From the Inside Out

We received a letter today from a listener who writes: “I still don’t get the difference between the old covenant and the new. Why am I living in the new and not the old?” Through the New Covenant we’re not trying to obey Moses, we’re not trying to uphold the Law, we are accepting the obedience of Jesus Christ so that we now live from the inside out.
* A Canadian listener asks about those who died before Christ came. Did they go to Heaven or Hell?
* How does forgiveness work? Is it judicial or parental? Are all our sins included? * Why do some still cling to the moral law and positional theology?

Hope is a Guarantee

Mark wrote: “I was searching so hard for the meaning of salvation and what meant to be saved. I searched the radio dial and found Basic Gospel.” Thank you to our donors who support the ministry to connect people like Mark to the truth of the Gospel.
* 2 Corinthians 3:12 ” Since we have such a hope, we are very bold…” We’re free to tell the world about Jesus.
* Can you elaborate on Colossians 1:27 in regard to hope? “To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
* There is a big gap between me being angry with someone and then remembering to forgive them. Is there any quicker way to forgive?
* I still have trouble with Romans 8:11. IF the spirit of God lives in you. I struggle with this “IF” all the time. * Join us in Israel May 29 – June 6, 2019
* What is the full meaning of Hebrews 7:25….Jesus always lives to make intercession for us?

The Veil is Lifted

In 2 Corinthians 3 Paul really lays out this New Covenant. Paul was out to deliver the message of new life. And he writes about the contrasts between the old and the new. “But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts.” vs. 12-16

Ephesians – 4:17-32: Put Off, Put On

Ephesians 2:1-3 is a passage of contrast. Once you come to Christ, you are to put off (renounce) the old man. In other words, to count yourself dead to sin, which was your former way of life. Instead, you put on (display) the new you which was created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Better in Every Way

Do you still listen to cassette tapes? No, cassettes have been replaced by something better. It’s the same with the Old and New Covenants. Hebrews 8:13 says “By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.” We no longer are under the requirements of the Old Covenant but are free to live in the New Covenant which is better in every way.
* Is is possible to get closer to Jesus? If you were once close and now are far away, can you come back? * Daniel shares his story of coming to understand who he is in Christ.

The Law Made Nothing Perfect

Do you characterize your Christian life with these words: “It’s a life of work and striving for acceptance.?” We’ve got good news for you. Hebrews 7:18,19 “For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.”
* Andrew asks how to deal with a Christian who does things contrary to their belief?
