The Gift of No Condemnation

John 8:11 “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” A woman caught in the act of adultery was brought before Jesus by the self righteous scribes and Pharisees. They tried to trap Him by posing a question that was difficult to answer: “Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should […]

You Cannot Live in Sin

Did you know that you cannot live in sin? Well that’s exactly what Paul says in the first two verses of chapter six! He anticipates the objection that grace encourages people to sin in order to get more grace. Apparently, some had accused Paul of encouraging sin in just this way (Rom 3:8), and he […]

You Are Perfect In God’s Eyes

Hebrews 10:12, 14, KJV But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God… For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. God sees you with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so honour His Word and the finished work of His […]

Wretchedness

“O wretched man that I am!” cried Paul, “who shall deliver me from this body of death?” (Ro 7:24) There is nothing more musical in the ears of the Lord. This cry is the most spiritual and the most scriptural cry a man can utter. He only utters it when he knows he can do […]

The Glory of the Unlikely (Revised)

Original by Glenn Davis. Perhaps the great glory of Christmas is that in the birth of His only Begotten, the Lord revealed to us that He is the God of the “unlikely”… For how unlikely is it that the King of the cosmos should be born in a stable normally reserved for animals which children’s […]

Transformations

To repent = μετανοέω = think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider. The Greek word also carries the meaning of aligning ones thoughts with God’s. My different repentance experiences have been as follows: From New Age to Jesus. That was a relief because I didn’t have to save myself any longer. From law to grace. […]

The Definition of Righteousness

Ge 15:6 And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness. Righteousness, what it isn’t. It isn’t what my two dictionaries say it is, ‘morality, adhering to moral principles’, or ‘morally right, very good’. Abraham’s life informs us that Abraham was not morally upright. If it was a case of being […]
