No Condemnation

| 0

Finally, in Christ, mankind can finally be freed from the shackles of sin and death and find life. Those who are in Christ walk according to the Spirit, and in the Spirit have life. Those who live according to the flesh will not find life.

No Condemnation

There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you (Romans 8:1-11).

Serving Jesus in His Church

| 0

Jesus is to be Lord of the church. The church is to embody Jesus to the world. Do we reflect the love of God in Christ to one another and to the world? How else can the world know of Him?

Authority, the Spirit, and the Word

| 0

God has spoken through the Spirit to our fathers in the prophets and now in Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3). There’s a lot of profound truth in there which is all too easy to elide; we do well to unpack the authority present in the Spirit and the Word of God.

Is Life All About the Here and Now?

| 0

For many, life is all about the here and now: the most recent news cycle, the belief that the present is superior to the past, and how this life is all there is to existence. The world lives by this ethic and acts accordingly. It cannot be so among the people of God.

Is Life All About Family?

The family was the basic unit of civilization, highly lauded and esteemed. The family may be under attack these days but the temptation of its idolization still exists. Is life all about family? What do the Scriptures say?

Is Life All About Work?

Work more; work harder; always be busy. Such seems to be the national mantra of America. But is life all about work? How can we live in a healthy way which glorifies God?

The Folly of the Christian Life

| 0

Blessed are the poor? Turn the other cheek? Love your enemies? Suffer without responding in kind? To the world, the life God expects Christians to live is sheer foolishness. But to those who are being saved it is the power of God.

Pining for Egypt

| 0

YHWH had rescued Israel from Egyptian slavery with a strong hand. Yet now they were in the wilderness. Every time a difficulty arose, they could have trusted in YHWH. Instead, they complained, remembering Egypt. It led to their death. We do well to heed their example lest we fall by the same pattern of disobedience.

The Assembly and the Christian Life

It is easy to associate “assembly” with “Christianity,” but is there not much more to Christianity than the assembly? How shall we view the assembly in terms of the greater life we live as Christians?

Youth and Age

Wisdom from Ecclesiastes

Youth is great and can be fun, but it is a vapor. Darker days are coming. Remember your Creator now.

Youth and Age

Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun. Yea, if a man live many years, let him rejoice in them all; but let him remember the days of darkness, for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth, and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thy heart, and in the sight of thine eyes; but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh; for youth and the dawn of life are vanity. Remember also thy Creator in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come, and the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, “I have no pleasure in them”; before the sun, and the light, and the moon, and the stars, are darkened, and the clouds return after the rain; in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows shall be darkened, and the doors shall be shut in the street; when the sound of the grinding is low, and one shall rise up at the voice of a bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; yea, they shall be afraid of that which is high, and terrors shall be in the way; and the almond-tree shall blossom, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail; because man goeth to his everlasting home, and the mourners go about the streets: before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern, and the dust returneth to the earth as it was, and the spirit returneth unto God who gave it.
“Vanity of vanities,” saith the Preacher; “all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:8)
