people who watch us online. I got to share Galatians 2:20 which is really a summary of all we teach. “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
* Kay has been told that she and her husband aren’t welcome at her daughter’s home because of vaccine difference. What can she do?
* Tracy shares his experience at the conference and coming to learn how to rest in Christ. * What’s your take on praying in tongues privately?

The Top Ten: Exodus 33:12- 34:9

Exodus chapter 33 lays out the interaction between the Lord and Moses. New Testament writers refer back to this relationship to share with us what we have in Christ Jesus. In this passage is full of substance relating to the very presence of Christ in us, the hope of glory.

Justified Freely by His Grace

One of the areas that religion has it all wrong is righteousness. Righteousness is God’s to give and not ours to earn. Religion claims that we can earn it. But that’s not how righteousness works. Aren’t you glad? “But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, but it is the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; …” Romans 3:21-26 * Could you explain Romans 11:19-24 to me?
* Does every born again person have the Holy Spirit? If so why do some say “you are saved but now you need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit”? * How significant are “feelings” in a Christian relationship/marriage?

In His Righteousness

God has taken the initiate to reach out to us through his love and grace. We have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. But we see religious practices – man trying to reach up to God – all over the world. However what we learn in Scripture is that God has taken the initiative towards us and provides His righteousness to us. No longer in the flesh, we now live in the spirit. * Is it a sin for a husband and wife to cross-dress?
* A writer asks about mothers being called “pregnant people”.
* I got a divorce and remarried – that means that I’m committing adultery, right? Will God forgive me of this if I repent? * Is it proper to celebrate the Lord’s supper outside of a church setting? * What is the proper way to understand 1 John 1:9?
* What is wrong with the statement, “God helps those who help themselves”?

Walking by Faith

Pleasing God is a beautiful adventure of trusting God and walking with Him. When I put my confidence in the finished work of Christ I am pleasing to God. We take all His promises by faith.
* “Is anyone in this room as righteous in the sight of God as Jesus Christ? Raise your hand.” Is this an accurate way to show our redemption and the righteousness we have in Christ * How can children and babies go to Heaven if we were all born sinners? * Who was the Lord’s prayer directed to?

Two Made One in Christ

Where did these manmade religions come into being? We need to go back to the beginning… to the story of Adam and Eve and the fall. Upon finding themselves naked they sewed fig leaves together and made loin cloths. They were trying to cover their shame from God. But it didn’t work. Only God was able to make the provision for their sin and for ours.
* The people who were baptized by Philip in water in “the name” of Jesus Christ, were they saved? Or, were they saved only after John and Peter laid their hands on them to receive the Holy Spirit?
* J argues against “once saved, always save”. He writes: “we can’t take it to the extreme and say that once we’re saved we can’t forfeit our salvation.” * UNITED October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/
* Are there two Gospels? One for the Jew and one for the Gentile? Where do people come up with this idea?
