On and On with the Tweets. It’s relentless

Christian: Christ lives in you. #EnjoyYourDay

God does not dish out grace with a teaspoon. Your Father is a Fountain of life. #EnjoyYourDay

#1Samuel1 We think our spirits will lift when God gives us what we want. Hannah's spirits lifted when she gave God what she wanted.

A student just asked me to speak at her uni on the theme YOLO. Because I'm 1000 years old she added: It's an anagram of You Only Live Once

Resisting the urge to write back: No THESE are anagrams of you only live once:
Cue, yon evil loony
Venue: oily colony
Colon Envy: You Lie!

Jesus encamps around you (Ps 34:7). Before anything gets to you today, it has to go through Him. #EnjoyYourDay

A Judge saying "You may go" would mean relief. But the gospel is much deeper. In it a Father says "You may come" and it means rejoicing

Is physicalism true? I haven't made up my mind.

Today you're probably ambivalent about artificial intelligence, but one day it'll be make your mind up time.

It’s just as “finished” today as it was 2000 years ago. #EnjoyYourDay

- Folks must trust Jesus
- Amen
- So we must demand faith
- Wait, how do u /demand/ faith?
- Tell em 2 make a decision!
- Funny kinda faith

Faith is pulled out of us by the gospel, not pushed out of us by our resolve.

If you’re a Christian you are “in Christ”. And you can’t get closer than “in”. #EnjoyYourDay

Gen27: Rachel's role=key. Like H Spirit she initiates, makes pleasing offering (meal) & clothes Jacob in his elder bro. Jake brings only sin

The Risen Lord cooks breakfast for total failures (Jn 21). He hasnt changed in 2000 years. He loves u just the same. #EnjoyYourDay

If "Praying in the Spirit" is taught as something quite different from "Praying in the Son" might it betray a latent tritheism?

As surely as Christ saved you Apart from goodness, He saved you Into it.

    I looked up Col 1.22. Now isn't Paul speaking eschatologically? Doesn't 'to present you blameless and above reproach in his sight' mean that this will happen at the last judgement, and so it is contingent on our continuing in the faith. Yes this final judgement is brought forward in the present, we are justified by faith, but at the same time there is another reality that we are sinful and need to put off the old man, and continue in confessing our sins. There are some movements that take 'God sees us as blameless' to mean he ONLY sees us blameless and therefore we don't need to confess our sins. To understand these apparent contradictions we need to think eschatologically.

    I'd say "But now" puts this verse into the present.

    There is a distinction but it's not so much then versus now as "in Christ" versus "in Adam" or (which is the same thing) "by the Spirit" versus "according to the flesh".

    If we look at other 'blameless' references they seem set firmly in the future. E.g. 1.Cor 1.8 'blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus'; 1 Thes 3.13;5.23 'blameless....at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ'; 1 Tim 6.14 'blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing'; 2 Peter 3.14 'looking forward to these things (the day of the Lord) be diligent to be found....blameless. Given this evidence I believe Col 1.22 should be read as at the last judgement. In his sight is surely reminiscent of 'then face to face' 1 Cor 13.12. 'To present you' speaks of being presented before the judgement seat. Paul gives assurance that we will be blameless on judgement day 'He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it' 1 Thes 5.24. Peter exhorts us to be diligent to be blameless.
