The Worst Injustice of All Time It would be the worst injustice of all time if sin got away with what it has done. Justice demands that sin gets what it deserves, if sin is to receive its due payment. The Apostle Paul tells us what that payment is. “For the wages of sin is … Read more

Whom Shall We Serve Whom we serve determines our destiny. “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” (Romans 6:16) When we come to belief in Jesus Christ we are … Read more

Yielded and Submitted It’s not that we are to just avoid sin, but rather what the Apostle Paul commands is that we are to resist it, that is, no longer allow ourselves to be at its disposal. Therefore, let’s be careful not to allow sin to reign in our mortal bodies, that we should obey … Read more

Have You Been Reckoned? The word “reckon” is used by the Apostle Paul several times in chapter four speaking about Jesus’ righteousness being counted and imputed unto us by faith (Romans 4:2-25). “Reckoned” is an accounting term implying something being charged to someone’s account. In chapter six Paul is again using this word talking about … Read more

We Shall Live With Christ The conclusion of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection is that for all those who believe in Him are now dead to sin and alive in Christ, which means that they shall live with Christ throughout all eternity beginning with their acceptance and belief. Think about it – the reality is … Read more

Kill the Old Man Now the term, “old man” has nothing to do with age, but everything to do with what happened to us ages ago. The Apostle Paul uses this phrase on three occasions in three different letters all referring to the old life of sin that Paul says was crucified, that is, it … Read more

A Whole New Way Baptism is a symbolic picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For a believer in Jesus Christ, being submerged under the water is to proclaim to the world that they have died to self and have been buried in Christ. Being raised from the water is then the … Read more

The Two Aren’t Compatible When we sin we abuse God’s grace. When we believe that God’s grace gives us free reign and encourages sin; then we either don’t understand God’s grace, or we abuse the grace and mercy of God. When a person comes into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, it doesn’t mean that … Read more

God’s Greater Grace What the law was unable to do, God’s grace succeeded. That is what the Apostle Paul makes sure we know in one of the most glorious truths found in the Bible. “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20b). Paul compares Adam’s sin to the righteous sacrifice of Jesus Christ … Read more

Adam’s Bad Brings God’s Good The Apostle Paul brings about a most interesting comparison between Adam, the first man, and Jesus Christ, the second man; calling Jesus, God’s gift to the human race. Adam’s sin brought about death to humanity, but Jesus’s death, is God’s gift to humanity, bringing life and righteousness to all who … Read more

Pivotal Points in History If not for the second, the first would have killed us. This is Paul’s summation when talking about God’s love for us. Because of Adam, sin entered humanity, and that sin nature was then passed down to every generation that followed. “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, … Read more

No Resurrection, No Salvation “For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Romans 5:10). God reconciled us, not only through His death, but also through His life. The word “reconciled” means primarily to exchange. … Read more

An Unbelievable Love God proved His love for us, in that while we were His enemies, He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us so that we can be made right with Him. Now, we know the words, but do we realize just how unbelievable that love really is? As parents we give our … Read more



January 30, 2019

A Most Uncommon Love The Apostle Paul declares the depth of God’s unbelievable love, and it’s probably the clearest definition we can find of “agape,” or God’s unconditional love. “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps … Read more

No Shame in Hope’s Game Biblical hope is the confident assurance and anticipation knowing for a certainty that no matter what, God will always keep His promise. This assurance and anticipation happens the closer a believer draws near to God through the tribulations of life, which was Paul’s point when he said that tribulation produces … Read more

Transformational Trials No matter what you may be going through, it doesn’t have to be discouraging. Trials no longer need to send you to the dungeon of despair, or the swamp of sadness. Trials no longer need to send you spiraling into hopelessness. Instead we can approach the trials and tribulations of life with the … Read more

The Hope of Glory Having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God (Romans 5:1-2). By faith in Jesus Christ we now have access into … Read more

Peace With God (2) What does it mean to have peace with God? The Apostle Paul said, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). To have peace with God is something that the human race has strived for from the very beginning when Adam … Read more

Jesus Christ: The Ideal “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). Jesus Christ was the Ideal man so that He could become man’s Ideal sacrifice and thus becoming God’s Ideal righteousness for all who believe. In the beginning Adam blew it, and because of … Read more

The Bible’s Purpose The Bible makes it clear that while man wrote down the words that are found within, God is the one who inspired those who wrote it. “Prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21). This … Read more
