Clarifying Salvation: Regeneration – I must be born again (John 2:23-3:10)

Publish on
Regeneration is the act in which God secretly and sovereignly imparts spiritual life to those who have been called. The gospel of John calls it being "born again"...which just seems weird. We need a second birth? How does that work? Let's get some clarity about how being "born from above" is part of salvation. Please…

Publish on
There is great power in God's call to save you. It's firm and unyielding - more like a summons to appear in court. It's also gentle and easy - a call to rest after a long struggle. As we hear God's call to salvation, it gives hope that all things will work together for good.…

Clarifying Salvation: Election – God Chose Me, (Ephesians 2:1-9) – (Ephesians 1:3-7)

Publish on
Receiving salvation is simple - repent and believe, by faith, in the gospel of Jesus. What it takes to save you is more involved. We can liken it to a simple fish. A fish is a fish. But what makes up that fish? Many parts. If we pulled the fish apart, we can study each element that…

Unstoppable Finale – Acts 28

Publish on
This Sunday is the finale - the final act, the concluding chapter - of the Book of Acts series!  So it's odd to title it "unstoppable." However, it's an appropriate title. The key word in Acts is "movement" and it's not supposed to stop. Acts records how one generation was "Christ's witnesses" (Acts 1:8) and…

I Can Trust God to Protect Me – Acts 27

Publish on
Where are you looking for your protection? Life has many dangers and we are weak. So we often build our own protective shields - avoidance, numbness, aggression - that often make things worse. What if we could trust God to protect us instead?

Making a Defense of My Faith – Acts 26

Publish on
Are you prepared to make a defense of your faith? Would it be a philosophical defense, or maybe archeological or cosmological? What would your defense be? While that may be overwhelming for some (and we are thankful for others who do that well), there is a simple, Spirit-directed way to give a defense of our faith. Check…

Faithful Witness – Mark 2:1-12

Publish on
The Book of Acts tells the story of Faithful Witnesses who spread the Gospel throughout the known world. Many times we know that we are to be a faithful witness, but struggle actually doing it. When we have a proper understanding of what is at stake and are properly motivated, failure turns into faithfulness.

Wisdom for the Suffering – Ecclesiastes 6:10-7:14

Publish on
Meaningless, Meaningless, everything is Meaningless are words ever so familiar to us from the book of Ecclesiastes. It is noteworthy that the author who says that so much in life is vanity ascribes much meaning to suffering. When we are faced with adversity we often ask: Where are you God? Why Me? Is this pain…
