In Christ there's nothing to hide, nothing to prove, nothing to lose. #EnjoyYourDay
"Faith is being conquered by the gospel." Anders Nygren
Your Brother rules the world, forgives all yr sins, redeems all yr mistakes & continues 2 speak kindly 2u (Gen 50:14-21). #EnjoyYourDay
Memorialist preaching: you don't actually offer Christ, you just bring to mind some of His works.
For evangelical Christianity the both/ands exist on the far side of some radical either/ors. This is the meaning of the "solas"
Baptism: I in Christ, once & 4all. Communion: Christ in me, continually. Both are words from beyond to a filthy, hungry beggar.
Faith is not a spiritual discipline. It's a spiritual desperation.
Rev 3:14 + Gen 1:1 = :D
Feeling empty, dry, hungry? You're meant to be. But Jesus is your Fulness, Fountain and Food. #EnjoyYourDay
The Bible never tells you to do anything 'for the sake of the marriage.' Instead, love your *spouse*. There's a difference.
John 1 does NOT say Now Jesus is the Ultimate revelation. It says that Always Jesus has been the Only revelation. Big Difference!
Where is Jesus in all this mess? Dunno but He's always more on your side than you are. Always
Where is Jesus in all this mess? At the deepest, darkest point.
Where is Jesus in all this mess? Standing for you against everything that got you into it. (Tho, madly, u still cling to much of it)
'Come and eat' says the Lord. 'You are not worthy. But you are welcome.'
Christ loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood. (Rev 1:5) #EnjoyYourDay
1) God wants all saved. 2) When He saves He does it all. 3) Hell is real. Three perfectly biblical truths 4u. What's difficult?
Christian or not, the assumption that we see things clearly is perhaps our biggest blind spot.
You know that death you fear? You died it 2000 years ago. Now you are raised, vindicated and reigning.
At some point I'd like to do a series of talks on these themes: Alone, Addicted, Apathetic, Anxious, Angry
Dear Christian, your sins and lawless acts I will remember no more. Love, your Father. (Heb 10:17)
The gates of hell will not prevail against the church. Gates don't advance. The church advances. Hell can't keep it out!
All mistakes will b redeemed. All sins will b forgiven. All sacrifices will b repaid 100-fold. So what do u want 2 do today?
Jesus did not say: 'Now that I've washed your feet, wash mine.' We don't pay it back. We pass it on.
Jesus does not put us in His debt. He redeems us. Now we can liberate others.
Promises are stronger than commands. "You must" means you might not. "You will" is certain.
Waiters don't just list the specials, they serve them up. Preachers: don't describe the gospel, dish it up!
Jn 12:47-50: Christ only comes 2 save, only brings Father's words of eternal life. Judgement is standing against God's life-giving purposes
"Fear not little flock, it's your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom." (Luke 12:32)

If u read Jn 8:1-11 assessing how Jesus solves a legal conundrum u r the Pharisees! No, read as the sinner caught redhanded &only J can save
Jesus is not just the start or the finish. He's the whole Way. He comprehends you & the Father and all distance between you
Sensational verse on election: "U only have I known (chosen) of all families of earth there4 I will punish u 4 all yr iniquities" (Amos 3:2)
Your Father is Saving Mercy personified, Jesus is Kindness on legs, the Spirit showers u with renewal & rebirth (Titus 3)
