• There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.  For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do.

    - Romans 8:1-3

I Do Believe; Help My Unbelief!

How often in your life have you read this passage in Mark 9: 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this […]

Righteousness as a Gift

In my last post I discussed what happens when we believe the gospel of Jesus Christ and receive forgiveness on the basis of Christ’s performance. I explained that we are accepted by God, the Father, on the basis of Christ’s perfectly obedient life and his sacrificial death on the cross. I used the term, two-fold […]

Two-Fold Imputation

I have been reading J. D. Greear’s wonderfully simple book, Gospel. On page 44 he summarizes the thesis of his book in four points through his Gospel Prayer. I have been using this Gospel Prayer in many of my counseling sessions. If we believed these four points our lives would be transformed and our interactions […]

Shadow versus Reality

Part of my job as a counselor is to help people see the realities of their spiritual life in Christ. Of course, most people go to a counselor because they are struggling in their daily, earthly life and spiritual realities seem very abstract and distant. I think God ordains these earthly struggles to help us […]

Signs of a Genuinely Repentant Heart

This is from Jared Wilson’s blog at the Gospel Coalition.  His addition to the book review is so worth reading in its entirety. Jared’s comments: Here are 12 signs we have a genuinely repentant heart: 1. We name our sin as sin and do not spin it or excuse it, and further, we demonstrate “godly […]

God’s Grace is the Soil in Which Humility Grows

I just completed a Bible study on Ephesians entitled, “By His Wounds You Are Healed,” written by Wendy Alsup. I plan to skim through the study and share some of the nuggets of truth I am learning. Today I am sharing this quote from the last lesson, “If grace does not dominate your understanding of […]


Heart of a Servant Leader by C. John Miller

I love this book so much.  A friend encouraged me to read it and so I spent the last 3 months savoring each letter that Jack Miller sent to people through his ministry.  I felt like I was mentored by a very wise, gospel-centered brother in the Lord.  I have purchased 13 copies to date […]

Age of the Earth and an age old dilemma

R. C. Sproul wisely describes the appropriate interplay between special and natural revelation in this video. He implicitly states that all of God’s revelation is infallible but no interpreters of special and natural relevation are. Wisdom and humility instruct us to remember that.
