Take a Firm Stand in the Grace of God

“… I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it.” 1 Peter 5:12 Peter has laid out the grace of God and woven it into the fabric of everyday life. There are many who struggle when difficulties come because they are sitting on the fence – they’ve never come to the point of saying, “Lord Jesus, I am yours and you are mine.” So Peter encourages us and reminds us of who we are. * Derron asks about the “Sermon on the Mount” and its application for us today. * Can you help explain Ananias and Saphira in the book of Acts?

Established in the Faith

Happy New Year to everyone. This is a great reminder that we live in a New Covenant. Paul sums it up, we are a “new creation. The old has gone and the new has come” 2 Corinthian 5:17 Paul further writes in Colossians 2:6, 7 “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” * Victoria writes to say “thanks”.
* If God is not counting our sins against us and we are not condemned, then why would we end up standing before Christ to give an account of the things we did, both good and bad? * Did Job get a new wife after she told him to “Curse God and die”?
* In light of the Supreme Court gay marriage decision, I struggle with how to address this with my children.

Welcome to the New

A special New Year’s Day broadcast from Basic Gospel.

I like the word “new.” I’ll bet you do too.

It is an exciting word, especially when it is attached to things like cars, houses, gadgets and even the New Year. We all like “new” things and we want “new” things.

Are you in Christ? If so, for you the old has gone and the new has come.
* A new life – Romans 6:4.

* A new identity – John 1:12.

* A new self – Ephesians 4:24.

* A new heart – Ezekiel 36:26.

* A new covenant – Hebrews 9:15.

* A new command – John 13:34.

* A new way – Romans 7:6.

Happy New Year from your friends at Basic Gospel

We want to proclaim this Gospel everyday.
