God’s Sovereign Grace

Children of DNA or Children of Promise? (Romans 9:6-13) “But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham because they are his offspring, but ‘Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.’ This means that…

Money Wise

Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.” (Proverbs 6:6–8 ESV) “The ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer.” (Proverbs 30:25) Consider…

Proverbs, Wisdom, and Sex

Defense – Don’t Play with Fire “And now, O sons, listen to me, and do not depart from the words of my mouth. Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house, lest you give your honor to others and your years to the merciless, lest strangers take…

Happy Father Day

I read something that said that the typical greeting “Happy Father’s Day” may miss the point.[1] OK.

Lots…

If He Gave His Best, He’ll Give the Rest

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32 ESV) How Christians Live on Romans 8:32 There…

He

He Glorified “And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.” (Romans 8:30 ESV) Of all the words in this verse, this one is the shocker and contains the main point of the whole thing. Why? Glorification is the Bible…

God’s Purpose is our Christlikeness

“For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.” (Romans 8:29 ESV) How do we conform to the likeness of Christ? Let me summarize it with this, “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory…
