“Love”

Jeremiah 17:9

The rebirth is not a process; it is not a progressive move “God-ward,” neither is it a new way of life, an ideology of sorts. It is a singular act whereby God replaces the sick, wicked, deceitful heart we’ve all inherited from Adam, with a new heart: a heart indwelt by the Holy Spirit: a heart which desperately loves Jesus Christ and submits to His truth.

The Sovereignty of God in Salvation

This post might end up reading differently than you expected. I’m not going to go into an explanation of TULIP or new birth. There will be little or no exposition of scripture, just a story of Providence. Brothers and sisters, please pray for Maria. It’s July 27, 2010, I normally take the bus by 7:40 […]

Ephesians 2:8-9

Ephesians 2:8-9, For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast. Praise God for that! Hallelujah, Amen! I could stop right there, but I won’t. 🙂 This verse is packed with implications for your theology. Soteriology is […]

What a contrast to God whose understanding is infinite – Ps 147:5. Jesus Christ has never changed, and never will. While we […]

Christian Haiku

Ok, this is a bit off the beaten path, but tonight during the adult prayer meeting, it was my privilege to work with the children. Normally I preach for 30-40 minutes (they are a great practice audience), but since they already sat through Pastor Cuenin’s “Wednesday mini,” I figured I’d cut them a break. We […]
