Let Light Shine Out of Darkness

We are to live as ambassadors in this world. Separate from the world. Paul puts it this way in 2 Corinthians 4:5-6 “For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
* Gerard wants to know if we will see God in three persons when we get to Heaven and references Revelation 5:7. * Kent asks if Genesis 1 and 2 are two different accounts or one.
* Garrett calls to say thanks for the ministry. Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – https://simplegospelsimplygrace.com/

Ministers of a New Covenant

We are New Covenant believers. Paul put it this way in 2 Corinthians 3:6 “… our sufficiency is from God, who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
* Jose calls to ask about the laying on of hands to receive the Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts.
* If I am always saved … then it doesn’t matter whether I obey New Covenant commands or not.

1 John – Part 4 – The Fruit of Life

The fruit of life in Christ is love. When you come to Christ, something has changed in your core. Your heart is new, you have been cleansed of all unrighteousness, and your heart wants to trust Jesus. The fruit of that is love for one another. We begin to love people that we didn’t love before. We see that in the example of Jew and Gentile. When the gospel hits Jewish and Gentile hearts, there is a love there that wasn’t there before. For an unbeliever, the fruit is not one of love, it is one of hate. We see that in the world today. That’s why John said “whoever hates his brother walks in darkness”.

The Power of Love in Full Force

Matthew 27:45- “Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ … ” * Don asks about total depravity and how he can help a friend overcome it.
* How do you reconcile the sin Adam committed to what we believers commit? Is there a difference? * Larry asks about 2 Peter 2:20-22 regarding losing one’s salvation.
* Why do many pastors insist on quoting Jesus saying he didn’t come to destroy the law but fulfill it, ostensibly to substantiate their belief that salvation includes keeping “principles of the law?”

Resurrection Reality

Yesterday we talked about the heart of man and wanted to follow up with a passage where Jesus really identifies our problem. Matthew 15:10-11 And he called the people to him and said to them, “Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.” What does God want to do with out hearts? He wants to anchor our hearts in the hope of the resurrection. * What does “Christ in you” mean? Colossians 1:27
* How do I surrender to whatever God has for me?
